Fan Feature: Margy from Fool 4 Fabric.

Meet Margy from the blog Fool 4 Fabric: 
She has been sewing for 65+ years and is now enjoying life and blogging about her creations. 
Margy caught our eye with her fun style and her passion for sewing. 
 When we asked her to be a guest blogger she happily accepted and whipped something up 
from Fabric Mart fabric. We just love seeing projects made from our fabric! 
So, here's Margy!
"One of my favorite parts of travel is putting together a travel wardrobe. For an upcoming trip to Sicily, I am planning combinations of my favorite black and white, with a little touch of red. It will be quite warm in Sicily in September, so I am searching my fabric stash for lightweight and wrinkle-resistant fabrics. 
  I chose a Dana Buchman ikat print in black and white from Fabric Mart. I made a scarf/bandana out of it for a trip to Ethiopia last January...talk about hot! I was amazed that this fabric was lightweight, cool and never wrinkled. So...I made a shirt from B5526, a TNT (tried and true) pattern, using View C, but changing it up a lot, as I always do! 
 I added some gathered pockets, (you can never have too many pockets when traveling!) and made a gathered ruffle to use instead of a collar. I have already worn this long shirt here at home, where we've had a lot of hot days lately. This is definitely going in my suitcase in September!"

Thank you, Margy!
