With Kimberbell's easy fringe technique, a fuzzy mane of thread encircles the little lion's head. The design comes in both 4"x4"and 5"x7" sizes with two different expressions. We know you will love stitching both, and "that's no lion."

Shelby: (August)  Modern Patchwork Zipper Pouch. The combination of a simple patchwork strip with contemporary technique like quilting in-the-hoop, gives the zipper pouch a subtle sophistication in all four sizes.  Just right for sewing notions, makeup, and other essentials.  The zipper pouch is fully lined with no raw edges or stabilizer showing. Requires a 5" x 7" embroidery hoop.

Crosshatch quilting and optional ribbon loops for hanging complete the mini quilt in all five sizes.
