Le rendu est vraiment top ! En plus il y a un vidéo youtube pour nous aider. Une belle manière de passer nos tissus tissés.

What can I say, I love… love… LOVE ❤️
Easy to make, perfect fit & looks great!
You guys nailed it again.

Easy, quick and cute

This project can be done quickly and the result is very cute!

Maybe it's just me that had trouble with the belt loops to fit the sash through, but I found them a bit short so I made them longer. No big deal, still worth 5 stars!
