Do you want to create simple, easy to create, in demand products?

Do you want to add a new product line to your store?
Do you want to create unique designs and do it using free software?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, I have the answer for you.

Hi, my name is Marian Blake. Over the last few years, I have made it my quest to find digital product niches that are simple to make and that are saleable on sites such as Etsy and your own website. I especially like to create digital products that I can create, publish, and leave to sell so I can spend my time creating more products.

To do this, I spend hours learning different software and diving into digital product niches to find products that sell that I can make quickly and easily.

So what have I found?

I have found there are a group of products that sell on Etsy, on POD sites, and on your own website. With a little training, you can quickly make these designs. Oh, and as they are digital, there is no product to store and shift. These products are patterns, and I have found three types that are easy to create.


To do this, I am using a software that is free to use. There is a learning curve, but it is worth the effort to learn it. Don't worry, I have gone through the learning phase, so all you have to do is follow along.

Why am I using this software?

  • It has many features that make creating a breeze.. 
  • It allows you to take small images (yes, even JPEGs and PNGs) and make them huge without losing definition and getting pixilation or vice versa. 
  • It allows you to save in many formats so you can create multiple products with the same design.
  • You can import an image and then manipulate it.
  • You can start with a blank canvas and create your own design. 
  • It is versatile.
  • And remember, IT IS FREE TO USE. No purchase fees. No monthly fees. No update fees. Zip, Nada, Rien, None.

Below are two examples of designs you will learn - one is a repeatable pattern, and the second is a group of spirographs. 

I am so happy to announce my next course in my Marian's Minis series.


 How to create THREE pattern types in Inkscape

Before I go any further, I think I should introduce you to Marian's Minis courses.

Each Marian's Minis course is a short course that covers one product type or design idea. They are not difficult to create, so you can either sell them as your main product line, or sell them as a sideline. They are also great for people who have limited time to create products.

What will you get with the course?

Included in the Patternation course is

  • Research into the niche.
  • How to create patterns along a path - good for unique borders.
  • How to create spirographs, and how to add multiple versions together.
  • How to use public domain images to create a repeatable design.
  • How to check your repeatable design works.
  • and much more.....

You can make Patterns simple or complicated. 

You can create them so your customers can print them out or use them digitally.

You can use them on your own products or on POD products

You can create them using free public domain images and then they are yours to use, sell or give away.

If you can follow instructions and can click a mouse, you can do this.

You can do all the designing on free software - Inkscape. 

A Quick Word About Inkscape

I know many of you haven't heard of Inkscape and wonder what type of image software it is. Inkscape is a vector graphics program on the same lines as Adobe Illustrator and Affinity Designer. It is not a copy of either, but works similarly to get the same results.

Okay, it isn't perfect. BUT it is very, very good. Inkscape is a free to use, open-source vector graphics editor. The website admits it is not as good as Adobe Illustrator for some things, but they say it can be "used to create, edit, render vector graphics, including complex drawings and illustrations". I have found that it works very well for me as a digital product designer, especially for Press Ons which often need a transparent background.


How to create THREE pattern types in Inkscape you can sell on Etsy and your website.
