    This is perfect!! Where did you get the fabric? Any chance you sell them made or as a kit?

    Hello. I work in a mom and pop quilt shop in a small town. Would it be possible to include your pattern/ instructions on the cute duffle bag in kits? We would not sell your pattern…only include it in our kits that would include the supplies to make it. We would give you all the credits and reference your blog/channel.
