Illustrator Sashiko Patterns by SewDesuNe Illustrator Sashiko Patterns by SewDesuNe
:bulletpurple: BLOG :bulletred: ETSY :bulletgreen: TUMBLR :bulletred: FACEBOOK :bulletpurple:

These are some patterns I made for Illustrator in preparation for another project. They were inspired by sashiko designs, which is why they are only outlines on top of solid color. I made 17 different designs with different colors and sizes for each, making a total of 51 patterns.

The patterns are easy to use, but I have Illustrator 9.0 so my instructions may not work for you. What I have to do is open a new document in Illustrator, and go to Window / Swatch Libraries / Other Library... Then, open up the saved file entitled "Sashiko Patterns." It should bring up a box of the swatches for the patterns.

I hope you all enjoy them, and if you use them please credit back to me ^^; Contacting me would be even better, as I'd love to see how people are using the patterns. Also, please don't use my patterns for commercial use, I'm actually already planning on doing that in my own way.

Thanks for looking!

Hi! I'm planning to use your lovely patterns as background for a coursework poster. I you allow me to, how could I give you the right credit the best way possible? Cheers!

If it's for a poster, I'd say maybe a small watermark in the corner or some inconspicuous area? If that's not possible, no worries! I appreciate you asking and I don't mind not being credited in the case of a good cause such as this one :)

Hi I appreciate your kindness! I would need to insist. Your work made some great backgrounds possible.
I could even write down some URL in an area specially allocated for credits! Any name or URL in particular?

It has been FAR too long since I have used Illustrator regularly, (Think: Dinosaurs), and I am just getting back to it. I LOVE your patterns. I hope the commercial works out well, for you.

The data can be found inside the pattern swatches window, but nothing shows on the actual artboard. This was also made with an earlier version of Illustrator, so I hope that's not the problem.

No unfortunately :[ The file type is tailored for Illustrator, but you can always use the .jpeg files and the "define pattern" option to make them into pattern files :]

hi..i`ve been wanting to do some wallpaper for my bedroom and these patterns seem to be just wonderfull.. i`m currently using illustrator CS4 and i think thats there`s something wrong with the file or something else because when i open the file in the swatch library...the palette does not contain the patterns you publish in the image..am i doing something wrong?

i'm not sure what could be going wrong :[ though I did make the patterns in Illustrator CS3. I suppose there's a chance the file isn't working on later versions of Illustrator.
