There is noticeably a bundle to know about this. I assume you made certain nice points in features also.

very nice patterns cant wait to try.

These patterns were fun and fairly easy. I enjoyed helping my neighbor with them. I waited for her to pick one and then we worked on it together. We even added apple-pie spice to add a really cool scent to the donut pin cushion.

I am hoping to find a 'look alike' pattern for Bity Baby by American Doll. I don't want to have to buy the actual pattern as it is quite expansive. Anyone able to help me. Thanks, a grandma wanting to make her granddaughter some doll clothes.

I'm looking for a pattern for a dress that holds plasic shopping bags.

I have shopped for baby or toddler dresses at thrift stores. Sew the bottom closed except for a gap in the middle to pull bags out. Put on a hanger or make a tab on the back of the dress to hang. Put bags in top and pull out at bottom. Very cheap way to make them.

Do you ever have or ever had any free sewing patterns for little girl's sundresses,, any clothes for little girls or little boys clothes. I used to sew all the time for my children, but got rid of all the patterns, thinking I will never need them. OOPS! Never thought of grandchildren! Now I have a grandaughter almost 5 and a grandson 2 1/2. She wears about a size 6,, but is very tall and thin, so anything needs to be for thin children. And my grandson wears 3-4 I think,,,,,,,,,,,, he is shorter and stouter. Anyway any help is appreciated. Btw,,,, I love the patterns you show here, and hopefully, will feel up to trying some,, not sure how long though. But it is nice to look forward to. Thanks for the beautiful crafts of all kinds.

I enjoy having these free patterns. They give me something to do on the nights when the "boob tube" has all of those re-runs on. I am also looking for a pattern for clothes to fit a large cement goose. I cannot see paying the prices for the clothes when I have tons of fabric and I can make them myself, but I do need a pattern to follow now since my hands are handicaped and it is hard for me to just eye and measure now. I would love any help at all. Thanks and "KEEP ON SEWING".
