Trixi’s Tool Recommendation

Wax/Chinagraph pencil.  This pencil is great for drawing on the felt and will easily rub off when you’re finished. I’m getting one to try it out!


My Resource Recommendation

sewing-school book

The Sewing School Book by Amie Petronis Plumley and Andria Lisle – A great book for any child looking to get into hand sewing. You can check it out on Amazon or if you live in Australia I recommend checking out Book Depository.

Thanks for listening and happy sewing,

Domenica ?
