How to Create a Seamless Pattern in Illustrator

I decided to update my tutorial about creating seamless pattern in Illustrator and add few other ways that may be more convenient for you.

First of all watch this video for inspiration and to get the idea how to create seamless pattern in hand-drawn way.



For those of you who have Illustrator CS6 or CC there is a good news, the process of creating seamless pattern became automatic, so now every beginner can solve this task easily. Just select your object and click on Object>Pattern>Make. When you do so, your objects will automatically transform into a pattern and the Pattern Options dialog box will appear. When you look at the Pattern Options dialog box you will see many options - try them and change until you get the result you want.

For those of you who have Illustrator of earlier versions - I'll tell now few ways and tools of creating pattern.

The first way

This way is perfect especially for easy patterns consisting of few objects.
Here is the final pattern we will receive.

Drawing with Blob Brush Tool(tutorial)

If you wonder what tools I use and how I usually draw in Illustrator - here is a little tutorial.

Firstly I normally draw sketch on the paper, using pencil or ink pan. Then I scan it(or make a photo if you haven't scanner). And then put into Illustrator, to draw.
If I want to create seamless pattern, to be more convenient I draw on the paper square, so I can imagine how to place objects and what of them will be out the artboard. 


Let's start!
