If it's easier, I can delete the seam allowances and re-send ghilie the pattern.  Sorry to complicate things!

Now, I don't have to think about it. Thanks for that Crafty.Canadian!

And thanks, ghilie for sending me the pattern and instructions!

I'm still Poppet-less, my contact paper idea didn't work for me. Maybe it would for someone with better eyesight but I just couldn't keep track of the edge! Coloured contact paper might work....but I only had clear  Wink
Can you buy a spray adhesive? A bunch of people on the stenciling board use that and regular paper to stencil so I bet it would work for the pattern too. Smiley
If not send me a pm I'd be happy to send you some freezer paper. I have a brand new roll that I've only used a bit of. Smiley

I use spray adhesive for my poppet pattern and it works great, Spray only the paper pattern and allow to dry, that makes the pattern repositional

Kay, I'm glad the seam allowances are a hit.  AutoCAD does rock.  I find it's really easy to draft patterns because you can measure, mirror, and fix things with just a few clicks. Speaking of which, I modified the CAD drawing from the original pattern to make a racoon pattern.  So, here he is - Bruce the Racoon!

He's made of plain old dollar store felt and faux fur from Fabricland (regular $34.99 per meter on SALE for $10 per meter!).
Mods to the original pattern include: widening the face and the hips, shortening the legs, and adding fingers and toes.
I think this pattern would be suitable for a fox (in red or oranged coloured fabric) so that might be my next one.

Well I am totally inept at quoting.
So thanks to all for the advice. I will let you know how it goes and I'll post pictures of the finished product.
I actually have most of the day to myself!!! (that never happens being a home schooling mom) So after I clean a little Smiley I will be working on my poppet.

This is totally irrelevant, but it's cool to meet a homeschooler mom.  I'm in my 10th year of homeschooling as a sophomore in high school!!
How cool. My homeschool daughter is close to your age. She's 15 and a freshman. I have 3 girls but I only homeschool the oldest. She loves it but might be ready to try high school.
