Fall is nigh!

Mucho Molas Nouveau

My Molas Nouveau proved so popular that I took your challenge and made some more.

As with the previous set, these molas can be sewn as patches with and without fringe. However, I added some additional stitch sequencing to sew in a lining, while still in the hoop, for making bags or if you just want to cover the backside for other uses

I’ve also added files of just the center motifs that you can sew onto other projects, not my patches.

Instructions include how to make the patches avec and sans fringe and how to make the bags avec and sans a zipper closure.
