Creating repeat patterns in Procreate is hard.
Hard, and definitely not fun. There's remembering where things are repeating, which pattern type needs to repeat where - and ok, Procreate. Thanks for the magnetic snapping that snaps to EVERYTHING.
But surely the testing is easy and fun?Riiiight.
There's the scaling it down (perfectly), lining it up (perfectly), waiting for it to snap in *just* the right places and hoping. Really hoping it all works out. And let's not get into when a *little* white hairline seemingly appears OUT OF NOWHERE and you have to start all over. 🤦♀️
Making patterns is supposed to be fun.
There had to be a better, quicker and easier way. But not just for the making or the testing.
For the all-of-it.
so we made one.(the all-of-it kind)
Following this process, you'll be outputting new designs in half the time with the confidence your repeat patterns are perfectly seamless.
We're making pattern creation in Procreate share-with-the-world fun, and we're doing it without a single software subscription.
Catch ya later, Adobe 👋

Introducing: the Pattern Playground
Test faster, find where you need to edit quicker + experiment with scale and color. Annnd you can save out your repeats, too! ✨
Life changing? It might be.
Let's make awesome things while learning awesome things
Create 5 pattern projects using 4 different pattern making methods
Everything you need to create each project is included, along with full step-by-step video instruction.
We kick things off with a seashell symmetry full drop pattern. We'll set up our template together using the symmetry block brushes, paint in the elements, then make all edges seamless through pre-programmed selections. Once we have all of our gaps filled in, we'll drag it into the Pattern Playground for a final test.
To reinforce what we covered in Project 1, we'll use another symmetry block brush - this time the flower shape, and create another full drop pattern. I share how I fix troublesome areas when elements moving in different directions collide and I explain my full thought process along with my reasons behind every decision I make. We reconfigure our pattern to make it seamless using our pre-programmed selections and do a final test using the Pattern Playground.
In Project 3, we create a full drop repeat using an included composition template. Following the composition template, we're able to speed up our workflow and quickly adjust and adapt it to fit our needs. Once our elements are in place, we use our pre-programmed selections within the template to fill in the gaps, then test + adjust as needed using the Pattern Playground.
It's time to head into half drop patterns in Project 4! We'll work with a different composition template this time, pre-programmed with selections and set up specifically for half drops. After painting our elements in, we'll reorganize the template to fill in gaps using our selections, then test + adjust using the Pattern Playground.
To round out our pattern types, Project 5 is all about the half brick. We'll pick a half brick specific composition template, lay in our artwork and go off script from the template as needed. We then reorganize our artwork using the pre-programmed selections to fill in gaps and test our completed half brick within the Pattern Playground.
Dandelion Half Brick + Creating Different Colorways
We're adding on a 6th project! Mostly because I couldn't resist since it was so easy and fun.
Get ready to draw some simplified dandelion seed heads within a half brick composition template, then bring it into the Pattern Playground to finalize.
Next, we'll create 3 different colorways of the same pattern using only 2 gestures, allowing us to recolor artwork on the fly with just a couple of taps. Enjoy limitless variations of your patterns following this easy workflow, extending their lives and giving them new personality through color.
Creating Simple Pattern Mockups in Procreate
Did you know you can open most Photoshop files within Procreate? In this bonus module, I'll show you how to first download then open that Photoshop file in Procreate. Next, we'll start dissecting how it works so we can use it with our patterns. This module includes 2 different Photoshop mockup file tutorials which you can use to preview your patterns on real products.
And if Photoshop files aren't your jam, no problem! I also share how to convert any stock photo into a Procreate mockup file from scratch (some advanced Procreate tips in that one ;)
Exporting your Patterns + Getting them Printed
Let's get our patterns printed! In this module, I'll share my export settings: file type, size, resolution and color profile for getting our patterns printed on fabric and wallpaper through Spoonflower. I walk you through the entire upload process, the differences between ordering fabric vs. wallpaper + using their website's tools to order samples and larger quantities.
This module includes a buyer's guide video, sharing my experiences and recommendations for fabric and wallpaper with photos and color comparisons of the uploaded file vs. the samples I received.
We finish the module off with a timelapse + voice over narration of my experience applying their peel + stick wallpaper to a wall in my own home!
Convert your Procreate Patterns into Rasterized Illustrator Swatches + Photoshop .PAT Files
There may come a time that you'd like to use your Procreate patterns as an automated repeat in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop and I want to make sure you to know how to do that..so, cue another bonus! 🤓
We'll start by exporting our Procreate pattern square and importing it into Adobe Illustrator. From there, we'll create a perfectly repeating rasterized Illustrator pattern swatch - please note that we will not be vectorizing our art; we'll simply be making it available to use as a repeatable pattern within Illustrator's environment.
