Customer Reviews

mistake on pattern Review by Sandra

Bought the fabric and interfacing. Cut out according to directions. Realized afterwards there was no way the roof pieces would work as cut. Directions said cut two pieces 4 1/2" x 17 1/2". It should have read 14 1/2" not 4 1/2". By then my fabric and interfacing was cut incorrectly and I had to sew pieces together to make it work, or buy more fabric and interfacing. I pieced it together. I tried to notify Interweave of the error as a courtesy to them, however I got a canned response from them that clearly showed they hadn't actually read my email. I then sent the same info to the designer, but never got a response, so I guess no one cares. Probably won't buy from this source again. But the Cat House did come out cute and my cat loves it.
