As you saw in the picture above, the framelits for this bundle contain 3 nesting frames, and 
they aren't like anything we already have!  The three of them nest together, AND they have a double row of stitching... so cool! The blade cuts between the two rows, so there is stitching on both the layering piece, and the window piece! It's really so fun!
