I loved the pattern thank you so much.
I bought this pattern because it was so cute. I've made several already and I absolutely love it. I made the snowmen, which are adorable but because I love the pattern, I looked for other uses for it. I decided to buy fleece with my football teams logo. I cut out the helmet and attached it in place of the snowman. Now I have my own team sweatshirt.
Very nice, easy to put together pattern that sews up easily/quickly and looks so sweet! I made mine out of pink fleece and my Gingerbread Girl out of fleece w/ribbon bow. Turned out sooo cute -- photo @ www.maricopastamper.blogspot.com/ and on Kristin's Too Cute to be Ugly Contest page on FB. Everyone should make these for their dolls -- I'll definitely be making more!
I never received the pattern for ugly sweatshirts Janet Drewes
Very cute, made one shirt but had to use an iron-on design for lack of time. Plan to make the real designs for next year.
