Two sisters whom help us out a great deal at The Calico Horse designed this pattern. They love working with Moda Charms and are always creating new and fun designs. The sisters had such fun with this wreath we wanted to share it. This is the first time our shop The Calico Horse has been on Moda Bake Shop and we feel quite honored.
