Pattern of Ice Cream Cones … Mmmm


It’s very fitting that my pattern for August is ice cream cones. I’ve gotten into the habit of having ice cream almost every night this Summer!

I created this pattern using the same process as last month’s pattern, Shells. I doodled the ice cream cones in my sketchbook, painted the backgrounds separately and then mashed them together and arranged them in Photoshop.

If you’ve missed them, I’ve been illustrating a pattern a month this year:

July – Shells
June – Echinacea
May – Sandcastles
April – Dahlias
March – Gardening
February – Valentine’s Day
January – Art Supplies

It helps to have the deadline of the end of the month. I wouldn’t be as motivated without it.

I entered the Sandcastle pattern into a Spoonflower contest a few months ago. I’d love to try another contest and upload more of my patterns onto Spoonflower. A goal to work towards before the end of the year. 🙂

  1. I like that you have a goal to create a different pattern each month! Your ice cream cones look yummy! 💜💚💙

  2. The added color on the ice cream is perfect. What fun fabric this pattern would make.

  3. I just looked at all of your patterns, they are fabulous. I’d like a blouse made in the art supply pattern. 😀
