Love all of the ideas in here! Should be fun trying them out.

I can't wait to make the Framed Jewelry Organizer to finally get my jewelry displayed nicely!

Your http bit ly link opens a simplicity page, what a palaver to get a pattern , wasted enough time on this hunt and favecrafts .com

@grobertson12 77121 03 It looks like Simplicity removed the pattern from their site unfortunately. If you download this free eBook, the full pattern and instructions are located on page 56! Hope that helps! -Kaylee, Editor of FaveCrafts

It was definitely not clear that the sun dress pattern was in the free craft book. This sort of poor communication makes FaveCrafts annoying.

Hi there, so sorry about the confusion. I hope you found what you are looking for. If not, please respond and let me know how I can help - Julia from FaveCrafts

Why would I want to unload anything from liars--especially if it's supposed to be "free"? I wanted the yellow sundress, I don't want the 17 other projects or your cookies.

18 Projects Every Crafter Wants. The yellow sundress pattern is in this PDF downloadable free e-book.

Yes, it is in the booklet, but the instructions should state this instead of having to play scavenger hunt to find it. This is very unprofessional.

I would like the sundress pattern but link is not working.

Hi there - the full pattern is available when you download the eBook. You can also copy and paste this link into your browser --> Thanks! Julia from FaveCrafts

I tried the link you gave several times and cannot get the fress pattern. Page says it's a mistake. I sure would like the sundress pattern. Any other suggestions to get it?

Hi there, Did you copy and paste this link into your browser? I just tried and it worked on my end. Give it a shot and see what happens - Thanks! Julia from FaveCrafts

Hi there - To download this eBook, you need to download Adobe Acrobat (the eBook will download as a PDF file). If you already have Adobe Acrobat, make sure it is the most up-to-date version. Hope that helps - Julia from FaveCrafts

could not download - network error

Hi there - I was able to download the eBook on my end, so it doesn't appear to be an error with the site. Check your connection and make sure you have Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer (our eBooks are PDF files). Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

My favorite stitch is the double crochet but the half Double crochet is a close second. I like double crochet Because it works up quickly & you make beautiful Popcorns, criss cross stitches & bobbles with it. I like the half double because it crochets up quicker than Single crochet but still makes a tight fabric with few holes. I never win anything so I'd be thrilled to win this prize.
