I am in the love camp (much more fun than hating!) and my PDF printouts were taking over the flat – seriously – so I have come up with an efficient, time and room saving way of storing them. Call it the admin in me.
Sian of Kittenish Behaviour came up with a new challenge on her Youtube channel called the KP Pattern Swap. And I think it is fab!
What I like to use changes constantly but for now I thought I would discuss what I like to use to help give a professional finish to my garments.
