I don’t have a tutorial to post today, but as Jen mentioned before we’ve recently joined forces with Anna Griffin &Blend Fabrics on their design team.  I love so many of the fabrics available and am so excited to showcase some of their best!  (check out FB here for some fun ideas!)

Learn to Sew

Learn to Sew

Whenever I tell people that I sew, I get one of the following reactions: they either look at me blankly, or they look at me with awe, and say that they could never do that.  Occasionally (ok, not very often) they might sew too and we instantly bond. 🙂 Why is this?  It wasn’t too(…)
