Measure twice, cut once

A week and a half ago I got a custom order on Etsy for five holiday pillows. No problem! I was psyched as it was my largest custom order to date. I carefully calculated the fabric and had just enough to get them done. You know those handy dandy rulers that have an inch marked…

Christmas Table Runner

I spent most of yesterday working on Thanksgiving table runners since I had sold 3 of the 4 I had made at craft shows and the last on Etsy yesterday. But, I also managed to finish this one that I had started last weekend and get it added to Etsy. The fabric is from Westminster…
