Such a great Sew!

The Moon River is such a great sew! The functionality of the little purse is top notch! It’s easy to use whatever fabrics your machine can handle and the pattern lends itself easily to fit your needs for additional details not included but cheered for when you can make it happen for yourself. It’s a great sew for up-cycling fabrics too.

Fun make and a cute bag

I made this during the holiday sewalong and it’s an easy bag to make. Very versatile! It can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on materials used. The instructions are clear, and Kathy’s tutorial is easy to follow. It’s a great little bag!
