The people have spoken – I got a couple of requests for alternate sizes for X Plus blocks, so here you go. I’ve done an additional set of templates for both 3″ and 6″ blocks in the same document for convenience. Here’s the button. Clicky clicky! It’s free!
My mom and I are doing a sew along together on the cargo duffle pattern by NoodleHead, free on the Kaufman website. Mom is much further along than I am. Here’s hers. She basically just needs to put the snaps on at this point. I helped her choose the fabric. You can tell. Mine’s in […]
