Did you know you can add your own pattern fills in Silhouette Studio?

If you have Silhouette Studio Designer Edition you're able to import custom digital patterns directly into Silhouette Studio.  Custom patterns can be anything from a photo to a digital background or seamless pattern.


These can be used to fill shapes for print and cut, mock ups, or even custom printed patterned paper and vinyl.

It's really easy to add custom pattern fills in Silhouette Studio V4.

Start by opening your Silhouette Studio library.

From the Local User area, open the Patterns folder.

Now open a finder window on your computer and select the digital pattern or patterns you want to import. You can add multiple custom patterns at the same time by selecting all of them.

Simply drag and drop them into the Patterns folder in the Local User Library...or a sub folder under the Patterns folder (if you have created them)

The new patterns should now show up in the preview window on the right side of the library.

The custom patterns will also appear in the Fill panel > Patterns tab below the default patterns.

I use custom patterns all different ways including for design backgrounds, glitter mock up designs, filling designs with photos, and getting an idea of how designs will look when cut on patterned vinyl or HTV.
