Ever wanted to create a beautiful tessellation pattern that's not just repeating a simpe regular shape? Well here's one fullproof way to do that.

  • Tessellation Method Start with a square or rectangle
  • Add a curvy line to one side
  • Copy this line (using tracing paper) to the opposite side
  • Repeat for the other 2 sides
  • Use your imagination to decide what your shape looks like (a bird, a teddy bear, a rose?)
  • Tessellate your pattern and decorate it.
