I wanted to share this page today because last Sunday was our Church of Craft meeting and we were all talking about making holiday gifts and how we all wanted to make our own gifts but time tends to slip away and well then off to the mall we go! So I thought I'd post a little help on designing, which is of course is the first step. This Singer book is packed full of great info for sewing and designing, truly an asset for the DIY-er.
So now people is the time to get a plan together. That's not to say I have my plan together yet, but I am working on it.
Which brings me to today's question, that if you leave an answer in today's s comment section you will be entered to win a copy of any Quayside Publishing Group's craft titles!!!! A gift for you, and you know you will love it because you get to pick it!
