Hello and Hello!

Do you like to sew or make things from scratch? I do! I also like to learn new things. Most of my spare time this summer was spent learning how to sew.

Here's more a link to more of my sewing adventures on Pinterest

I've also been trying my hand at designing sewn toy patterns.

I'll let you know how it turns out.

Wishing you a creative week!

Best thoughts,
