Pretty girly-girl bag

I had to laugh when Lisa checked a book out of the library about springtime felt projects – hint hint!! She’s obviously caught on to the fact that I enjoy making stuff … So after a little perusal of the book, we found a cute little felt bag.

You can find “boudin blanc” and “boudin noir” and now, at least in our household, you can find “boudin bleu”!… Continue reading The “Boudin Bleu”
