How do I make good pro designs???

I keep seeing these amazing pro designs all over the Internet, but the closest I've come was a crappy looking Luigi shirt (made it to match my hat atm). How do I make nice looking clothes like that??? >_<

Start very simple (maybe a Jacket/ Hoodie?).
Primarily use two tones, one for the main piece and a darker of the same colour to create sleeves/ pockets/ etc. Too much colour will look sloppy, unless its a detail like buttons or a scarf.
Also, keep an eye on the display above and stay symmetrical.

All in all, be patient and after 2-3 hours of mind numbing tapping you'll make something decent.
This game I decided to become better at patterns so I've made one each day since I've started.
The practice has definitely helped.

If you're THAT terrible at it I'd suggest you get some grid paper, colored pencils, and practice. Or just get any of the countless free "pixel art" programs around the internet and mess around.

I'm not sure how you can be that bad at it since you can just place a grid and go by that. Shoot even with real drawing if you use a grid you can turn somebody who can barely draw into a fairly amazing artist.

I made a heart shirt with a denim heart jacket.

...

Close enough.

I always use a reference pic when I make a new design. Back in Wild World I made an awesome Majora's Mask design, which became my town flag. It takes hours of trial and error, but is well worth it in the end.

For simple designs like logos or whatnot, there are pattern converters online where you upload a picture. I used a City Folk one for New Leaf, works just fine. For the rest, just experiment and trial and error. I doubt that people churn them out like machines.
