I recently achieved something I've only ever dreamed of....I managed to sew up one of my fabric strike offs FOR a pattern test!

Secondly, it means less work for you and more summery fun for your little girl!

There is also an "outside the box" (for me)… Continue reading Testing, testing. 2 new tops from Ellie & Mac = something for everyone!
