I realized I left out an important element when I wrote up my Travel Cosmetics Case Tutorial a few weeks back- ideas for fabric combinations! I was asked to make a custom case for a client, so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to suggest some great fabrics!  DuckaDilly sponsored my tutorial, so […]
