Haha you're funny wiry :D I'm also a bit of a pattern-hoarder. I think it stems from my love of stationery. When I was young I collected beautiful writing paper - you know the kind that you get in a set with envelopes, in a small box - usually they were only about $2au.

Just thought I'd stop by again and say how amazing your patterns are, I think my launcher hates me right now with the amount I've just given it to download :P
From the moment I fell down that rabbit hole I've been told what I must do and who I must be. I've been shrunk, stretched, scratched and stuffed into a teapot. I've been accused of being Alice, and of not being Alice, but this is my dream. I'll decide where it goes from here.

Thank you Sunshine :)

I'm going to go pattern crazy today. I found another website with some really really good textures, and can hardly wait to patternize them all - nevermind my downloads folder full of images to do!

Yesterday I spent a lot of time learning about inkscape again. Certain patterns that I find I can see how they might have been made, and it's a very good learning curve to try and do it myself, rather than just editing the image. The last three are patterns that I made using inkscape yesterday.

Lace_07L
Seamless, found in fabrics, 2 colours

Lace_08
Seamless, found in fabrics, 2 colours


Concentric_Eyes
Seamless, found in abstract, 2 colours


Radial_Dots_L
Seamless, found in abstract, 2 colours

I love the third lace down! That would make a perfect tablecloth on the buffet table, which is really hard to make good-looking.

I like that one too - it was originally labelled bridal lace - and it does indeed look good on dresses, but I can imagine it on the buffet table, too. Any of the laces have the potential to look good on the table - I only make the default background black so that it is easy to see the design. Changing it to a very pale grey or off white is very effective for clothes, or to the skin colour of your sim!

The bottom tile pattern is exactly like the one in our bathroom! I can't wait to download it and remake my house in the sims!

Chuckles, it's just incredible the variety of patterns you keep coming up with!  Every day I check your thread, and every time you continue to amaze me.  I am running out of superlatives.   ;D

I think some of these patterns are definitely going to inspire story lines.  Thank you very, very much for all the wonderful patterns!

Thank you Schipp, it's ok - it never gets old for me to hear that you like them :D

I just love the Coin Stack pattern . Thanks so much for sharing your creations with us .  :)

This is one of my favourites too, simply because I had to work out how to keep the shine on the coins, and when I did it was like a break-through. My first attempt, with my usual black and white conversion left them very dull looking.

The bottom tile pattern is exactly like the one in our bathroom! I can't wait to download it and remake my house in the sims!
That is excellent! I love making practical, useful patterns as well as pretty and interesting ones.

Haha thank you Wiry - you should see my launcher - it's full of a lot of discards that have been remade - and it's not even all of them! Depending on what I'm working on, I do a factory reset, so the discards are scattered through several folders. All the uploads though, are kept safely in one folder.

When I first saw the Coin Stack I thought of corduroy fabric . The Lattice_02 reminds me of bamboo for some reason . There are so many possibilities with these designs . I'm just overwhelmed with so many wonderful patterns . I feel like I just fell into the largest fabric shop in the world . You're an amazing designer Mrs Chuckles !  ;D

You know you've been raiding Chuckles's patterns when you're re-colourising a favourite outfit for your Sim and you have it saved in five new patterns and can't make up your mind which is best!  Then the paparazzi shows up wearing one of your saves and you immediately enable the cheat mode just to get them out of it!!!

I love it when the NPC's show up in outfit's I've saved! Except there is this one dress that is super ugly that every single NPC wears and it's just like, where did your style go!

You know you've been raiding Chuckles's patterns when ...
It sounds like I have reached a new 'level' in my pattern making hobby :D

Here are some more I've been working on. Sometimes a pattern isn't quite right the first time and needs a little extra work, so they get a little left behind. Or sometimes they just get plain left behind.

Starry_Sky
Seamless, found in miscellaneous, 3 colours


Wheelie-Dots

I love the skulls! I usually use skulls for boys rooms if they like purple, but this could be really good in a goth child's bedroom!

Here are 3 more:

Oh, a quilt!  I was so excited when I saw that pattern, Chuckles!  I used to be very much into quilting (until I took up Sims instead) and I've been longing for a nice quilt for my Sims' beds.  Or on the wall.  Or maybe even on a piece of furniture.  I know this isn't the place for pattern requests, but if you're into quilt patterns, have you considered doing a crazy quilt pattern?

I love the idea of textile-related patterns in general.  Ausette's knit patterns have always been some of my favourites, along with the crochet one you shared with us awhile back.  I've always wished there were better fabric choices in the game - fabric that really looks like satin, velvet, etc. 

And the cloudy sky is a pattern I've been wishing for too!  Thank you so much for all the wonderful patterns you've been sharing with us.

Chuckles, you have indeed found a new calling.  I really really like that cloudy sky pattern and the quilt and the floral 11 and... so many patterns, so few sim hours in a day.  :'(
