My Very First Pattern

Hi all,

I thought I would share how I got to this point of selling my book at Amazon. I'm sure many of you have thought about writing a book or it at least crossed your mind. I know it didn't cross my mind until I started my own craft magazine and realized I had alot of funny things happen to me while in this crazy craft business. I decided I wanted to share what I know and hopefully help others. So here I am...
To start off let me show you my very first pattern. This was the one that started me on this journey to where I am now. You can say I blame it on the cat.
My first pattern was McCalls called Fat Cat! I changed the ears up and now I have my Chubby Bunny! I sold these cuties for $15 which was big money to me back then.

Here is what the original pattern looked like. I must say that they were the cutest pattern I ever bought and simple to do. Even if it took me 2 hours to make one bunny. lol
It has taken me 22 years to get where I am now. But if I can help you get to this point quicker with my experiences or what I call bumps & bruises then I will do what I can. Welcome to my's gonna be a bumpy ride so hold on. lol
