Simply Lovely

At first glance, the instructions looked foreboding ... but once I got through the cutting and began the piecing, everything came together smoothly and I love my end result.

Great Sewing Experience

This pattern is very detailed with tips which made it go together very nicely. I used soft’n’stable in my bag and found it a very easy alternative. I wouldn’t hesitate making another one.
