It seems to be a good little project to use up some smaller pieces of fabric and have fun little accessories afterwards. I'm pretty new to sewing, so I appreciated the explanations that Lesley gave for the different stitches and Lesley's personality really brought the viewing experience to a new level which was calming and more engaging. Thank you :)
