Now open one to two desired fabrics you found in Photoshop, copy and paste them into your Wireframe image, and size these fabrics down to scale. There will either be a ruler next to the fabric, a dime or the fabric description will say how big the biggest circle is for example. Then just estimate. If you need your fabric to cover a big surface, DON't just resize, you want to copy and paste as many as you need and puzzle them together. To avoid sizing your duplicates down individually, copy and paste the first one you size down. Lay these fabrics underneath the wire layer you created earlier into the desired areas. (Tip: Transform Tool- For Macs= Apple "T" and For PCs= Alt Cntr "T"; hold shift when resizing to lock stretch. This will also give you the freedom of turning them any way you like.)
