Creating My Own Patterns for the First Time EVER!

I am a LARPer, and for those of you who do not know what that means, LARPing is an acronym for Live Action Roleplay. One weekend a month, I run around the woods with a bunch of friends and dress up like a beautiful fairy princess (because if you’re going to do it, do it with glitter and jewels). 948 more words
