Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is an excellent tutorial for making patterns. It is written in easy to understand language and clear photograph steps. I'm not much on sewing by machine but do make projects sewing by hand. I think this is also a good guide to use to make a copy of a favorite old well loved stuffy, home decor and other projects. The link is working perfectly!
