{Fabric~Fabric~Fabric!}

I went shopping yesterday with Kara. Now I'm all stocked up with fabric to make some really rockin' skirts!! Thanks Kara for all the help picking out fabric:) McKell and Sara, thanks for being so patient with us!!

I am loving all the fun stuff I've got to work with now. If you see anything you like you'd better get your size to me and specify which one you want!!

First thing ya gotta do when sewing is shrink the fabric. This was right before the pile headed to the washer. Ended up making 2 washer loads!

And this was the disaster my sewing desk was in today. To the right is the stack I have to get sewed up before I start on the pile I just bought. Or at least I should do them first:) No promises though.

Okay... second picture... olive green with medallions... size {mumblemumble} Okay, maybe I'll just email you my size! No rush or anything.

Is it heavy fabric?

Okay, now I've looked again and I like all of the ones in the first picture too.

Oh great,I can't decide.

Surprise me.

I like the heavier (thicker) fabric for skirts.