I'll show you how to export that Illustrator swatch and then import it back into Illustrator, so you can sell it or use it within other Illustrator files in the future.
Next, we'll hop into Photoshop! I'll share how to convert each pattern type (full drop, half drop + half brick) into a Photoshop .PAT file, then how to export and import that file, so it's also ready to sell or use for other projects.
100% Self Paced
Enrollment includes pre-recorded videos with lifetime access to all of them
Take the course at your own pace whenever it works with your schedule. There’s no pressure to hit a deadline or to fit everything in within a set amount of time.
And with lifetime access, you can refer back to it + watch it as many times as you’d like, too.

Hey! I'm Teela
and since 2014, my mission has been to make it easy for anyone to create beautiful digital art, no matter their skill level.
To date, I've helped over 250k creatives build upon their digital skills and my tutorials on YouTube have accumulated over 22 million views.
Pattern making has always been an enormous passion of mine, but the frustrations of creating them within Procreate were constant. Not having a pattern preview tool or a reliable Procreate process always discouraged me from creating more. My love of patterns won out, though, and I knew this was a problem worth solving.
This is why we developed our own unique pattern previewer: The Pattern Playground. And this is why we developed a reliable, non-destructive process, delivering perfectly seamless patterns (no matter the pattern type!) every single time.
The output ability... has been mind blowing. I knew this was going to speed up the process, but whoa. If I wasn't sitting in the front row, I would think it was unbelievable.
You can make any seamlessly repeating pattern you want in a matter of minutes. Really.
And I'll show you exactly how.
Requirements for this course
Procreate App (v5.3.1 or newer)
This course was filmed using v.5.3.1 of the Procreate app, so you’ll need to be on that version or newer to follow along.
We utilize pressure variation within many of the brushes and designs, so you’ll need to have an iPad that supports pressure sensitivity. A list of iPads that offer this are available here.
An iPad Stylus (pressure sensitive)
Since we’re utilizing pressure sensitivity settings, you’ll need a stylus that is compatible with your iPad. An Apple Pencil is recommended.
Familiarity with the Procreate interface
A basic familiarity with Procreate is all you’ll need to get started! If you’re brand new to Procreate, I recommend taking my free Procreate for Beginners course first so you’ll be able to follow along more comfortably.
You may be wondering...
What if I've never created a pattern in Procreate before?
Then you will never experience the pain of tiling those pattern squares manually 🎉 In all seriousness, though, you've come to the right place! You'll be starting with a process that's faster and more efficient than how it's been previously done. High five.
I'm brand new to Procreate, will I be able to follow along?
The course was created with beginners in mind, though if you're brand spankin' new to Procreate, check out my free course, Procreate for Beginners, first and you'll cruise through more comfortably.
What do I need to take this course?
You'll need an iPad that supports pressure sensitivity along with a compatible stylus (check out this list) and the Procreate app (v.5.3.1 or newer) installed. That's it!
I don't think I have time for this?
All Every Tuesday courses come with lifetime access, so you can take it at the time and pace that works best for you. It's yours for the long haul.
Do you offer any refunds?
This course is backed by our 30 day guarantee. If you want to stick with the old ways of creating patterns in Procreate, send us an email before the 30 days is up for a full refund.
Do I have to have Illustrator or Photoshop to take this course?
Nope! There's a bonus section for converting your patterns into Illustrator swatches and Photoshop pattern files, but it's completely optional. This course is allll about creating beautiful, repeat floral patterns in Procreate.
Does this class come with subtitles/closed captions?
Yep! English subtitles are included for every video
How long do I get access?
You buy something, you get to keep it around here. For good. For 'eva.
Can I sell the class projects I recreate on my own?
The projects in the class are my own original concepts + designs, so you can't recreate and sell them. You *can* use all the methods, templates, processes, colors and brushes to create your own original work and sell that, though - which, I'm guessing is why you'd want to take the class anyway 😉
I have more questions, how can I get in touch?
Head to my contact page and drop me your Q's - I'm just an email away.
Making patterns is fun again, especially in Procreate
Create those beautiful stop-and-stare patterns you have waiting inside of you onto the screen and into the world. Gain the peace of mind knowing they're made non destructively, were fully (and properly!) tested, and made at the correct size, resolution and color profile.
