Do you want to create your own seamless Patterns in Procreate?

I have to admit: Creating patterns, even better: seamless patterns, is great fun! It’s satisfying to grab your iPad and just start arranging clipart until it finally looks as you want. And then you go ahead and use these patterns for a myriad of things!
Sure you can just create patterns just for the fun of it. But you can also create them to sell them as a digital product. Or, if you love sewing and therefore fabric, you might want to apply the pattern to fabric and have e.g. Spoonflower print it for you. Then yes, you can sew with your very own fabric and offer it to others to have it printed as well. Also, you can apply your pattern to basically the 100s of products PDD sites have to offer and have them printed a beautiful mug or pillow for you. Sure, you can sell your designs there but you can also use it for your home or give what you’ve created as a gift for your loved ones.
