Nikki’s 2018 Make Nine

      10 Comments on Nikki’s 2018 Make Nine

I have not really made any sewing/making resolutions before, but this year I thought I would try to make myself a realistic challenge of nine items to create before the end of the year.

Something that can be dressed up for those occasions that need it, or dressed down a bit. Nikki, Philip and I are travelling straight up to Scotland after the funeral so having a multi function outfit is… Read more »
