Deuce Cities Henhouse

A few posts ago I told you how I made some super delicious cupcakes for my lady Valeria's baby shower. Now that the shower is over it is safe for me to share with you the baby sling that I made for her.I had a ton of fabric left over from when I made Elsa's crib bumpers and the fabric is just too pretty to not use again so I resurrected the Pop Daisy fabric out of my fabric box and got to it.First READ MORE
