A Fall Mood


Since Fall is almost here – I had to find fabrics for my collection.  I found canvas fabrics on sale at 50% off the regular price while shopping at my local JoAnn Fabric Store.  My favorite color for the fall and winter season is  “you guessed it…” brown.   Black and greys are every girls staple color too, but…
