Played today with a chickadee image in Illustrator.
And then into Pattern Maker 4.0 we did go!
This is the first of my illustrations that I've taken into Pattern Maker and I am quite pleased with the way it translated. This is exactly how it came into the program without any tweaking. I used a stock photo of a chickadee as a template in Illustrator and drew my stylized birdy, colored it and imported it to PM4.0, I would take out the white background stitches though.
