This is a really nice collection, especially for Beginners. Ive worked up a couple of the cocoons already and that embedded video pretty much explains away the mysteries of shaping the bag part. As for the hats, Ive worked several of them up as well, but there were a few that were new to me. Kudos for the hard work assembling this collection!
