Each version of Photoshop is slightly different to the others. Here is one set of instructions that will hopefully give you enough information for you to work out how to do it in your version.

In Photoshop Creative Suite 6, you can apply preset patterns as fills. To fill a layer or selection with a preset pattern, follow these steps:

Choose the layer from the Layers panel and/or make the selection you want to fill with a pattern.

Choose Edit→Fill and then select Pattern from the Use drop-down menu (pop-up menu on the Mac).

In the Custom Pattern panel, select the pattern you want to fill with.

Here are some tips in choosing a pattern:

Choose a pattern from the drop-down panel.

Replace the current patterns with new patterns by selecting Replace Patterns from the panel pop-up menu (click the arrow on the right side of the dialog box). Then, select the new pattern library from the dialog box that appears.

Append new patterns to the current set by selecting Load Patterns from the panel menu.

Append one of the preset libraries that come with Photoshop by selecting the pattern from the list at the bottom of the panel menu.

Choose any other Fill options you want to apply, such as Mode, Opacity, or Preserve Transparency.

The Preserve Transparency option prevents Photoshop from filling the transparent areas on your layer with a pattern.

It’s recommended to adjust the Mode and Opacity settings in the Layers panel rather than the Fill dialog box. This approach allows you maximum flexibility if you want to make edits later.

Click OK to fill the layer or selection with the chosen pattern.

Tip: The new Scripted Pattern feature enables you to create a wider variety of patterns. You can offset, scale, and rotate your patterns. In addition, you can include transparency within your pattern. Adobe provides a few pattern script presets. Like brushes, you can also either create your own or find downloadable scripts online.

Thanks for the reply but I meant a design/pattern I've created myself.

I don't know if this is the right answer but if it were me I would creat the pattern in a separate file, then bring it in to the interior file as a shape that's bigger than the space you want to fill. I would then use the perspective/warp tools to make sure the angles and perspectives line up.. (unless the surface is perfectly aligned) I would then create a selection of the area using what ever selection tool is easiest for the surface.. and then select everything outside of the selection and delete it from the pattern, so they the pattern fits perfectly.

It may not be the text book way. Because I've never learned Photoshop from a textbook, but it would give you an separate layer that you can blend or mabupulate as you wish, that matches the shape and importantly perspective of the surface its on

Use Load Patterns in the panel menu to add your design pattern into the available pattern options, then apply it in the same way as you would apply a pre-installed pattern.
