These adorable DIY kits are all designed by Berene herself, hand cut, and packed with the help of some very supportive friends and family. Due to my crazy travel schedule these days, I wasn’t able to try out one of the kits myself, but instead I enlisted the help of one of my good friends, who also happens to be a new mom, and has just gotten her first sewing machine.

Laura graciously agreed to give one of these kits a go and document her experience. I was both excited and nervous to have the project of making Happy Sew Lucky’s Minky Cat.
