Use Every Scrap and make it Count.

Use Every Scrap and make it Count Cute. I have several odds and ends of fabric that aren’t big enough to make aprons but may be useful else where.. I want to stick with the home/entertaining theme so I whipped these up. There is a Turquoise and brown Set as well as a Polka Dot … Continue reading
