Olivia's Repeat Patterns with Adobe Illustrator

Olivia's Repeat Patterns with Adobe Illustrator - student project

This was such a fun exercise! I have only created a one colored pattern thus far, but I am super excited to start creating collections. I have been making patters for a while, but the old fashioned way in photoshop with snap guides - this is SO MUCH EASIER and more fun to play around with! Is there a way to save the swatch for the pattern to open up separately from the artwork in illustrator? If I am just asked to send the pattern swatch - is there a correct way to save it? 

Thanks for an super nice and clear tutorial! I will recommend this course to my creative friends :)
