After the 1.8 patch there have been difficulties installing, sharing and packaging new custom patterns. This does not affect recolours of patterns.

Here are some tips for installing and sharing new custom patterns.

Package files
If you want to use custom patterns in .package format or test your own .package file patterns, you need the framework installed. Please see this post for how to install the framework in your game.

Note: Package files don't share successfully. If you're wanting to create a custom pattern to share on an outfit, lot of piece of furniture, it needs to be shared in Sims3Pack format

Sims3 Packs
If you're sharing a pattern in Sims3Pack format, after installing it in your game you will need to package it onto either an outfit or a piece of furniture. If you try to share it as a pattern file by itself, it may not necessarily show up in someone else's game

Note: If you're having trouble getting a Sims3Pack to show up in your game, try moving your game folder somewhere else, opening up your game and creating a blank neighbourhood.
Then install the package file in your game and it should install successfully. If you need to share the file, attach it to an outfit or a piece of furniture and it should share with other Simmers without any issues.

In-game recolours
In-game recoloured patterns will share successfully under all circumstances. If you're not getting a recoloured pattern to show up after all of the above, it's possible that it may be based on a pattern from a store object that you don't own.

Thanks to Saraswati for the information.
