Thank you so much! The pattern for the pointed toe flats is adorable and looks so easy.
I can’t wait to try it out. Melody is always in need of more shoes, and this will be a simple yet professional looking way to make them for her. Thanks again!

I have made the Strappy Sandals and the Clogs. I am a visual learner and love all the photos that are in the patterns as they support the pattern text very well. I have not tried the Oxfords or the Pointed Flats yet. Thank you for all the awesome shoe patterns and the opportunity to get one free. I keep trying out more. Boots are next on the list already cut out and waiting to be made.

Love ur clothes for AGDoll & deciding which pattern should b free is totally awesome, however, hate the PDF patterns, they don’t print out right, don’t get all the pattern pieces & r unreadable. I’d love to see these patterns n paper, I’d b willing to buy at a reasonable price of course. Just a statement!

I have both patterns (AG) they’re both great. I have purchased almost everything LJ has, however ….. the last two Freebies, I did not have….. very thankful for those! I have really enjoyed making clothes for my daughter’s dolls and teaching her to sew at the same time.
Thank you Cinnamon and Team LJ

I thought it was only right for me to order a new pattern from you when you offered free ones. Sure hope the pleated skirt for the American Girl doll wins this week, as I purchased the Aspen dress pattern on March 28. I had a hard time trying to decide what my purchase would be, as all of your patterns are so cute. Right now, I’m wishing I had made a different decision as it looks like the dress pattern is ahead in the voting.

@Jean, that’s a version of a tee that is made from the T-Shirt Variations pattern – the higher neck tee pattern piece is used but it’s not hemmed. Instead you would just cut a small fabric strip to use as binding around there neckline.
