Remember how I went to the Martha Stewart Show 2 weeks ago?  Well, what you DIDN’T know is that right afterwards, I headed right back to Brooklyn to tape a How-Tuesday video with the cool kids at Etsy.  The topic was DIY weddings featuring fabric, and I showed how to make an embroidered drawstring bag.  Check it out if you’re interested.
