  4. Hello and Thank you, just made this for my granddaughter - she is receiving a horse for her doll for Christmas (used). Made a country Christmas pattern with shooting stars on the other side so it can be everyday - or Christmas all year.
    Bless you, Cathy

  5. Thank you for your pattern. I am a grandmother sewing for my granddaughters' AGDs and I have a little neighbor who also has an AGD. She lets me use her doll for measuring, modeling, and coming up with ideas. My neighbor gets whatever I make for my kiddos and she has a horse. Now I can surprise her with something unexpected! Thank you, Vicky
