I love original designs and colors when it comes to clothing. I do not want my children in clothing that have cartoon characters on them or things that every other little girl will be in. Not saying they aren't, I would just prefer something a bit more original.
That being said.... I can't sew.
Nope.. in fact, I can sew in a button, I can cross-stitch, I can make a costume that will only last one night... but I can't figure out how to use my sewing machine.
Then came along Courtney at Youcanmakethis.com, she showed me her site, and then showed me the videos they have and I could feel the confidence seeping in! I watched videos, read instructions and then fell in love with this concept. I plan on making a tie for little Grady (Gretchen's son), aprons for me and tons of Yule gifts.
