Great quick makes

This books has great items that are easy to make as gifts or for yourself. I bought it to make the fabric bins. Now I also want to make to the "jewelry caddy" for my portable sewing notions!

Great!

Have made the toe and the smaller zippered bag! Directions are great though a bit abbreviated it seems. The book was not as big as past books from her series. will do more of the projects soon.
