This question came from our site for professional graphic designers and non-designers trying to do their own graphic design.
You can use the clone tool :
Then, you can fill arbitrary shapes with the result, by selecting all the clones, then Menu Object -> Patters -> Object to Pattern (Alt-i)
Then in any shape you have, you can fill it with this newly created pattern.
