They're very cute but I felt like instructions were confusing. The pattern pieces don't stay what to cut mirrored or 2 of and the instructions would have been much easier to decipher with photographs of the process like most indie patterns I've tried have.

File delivery
Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.


I currently accept payment through PayPal and Etsy direct checkout. Michigan residents will have 6% sales tax added to their total when checking out through PayPal. If payment is not received shortly after completing the Etsy transaction, I will attempt to contact the buyer via Etsy conversation. I cannot deliver any purchase until payment clears. If no payment or communication is received within 3 days after the transaction, all items will be relisted, appropriate feedback will be left, and the transaction will be cancelled.
