About

Welcome
I started sewing when my trolls needed clothes and have never stopped. As I am left handed I taught myself to knit, crochet, tat and what every else struck my fancy. I want to try my hand a weaving some time soon.
I am Blessed to be married over 30 years with two grown childern and several precious grandchildern.

All patterns are checked by me. With cut patterns I open each piece make sure its the right pattern number, etc. Note any changes to the pattern piece ie size adjusted, torn, or missing piece. I do not open factory folds that do not look disturbed. If a pattern is Uncut I classify it as new in the Shop. Patterns are stored in file, pattern cabinets and plastic crates.

We are smoke free but not pet free. Most of my patterns have been pre-owned.

Please check out my other Shop at http://dotisspot.etsy.com
I will be glad to combine shipping on purchases made the same day between shops. Just email me at patternplay@rittermail.com

Let me know if there is any way I can help you, also I will be glad to give you additional pics or more information. Doti

Concerned that that the pattern is not exactly your measurements? Here are several sites with altering information:
