Have you always dreamed of putting your designs on fabric or wrapping paper?

Maybe a parent or teacher told you that you didn't have enough talent... Or they said you can't make any money at art so you gave up on your dream. Or you got in trouble at school because you doodled all the time!

Join me for this now kinda famous Doodles Coaching Week. I'm going to introduce you to an incredible industry called Surface Design and teach you step by step, starting from scratch, how to create your first, or next, beautiful repeating (seamless) pattern using the magic of Adobe Illustrator.

Are you ready?


Sketch. Color. Pattern Design.

Scroll down for all the juicy details!

Day 1: What is Surface Design?

When you look around you right now, how many things do you see with a pattern or design on them? Probably about 6, I'd guess. The carpet under your feet, some wrapping paper you have left from Christmas, your phone case. All of those were designed by a surface designer! 

Day 2: Sketch & Import

Let's get started learning Adobe Illustrator. Eeek! I can hear you saying that but here's the thing. I learned Illustrator in my late 50s and my teaching approach works! Even if you've never opened the program before, you can do this! We're going to keep it really simple to start.

Day 3: Image Trace & Color

Are you ready to add color to your doodles? I'll teach you three different ways to add color to your doodles or sketches. This part of the process is SO. MUCH. FUN.

Day 4: Create Your Pattern

This is when the magic happens. We'll pick up right where we left off and you'll follow my "3 Golden Rules" for creating a perfectly repeating pattern - no seams, no mistakes!


Prizes for completing your first pattern!

Participate and enter to win prizes! There will be a random drawing to select 3 winners who successfully complete the homework assignments & create their first repeating pattern!

• A few of your sketches or doodles. Keep it simple! The goal is to get you to the finish line with a repeating pattern that works. Bring 1-3 very simple doodles or sketches to the live training.

Hello there! I'm Anne LaFollette.

Were you creative as a child but the idea of pursuing your passion was "poo-poohed" by those around you?

Did you love to doodle pretty much all the time and occasionally that got you into trouble at school?

How about this? You really wanted to go to art school but your parents wouldn't let you because: "You can't make any money at that."

Well, my friend, the world has changed! It's entirely possible to share your art with the world and get it manufactured on products IN REAL LIFE!

My story isn't that unique. I spent 25 years in a corporate job until, out of the blue, my boss eliminated my job. In retrospect, it was the best thing that ever happened because I'd probably still be in that job if he hadn't handed me a pink slip.

Leaning into my creativity at the age of 58 was challenging. I didn't know where to start or what I wanted to do exactly... until I discovered Surface Design. I'd never heard of it but after making my first repeating pattern, I was hooked!

I've created this Doodles Coaching Week to introduce you to the wonderful world of surface design which, along with teaching, is my passion.

This Coaching Week is the perfect place to start. Join us. I know you'll love it.
