It is a very clever way of recycling measuring tapes while showing people there is a seamstress living in the house.
Seamstresses make so many home decor items such as drapes, sofa covers, pillows, and quilts. So it is obvious that we would enjoy a wide variety of things to spruce up the room that relates to quilting and sewing. Here are a few gift ideas that would make great Valentine’s Day gifts.
