fabric giveaway!


It's Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day again! Two lucky readers will receive half-yard cuts of each of these Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday prints by Andover. This fabric seems to be getting harder and harder to find. So sad since it's such a versatile print that can be used for many projects and not just sewing! 

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment telling me what you would do with the fabric should you win, easy peasy. As always, thanks for stopping by and if you like what you see, consider following this blog. International entries welcomed.

Winners will be chosen on Friday, May 25 and notified by Sunday the 27th! Make sure I can contact you via email in the event you win.

Good Luck!

Be sure to check out all of the other giveaways going on at Sew Mama Sew Blog, I've seen a lot of awesome stuff being given away.

or

one of these very useful pouches.

http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2011/06/summer-sewing-on-the-go-project-pouch/

I actually think the fabric lends itself to the pouch the best as I could do saishiko over the lines on the fabric!

Thankyou for the opportunity!

winterwrens at gmail dot com

DangAndBlast! said...

Ha- cross-stitch on the grid would be silly :) But I'd say it has the feel of the Oliver&S patterns to me, and my tiny baby (4mo) can have a full dress out of two fat quarters, so it would work for that! :)

Charlene S said...

I think it would make fantastic pillowcases for my bed.

Anne said...

Pillows to match my new couch! :) Thanks for the chance to win!

VickiT said...

Those would be great in one of the baby quilts I am going to be making my more recent Grandchildren. I think a strip of the lined fabric would be great to add into the quilt after I've machine embroidered their names onto it. A matching burp cloth and bib would make a great little set.

tusen said...

I'd use some for the kindle cover I badly need to make and I think it would just match the baby quilts I'm planning for my soon to be born nephews, so I'd probably use the rest there.

Kersten said...

this fabric is beautiful! I would probably place it nicely on my shelf and drool over it for a while. Then, when it finally got used, it would have to be for something small and uncluttered so these beautiful subtle prints were easily noticed. Maybe a planner cover or small bag?

whosgotthebutton said...

Oh, I would absolutely embroidery on them. Song lyrics on the lines, I think - lettering is one of my favorite things to stitch. And maybe some sort of cross-stitch something on the graph paper? I'm not sure there. But it's beautiful, so I'd probably just pat it and admire it for a while. :) Thanks for chance to win!
