I finally completed one of the longest standing projects in my WIP sewing closet. It’s a messy closet full of ‘That seems like a great idea! I will totally do that’ projects.

This one is rather near and dear to my heart because it’s full of memories! I don’t know about you, but I have a ton of nerdy t-shirts that I love.
