I liked the stripes, but it needed something to jazz it up. If you want to make one, here's what you do:  Materials: Tote Bag 3 Designs of Fabric Sewing Machine Needle and Thread Liquid Stitch … [Read more...]

I bought one for the t-shirt and one to cut up for embellishments. Materials … [Read more...]
