I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to finally share this with you.
I wrote a book! A real book! And it is everything I hoped for and so much more!!
I have been dreaming for a few years about writing a pattern book and I made the decision 12 months ago to turn that dream into a reality and finally I can share with you all of my hard work.
Nothing is more exciting than travelling, whether it be a weekend away with friends or a long awaited overseas trip.
The Escape Travel Set is designed to inspire your handmade luggage and have you all organised so you can enjoy your adventures.
