Thank you so much for alphabet letter patterns in different sizes…I’ve not had much luck finding them elsewhere on line.

Thank you!!! I needed a kitty applique for my daughters shirt, I adjusted the spooky cat to have a more round face and it’s perfect!


I love applique! I’m always looking for something new. Thanks! I found at least one I’m going to use right away.
