Be sure you have the purple blade, Terial Magic, and we can walk you through how to get a professional cut each time. Don't have any hangups about whether or not you can do this - it is simple, straight line sewing. Don't have a Scan N Cut? Scissors will work, too.

This is fun for a grandchild's room, to decorate your home for October, to donate as a prize, give as a gift, or put on your porch to fend off the real bats!
