I thought it would be the perfect time to actually make the laptop bag I wanted for quite some time. Right after I received the colorful-and-oh-so-awesome fabrics from designer Jessica Jones, I knew I had to use them for this project, her fabrics are one of my top favorites, so you should check them out! Actually it was so hard for me to pick just one fabric, I used 2 different ones, one for the front and one for the back!
Upcycled Shirts to Baby Bibs When my son was born, I had the biggest distaste for baby bibs. I hated how “babyish” they looked, yet I knew how functional they were for drool, food, etc… So, I came up with an alternative.
