New Leaf Folding Totes

Published by under Sewing

I’m terrible about gifts. Well intentioned. But I’m eternally optimistic about how much time I have left until Hanukah/Christmas/birthday/etc. So it’s only natural that I ended up finishing my mom’s holiday gift this February. I wanted to make her something because while I make plenty of stuff for people, she never seems to get any […]
