Giveaway!

It's giveaway day! I have two giveaways this time--first,

a set of 5 Figgy Pudding fabric gift tags. The fabrics are machine-sewn onto the gift tags with varied decorative stitches.

I'm also giving away this pile of scraps leftover from a couple projects I made this year. There are a lot of Heather Ross mendocino scraps, including seahorses, mermaids, octopi, kelp stripe, and swim class. I am also including some hand dyed fabrics as well as a few other scraps of coordinating aquas, oranges, and browns.

All you need to do to be entered to win is leave a comment on this post. I'd love it if you take a minute to tell me where you are and what you're making this week. Or just anything about yourself.

Comments will be closed sometime in the evening on December 6 and I will choose the winners with the help of random.org then.

While you're here, take a look over there to the right and check out my tutorials. I have several quilting tutorials, including how to do quilt basting, free motion quilting, and binding. I also have a tutorial for making a t-shirt charm pack dress and easy kids' capes.

Thanks for stopping by!

I am from kentucky and this week so far I haveb't made anything because I have been busy, busy, busy. Flu shots, and shampooing the carpet, putting up christmas ornaments and tree. But I am going to start making things for christmas. I seen these really cool magazine gift bags on threadbanger.com
I also want to make some fabric buckets for organization.

Anonymous said...

I love scraps -- and have a habit of keeping (and using, eventually) every last one, even if they're an inch square. It kills me to throw away precious fabric.
Just finished a queen-sized string quilt and now I'm onto ornaments for friends. If I don't get distracted by my piles of fabric and notebook full of quilt ideas/quilts in progress ...

Hi Vicki

I'm Viv in New Zealand. I'm quilting a few quilts this week, trying to finish some as part of my New Year's Challenge. One of them has been sitting around over a year now.

Love you giveaway, oh what i'd give to win your scraps. I have just used the very last of my mendocino, we can't get it here in NZ, so have to buy internationally. Such a pain :-(

The gift tags are very nice too.

Happy holidays.

Hi :D I'm Anna, a medstudent living in Holland. I got my first sewingmachine about a week ago, went through the first 25 years of my life without being allowed to even touch, and I've been having loads of fun with it so far. My goal is to make a stuffed elephant for my niece-to-be and since my sister's due in about 3 weeks I've been practicing every spare minute I've got. Your scraps would be perfect for it, since I've been thinking about giving it a patchwork look and it's really hard to find pretty fabrics for a good price without having to buy huge amounts here :(
