All Prints
I have a fun giveaway today! My friend Shannon from Little Luvins has teamed up with her sister Colleen to create a line of punny prints with sewing themes in their new shop, Boo in Stitches! You can read more about their story here. They were kind enough to send me one of each of the prints (I couldn’t choose just one!!), and we had some fun setting them up in various fitting arrangements around the studio.

I actually laughed out loud when I saw this one, because it’s So. True. The seam ripper is never around when you need it. Looks just right above this sewing table, wouldn’t you say?
