"This project was engrossing, fun, clearly instructed, and relatively easy to replicate. I love what I made! Thanks Lola for giving me a new way to express my creativity. I love art, but I could never draw very well. I also love sewing. This combines them both so well, I can't imagine not doing this all the time."
