Here’s a set of free repeat patterns. There’s six in total and they’re all diagonal stripes.
Each pattern is seamless and will tile perfectly on all sides. The download contains six Illustrator vector patterns (EPS files) that you can load into Adobe Illustrator or your favorite vector editing program. It also includes six 24 bit transparent PNGs that you can use “as is” or use for Photoshop patterns (Edit->Define Pattern).
This tutorial is going to show you how easy it is to fill custom shapes with repeating patterns in Adobe Photoshop. I’m using CS3 for this tutorial but it should work in any recent version.
You can have some real creative fun with Photoshop and repeat patterns. As with most things, there’s lots of different ways to use patterns in your own designs.

Here’s another free vector repeat pattern in a gothic style
I had a couple of requests for a different version of the first free pattern so here it is. It’s a bit bigger (cos big is beautiful) and the colors are just black and white.

Back to this pattern… It’s a seamless vector pattern that you can download for free. It’s fully editable so you can tweak it to fit with your designs. The download contains an EPS file that you can load into Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop (or whatever you use for editing vectors). I’ve also included a png in the download so you can just go ahead and use that if vectors are too scary :)
