  • Unkown December 26, 2019, 3:31 pm

    I believe these are very good crafts but I noticed that just a few of them were excessive and could be bought at a store, therefore making them something unneccesary to have to make yourself. I also noticed that these are supposed to be easy but some are not easy. But I got a few good ideas so I will thank you for those.

  • Jo Mower February 29, 2020, 6:37 pm

    The list had very good ideas for sewing. Six of them will keep me busy. Thank You.
