Two Tessellated (sort of) Christmas Patterns

Lately I've been really obsessed with math based patterns, for example the peacock pattern I posted a while back. Recently I was talking to a friend and was inspired to graph these for Christmas.

Feel free to change the colors on them, I think the dolls and bears one would look fantastic using extra beads from other projects and making every doll with a different colored dress and hair! A pair of motifs stitched sideways in brick would make a nice set of matching earrings.

I learned a lot from tessellations.org about how to draw and graph out tessellated patterns. In order to start one of these designs I use this graph and work in layers over it in my graphics program.

I hope your holidays are wonderful!
