Oh WOW Chuckles these are awesome... I'm enough of a girly-girl that I simply adore flowers and butterflies and now my sims can share in the love!

My particular favourites are the lace pattern and the old-fashioned roses.  I've always wished for a good lace pattern in the game.

Me too!  Chuckles these are just fantastic!

Thank you, Bubbles, Ladybug, Schip,  Simfulicious, Mags, and Magipie. I really had a lot of fun making them. I worked it out, and then went absolutely nuts with google images, and even spent a good few hours on a couple of my own. I've got another one I was working on last night from scratch, but just getting the tones right.

I too, love the old fashioned roses - they are exactly like my bedspread. I have a pattern that matches the underside, but it is not seamless. I might work on making it seamless. I often use the fish-net pattern in fabrics for lace, using skin colour as the second tone (which is what I have done in the example here). I was also thinking of curtains. I'll definitely do more if I can find some.

Here's another one I made myself. I spent hours and hours in photoshop on it last night, then left it to go to bed. After I went to bed I had a brainwave - it would be MUCH easier to do in CAP. So I made the daisy into a sticker, and the plaid pattern into a sticker. It seems to go fine in game without needing any numbers tweaking in S3PE, but let me know if you have any problems.



Here is a recolour:

Oh, yes!!!

Love the look of the lace stockings!  Chuckles, I am so very glad you took up pattern-making!  I hope you never get tired of it.  :D

Thank you Ladybug and Schip :) I aim to please!

Just an update - the Daisies_01 and the Floral_03 patterns (that antiquie one you liked Schip) are now available as sims3packs.

Techno-babble:
For anyone who likes/prefers the .package method, these must be installed as sims3packs, otherwise they will not work, because CAP does not give new patterns new Instance IDs. I found this out the hard way, and have done a lot of research into it, and a whole lot of stuffing around. If you would like them to be installed as .package files, you will need to open each .package file and rename the _img resources and give them new IDs, and then update the _XML to reflect the changes. Inge explains how to do that here: http://www.den.simlogical.com/denforum/index.php/topic,1913.msg12111.html#msg12111

I slowed down a bit on the pattern-making today, and spent a LOT of time downloading new shapes and vectors for photoshop. Here are 3 from today. I made the Floral_Border_01 myself :)

Lace_03

Found in fabrics, seamless.




Floral_Border_01 and Floral_Border_01R
Seamless, found in themes.




Handicapped Sign
For handicapped spaces! Found in miscellaneous.




If anyone would like, I'm also considering doing a 4-part handicapped space set of patterns, so that you can have a 2x2 sign, in the middle of a 7x4 space, instead of the standard 7x3. Seen as how handicapped spaces are wider.

haha whoops! They are there now :D Every time I open the cupboard with the coffee beans, they tell me 2 coffees a day is not enough (seriously, they smell that good). This is confirmation.

The other day I finally worked out how to do a 4 channel pattern. It's not as easy as it looks! Especially since the pattern I made wasn't all stencils, but stencils and stickers. It's fairly easy in CAP, but CAP wasn't being nice to me (problem solved now though). So I screencapped the different layers from CAP, and tried doing it in photoshop. I had given up on it after a few hours. Once again, I had an epiphany whilst trying to go to sleep, and so had another go at it this morning. Unfortunately it's too pixely to use, but this is what I made:



I've downloaded a tonne of shapes for the shape tool in PS so I'll try and make something similar with those.

I have found a lot of lovely images whilst looking for good material to convert to patterns. Some are so nice it just kills me that they are not seamless and can't be made so. So, I'm going to do a set of Wall Art - when a painting just won't do! I made the frame and matt in photoshop, and imported everything into CAP.

Here is my first trial run:

Wall Art 01



This is best placed on the middle tile of the wall-sets that came with Late Night "Large Wood Squares".
Found in Plastics and Rubber.

I've been wishing for this for a long time.  Now I can hardly wait to get into my game and start playing with it!  Thanks very much, Chuckles.

More fun today with photoshop :) Here is a 4 channel pattern, with FIVE colours (two channels mix to make the fifth)

Border_03 and Border_03R
Found in themes, there is a left and right version.



If anyone would like a top/bottom or corner version please let me know and I'll whip one up :D

Border_03H
Found in themes, this pattern fits in the middle of the wall border for "Wall With Border and Ornate Crown and Baseboard Moulding" and other wall coverings with the border in the same position. It sits centre with a little room on top and bottom. The matching Hex code for the green colour is c5f0d2

Border_03T and Border_03B
Found in themes, the border is at the top of the pattern on one, at the bottom on the other (hence the T and B)



Also a reminder (add-ended to first post since I didn't put it there right away) you can use my patterns for anything you like, but please credit me if you share.

Please could you make one for the other side, and possible also a border? I'd love to use it in a Nursery!

What do you mean by 'the other side'? There is a left and right one there. By border do you mean top edge? Or so that it fits in the border trim about 4/5 way up the wall?

Vines_01 is awesome. As soon as I start using CAP patterns again it's going in my game.

Thank you :)

Here is another I spent a few hours on today - made it myself with some shape tools for photoshop. It looks awesome in any colours. I did a spring combination, and an autumn combination, and even just plain black and white, or white on black.

Leaves_02
Found in themes, has 4 recolourable channels.
