The good news is that you can make your pattern using any image or design you want. After that, all you have to do is to follow these steps:

  1. Open Adobe Photoshop and insert an image you like to use as a pattern.
  2. Now, if you want to choose some part of the image, please use the ‘Rectangle Marquee’ tool before we proceed to the next step. Otherwise, if you want to use the entire image, just choose ‘Select’ > ‘Select All’ and the entire image will be set as the pattern.
  3. Next, you can go to the menu bar and look at the ‘Edit’ section > ‘Define Pattern’. The ‘Define Pattern’ dialog box will pop up on your screen and you can just name it, then press OK.
  4. Leave the image aside and create a new one.
  5. Select the new layer or you can use the ‘Rectangular Marquee’ tool again to select several parts that you want to fill with the pattern.
  6. Let’s go to ‘Edit’ > ‘Fill’ and you will find the ‘Fill’ dialog box. Please select the ‘Custom Pattern’ menu.
  7. In the ‘Custom Pattern’ menu, you will find some patterns from Photoshop along with your new pattern. Just click the pattern you want to fill in the new image.
  8. Still, inside of the ‘Custom Pattern’ menu, you can din the ‘Script’ checkbox and make sure it’s on deselected mode.
  9. The next step is to choose a blending mode for your pattern. This blending mode will allow you to refine the lines or pixels to make it looks smooth, like a real pattern.
  10. Now, all you have to do is press OK from the ‘Custom Pattern’ menu, and you are finished! You can use the pattern in your design.
