    I belong to a group of ladies that make doll clothes for abused little girls. Love using your patterns. They are stylish and instructions are easy to follow.

    So excited to make the treat stand – my girls constantly make them from boxes and fabric so this will be super exciting!

    I love that you have great PVC project patterns to go along with the clothing patterns. I always tell people, too, that I love your points program, because it is actually reasonable to get enough points to earn a pattern. So I end up spending more here than elsewhere.

    Thanks Kristen has always been so helpful. I have emailed her about questions I have and she has responded very quickly. I have had problems with other site with that. I love all the patterns I have but my granddaughters love their tents with sleeping bags and onies sleepers. Congrats on making it 3 years with your business. Keep up the good work so we can all have smart dressed dolls.

    I will be celebrating my Birthday on August 20th even if I do not win anything from your website! BUT, I would love, love, love to win the Fresh Lemonade Set to go with my Chatty Cathy PVC Lemonade Stand that I made! You always provide very detailed directions that are easy to follow!
