My Sewing Drawer...

Confessions of a Teenage Fabricholic!:) All right, I am not THAT bad, but really, girls, we do have a soft spot for cute fabric, right? That's why, I shope at Birch, a sweet fabric shop full of modern and chic fabrics! (Although expensive;) I do save at least $20 of my cleaning money to buy things, and you know what I buy? Fabric! (and cardmaking stuff of course:) Usually, I do not buy modern prints, but Birch's fabric is just too irrisistable. This is my sewing drawer! *Gasp* Yes, I actually did orginized it!!! And when I did, I had just a little more space to buy some more fabric! (But you know, you always have just a little more space for those cute fabrics, right?:) Here's what I bought from Birch:

I love these greens, and the the grey serves a good accent colour!
Olive green...

I think I might make a headband out of this fabric (directly above) for the band, and the green and grey for the flower.

I have also had my eye one this one ever since we stepped into the shop:


Wouldn't it be a lovely skirt? *Sigh* Too bad I do not know how to sew and too bad I did not purchase a $9.50 yard.

This fabric, I absolutely love. And just as I was about to make my purchases I looked at it and absolutely fell for it! It is so whimsically (with the sparkles), and vintagey! I have to make something very special out of it. It was $15.00 a yard, so I just had to purchase half a yard!:)
My first visit (not my very first) to Birch's new store, I bought these:
Sew summery, right?:)
And this:
I made flowers out of these. You can find the tutorial here:http://mariemadelinestudio.typepad.com/mariemadeline_studio/2009/09/festive-posies.html (basic flower, I do 6 petals)
and here: Simple Delights (This is the one with the covered buttons)
Those flowers are really popular around here!:)
Love from your sewing friend,

  8. Dearest Rachel,
    Of course I will pray for you! I am so sorry that you did not feel very well during your birthday! I was thinking of you yesterday! When I turned your age, I had the stomach flu! It was horrible, so I kind of know how you feel:)
    Keeping you in my prayers, dear friend!
    Love always,
    Grace
