Without a save able pdf file I won’t save cute patterns and ideas like yours. I only save patterns electronically anymore, and paper print only patterns I actually make. Sorry that your cute patterns won’t be made by sewers like me that are currently in the middle of a different project and would consider yours in the near future when going through my files to start something new.
Thanks for your note Colleen. You can always save these types of ideas to Pinterest and find them when you are ready to get stitching.
