Our fabrics are the cover garments of Sew Magazine

Do you like this stunning top on the cover of the February issue of Britain’s Sew Magazine? We adore it and it was made with our birch flag fabric. We teamed up with Sew Magazine and sponsored two organic birch fabrics that were used for cover garments and we couldn’t be happier. Both the peplum top and the dress look amazing.

birch sewing tutorials for cheater fabrics

If you like sewing you should definitely have a look at the birch blog.

Today we want to show you some great examples of what to do with cheater fabrics. You can click on the picture below to get to the tutorials on the birch blog.
