DIY leather pendants for Curbly

Someone please tell me how it’s almost the end of August? That can’t be right. The first cherry blossoms have bloomed in our backyard and the weather’s getting warmer every day… but surely it was the middle of winter only last week?!

Make and Tell prints now on fabric!

I don’t think I’ve ever said this out loud before, but it’s my dream to one day design patterns for a living. There’s something about putting even just that sentence out into the world that’s kind of scary – like somehow by saying it I’m going to jinx myself and this big, crazy goal of
