Here's a really easy way to create tapestry.  For this tutorial, I am using a 640 x 480 digital photo that I took of my cat, Mr. Muff.  If you wish to follow along, please click on the thumbnail image and save the full size image to your hard drive.

He really is a cute fella, isn't he?

Open Muff's picture and then go to Effects/Creative/Creative Warp.

Select icon 14, then 4, then 6.  Your image should now look like this:

Open a new image 600 x 600 white.  Edit/Fill/Image/Clipboard/Tile.
