How'd you Like our April Fools?

Img_7948_medium

For anyone who was on the site yesterday you may have seen our April Fools featured project Fabric Scrap Quilt ReStyle

For anyone who doesn’t have the background on this, last July we posted up the Fabric scrap quilt to less than rave reviews. This was a throwback for anyone who was on the site back then and we think a pretty silly one, though once we took the pictures it did look kinda rad (aside from not covering the back of me AT ALL)

Hope everyone had a good April fools and a great spring!

Listening to some of your feedback, we have decided to revise the Resource Map a bit, in order fully utilize its incredible potential.
