This is a set of four curved frieze patterns. All of them come from public domain books and have been converted to this useful set by using 2D CAD software.

As you can see in the picture, the curved frieze patterns consist of intertwined curved lines that are decorated in various points with thickenings, interruptions, etc. Each repeating frieze pattern can be cut to a base segment, which can then be copied to create a frieze pattern of any length. According to this, we can conclude that, when drawing such patterns, it is enough to draw a curve of desired shape on a segment, decorate and paint it, and make a frieze pattern of desired length by copying it. The whole process of drawing such patterns is very easy to do in vector or 2D CAD software. As you can see in the picture, these are very beautiful patterns that can range from simple to quite complex ones (see the fourth pattern).

Due to their simplicity and curved forms, these repeating frieze patterns are applicable to a variety of craft techniques. We hope that you got inspired to draw your own curved frieze pattern, but if you do not have the time or feel comfortable to, simply download one of the options given here, feel free to do so! Also, frieze patterns of this type can be easily turned into frame borders of various shapes, all you need to do is design and draw a corner based on the frieze pattern.
