If only there was an easy way to create a pattern like this . . . Good news, there is! Follow the step-by-step tutorial below.

How to Create a New Year Seamless Pattern Using Adobe Photoshop 2021 Pattern Preview

Before you start this tutorial, make sure you already downloaded the clip arts on your computer. This tutorial uses Adobe Photoshop version 2021, which has the major update for designing a pattern.

Now, there’s a new feature called Pattern Preview, which will help you create a pattern much easier than before. You just need to follow these five easy steps . . .

Step 1: Prepare the Document

To create a standard pattern, you can create a 1000 x 1000 pixels canvas with 300 dpi resolution. Create any size that you need, but the size needs to be a 1:1 square.

Make sure the color mode is CMYK if you intend to use the pattern for prints, or RGB for digital use. (You can learn the distinctions between the two color modes in this article).

Step 2: Enable Pattern Preview

To use Pattern Preview, go to View and select Pattern Preview. This will take you to a preview that’ll make it easier for you to create patterns.

Step 3: Insert the Clip Arts as a Pattern

Now that you’re in Pattern Preview, you can start inserting the clip arts and adjusting the composition. You can easily drag-and-drop the clip arts to insert into your document.

Easy, right?

Step 4: Adjust the Composition

You can use just one clip art to create a simple pattern, but you can also use multiple clip arts to create a more dynamic pattern. If you want to use multiple clip arts, simply insert another one and adjust the composition again.

Tip: To make a seamless pattern, ignore the rectangular document area that we created earlier. It’s okay if your clip art hits the border. You can zoom out to see the result of the pattern. Focus on the result of the pattern. Just adjust until you achieve your desired look.

Try to make the clip art as seamless as possible.

Step 5: Save as Pattern

Finally, it’s time to save your creation in the form of a pattern. First, you need to activate the Pattern window by clicking Window -> Pattern. After that, look for the “” sign to add a pattern from the active document. Save your pattern and make sure to title it.

Hooray, your pattern is ready. Good job!
