    Heat bond makes sewing life “sew” much easier. I love making matching pj’s and stuffed animals for the grand babies. You can never have enough heat bond.

    I really like all the velvet fabric designs this year and how it adds pop to fashion. I love wear dresses, so as I attend my office holiday party, church service and family celebration, I plan to sew velvet flowing dresses with bows.
