While there’s bits of embroidery thread all over my house, I’m popping in to write a quick post about what I’ve made the past few weeks from my Ottobre subscription that my husband so thoughtfully got me for Christmas. Here are my January-February Ottobre makes.
When I had my baby girl last year, I knew that Ottobre would be high on my wish list of pattern subscriptions.
