Hand lettering and Faux Calligraphy by Sarah Milner

Hi Everyone.  Today’s post is by a friend of mine and very talented surface pattern designer, Sarah Milner.  She is giving us an introduction to hand lettering and faux calligraphy.

Hello! My name is Sarah. I am an Australian surface pattern designer living in Far North QLD. I create patterns and designs that can go on all sorts of surfaces such as: gift wrap, stationary, fabric etc… Pretty much anything you see that contains a pattern, whether its’s your crockery set, wall paper or t-shirt, has a designer behind it. Creating patterns is something I am passionate about! I’m inspired by the beauty of nature around me, childhood memories, my kids, art, architecture … there is inspiration everywhere! You’re welcome to check out my patterns at,  my website at or facebook.
