Read more Download the free template Download the pattern See the gallery From the toolbar on the left, choose the Eraser tool and click on the tiny arrow at the bottom corner of the icon which will give you more Eraser options.
Click on the Magic Eraser option. Click anywhere on the blank area of your scanned pattern piece and it will remove everything matching that color, making the background transparent and leaving only your black lines behind.
Sometimes the scanned images will be hard to see when you open them in Photoshop. You can increase the Contrast and decrease the Brightness on each pattern piece layer to make your hand drawn lines easier to see and line up.
The Levels tool under the same menu will produce similar effects. Once the pattern pieces are fully reassembled, you can get rid of all the layers by going to the Layer menu, then choosing Flatten Image. The next step will be to trace your reassembled pattern piece with the Pen Tool to get rid of all the hand drawn cutting lines and messiness. On your now reassembled pattern file, create a New Layer and then select the Paint Bucket tool from your toolbar on the left.
Click anywhere on your canvas with the paint bucket to fill in the layer — I used a white fill layer but you can use whatever color will give you a good contrast against the hand drawn pattern lines.
This new filled in layer should be on top of your pattern piece layer, hiding it from your view for the moment. With your New Layer selected, choose the Pen Tool from the toolbar on the left.
Click along the outline of your pattern. Each spot you click will connect to the spot before it, until you have come back to your starting point and enclose your pattern shape.
You can adjust your line to fit and curve as you go by clicking on any point on the line. This will make 3 dots appear. Next, right-click inside your enclosed dotted line and choose Make Selection from the pop up menu. The outline will start sort of blinking. Now, using the Paint Bucket tool again, fill in your pattern piece with a different color I chose a set of pastel colors just for fun.
This will fill in your selection.
Now you can hide your hand drawn layer by clicking the little eye icon next to it you see only your finished piece. When I stack them all on top of each other, each size is clearly shown in a different color making it easy for the final user to cut out the size they want and get to sewing! You can now add a text layer to your finished pattern piece providing all the important information using the Text Tool from the toolbar on the left. You can also use the pencil tool to draw an arrow showing the grainline.
The Pencil tool is also found on the toolbar. Choose the weight in pixels for your line, and you can make a perfectly straight line by holding down the Shift key as you draw your line across the screen. Now your finished pattern is neat, clean, and ready to share. Flatten each of those files down to a single layer if you had text, and multiple size layers like in my example by going to the Layer menu and choosing Flattern Image.
Next, use the Rectangular Marquee Tool from earlier to draw a box around your entire pattern piece. Copy your selection, then paste it onto your New File. With the marquee tool still selected, right click and choose the Free Transform tool that you used earlier when assembling the pattern pieces to move your finished piece into your desired print layout position. Whatever your plans for digitizing your hand drawn patterns, this finished product is sure to save you time down the road.
