Hi everyone!

This is our first post for one of our own projects, and we hope you like it. As always, we'd love to see what your finished product looks like so if you've had a go at making it, please share it on our wall for everyone to see!

This is a really easy project, no putting in zips and if you don’t feel confident to sew buttonholes, you don’t have to as the back can be left or Velcro added to secure. A great project for beginners to get used to their sewing machines!

Take a look at the pictures below if you need some extra help. Any problems or questions, drop us a comment or message!
