    What is the best way to do this artwork?

      Hi, I am fairly new to Illustrator. This design is going to be used for a repeat textile/fabric design.I am trying to trace JUST the inside of the middle square, since it is all I need at this point.  BUT, since everything extends outside of the box, I'm having a hard time tracing just to the edge. Does this make sense? Is there a way to use the inside box as a cookie- cutter of sorts? Or, would it unravel the design, since there would be so many open paths? Any thoughts? Ideas?

       

      Thanks! Roxanne
