Happy December everyone! The beginning of the month means that it is time to show you what I have been making over on the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network. This month I have made the Sew Over It Tulip Skirt. Rather than choose something smart and fancy for the Festive season, I opted for a skirt that… Continue reading A Winter Floral Sew Over It Tulip Skirt
The latest release from The Avid Seamstress is another winner.
