In this I ♥ Tie Dye Pattern Pack, you will find 8 fully recolorable tie dye patterns. These go really well and clothing, the Tie Dye Mania one gives a faintly iridescent feel.










Recolorable Channels: 4
Category: Miscellaneous
Credits: Tutti Frutti based on this all others were either images I've created or had so long that I no longer have the links.
Redistribution: Feel free to steal my work. Remember kids, don't put anything on the internet that you don't want thousands of people to claim as their own.
Anything else? If you use my pattern in an awesome way, take a screenshot and post it in a comment!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

One of the most useful pattern sets I've downloaded. This set works for everything from a '70's theme to a tropic flavor. Thanks for making it...I love it.

Gillianivy: We are all aware of that guy. Thing is, none of the patterns he stolen actually work for anyone. They don't contain the files necessary to work properly so it's all very moot. Personally, I encourage people to steal my work (see my creator policy ). I also find it quite flattering that someone thought my work was good enough to pass off as their own.

Interesting logic. They don't work? I'd heard something of that sort of patterns that were custom not working. They have to post them on objects or something to work? Never tested it out. I wonder if my patterns I'd uploaded work.... Hmmmm.

As I understand it (second hand knowledge, I don't have an exchange account), they are basically uploading it from the game itself (launcher?) so only, like, the color is getting uploaded, or something like that. The main thing is that the xml and all the meat of the pattern is not getting uploaded, so they can't change the color. Serves 'em right.

I posted a similar comment to this on your electric pack, but again...better than just for tie-dye. These patterns can be ANYTHING when fuddling with the right colors.

As a passionate lover of all things 60s and tie-dye, including, much to my housemates' chagrin, a tie-dyed bedspread, I must say, the thanks button just isn't enough. So:



THANK YOU! ^_^

These are my favorite patterns to use in game. Besides just being tie dye, they also give dimension and depth to all kinds of things when used with subtle coloring. I can't thank you enough!
