Sail Patterns for older boats?

Anyone know where to find sail info for the older little boats? I just got a puffer that needs a sail. I don't mind making one, but a pattern would make success a lot more likely on the first attempt.
Thanks in advance!

This place has the sails (both for under $600)...

Sunfish Sails, Catalina Sails, Hobie Sails, Small Boat Sails from the Sail Store

This place has a sail kit, all dimensions, and maybe able to supply a pattern...

Thanks!
I found the sailrite page last night after I posted the question. They have the specs for all four sails. Still trying to imagine running a spinnaker on a 12 foot boat!
My nephew is bringing me cloth like they use for big stadium or building banners. The sails are small enough that my machine should sew them just fine. If I can ever get Sailcut to actually work on my computer, his work has the machines to cut and laminate the panels if needed. They have a full fabrication set up and the workers, so they are quite interested in my attempt.
I bought the boat with trailer for 150$, so having to make a sail is not a big deal. This morning there is a 14 foot AMF boat for sale close by without a trailer for 200$. It is cat rigged in beaiutiful shape with what looks like a nice sail from the pictures. I may buy it too and then sell the one that I like the least. I am 6 foot 250'ish, so the little boats may not work very well for me very well, but I suspect both boats will bring more in the spring if I don't like them.
Thanks again for the help!
