There is an enormous writing spider living out back of the house right now and I decided that I had to do a pattern.
I will be the first to admit: spiders give me the heebie-jeebies. It was a bit of challenge to myself to get a good close up pic to use as a guide for the pattern.
The picture really wouldn't assimilate well, so I traced over the image by hand instead. Often, I find this is the best way to get a good pattern, with clean lines and bold colours.
