Strip Pieced Christmas Stocking - Knitting Crochet Sewing Crafts Patterns and Ideas!

Toy patterns-for people who enjoy knitting toys All the patterns in the Toy Patterns Shop are available as PDF downloads, and range from 5 to 28 pages each. Printed paper versions are not produced, and a mail order service is not possible. Each pattern includes photograph(s) of the finished toy, and the size of these have been kept small so as not to use too much of your ink. The number of photographs will vary from pattern to pattern, depending upon how many are available, as those in older designs were only taken as a reference before the toy was sent off to the magazine. However, patterns of recent designs contain more photographs, including close-up views of important details to help with the making-up process. The patterns cost from £2.50 each, which is payable through PayPal, either via your PayPal account or by using a credit or debit card.
