Sewing & Design Projects

Blog, She Wrote: Sewing & Design Projects

Welcome to a collection of Rebecca’s Sewing & Design Projects. This page is always being added to, so if you don’t see a link to a project, it’s on the way. Check back for more projects. She is a maker. So, the list will get longer as I finish the blog posts!
