Six Great Sewing and Craft Ideas
Some of the great sewing or craft ideas I read about this week, not in any particular order.
I must say Spring is featuring heavily everywhere and I can tell most peeps are over winter. What is surprising is the number of baby clothes (ages 1 -5) posts. Seems with the coming of Spring many are going all gogo gaga over baby clothing and pics.
It’s just an observation!
While on the topic of babies here is my first pick from this weeks reading. I really do love this bubble romper from over at Make it and Love it
