You were so excited about all of the design ideas that you had, you were loving life as a crochet or knit pattern designer, and now you're stuck. You're in a creative slump and feeling completely unmotivated. And chances are you're only making it worse for yourself because you're dwelling on it, getting frustrated, and trying to force the creativity. I'm sorry, friend, but that's just not going to work. So let's talk about what will work! In this podcast episode, I talk all about five sources of endless pattern design inspiration. It's already around you and within you - you just have to be open and attentive to it.
But maybe the problem isn't so much that you can't find the inspiration, but more that you don't take the time for it. Beth (the crochet pattern designer behind Fig & Filament) and I created something just for you! 52 Weeks of Creativity sends a unique design prompt to you once a week. Just spend thirty minutes each week responding to the creative prompt, and a year from now you will have over 50 new pattern design ideas! We're excited to see what new pattern designs you create. (And yes, I promise these prompts are totally different than a magazine call for submissions! Instead of trying to guide you to a specific style and theme, we're encouraging to follow your own interests and intuition. I know you'll love it.)
In this episode I also mentioned the Design Challenges, which are similar to the 52 Weeks of Creativity design prompts, hosted inside the Pattern Design Circle. The Design Circle is a community filled with enthusiastic knit and crochet pattern designers focused on growing their businesses and connecting with fellow designers.
