Printed Starch Fabric Monogram Book (Tutorial)- Guest Post
Hi, I’m Aimee and I have too many craft books. I’ve declared 2012 to be my Year of the Craft, and I’m on a mission to use one craft book a week and blog about it at Suzy Cucumber until I run out or completely burn out. I have more than 200 craft books and pamphlets so I should be at it for awhile.
