The Calvin Top

Big news – a new True Bias pattern dropped yesterday!! If you haven’t already seen it, take a quick minute to go check it out.

Time for another Recap post! This two month interval was filled with collaborations – and for this reason, I didn’t sew much from my stash.

See all the things I came up with in March and April 🙂
