I recently finished Milo for Maus, and we definitely have a winner here!
With winter quickly approaching I wanted an extra layer that would keep her warm, yet not overheat her when she is indoors. A vest was the perfect midway point, keeping […]
If you were to go and buy a cashmere sweater in a high-end store it would likely cost round about $100 at minimum. One for you, that you would be able to wear for years. If you were to buy one for a child it would likely cost you nearly as much and you may […]
