Book Review: Handmade Bags in Natural Fabrics

My son was in need of a new bag to carry his books in, so I made him the large sized shoulder bag, with a short strap, so he could hold it in his hand.

He loves it!

A Very Merry Bra Making with Madalynne

There have been a few snowflakes this season, but just a coating here and there that didn’t ‘stick’ around for too long. Philly’s first true snowfall happened last Saturday, December 9th, at the last workshop of 2017. I know it sounds cliche, but it truly was the best (and merriest) way to close out yet…
