I had so much fun drawing this patchwork pattern after seeing it on Pinoxart’s instagram page. This was such an easy design to draw that I was able to draw it poolside while on vacation. You can make it even easier by keeping it to a single or smaller page. See below of the exact supplies and steps to make your own patchwork pattern drawing.

Directions for Patchwork Pattern Drawing

Step 1. Start by drawing curved, wavy lines vertically down the entire length of the page or sketchbook.

Step 2. Next, draw the same type of lines but horizontally across the page to create a board pattern.

Step 3. Fill in each space made by the pattern with a different color. I used brush acrylic paint pens but you could use any type of markers or colored pencils. I kept to a rainbow pattern for my colors but you could use any variety of random colors.

Step 4. Thicken all of the lines with a back liner pen. Because I used paint markers, I did this after I colored in each area so the paint marker wouldn’t overlap the black lines.

Step 5. Add small black circles above the middle of each line. I drew 2-4 circles depending on how long the line was. You’ll match each circle on the other side of the line.

Step 6. Finally take a white gel pen and draw a circle curve connecting the dots that are above and below each line. This will create a sewn pattern look.
