Here are a few Tshirt designs I made earlier , Snoopy and Charlie Brown from peanuts. I sized them to fit onto the correct position on a tshirt but they also work well on walls and other surfaces. As you can probably tell from the screenshots the image also shows up on the back of clothing too, although this isnt practical I couldn't find a way around it. A good idea is to use it under an open shirt if this is a problem. If anyone wants me to make any more designs like this Id be happy to do so.

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.

just curious, did you use the pattern tool available in the download and what size did you make your pattern? I'm not exactly very artistic so I'm having to bonehead my way through the thing and my results are... subpar. :p

gah, meant to click feedback. >_<

That's so awesome! Are they easy to make? Since you're asking for designs, is it possible to make a pattern of a cute adorable ferret like this one:http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b...22qoGrML_ph.jpg
?

Yeah I just used the Delphy pattern creator. I aways make them 256x256 as thats the default. In order to get the logo sitting in the middle of the tshirt I just made sure that no part of snooby was above the middle of the image. Use a vector drawing program first that helps keep the lines looking smooth.

These are fantastic, if you could do some disney characters like donald duck or mickey mouse that would be awesome

This is SUPERB! I love graphic tees. And yes, many more is welcomed! Think you can make a 'CHOWDER', 'SCOOBY DOO' and any other Cartoon Network graphic for me?

Awesome, any chance of a template .psd or .dds (or even jpg) so others can understand how you did this?

If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten.

I agree! I'd be willing to learn how to make patterns if it would result in getting to have t-shirts with things on them!

Thanks for the design.

Ok.

Here's the dds file. I think it can only be downloaded 10 times, I'm not sure how to get around that.

http://rapidshare.com/files/2441853...py_Sit.dds.html

I'll explain how I did because it really wasnt that difficult.

1) Download the image you want to make into a pattern, or you can just draw it if you want. Try to use something with less than 4 distinct colours or you may end up with problems.

2) use a vector drawing program to trace the pattern. You can bypass this step but it will result in a lower quality pattern if you do.

3) print screen it and load it into photoshop or another similar program to sort out the colour channels. (see the tutorial on this site it explains all you need to know). Try to use a file size of 256x256 pixels as this is what delphy's pattern maker uses as standard.

4) To get the logo/graphic to appear central on a t-shirt you need to make sure that none of the image goes above the halfway line as this will result in part of it showing up on the sleeves and keep it to the middle as well, you'll see this if you download the snoopy dds.

Thats all there is to it. takes a little while but it's worth it in the end. Make sure you read the pattern tutorial on the site as well its a lot more in depth.

The only problem is that the image will also appear on the back and there isnt a way round this currently. If anyone can figure that out be sure to get back to me though. Thanks, hope to see some more t-shirt designs appearing up here soon. I'll try and work on some of the requests but I'll stick to the cartoons because I'm not too good with realism.

hope this helps. give me a shout if you guys need anything else

Thanks for this. It really bugs me that we can't just add a single graphic to the front of a t-shirt. This is a good workaround for now, though.

Actually, we can: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=345973 and http://nene.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=346220 .

Sounds like there'll be a new tool, new forum section and hopefully a tutorial on it coming out soon.

Props to Rabeeto for figuring out how to do this in CaST though looks great!
