Question
Just a reminder that I asked if anyone knows if I need to be specific with the fabric I use for sewing my Muslin as it’s the first time doing one I wasn’t sure if my fabric content needed to match the fabric I’m using for my end result? Do get in touch if you are into sewing I’d love to hear from you.

Thank you all again for watching I love spending a bit of time with you and hope you enjoyed the show. See you in two weeks for another episode. x

Hey Peeps, I’m back😀
So I did plan on an episode last week and after filming I went Christmas shopping and when I got back I sorted through my files on the pc and deleted the wrong one. Shame on me for foolishly cleaning out my Rubbish bin before I realised. So I had to wait for the weekend to come along again with the days getting dark early I’ve got a light window to make a date with lol!
So here we are Episode 14… Better late than never😉
