Patterns making - drawing to digital patterns

I did two patterns using this method. I love the hand drawn effect but find it time-consuming. Despite my best efforts to align the artworks, I still have to spend a lots of time to clean up the mismatch. 

I wonder if I can just draw the items in the center, scan the drawing into Photoshop, then use the Filter, Other, Offset... function to arrange the pattern to the four corners. Then print out the pattern and continue fill in the middle area? Would this save some time and frustration? I haven't got around to try that, will definitely try to find time to see if it works.

Here are the two patterns I made:
