Hi Everyone,

The kids are out of school, lots of backyard bbq and Summer parties, now is a great time to spruce up the bathroom and be ready for the parade of people using your guest bathroom.

I’m Maggie to share a quick tutorial using fabric and off course your Cricut. I purchased a trio of frames from Salvation Army the size fits my bathroom perfectly. This trio of frame is to match the new curtains I’ve created you can find the steps in Scrap n Art Magazine.
