Katrin said...

These look perfest for embroidery! I have quite a few nerd references I want to stitsch for my husband. Thanks!

susan said...

The first thing that came to my mind was the same as Katrin above. Embroidery. I think some of this fabric, some perle cotton and a zipper and you could have a perfect pouch.

Michele said...

A soft baby quilt would be cute in those fabrics.

Lindsay @ 402CenterStreet.blogspot.com said...

I'm thinking it would be cute to make teacher gifts with that. Some sort of a bag or pouch with "Thanks" written in my daughter's preschool scrawl? Cute, cute, cute!

Alexis said...

Definitely embroider a saying on them. My sister is having a baby, it'd be sweet to embroider his name and birth info on it and attach it to the baby quilt I'm working on!

Aunt Spicy said...

I just started pulling fabrics for a quilt for wounded warrior, I could use the lined fabric to embroider a thank you and the gingham in the main patterm!

Anita said...

Oh dear, I don't know! I could embroider names on the lines and use it for gifts of some sort...it's adorable.

Ginger said...

I would use them both (one front, one back) to make a kickass Wiksten tank! :)

sookhyun said...

i really love this fabric you are giving away. it seems perfect for back to school items like a lunch tote or a book bag. I'd definitely use it for my daughter because she loves simple patterns.

~Michelle~ said...

Personalized name wall decorations?? So many possibilities!

zarina said...

I am now doing small items since I am planning to become part of craft fairs. I think most likely it will become a journal cover. It reminds me of school.

ann said...

I'm a teacher a math/chem teacher so this fabric is my life. I. Must. Have. Some. I think the graph would have to show an ECG or some such to give a friend who has had heart issues (of the love, not medical kind). I would like to embroider a poem to place in the centre of a scrappy log cabin for each of my four kids and one for their dad--my love. Maybe something on the chemistry of love..he's a science teacher too.

Pile O Fabric said...

I agree with Katrin, I think this would be perfect for embroidery, which I am learning right now. I already follow your blog and love it, thanks Erica!

Megan said...

This fabric is great, I love the aqua color. I think I would make a baby quilt.

foodmathquilts said...

I'm going to steal Katrin's idea and plan to use this fabric for embroidery - maybe then turning it into a bag or laptop case?

Sarah

mean sarah jean said...

i'm thinking a little purse for my girl

CitricSugar said...

I love that fabric! I'd probably turn it into some sort of fabric sketchbook...

Katie B. said...

Sweet! I think I might use them for a notebook cover.

christinaree said...

Would definitely make a little pouch or purse!

Fabric Warrior (aka Amie) said...

Mermaid Sweets said...

Love these. I would hoard them for a while, then probably make a bag out of them.

Mermaid Sweets said...

Love these. I would hoard them for a while, then probably make a bag out of them.

Amber H. said...

I would probably use the grid in a Noodlehead 241 Tote; as for the dashed stripes.. honestly not too sure. Gotta have it in my hand and listen for the inspiration!

Emily {Creative Chicks} said...

Definitely a quilt for myself. I am collecting these aqua/turquoise colors to use.

Jan said...

I think I'd use these as the start of a baby quilt.

Sarah said...

Hoops... definitely! or embroidered patches for quilt tops.. They're ideal!

Jennifer said...

I think this fabric would be really fun in a quilt, or as a bib. We need bibs right now.

jenn.barclay@gmail.com

Jessica Christensen said...

The dotted line print would need me to do some applique on it for quilt blocks. The grid could bind it.

Crafty Moira said...

Oh I love that fabric -- I use graph paper in my art journal a lot, so I think I would do a small art quilt!

Libby said...

I think they would make a great skirt for a little girl.

Krystina said...

I would make something for my daughter. Maybe a skirt?

mrsc1345 said...

I have been wanting some of that dash fabric forever, but can't find it anywhere. I wanted to do little embroidery pieces copied from my children's handwriting on a quilt. Hope I win it!! This is my favorite give away so far!

rebekahricker (at) yahoo (dot) com

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Hmm... these look great for simple, little girl dresses!

Sarah said...

Yay for co-ordinating prints, I'd be whipping up a kindle cover in no time. Thanks for the chance to win!

Amy said...

Probably the lines fabric I would use to embroider text - maybe make a label or few for quilts. The graph paper one is more likely to end up in patchwork, perhaps with a little embellishment, a la chicken scratch designs usually seen on gingham.

amye said...

oh, my, goodness! i search for these fabrics all the time. i want to embroider on my little boys handwriting. i have a paper with his name that he wrote when he was four and he made his capital E with about 15 "arms" and it is so cute.

Hmmm - not sure - maybe for a quilt. Thanks for the chance!

Marian said...

Lovely fabrics! I think these particular ones would be super awesome with something embroidered on them and then made into a bag or a tote or something you can show off! Thanks for the chance!

mab said...

