Patterns are a design, motif or decoration, formed from regular repeated elements. They can also be naturally-occurring or a random arrangement of shapes, colors which have a regular or decorative effect. Patterns can be stripes, or lines, or alternating colors. The first project has a striped pattern of knots tied with plastic lacing. Next, make felt cookies with a polka dot pattern. Then add a chevron pattern to your art journal. Last, create a folding play mat with landscape patterns of a city scene around a lake.
