Happy Wednesday, makers! Are you all getting excited for black Friday sewing sales?! I know I am 🙂 I have already seen a few open up and I expect many more over the weekend. In addition to excitement for new sewing patterns and fabric, I’ve got my December Holiday schedule almost planned out completely and it is looking like fun! Now I just have to whip up party dresses for the occasions! Check out this post from Rachel at House of Pinheiro for some inspiration.
