KCW – Day 7

All this past week I have been participating in Kids Clothes Week – the challenge is to sew for your kids, for at least one hour per day, every day, for a whole week! And, I made it! Today, I made a t-shirt for Mathilda. We are heading towards winter, and she’s grown so much … [Read more…]

Chasing Bubbles – My Signature Style
