Make Polka Dot Patterns in Illustrator CS6
Here is a 5 minute tutorial demonstrating how to make polka dot pattern swatches in Adobe Illustrator CS6. I remember the days when we had to create our own polka dot swatches in Illustrator by chopping up circles and aligning them into a seamless pattern – ugh! Since then, the Pattern Maker tool in Illustrator has made this loads easier. It comes with tons of options, I am just outlining here the quickest, simplest way to make a great polka-dot pattern for your graphics that you can save in your Swatches palate and use again and again.
