Purplepaws's Pattern Pack 3 - For the Girls

Hi, everyone! Long time no see. I haven't been completely absent from the community; I just haven't had as much time to create.

This time I bring you a third pack of patterns, done with little girls in mind. These were all based on real fabric swatches, which I made into seamless patterns and then retraced by hand. Each one took several hours in-the-making (the longest being the deer and mushrooms), and now I'm finally ready to spring them loose onto your sims.



They can all be found under "themed", except for the polkadots, which is under "geometric." A few of them come in multiple sizes, as noted below, and are completely recolorable (no "fixed" colors, apart from details).

Butterflies - 3 Sizes, 4 Recolorable Palettes
Cutesy - 2 Sizes, 4 Recolorable Palettes
Daisies - 2 Sizes, 3 Recolorable Palettes
Jolly Rogers - 1 Size, 2 Recolorable Palettes
Confetti Dots - 1 Size, 4 Recolorable Palettes

I hope you get some use out of these. I think they're quite fun to decorate with and make great accent fabric for clothing, such as sweatshirt hoodie lining.

Thanks for downloading, and have a great day!

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.

Wow. I've needed a proper girl's room wallpaper for a long time. The base game options are just terrible...

I've only used the skull and crossbone pattern so far on some clothes, but these are very nice!
