Welcome to my Pattern Toolbox short classes, specifically designed for Illustrator pattern makers. In this short, bite-size class we will focus on tips and tricks to make a half-drop repeat pattern!

I will take you through some examples of basic and half-drop repeats and the differences between them. This class shares my method of creating a half-drop repeat (brick by row or brick by column), using both the automated Pattern Tool, as well as the old-fashioned manual way. I will share tips and tricks to design an intricate, consistent repeat tile! 

For a detailed, step-by-step process on how to create a seamless repeat pattern, take my class "Repeat Patterns Made Easy, in Illustrator".

Key lessons include:

  • Basic vs. Half-Drop repeat
  • How to create an intricate repeat tile
  • Using the Pattern Tool to create a brick by row pattern
  • Using the Clipping Mask to create a brick by column pattern
