Thank you for sharing your applique patterns so generously. I am a pensioner from South Africa and can’t afford to buy patterns. I knit and crochet warm clothes for kids that also can’t afford to buy it. Now I can put embellishments on it that will turn a piece of clothing to a bright and interesting piece of work. Thanks again.
