New Pattern: Stars & Stripes

Finished a new coat variation last night: Stars & Stripes! Instead of making a complete coat, this is just the pattern layer that sits on top of the body/base coat. So it’s easy to put on and take off, which is preferable for seasonal things like Memorial Day or the 4th of July. Speaking of which, this was inspired by going shopping a few days ago in RL and seeing red, white, and blue merchandise in all the stores. I knew I wanted to do something patriotic, so I came up with this brush stroke design and transparent stars.

Technique-wise, this pattern was another new product for me. The left & right sides are separate images (instead of the right being a mirror image of the left), so I had to pay more attention to the seams, colors, and make sure both sides lined up and looked like one piece. I think I’ll make more pattern-only designs soon!
