A few months ago, I bought some really sweet e-patterns from Sharie of SReetz Bears and Friends. She sells these in her Etsy store. http://www.etsy.com/shop/SReetzBears
I have always loved her creations and adopted one of her pandas in 2009.
I have only just got around to making a kitty from her 'Frisky' pattern. The instructions were very clear and the kittie only took a small amount of fabric. She was great fun to make. I may have got a little carried away with her markings, but painting fur is very new to me. She will go nicely with Scottie, my panda. I will have to try her ellie pattern next!
