You Can Use Your Scrap Yarn!
Just like me, I’m sure you have a ton of scrap yarn left over from past projects to use for this project! I decided to use Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice because of the choice of colors and the durability of the yarn!
I usually use Vanna’s Choice because for me it’s because the yarn has to be able to handle and make it through the use of three kids!
