I just love the creativity of everyone in the Get Creative with Loopy Facebook Group. Isn't Rita's coat fabulous, it was made by the lovely Nicola. I think that Rita must be the best dressed dog is South Yorkshire! I might have to think about Finley's wardrobe if they are going to meet up some time.
In Video Tips
In this week's video, I share a tip that is helpful for mending as well as making clothes and quilts. If you are hand stitching a long stretch, then this is a useful reminder.
