Spring Break Fabric Giveaway Challenge

Hello wonderful readers! It's been a little quite on the blog lately because my life has NOT been quiet! I have just lived through the most stressful time of every school year - putting on the Drama Club production! The little kiddos did such a great job, and I am so proud, but also relieved that is is OVER! :)

My Crazy Kiddos!
I got three bouquets of flowers! Hello Spring!
Now that I am on SpRiNg BrEaK, I can't wait to get sewing! However, it is equally tempting for me to stay on the couch twittering away on the world wide web and such, so as a little extra motivation, I'm having a giveaway! Wait... a giveaway? As motivation? Yes my friends. You see these five fabrics:

They have been in my stash for quite some time, but I have fallen rather out of sorts with them. As I love spring cleaning, and getting rid of anything that's not of use or nailed down, I have decided that I am going to give them away to someone who would better use them, and I LOVE giving away things - hence the motivation.

However, this giveaway comes with a catch - I can only give away as many fabrics as garments I complete by the end of Spring Break! That's April 1st, 2013. So if I finish one garment, I can only give away one piece of fabric, but if I finish five, I can give all of them away!

Here's how to enter:

Leave a comment below by Thursday, April 4th (11:59pm - EST).  Vote for your favorite fabric and make sure I have your contact info in case you win.

The fabrics will be given away in order of favorite votes, so if I finish only one garment, the fabric with the most votes will be the only one given away, etc...

The winner will be announced on Friday, April 5th!

Here are a few of my project goals:

1 - Finish Sew for Victory Dress
2 - Hoodie for the Hubs
3 - Archer Shirt Sewalong
4 - Easter Dress
5 - Either a knit top or some baby bibs, or who knows?

Happy Spring Break! Now enough of this blogging - I gotta get sewing! :)


  1. I am torn between the Yellow with white looking twigs on it or the . . . Well now that I look back they are all nice. If I am lucky enough to win that might have to be your choice for my first dress for the summer with the pattern you gave me.

  2. I also love the yellow one! and the houndstooth is fun too! good luck on your sewing and have fun with it!

  3. They're all lovely, but I really like the red gingham! It looks like it;s a beautiful little summer dress just waiting to happen. Good luck with all the spring break sewing!

  4. They are all pretty, but I'm definitely feeling the blue and green ikat looking one in the middle... Enjoy your spring break!
