  1. Disappointed. I subscribed to the Newsletter, but never got access to the free pattern. Apparently in order to download the “free” pattern, you have to open an account and enter your address and billing information.

  2. My granddaughter has a bunch of American Girl dolls with mini quilts, which I made for them.
    Now onto bathing suits, thank you for this tutorial.
