This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
EDIT:
Due to fairywasteland's request, I added a black & white checked pack. Hope this is similar to what you had in mind, and I hope you don't hate me too much for taking so long! XD

Hey all,
This has got to be one of my new favorite accessory meshes! I had a lot of fun recoloring it. (kind of nice to break away from clothing every once in a while, lol)
You need generalzoi's "Booksack" mesh (found here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=142146 ) or it won't show up in your game and you'll be sad.

I made six different colors. (wanted to make more but I figured six was enough, heh) The first .zip contains the pink, blue and yellow bags, while the second has the red, green and grey ones.

Huge thanks to generalzoi for allowing us to recolor her meshes! I want to try the messenger bag next, hehe. :D

Thanks sooo much for this!!!
I finally figured out where the backpack was from, I saw it in a YouTube video a girl made with her Sims. Her Sim was wearing it.
My favorite is the pink one and the checkered one is my second-favorite. (Not surprised that pink is my favorite, because the best color of all time is pink, in my opinion.)

You need a mesh for these to show up in your game. I linked to it in the first post, but here is the link again: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=142146 Download the "booksack" file!

Isn't Late Night the latest Sims 3 expansion? These files are for the Sims 2, unless, for some reason sims 2 files can be used in the sims 3. (I know nothing about sims 3 CC)
