Acorn Trail organic cottons

Have a look at this utterly charming new collection from Birch fabrics.


Made from 100% Organically grown cotton, these fabrics are delightful to the touch and better for the earth. The prints feature florals, trees, and adorable woodland creatures.


Perhaps the best part - the collection includes a panel to make a doll and 3 soft friends! How many times have you wished the sweet characters in a beautiful print would step off the fabric? Well, now they can! Just cut, sew around the outlines, and stuff! 


PLUS! Several of the prints are available as cotton knits! Soft and comfy for all kinds of apparel sewing. 



Our Fabulous Fall Sale continues! Stop by today and get at least 20% every fabric in the store!
