Mulari is a nationally recognized sewing enthusiast, instructor and author from Aurora and has previously created Legacy Take & Create art kits, including Make Your Own Treasure Bag kits and Three Button Bowl kits.  She is eager to encourage anyone to sew – the pouch sewing project could be the beginning of a new hobby!
