This such an awesome collection. I sewed a group of felt monsters for my friend once and they are still my favorite. I sort of wish I had kept them...

The patterns available to use are creative and have a wide range of variety. I have sewn the one hour bag and it is quick and simple. I would sew a lining in the next one I make for more durability. If you need a quick bag for everyday use, this is a bag I would suggest making.
