~ Sew Busy ~




I was in a strange mood on the weekend and felt like doing some more crafting [ha ha]. So my weekend was spent teaching myself some more sewing techniques and learning how to make patterns. I am getting there slowly. I made these cute aprons on Saturday. They are for my daughter whom is always making a mess in the kitchen.
