    Adding pattern to a 3D object

    Kenford Level 1

      OK, I figured out how to create a donut-shaped object in 3D using Illustrator CS4. Now... I want to add a pattern to it.

      I'm having a lot of trouble with this. It's a zebra pattern. I created a circle. Then made a hole in it. Then I "added" the zebra pattern using the pathfinder. But this removed the circular edges of the "donut," so when I use the 3D effect on it... the shapes turns out weird. Any ideas? Thanks!
