In the Spirit of generosity I have uploaded my swatch library.

Please note that some of these are copies from other designers swatches from locations from on the internet, just as inspiration for creating swatches of material.

you should try makin your own:) it's very easy.

new file > Make a black shape (your stitch shape) > goto "Edit" > select "Define Brush Preset "> name it > hit Ok

open brushes palette > select your defined Brush Preset (should be last one) >turn all options off > click on option "Shape Dynamics" (which will turn it on too) > for Angle Jitter Control drop down, select "Direction" (make sure everything else is off) > click on Brush Tip Shape > increase spacing to desire.

Voila. Custom Stitch Brush.

You can also get creative with your brush by giving your stitch texture before you define it as brush, or making two shapes for double stitching, x shapes, etc.

hope that helps.

I draw in open source program MyPaint, which has some excellent brushes. You can easily create many different kinds of textures with them (for example, all my shoes have been drawn in MyPaint, see for example my Owl Shoe http://www.coroflot.com/public/individu ... id=3664921&).

Softgoods newbie here. Have things changed at all in the past 7 years, or is it still custom brushes and distort tool? ;)

Illustrator CC has gotten a whole lot better - it's slowly transitioning handy features from Photoshop !
You can also experiment with the mapping tool on AI, pretty handy!
