What I Made: Baby Undies

About the book of the week.

I've gotten a couple of emails saying why I don't summarize the books of the week. Honestly I didn't think this was such an issue. I'm just posting one of the books that we read a week. It will take the fun away if you already know what the book is about if I spoil it here. What I do instead NOW is link where you can find the book.

I'm not getting paid to do anything on my blog, I do this just because I like to. I guess I'm skipping the book of the week this week.

It will resume again next week guys!

New Series

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Hey everyone! I wanted to add something new to the blog. Something called "tricky sewing words." Were I explain what certain words mean in the fashion/sewing industry.

I hope you enjoy this series, and I will be presenting it next week.
