Coffee Mug DIY

Roaming through the aisles of Michaels is like heaven for a crafter. Some times I go just to see what’s new. And in one of those trips I saw some super cute decals from Recollections. They are vinyls decals for mugs, water bottles, thermos, glasses, or whatever you’ll like. I figured I’d pick one up…

Sew Sampler May 2017
