Facebook ads are meant to sell things to consumers, but when I see cute stuff in those ads, my mind immediately goes ‘OH HEY, I could make that for my sims!’ And that’s how I ended up with this happy little watermelon stuck in my mind… and my heart. There are two versions, one to decorate your home and one to decorate your sims’ shoulder – and there’s a bonus pose to show it off properly.

Watermelon Bag – Decor Item

  • New mesh created by yours truly
  • Non-recolourable with 1 preset
  • Found under Miscellaneous decor
  • Costs 150Β§
  • Proper LOD’s (Won’t look like a plant when you zoom out!)
  • Proper sunshadow (Take it outside and watch the shadow for hours!)
  • No occlusion shadow (Won’t make the entire room dark)
  • Polycount
    • High level of detail: ~7k
    • Medium level of detail: ~3.500
      • This is a HIGH poly count, please be mindful if your computer is not up to the task.

Watermelon Bag – Accessory

  • New mesh created by yours truly
  • Non-recolourable with 1 preset
  • Gender: Female

    • Medium level of detail: ~1300
      • This is a HIGH poly count, please be mindful if your computer is not up to the task

Handbag Pose

  • Not poselist-compatible
  • For ages teen and up
  • Can be used for any gender, though the accessory bag was made for female only

Known Issues

  • There’s a small gap by the zipper on both versions (see photo). This is to do with how Marvellous Designer makes zippers and I didn’t think it was a big enough problem that I wanted to do anything about it.
  • The accessory version looks a little funky in cas, but fine outside of it. I didn’t take a picture, sorry.
  • However, the textures aren’t anywhere near as nice on the acc version as the decor one – sorry! I tried to make a nicer version and failed miserably.
  • I would normally have a custom thumbnail for the accessory version, but I just couldn’t make it work.
  • The bag’s strap might clip with certain clothes of if you use certain sliders.
  • The pose might clip with certain clothes or if you use certain sliders.
  • The accessory version is probably cursed, tbh. Burn a sprig of sage and sprinkle salt in the corners of your house if this affects you.


The bag is based off Jellycat’s Amuseable Watermelon Bag.

Software: Blender, GIMP, TSR Workshop, Milkshape, Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer.

Terms of Use

You may:

  • Edit the meshes to suit your own needs
  • Retexture and recolour to your heart’s content
  • Convert to other games
  • Share those edits/conversions
  • Include the deco version with builds
  • Include the accessory version with sims
  • Include the accessory version with poses if you make any for it

If you make poses using the objects, please let me know and I’ll include them in this post. 😊

Please avoid:

  • Sharing unedited versions (it’s a waste of time man)
  • Putting any versions behind paywalls/adfly

Besides this, I like credit – it’s nice, so feel free to give me some of that.

I also ask that you let others freely edit your edited versions. I share things that I make because I want to contribute to the community that I’ve been a part of for a long time now. This community wouldn’t be anything without the things we create and share and I’m 100% for taking that creativity further by building on my work.

That said, I know Simsdom will be using this to grease their greedy pockets. Do your worst, you fuckers.

A Note on .Package Files

For most of the time I’ve been doing CC, I’ve been exporting a .package file directly from tsrw rather than exporting a .sims3pack and converting that to a .package. Unfortunately, I somehow didn’t realise that the process of converting to .sims3pack compresses the file, making it much, much smaller in size. In some instances, my .package files are therefore 10 or 20 times bigger than their .sims3pack counterparts.

Obviously, they still work, but they take up a lot of space on your computer and I don’t recommend using these old .package files. Below is a folder containing compressed versions of the files that I had uploaded in uncompressed versions. This only counts for the .package. If you want to download a .sims3pack version, simply follow the regular download link above. And otherwise, use the links pasted below. I’m sorry for any inconvenience caused by this!

Thank You!

For looking and downloading and just being here. Things are tough around the world, so I hope you’ll get a little smile out of this silly bag. It’s not much but it’s a little smile from me to you. I’m probably going to be taking classes from home for the foreseeable future, but at least the sun is shining and I made an unreasonably big cheesecake. I want to direct an extra big thanks to the readers of Heartwood. I feel like I’ve been seeing new faces and getting comments, so thanks so much for receiving my little story so well. You guys are wonderful.

I hope everyone’s doing well – remember to be extra good to yourself and take care.

Lots of love and πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰,
