I wasn't all satisfied with my leaf patterns so I decided to make some more, traditional ones. They are meant as wallpapers, but work well on furniture.
They are categorized under "Themed".

07. Grape: 3 recolorable channels, the middle one just adds texture (make it the same color as the background if you don't want texture)
08. Berry: 4 recolorable channels.
09. Ivy: 3 recolorable channels, middle one adds texture
10. Vine: 2 recolorable channels.
11. Deco: 3 recolorable channels.
12. Violet: 3 recolorable channels.

These are the default colors for each:

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.

:o One of my severely nature-obsessed Sims is about to move into a new house. These will be epic to use in the decoration of it. :D

Very nice little dainty patterns. So pretty and so very useful.

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

Beautiful! I usually don't download too many patterns, seems as though so many aren't worth it. That being said I really like your patterns. They are unique and well, contrary to what I just said .... Worth downloading! Hehe Thanx!
