May Giveaway to Celebrate our Grand Opening!


Hi all,

In celebration of our Etsy Store Grand Opening, we are participating in the May Giveaway Day hosted by Sew,Mama,Sew!


Here is our Giveaway:

We are giving away 2 yards of Michael Miller fabric: 1.5 yards of the beautiful "Gerberalicious" and .5 yards of coordinating "That's It Dot".


Giveway Instructions:

1. Leave a comment to this post with your plans for the fabrics. (Angie will be picking the most creative plans for this beautiful fabric.)

2. After choosing the top five creative plans (no way she'll be able to pick just one, right??) Angie and I will award up to two extra entries for each of the top five who have also:

a) posted at least one other comment on our very first week of colorful blogs, and

b) visited our Etsy shop. (After visiting the shop come back to this blog and tell us about your favorite item).


How we'll pick a final winner:

Angie's "Top Five" will each be written on a 3 x 5 card. Up to two extra entries for each will also be written on separate cards. All cards will go into a mixing bowl and Angie's granddaughter, Madison (age 2), will pick the ultimate winner of our giveaway.


A few more details:

Yes, we'll ship the fabric internationally.
Our first giveaway is open until May 31st.
We will ship the fabric to the winner by June 3.

Thanks, Barbara, for helping me fix the comment box!

Jerri said...

I would make an adorable girl's sundress with the fabric and ribbon ties.

M said...

Congrats on your Grand Opening!
These fabrics would be absolutely perfect for the Spring Ruffle Top at Sew.Mama.Sew http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=791
1.5 meters of Gerberalicious for the body, and .5 of That's It Dot for the pockets & chest band!
Thanks for a great giveaway!

modernquiltlove said...

Hmm I can never really decide what to do with fabric until I have in my hands but I adore gerber daisies and I think this would make some amazing clasp purses with the dot as the lining fabric. There would still be fabric left over and the daisies would be great to create a fabric flower to decorate a blouse.

modernquiltlove said...

The bird valance in your Etsy shop is just too cute! I can't wait to see what else you come up with.

M said...

Just had a look at your etsy shop! The birds of a feather valance is my fav! I have a thing for birds & the big buttons are so adorable!

two hippos said...

Yum! I love the Gerberlicious. I would use the fabric to make a sweet skirt. And from your shop, my favorite item is the lemon dish towels.

I'm doing a giveaway as well and hosting a fabric swap. Come and check it out :)

Melissa said...

The first thing I thought of when I saw this fabric was that it would make an adorable skirt! A full skirt with the polka dot on the edge and adding a black bias tape hem.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Jen said...

summer top for sure. i don't think it's very original but this fabric is calling for it. and the scraps from making the top will be used for patchwork...waste not, want not!

Jen said...

i really like the birds of a feather quilt...and that there are matching valences!

Kara said...

I have two ideas.
1. I have been planning to upholster a board with some quilted material and make a growth chart to mark my children's heights on, using a different block of material to show each foot of measurement. Since we don't own our house and won't live here forever, I don't want to just mark it on the wall.
2. A cute sundress for my daughter. I can never resist a cute dress.

Kara said...

I love the My Little Pardner Wipe Travel Case in your etsy shop. I'm a sucker for cow print anything!

britt said...

some kind of cute twirly skirt for my niece.

LFinn said...

My best friend loves Gerber daisies, and is in the process of opening a coffee shop with her husband. I would love to surprise her with an amazing apron made of the daisy fabric with the dot fabric for pockets and ties--it would be adorable! Thanks for a great giveaway.

LFinn said...

I just visited your Etsy store, and I LOVE the birds of a feather quilt. What a great way to display a stunning fabric.

peacenluv78 said...

i think a nice grocery tote would be nice...

peacenluv78@gmail.com

Heather said...

I would make a small handbag for me (the Buttercup bag, perhaps?) and a sundress for my daughter...we'd match!

Liz said...

Do you think the print is too large for a maternity top? I don't want to end up looking huge, but it would make such a cute shirt for the summer I think! With some straps or pipping done in the contrast. I suppose I might need to buy extra, but I'm willing to chance it!

Also, love the Little Pardner Wipes case from your shop! With a second boy on the way I need to streamline the diaper bag!

melonkelli said...

Ooh, I have seen a really cute Oliver + S sundress pattern that would be great in this fabric -- the daisy in the middle and the dots for the straps and facing.

Jenna Z said...

Gerberalicious screams kitchen cafe curtain! Not a ruffly one, a really slim, straight-lined one. Very summer!

Dolores said...

I would definitely make a bag for my daughter out of the gerbera fabric. She loves gerberas. The polka dot would go towards a bag for my other daughter. Any fabric left over would go towards a lap quilt for my mom because she loves red.

emilyflippinmaruna said...

