    What am I doing wrong? Everyone is thanking you for the instructions but I get nothing but a blank page or another of the same page. I have the most recent Adobe Reader.
    are you clicking the blue download box above the jacke, I didn't have any problem at all.
    I just wasn't patient enough. Tried again, waited and it appeared. Thanks.

    I've learned that you have to be patient for PDF files to load up but once they do, they sure are worth it. Without PDF, the files such as this tutorial would be impossible for us to down load as most of our email providers wouldn't allow the files size. Glad you finally got it.

Thanks for the simple instructions and sharing the technique! I think I am going to try ruffled cuffs, what do you all think?
    That would be pretty. How do you make ruffled cuffs?

    LOVE IT! Hmmmm, ruffled cuffs?? My guess is cut bias strip 2X width and 1 1/2 length you want. Fold in half, gather baste on and then add facing piece??

    Thanks so much for coming up with a great tutorial. I have two questions, I read where you mentioned being careful not to stretch the sweatshirt when sewing the pieces down. Would using a fusible interfacing help to keep the sweatshirt from stretching? Second, have you used any other fabrics than cotton? I got lucky enough to get swatches of silk from a drapery and upholstery store that was closing. I'd like to make a crazy patch jacket. Do you think the sweatshirt base idea would work?
    Sorry that was three questions! Chris

    If you are just careful, you shouldn't need any interfacing. I think that using mixed fabrics would make an awesome jacket! Just be careful about how you wash it.

    Can't wait to see yours!

    Hmmm, it appears to still work for me. You can pm me your email and I can send it that way.
