Poinsettia pattern

This project started out with a sketch that I made for homework. The assignment was to draw something and note the shade forms. I used a blue colored paper, drew the outline, used white for where light hit directly and brown ochre for the shadow. I really liked the result so I replicated on the computer using Adobe Illustrator, patterned it and ordered fabric. I got the fabric made at Fabric on Demand. I finished the project up by purchasing some complementary fabrics and sewed a 241 Tote designed by Noodlehead.
