We don't have anyplace in town any more where we can buy small shoulder pads. Could I make my own? I have a a separated shoulder and need something to fill in. Thanks. Barb

Sure, making your own is a very easy project. I was going to tell you how I would do it, but there are actually several/a ZILLION tutorials online. Check out some of them:

RE: any suggestions

I find that whenever I need a pattern for something small, I use Google to find them. I just made my year-old grandson a tie for St Patrick's Day, using a pattern and instructions I found online. (Cheaper than even patterns on sale at Joann's!) I have also made shopping cart covers for both of my grandkids, using instructions found online. Years back, I found patterns and instructions online for "elf collars" and "elf shoes", when none were available through the "big 4" pattern companies. So I'd go with the other Donna above -- check out those links!
