Husbands grow up so fast don’t they? Well, my wonderful hubby has grown out of a suit jacket and I am so very excited to use it for something awesome! I have been pondering and researching what to do for a couple of months now and still haven’t made up my mind. So, help me decide!

Other ideas I have that I am unable to find tutorials on at the moment are a pillow, laptop case, messenger bag, skirt, dress….
