    Hi,

    I make the Biodiversity Suits pictured above (the Carolina Parakeet and the Passenger Pigeon). Thanks for including them in this great list! I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking for my pattern, and I just want to let everyone know that I make them up as I go along and don’t write them down. As much as I appreciate the kind words and interest, there is no pattern to share.

    Best Wishes,

    Laurel Roth
