DIY Knee Patch Tights

DIY knee patch tights

Oh she is just PRECIOUS. where is that dress from? And that blanket is so sweet

Hi Kim! The dress is a (fantastic) thrift store find, and the blanket is a old family quilt we had restored from her great great great grandmother Elizabeth she’s named after 🙂
