25 Free Skirt Tutorials Monday Motivation

Welcome back to Monday Motivation the weekly round up of fab free patterns and tutorials from across the web!

This week is a little different as lives are changing with schools and businesses closing or moving online to help with containment of  COVID-19. For at least the next two weeks our family will all be home, we will need to find ways to make the time a little less stressed. Sewing is definitely one way to reduce stress and make the days more pleasant while helping our family, friends, and neighbors stay well.

It is important to Kim and I to keep you happy and filled with incredible resources during this time.
