Let’s take a little break from sewing, today, shall we? It’s Christmas time! So, today, let me show you how I “grew” my own artificial tree this year.
This is the story of a mom and two boys that seemed to loose their mittens every day. One day the mom said, “Enough! You have school in an hour, and I am not going to be ‘that mom’ that never sends their kids proper outerwear! I know how to sew! I can fix this, ONCE AND FOR ALL!” Read more
