I was pretty floored when I saw both of our guest posters projects today. They both took mediums (stretch lace and elastic) that I think many people wouldn’t know where to start with, and made amazing things. I can’t wait to see more details about Jodi’s lovely stretch lace cardigan at Sew Fearless (so pretty!)
