Great seller, nice fabrics, clear instructions

Was a gift for my crafty mum and she loved it!

Can't wait to commence this project, beautiful fabrics, clear instructions and a wonderful way to relax and enjoy me time.

The materials in the kit were a lovely mixture of patterns. The kit well packaged to be able to work out the various components - and with clear instructions. I’m looking forward to making the bag.

Sorry did not mean to give it one star. To be truthful I was a bit disappointed in the material used in these products. The cotton was very thin and it just felt a bit on the cheaper side. I do not mean to offend you. I have travelled around Japan and collected quite a bit of fabric which are better printed and the weaving of the cotton somewhat denser.
