    Hi Buttercreamcakeartist:
    Interesting name...bet you make cakes, too. I tried that and loved it but didn't think I was good enough to give up my day job to do cakes!

    I re-sent the slipper pattern in a JPEG format. I think it's downloadable now. Yes, I know Corel is a dead computer language but it's the only program I ever learned to operate so I'm resistent to let it go.

    Merry Christmas! Randy

    Randy,
    Yes, I do make cakes! LOL! I'm pretty good at it! ;) I just make them in my "spare" time, really. I made my first wedding cake just last month!!!!!!!! The wedding cake was for my BIL and SIL. It was time-consuming!!!!!!!!

    I was going to suggest printing the document, scanning, then uploading it, but by the time I came back in today, it was already done and uploaded! Awesome! Thanks to you and all the ppl that helped on that one. I love this idea, and my mom will go crazy over it.

    Happy Holidays to all!

    Hello All--I'm new to the forum but have thoroughly enjoyed all the tips and help that you ladies give. I have a daughter who works in Neo-Natal unit at the local hospital and she says they like the fleece blankets to put under the preemies for warmth. No tying--and about a yd. square. About all you would have to add is a binding if you want. Be sure to wash before you donate although they will probably be rewashed and sanitised.

    I tried opening the fleece slipper pattern, but couldn't either. You need the "Corel Word Perfect" program from what my computer is telling me. Oh, well, I was just curious what it was like, cause I already make fleece socks to sell at my craft shows.

    The procedure to convert WordPerfect to Word is pretty simple you change the file association like this:
    Download WP File
    Right click on icon
    Choose - PROPERTIES (Last on menu list)
    Under type of file, you will see OPENS WITH, and a button that says CHANGE
    Click on the CHANGE button and choose Word. I usually open the file, and then do a SAVE AS to make sure it is on my system as a Word doc.

    Give me a little time and I will upload the Word files. This really looks easy to make!

    randy,
    i use both corel and microsoft and can assure you that if you know one, you can use the other. word functions pretty much the same, but corel has some features that make more sense. they used to be able to read and save either file, but as i've had both for the past ...well, let's not go there! in any case, i'm not sure if they can still read the other file. (obviously not if she couldn't open the file.) but if you have a problem in the future, i can convert a file for you.

    Triciasquilt:
    The first download was in Corel but I later (in Dec) downloaded in JPEG program so try again as I think you can probably get the directions for the fleece slippers now.

    thank you for the offer. I will take you up on it as needed. I'm so far removed from computer "geekdom" that I can't believe it. I struggle but somehow manage to get things done by hook or crook!
