So i thought i would take what she described “a thin pencil case” and interoperate that into cuteness and a tutorial for said cuteness. It’s useful too because this pencil case fits a few […]

Fiona Folding Wallet by CloBird Designs a review

Karis from CloBird Designs and i have done a Pattern swap. I love that i know awesome designers! I’ve been seeing the Fiona folding wallet all over the internet sewing sites and groups!
