Here’s everything that’s included in this comprehensive toolkit:
**Seamless Fabric Repeat Patterns **
11 different textures are supplied, most advance in 10 color variations. These bitmap patterns were sourced from the genuine fabrics and retain the incredible detail and life-like qualities of the source material. The textures include wool, leather, felt, hessian, herringbone, plaid and more (see screen-shots for the full list). **I’ve also included the pattern master tiles** in Tiff format so you can accomplish your own color variations (You will need Photoshop to exercise the pattern tiles).
A quick reference jpg has been included to attend you find the proper patterns quickly.
These one click effects combine the seamless patterns with other effects. exercise them to transform vector shapes into authentic fabrics. The styles not only add the realistic texture but also give your shapes an authentic undulating edge – just like real fabric. So you can steal advantage of Illustrators improbable ability to accomplish a wide variety of shapes and add instant authenticity without having to manually adjust the edges each time.

I’ve included an extra style (not shown in the screen-shots) which combines the stitching and fabric so you can create lettering just like on the titling of the first screen-shot. Simply apply it to text and then swap in the patterns and adjust the colors of the stitching as required.
**Realistic Stitch Brushes**
In 12 varieties. these were sourced from real stitching for an authentic examine. I’ve supplied two versions of each stitch, one that has been optimized to work with dismal colors and one with light colors. It’s just like drawing with a needle and thread!
**Sparkling Sequin Brushes**
Add some glitz and glam to your collages! Like all the other material in the pack, these were sourced from the real thing. Recolor them to suit your design.
**Posable Ribbon Brushes**
Made from real ribbons, they are ideal for creating banners, text or for adding details to your collages (you can see them working to much effect as the snowman’s scarf). I’ve supplied two versions of each ribbon, one that has been optimized to work with dismal colors and one with light colors. I’ve also included three pre-made bows for exercise with the brushes.
Again, these were sourced from real buttons and fill been converted into vectors. The advantage of brushes over vectors is that you can re-color them instantly and easily by just adjusting the stroke color.
All of the preview image scenes are included. Examine or re-purpose them. All elements are layered so you can exercise them to accomplish your own creations. Please note that because of the Creative Market file size limit I’ve included a link to a separate download for these files.
A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then edit the effects is supplied. Please read carefully all the way through as it provides all the information you might need on how to load and exercise these effects and brushes.
