In this set are 16 Retro- and Kids-Patterns.
They are suitable for clothes, furniture, walls...

You can use "Create a Style" to change every color of the patterns. And they are seamless, of course.

If you want just a few of them: The names above the room pictures are the same as the ones of the packages. Just delete the ones you don't like.

The colors they come with are shown in the pictures with the rooms. On the pictures with the clothes there are examples how the patterns look like with other colors.

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.

I'm not big on downloading patterns as I feel there is plenty in game to choose from and am very picky as I don't want to go overboard with CC, but I downloaded these. The patterns are absolutly fantastic and are very well done. Thank you!

Every time i download a file and try to put it into my sims 3-mods-pkgs folder, a blip comes up and tells me the file name and access is denied. Am I doing something wrong? I really wanted these retro patterns!

Are you using Windows Vista? Then you must be an administrator on your pc to put something in this folder.
Do other downloads work?

These are very nice... very nice indeed!

I was trying to resist - my patterns take so long to load as it is - but nope, these are too good to pass up.

Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the community. Especially the ladybugs.
