I had the pleasure of testing this pattern for The Material Girlfriends.
With the awesome easy to follow instructions and many, many diagrams this pattern goes together very quickly and easy.
Love The Material Girlfriends and their beautiful new lime of batiks from Marcus Fabrics.

I received my first month of the kit! Hooray! The intro, page 1, suggests a website to visit for tips and instructions. I get a message that the link can't find the server. Is there another page to go to?
