Adobe Illustrator CS6 Make a texture fit exacly in a custom shape?


I am trying to make this texture inside the penguin shape like this

But i want to make it so the texture doesn't fall out of the shape, so the object follows the small patterns it now does this enter image description here

is there anny way i can make this possible ? Really hope someone can explain this to me.

The shapes are all vectors like enter image description here

Sorry, no. Illustrator can not auto-fit one shape inside another.

If you only want whole petal shapes, you'll have to manually delete any half-shapes.
