I am really struggling to find high quality seamless patterns.

The best I've been able to do is scour through Deviant Art looking for nice textures.

If anyone has any idea where to find nice patterns for recoloring, please post it here!
I will update the main post with hyperlinked download locations in case anyone else is interested.



Downloads:
Deviant Art (http://www.deviantart.com/browse/all/?qh=&section=&global=1&q=seamless)
Colour Lovers (http://www.colourlovers.com/patterns/search?query=pattern)
Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/search/?q=seamless%20pattern)
Specky Boy (http://speckyboy.com/2012/09/24/30-seamless-patterns-for-photoshop/)




Tips:
Just a tip that I took a while to figure out, When you find a pattern you like, rather then downloading one of the sizes displayed like 1600x1080, click on preview instead and it will open in a new tab as a perfect seamless square. Then you can right click and save as and save it as a pattern in photoshop so you can just fill>pattern.

I think there are threads about this in the TS2/TS3 Create forums, did you look there? They might be a little older but at least the larger sites would still be the same.

I tried looking for such a thread, but couldn't find any. There's so many different sections, I have no idea where to look!
I'm not exactly forum savvy.

I get a lot from colourlovers (I'm on mobile. Just google it and it will come right up.) They have patterns already made and you can make your own custom patterns and recolor existing patterns.

That's a very nice one! Also the tip for photoshop, thank you very much!
