Tip: Be sure to name each layer so you always know exactly what part of the drawing you are working on and pay attention to how your selection tool is set up.

Tip: Try to keep the scale in mind as you work. Keep the actual size of the project and the pattern scale of your fabrics in proper relationship.
Tip: Use the color picker to snag colors directly from the “fabrics” you are working with and create a palette to ensure your choice will be complementary.
