In class we learnt about repeats and how to create them in Photoshop. A repeat is a design or image that can be copied endlessly. Below are the pattern repeats that I made:
This was the first pattern I ever made by creating four stripes and using the rectangular marquee tool to select an area to define as a pattern.
This repeat is very easy and involves a motif being snapped to a grid. I had to use the offset tool to divide the motif into 4 sections.

Half drop repeat
This is a relatively simple version of the half drop repeat in which a single motif is used. I created this repeat by using the offset tool, altering the image and canvas sizes and defining the pattern.
