Patterned Fabric

Been experimenting with pictures to make patterned fabric with the intention of possibly quilting them into small bags.  I created a pattern out of the fur and used it as a background then smoothed the animal into the pattern.

To create a new pattern in Photoshop Elements:
  1. Open the picture you want to take the pattern from.
  2. Select the Rectangular Marquee Tool (press M)
  3. Select area that you want to make into a pattern by click and dragging around it. Move the selection as required.
  4. Go to the main menu and select Edit>Define Pattern....
  5. Name the pattern and save.
Here are the original pictures that my husband took at a game reserve in South Africa:
