e-Patterns for Dolls

I have added e-Patterns so you will be able to receive your patterns quickly and save the shipping charges. Shipping charges outside the United States are often higher than the cost of a pattern so this will be especially helpful for those outside the United States. The e-Patterns are in a PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader to download. Most people have the Adobe Acrobat Reader but if you find that you don’t, it is available free online.
