"Strawberry Shortcake is a licensed character owned by American Greetings, originally used in greeting cards and expanded to include dolls, posters, and other products...The Strawberry Shortcake line of characters each had their own fruit or dessert-themed name with clothing to match, and they each had a dessert- or fruit-named pet. Like the Strawberry Shortcake doll, all the other characters' dolls had hair scented to match their dessert theme. The characters lived and played in a magical world known as Strawberryland" -wikipedia-

Some of Strawberry's well-known friends are: Raspberry Tart, Lemon Meringue Pie, Orange Blossom, and Blueberry Pie. Strawberry is usually accompanied by her pink (and white polka-dotted) cat, Custard. I Loved Strawberry Shortcake as a kid (I still have a doll stored away somewhere), so I decided to make my version of her.

Old-school and new-school Strawberry Shortcake were the inspo...

Strawberry's clothing is all base game clothing colored in CAST. She is packaged with base game hair as well.

Sliders were used to make her head wider and to shape her eyes. My slider range: x4. I most definitely used these sliders (except the "lower jaw height") by bella3lek4, to sculpt Strawberry's face. My Mods folder also contains sliders by: Delphy , CmarNYC , aWT (nose septum, jawline/brow), Jonha , whiterider, a slider by GnatGoSplat, and a UI mod by Rez Delnava.

CC in pics:
Hair is a retexture called "Missbonbon_Savio_Clippedpigs" by Missbonbon. Scroll down 'til you see the hair, it's the 7th one.
Strawberry hat is by "Sellifera". The creator's tumblr no longer exists (unless they changed names), and the file was recently deleted/moved. Should I come across any working files, I will provide the link. -19/03/14-

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 sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

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.

I LOVE this sim! However both sites that I can find the hat on, including the linked one, say the download no longer exists I would love to make this sim a gardener for the strawberry plant I downloaded! Are there any other links to the hat? Thanks!

Thank you. It appears that the creator's files are now gone. I'm trying to see how to proceed as the content is not mine...

Are you still looking for a link? I can't find any other strawberry hat and I really need one.

Haven't been looking lately, and still have not found any "leads". The creator is not on any "graveyard" sites and he/she might have changed their name (or created a new tumblr), but I'm not sure.
