This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've searched and searched but haven't been able to find any basic, no patterns, no prints kind of recolors of the Maxis crib, so I made some. They're not perfect, as I originally made them for my own use only, but hopefully you guys will find them useful.

There are 16 recolors of the bedding, all have a white fringe. The frame comes in two colors, white and black. All files are named clearly, so you can pick the colors you want, if you don't want all of them.

Enjoy! :D

great work!

but one thing, though. I've tried to download them, but it seems there might be a problem with the rar-file. I've tried several times, but I get the same message every time, that there's something wrong with the files. the only one that works is the white crib frame. is it just my computer, or...?

Hmm. I can download it just fine, no error messages. That happens sometimes, though, but usually it'll work after a few tries. No one else seems to be having that least not that I know of. If you can't get it to work, PM me and I'll try to reupload the files for you.

That's weird. Well, I zipped the files up again, hopefully they'll work now. If not, then I really don't know what to do.
Download - please read all instructions before downloading any files!

Thanks! I've been looking everywhere for a simple recolor of cribs. All the patterns are nice, but not when you're building your nursery theme around something other than the crib's bedding.
