I figure it will make a lovely dead-of-winter project for January and a lovely post-holiday present for myself for once. Plus, it would be great to make use of scrap fabrics. […]

FOTD: IKEA Fabrics

I always forget myself. But IKEA always has a wonderful selection of beautiful prints reminiscent of Kokka Fabrics, Japan. And for very […]
