    Oohh thanks for the info! I didn't grow up with sewing per se. I actually just stumbled upon it a few years ago when I became pregnant with my first little boy. I had the urge to create and I wanted my children to cherish the home goodies I would make them through the years. Your tutorials will def. help me in my sewing and dreams of opening a small shop. Thanks!!
