I don't think that's what the op is really looking for, Tahera.

To the op: Try googling 'making seamless patterns' or something similar.

If you want to make vector images and designs to make your own patterns Adobe Illustrator is your best bet. Small vector images from Illustrator can be put together to make a pattern.

If you want to draw intricate patterns by hand it's best to get yourself a graphics tablet.

To make a pattern seamless is pretty easy. How I do it is to make my design or use an image or vector that might not be seamless. I use photoshop, I make the image 700 by 700. I then go to filter > other > offset. I choose my offset to be exactly half of the image sixze so 350 x 350. You then get 4 images in one. You have to clone the joins in the pattern till they're not visible anymore. Just don't touch the edges as you will ruin the seamless edges.

I hope this helps, if not you can pm me if you think I can give you any more info or that I'm on track for what you're looking for.
