Happy anniversary!
I makes me happy just knowing that there are people who love cultural heritage as much as you do.
Thanks for the adorable pattern.


Happy Anniversary Patternbee!
I'm so glad that you (and Greg!) do what you do and share it with the rest of us. I hope you both know how much your efforts are truly appreciated. Thanks from the bottom of my crafty heart.

I wish I knew how to sew so I could make a lambkin!! So cute. Happy Easter!


Thank you and congratulations. I didn't know about Pattern Bee when I asked if you would share the lambkin pattern. Thank you for your generosity. I can't wait to delve into the other patterns. I'd really like to be doing some redwork. If only there were more hours in the day.


happy birthday! and thank you for sharing the adorable lambkins pattern!

Happy Anniversary! Thank you so much for the lambkin pattern; it is so adorable!


Ithink it's great that you've found a way to revive/preserve all of these wonderful patterns and share them with others. Happy Anniversary to you and PatternBee!


Just discovered your site last month. Congratulations! It's wonderful you started a business out of what you love to do. Thank you for the lamb pattern, I fell in love with it when you posted about it the other day. Very excited to make my very own!


You are so generous! Thanks for the lambkin pattern..You KNOW I will make one of these!!
Happy anniversary to Pattern Bee! Love it ALL!


Thank you Vicki for all your free patterns! I've said it before, you are always so generous!!

Happy one year anniversary too! You will always be where I come first for any stitching patterns, xo.


Congratulations on your 1 year! Im trying to start my online business and its so much work with 3 kids! Way to go! I running over to grab that beautiful forget-me-not pattern thank-you so much!!!!


I made the little lamb this afternoon as my reward for cleaning the house. I didn't have any wool felt of the right color and my stash was buried under a pile, so I used some old white towels I had laying around. I was afraid they might be too thick, but she turned out perfectly adorable. Thank you so much for the pattern!


I just wanted to say Happy Birthday and thank you so much for giving away the free pattern. I loved the lamb the first time I saw it. Also you have inspired me in many ways especially with my old blankets. Thank you so much.


Thanks so much for the lamb pattern - the rest of the animals look really really sweet, too. I'd love to make one of those ducks - I'd be willing to use the pattern to put into a usable format if you'd like to post the others as well, contact me if you're interested.


Just wanted to show you my little lambkin. I made it the same day I printed the pattern from my computer, the ink was hardly dry!!
Thanks again and I hope to be able to make some of the other animals as well!

Hi Vicki,

I love the little lamb and I hope to find some time soon to make one! Thanks!

I write a weekly craft article for homeschoolblogger and I was wondering if I could link your post and also use your lamb picture. I honestly am not quite sure what is OK as far as using people's pics if you are linking to their posts and tutorials. If you have any info on this I would appreciate it!

Thanks again!


I'll add my Happy Anniversary! I've never really been tempted by any of the other free patterns on the internet, but I have printed this out and can't wait to make it... my parents are sheep farmers so I'm sure I'll make more than one! But at the moment I've a few custom purse orders on the go so am not sure when I'll be able to get to this sweet lamb.

Congrats again! You offer me so much fun inspiration, love your blog.


hi! i just found your generous offer of the free lambkin pattern--so cute, i can't wait to make one! i was hoping you would also share with me your source for the tiny orange fabric flowers you have around the neck of one of the lambs on the actual page with the pattern. i used to have quite a stash of these in pastel colors that i had had forever, and now the only ones i've been able to find are white.
love your wonderful blog--it's an oasis!
thanks so much,
