Nan Event Fabric Inspiration Trims

Here are tons of suggestions for the Kelly Tote class! Call or e-mail me for pricing.

If you place your order ahead of time I can send you a PayPal invoice and have your fabric ready when you come to class. Otherwise you will have to stop down ahead of time and pick up your goodies!

Our recommendation is to use two to three fabrics (inside, outside and pockets) depending on how crazy you want to get with this!

Have fun choosing!

Luna Bag
Pack this tote with your PD (depending on what day of the week it is!), kindle and iPad and head down to Luna for a morning of people watching and indulgence.
