I found this wonderful resource for generating wallpaper group patterns in Illustrator called MadPattern. It's a set of free templates for the 17 groups. It makes pattern generation so easy. I honestly spent more time working on the color scheme than coming up with the design.

I'm also joining a fun artists movement called #weeklypatternwednesday, organized by Smudged Textiles Studio. It's a great blog, go check it out! :)
