Sewing Lingerie

Hello Califabrics blog readers (and anyone else who's stumbled upon this blog)! How are you doing today? I'm back with a post about underthings. Woo hoo!

The Katie Kimono

Hey Everybody! How are you all doing out there? I'm doing well, but I have to admit, I'm feeling a bit nervous as I write this. I mean, I'm blogging on someone else's blog, and not just anyone's blog, a fabric store's blog! Eeeeep! How cool is this? Anyway, I better get on with it, before the boss catches me gossiping by the water cooler. When I was shopping on the CaliFabrics ...
