  • Love your fabulous bag Angela! You used one of my all time favorite feet to stitch the vinyl. I truly think everyone should own this foot as it will come in handy for a variety of “sticky” situations.

  • I wanted to let you know that I reduced the pattern down in scale and made one for my dollhouse using fray check to stop the raveling. I used silk sewing thread for the embroidery. Now all my miniature club members want me to make them one. They are going to have to do some heavy talking!
