Fab Fabrics: Moxie’s Vintage Fabric Stash
It’s no secret that I love sewing with vintage fabric. Linens and remnants from back in the day just feel like they have a story attached to them. Not only are you giving something old a brand new life, you get to add to its history.
Sometimes it’s a bit tricky to track down a good variety of vintage fabric, but Megan over at Moxie makes it a bit easier with her fantastical selection of vintage fabrics!
Moxie has a fantastical selection of vintage prints, from florals to stripes to polkadots. Confession: I’m sort of a sucker for polkadots and am totally coveting this blue 60′s polkadot sateen cotton!
As usual, my first instinct is a skirt. Maybe this simple ruffle skirt from The Long Thread? It looks like a lot of Megan’s fabrics are sturdy, too, which would make them great for projects like pillows or maybe reupholstering a worn out chair cushion or two!
