It's really feeling like FALL!

I'm so excited that today finally feels like fall! Even though it's raining like crazy outside, I am welcoming the cooler temperatures with open arms. The many many days of 90 + degrees this summer were really getting old. Yesterday I broke out the hot tea, socks, and long sleeves! I even started thinking about my flannel shirts that I had packed up for summer. I think today I will create a few items with a fall feel to them. Leaves are a favorite of mine and I hope to work them into some upcoming designs!

I am really loving dyeing my own fabric. I love the freedom to create all sorts of new colors that I longed for. I still have some organic cotton fabric that I bought pre-dyed. All of the organic cotton fabric I have has been manufactured in the USA. I feel that it's really important to know where your fabric is coming from and that those who made it were not harmed or paid unfairly in the process. I've been researching more about fair trade fabric and where I can get it. This has not been an easy task! Maybe I'm not very trusting, but unless it is fair trade certified or made in the USA I tend to stay away. Is all fabric made in the USA fair trade? Hmm...this is something I wonder about too. Any thoughts?
