Charmed I'm Sure!

 

Adding a touch of charm to your favorite handbag, or your kids backpack is made even better when it’s made-by-you! Pairing a fun animal design with EverSewn cork fabric will give you the durability and look of leather, but in an animal/environmentally friendly fabric with lots color choices!

Whether you’re sewing with a machine for the first time, or one thousandth time, or even hand stitching side-by-side with your little one. It’s about the experience of creating something with your own two hands that matters most.
