Repeat patterns


Ive had one of those technically challenging days today! I wanted to make a perfect repeat tile, something which you'd think a textile designer would be adept at doing.....not really! I never usually put my designs in repeat. However for istock I'm hoping to do some repeat patterns as they seem to be popular. Here is my attempt. I have slaved over this. Thanks to a tutorial on design sponge, which helped, but doesn't explain how to do it in illustrator. I expect someone clever reading may be able to direct me to a tutorial??!!