We just found out that we're having a little boy. With two older sisters, this little one doesn't need any of the hand-me-downs in the house. That means I have lots of blankets, quilts, and other baby gear to make for him. These prints are PERFECT!
Thanks for the chance to enter!

TheAccidentalCrafter said...

I was just looking at making my own "lined Paper" fabric to stitch up a pouch for the teachers, so these will be perfect instead.

atabanana29 said...

I would make my girlie a skirt!!! mjalfano19@gmail.com

Laura Szucs Werner said...

These are such pretty fabrics the first thing I would do is simple look at them. I find that when you look at the fabric long enough it will tell you what to do with it. Most likely I would make a quilt for my living room as the colors are perfect to lift my room and my spirits.

Kimberly F said...

So pretty! I love how understated they are, I think I would make my baby girl a sweet summer dress.

Netta said...

I would add them to a quilt... a little here and there. Thanks for sharing.

Some of the Zakka projects that have come up.

Melissa Palmer said...

Thanks for the giveaway!

melissajpalmer at yahoo dot com

heartsease54 said...

Quilt labels & small pouches, maybe a sewing roll (kit).

Jill said...

I think it would be great for a quilt!

Ali M said...

To be blunt, I have no idea what I'd do! When I get a new fabric I just hold it over my container where my stash is and compare it to different fabrics to see what combination calls to me, then go from there. Thank you for the giveaway!

Amy said...

This is cool fabric. I've seen people 'write' things using thread on the lines and because I am rubbish at embroidery I would buy mini stamps and stamps letters onto the fabrics. Yum!!

Fiona said...

I think I'd use the fabrics to make a bunting for my kids' room. They look pretty gender-neutral.

marci sinfisi said...

mmm i love this fabric!
im into baby quilts now, so id use the fabric for that with some nice applique......

thesewingroomdiva said...

I love the sweet and the calming effect of the aqua dotted lines and little square lines against the fair background. Great for accessories in a bedroom; such as a ruffled pillow case, one of the photo frames and a soft toy shaped like a fish.

Stitched Together said...

I think both fabrics would make great bag linings, as they are nice and light, which helps see where things are, but they have lots of interest too so they aren't dull.

Jamie B said...

I'd probably embroider something on them. I like to do modern stitching on classic fabrics - it'd be an interesting change of pace to do something intricate and old-fashioned on a modern print. :)

Michell said...

Definately would have to be part of a bag

Lyn said...

The fabrics look great! I'm thinking that it would be great to make a pencil pouch with it, and have some name / fonts embroidered on it.

Njeri said...

A messenger bag for my son.

Jessica said...

I love these fabrics! I would use them with embroidered words!

Close Knit said...

ECSquared said...

I'd make a cute wallet with an applique on the outside dashed fabric, the other tucked into the inside to hold my cards and coins :)

jmj said...

This fabric is so sweet. I think it might be used for some little zippered bags, and then the left over bits would be carefully hoarded for a while!

Laura said...

Those would make great bag linings since they are light-colored but still interesting.

Kelly O. said...

I love this fabric! I would make a love notes quilt and hand embroider a little encouraging note to my daughter on the lined fabric throughout the quilt

Carmen said...

Oooh oooh! I'll be making a text-fabric quilt in the coming weeks. I know these prints could easily play a starring role in it, but I think I might consider them for a sashing, actually. You have me feeling too confident that I'll win now, LOL! Thanks so much for a wonderful giveaway:)

laura said...

Melissa Corry said...

Cherry Possum said...

Unfortunately if I were to win, I would just have to sit and look at it until my sewing machine comes out of storage : ( But then I would definitely make a little message mini quilt and use up every last scrap!

Irenoski88 said...

I'd love to do an ipad case

Lisa C in GA. said...

They look like they would make perfect linings for zipper pouches. I love the look of that color blue against natural linen.

Crunchy Con Mommy said...

It'd be fun to use the checks to make shorts for my son and the stripe to make a shirt to match-I think a half yard would be enough (might have to add some solid white or blue to go with it-but it might be enough!)

starsandsunshine.com said...

I've never seen these before and love them - they look like great prints that could work in a lot of quilts. I love the one that looks just like graph paper!

Julia @ Stars&Sunshine
starsandsunshineblog at gmail dot com

Kitty Vane said...

I would embroider my favourite poems or sayings on them and make them into wall-art or maybe a cute little pencil case.

Thank you so much for such a lovely giveaway!

tialys said...

I'd definitely team them with some natural linen - as I am prone to do - and, as others have said, it would be fun to do some sort of printing - maybe stencilling on the lines.
Thank you!

thetialys@gmail.com

JustPam said...

I agree with others. This would be great to add embroidered patches to quilts.

Annette Henke Tejpal said...
