    Pattern fills with seamless patterns




      I'm doing some shapes that have a seamless pattern fill & then I want to use the shapes with the sealess pattern fill in another seamless pattern.  The only way i see I can do this is by expanding the artwork before dragging it into the swatch palatte.  The files are so big illustrator is crashing or the file is near impossible to work with.  I love the look of what i'm doing..but the files are too big.  Any ideas on a better way to do this?
