Skirting the Issue {or pretty fabric!}

Are you all participating in Skirting the Issue? The beyond talented ladies at Simple Simon & Company have charged their readers with giving back using their talents. The goal is to sew 100 skirts for foster girls and have them donate by August 10 {in time for the new school year}.

I recently purchased at Groupon to Madtosh Crafts. They are a new store in town that is mostly focused on beautiful yarn. They do have a fun little stash of fabric. Its the only place that I've been able to locally find Riley Blake's Chevrons. I may or may not have done a little happy dance.

Ok...back to the point of this post. I used my Groupon to buy a butt load of fabric. Oh, the pretty fabric!  I'm excited to have been able to stretch the amount of fabric I could buy because of the Groupon. 

I'm thrilled to get sewing. Now all I have to do is find myself some elastic.

Go find out more about Skirting the Issue and get sewing! You can mail the skirts you make to the organizations the Simple Simon & Co girls are working with or donate locally. If you're in the DFW area, skirts can be donated to ACH Child and Family Services. They'll be added to the clothes closet on site. Any kiddo can go in there whenever they need new clothes!
