Warp a Pattern in Illustrator – Use Transform & Envelope Warp Like a Pro



Learn how to warp a pattern in Illustrator. Once you’ve filled a shape with a pattern, learn how to bend and shape it. You might want this to create an interesting effect or to warp a pattern to suggest fabric, curtains or some other object which has bends in it.

In this video you will see how to take a pattern and how to stretch and squeeze it and pull and push it using Illustrator tools. The tools used will be the Transform and Envelope Warp tools and you will soon be using them like a pro!

You will progress from making a simple pattern using a set of shapes (although you can use any pattern for this effect) and then use the Transform tool to create repeated shapes. You will see how to expand the shapes and then group them and warp them as a whole. You’ll see how to set up the mesh for Envelope Distort and how to adjust the mesh to make a rigid pattern look more organic in style.

Once the effect is complete, you will see how to clip the excess pattern outside the artboard. The result is an interesting organic flowing pattern.
