Delicious Fabric for Shoe Box Dresses!

Can fabric be delicious?  Well, if it could this fabric would be on the desert bar.  It is just lovely in pattern, color and texture.  I just couldn't keep it to myself, I had to let you all see it!  I can't wait to cut into it to make some dresses and skirts for shoe box girls.  But first I want to thank my generous benefactor:  Robin of Red Thread Stitches.

A while back my friend, Kristy, from Hopeful Threads told me about her friend's Etsy shop sale and that she was sponsoring a giveaway of a $25 shopping spree to her shop.  After looking at her lovely
fabric I was in and I entered the giveaway.  And excitedly I won!  But the prize got even better.

I have a special box in mind for this piece -- keep a watch out for it, I'll share it, I promise.

Once Robin found out I sewed dresses for girls in need she decided to search thru her stash and send me extra!  And boy did she send extra -- such a generous box of fabric I received.  I haven't measured it but I think there is between 15 and 20 yards.

Some little girl will have a new friend on her hemline.

If you are in the market for reasonably priced, high quality fabric, check out her Etsy shop: Red Thread Stitches.   And, oh my, Robin sews the most amazing Asian inspired clothing for little girls.  If you have a minute check out these pictures on her Facebook page or on her blog,  Red Thread Stitches Boutique.  I am inspired to up my game on my dresses. Now if I can only find the confidence to combine fabrics!

Happy Packing!
