One of my favorite classes to teach is Illustrator: Making a Pattern. Here are a few patterns that I made today as I was testing out the new CS6 pattern making features! (Update to the class coming in July!)
These patterns are perfectly tiled, so feel free to download them and use them! They will work well for blog backgrounds, twitter backgrounds, or desktop wallpapers. Just right-click the file and save it to your computer. Upload it to the site where you want to use it, and choose to tile it! Leave a comment letting us know where you used the pattern. We’d love to check out your sites!
