You now need to create an image without layers that contains each your pattern pieces. First save your file. Go to File>Save. In Photoshop crop the image to leave out all the extra space on your canvas. Click on “C” and you will see the crop symbol on your mouse pointer. Click on two corners to select the cropping area and hit enter. Go to Layer>Merge Visible to flatten your layers into one. Then go to File>Save as to save a copy of your cropped and flattened image to a different file (ex: Pattern Name _01_flat.psd). You might want to go back and edit the file with all the separate images later which is why it is good to save as another file.
