My First Sewing Pattern

My First Sewing Pattern

For the past two years I have had an item on my to-do list that never gets checked off.  That item is: create a PDF sewing pattern. As of today, that item is now checked off!  After months (er…okay…years) of percolating I finally took the plunge and just did it!  It was perhaps just a…

Capes for Kids