I am wanting to make that picnic blanket from the tutorial on Sew, Mama, Sew! and this would be great to use for patches on that!

Jennifer said...

That fabric would be beautiful in a large tote bag or purse!

Jennifer said...

The my little pardner blankie is so cute!

Raspberry said...

An adorable skirt with the flowers, with a ruffle on the bottom for the polka dots.
A reversible bag. A reversible hat. A reversible baby blanket. See, it has to be reversible because both are so CUTE!

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

My best friend is using red Gerbera daisies for her wedding.

I think I would (and now will) make her a photo album for her bachelorette party & bridal shower using that material. With the leftover fabric, I think a tote bag would be great for her as well!

Even if I don't win, thanks for just helping me come up with a whopper of an idea!

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

Congrats on your Etsy shop. I love the blankie and burp cloth. Very cute.

Kris said...

I don't know if it's all that creative but I would *love* to make a skirt with a dot waistband!

Megan said...

I would make my daugther's 2 yr. old birthday dress. I have started this tradition and have yet to pick a fabric for her July birthday. This fabric would be perfect!

Oh, and I love the little pardner blanket in the etsy shop. I can already picture my son walking around with it as his "lovey"

Lottie said...

Wow I love your birds of a feather quilt - I am really drawn to birds on fabric!

I would love to use that fabric to make a reversible wrapover skirt - I am brand new to sewing but think that would be within my abilities(?.

I think your selection process is really cute - pick me Madison!

Susan said...

Great giveaway! This fabric would be perfect to make a bag for my knitting. I checked out your Etsy shop and I love the Birds of a Feather quilt.

The Mangerchine's said...

I would make a half apron; the main piece being the daisies and the waist tie, pocket, and trim in the polka dots.

The Mangerchine's said...

My favorite item in your etsy store are the Sweet Lemon Towels.

Charissa said...

I would definitely use this fabric for several small projects for Christmas presents. I'm expecting a new wee one at Christmastime, so I'm trying to get a head start. :-)

Lisa said...

Beautiful fabrics! I would love to use these for this bag: http://machenmachen.wordpress.com/2007/08/31/free-pattern-for-the-wasp-bag/
Gerbers on the outside and the dots for a lining!

Lisa said...

The bird valance on your Etsy shop is adorable!!

CJ said...

I think I would make a fabulous summer dress for my college age dd. I have two patterns in mind already. I would trim the dress with the dot and maybe make her a purse as well.

Anita said...

Beautiful fabric. I would probably make a summer dress for my nearly 5 year old daughter.

khristal said...

I would use the fabric to make a skort (shorts skirt) or a skant (skirt pants) for my little pixie.

Baba said...

This would be too cute in an apron with ruffle caps and pockets. I would love this!

Shanny said...

I'm going to use them in the quiet books I'm making my girls!

Shanny said...

I love the wipe case!

Jen said...

I was thinking of wrapping pieces of fabric around a small canvas or within a frame to decorate a small room in my home. This would be so eyecatching for that!

The Shumate Family said...

I would love to make a dress for my little girl, or maybe a killer summery skirt for myself... or both?! That would be so fun! congrats on your grand opening!

hcotten said...

O.k. this is not very creative, but I would absoutly HAVE to use that fabric to make the round neck top from thatdarnkat (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25256168). I am obsessed with this pattern and I think these fabrics would look great. However, with a yard and an half of the Gerberlicious, I would probably make the dress, not the top.

hcotten said...

my favorite item in your etsy shop is the sleepytime blankie and burp cloth

marie*jolie said...

Well I've gotta say it... this would make the cutest wrap skirt EVER. Probably wouldn't be enough for it, I'm guessing, so I would possibly add some red fabric from my stash. I'm all about the 1950's retro style. Thanks for the chance to win! leafygreenes at gmail dot com

Tanya said...

I doubt I'm the most creative, but I would make my daughter a crossback sundress with the daisy and matching bloomers, and hat if I had enough fabric left. I have finally got my M5353 pattern sized right after my disaster with it. :)

My fav item in your shop right now is your quilt:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25602010

I'll check out your blog and post another comment too. Best of luck with your blog and your shop. :)

Eema-le said...

These will wither be turned into a skirt or top for me. I LOVE the fabrics.

Vanessa Monet said...

Wow, love these fabrics! And you're generously giving a good share of it away so that something substantial can be made with it. Thanks!
If I won this fabric....
I would incorporate it into a patchwork duvet cover I am planning to make for my cousin. She just graduated from the US Coast Guard Academy and is going to be stationed in Alaska for the next two years. Since she will finally have her own place (no more dorms, yay!) I wanted to make her something special for her new home. These prints are feminine and cheery...great for those gloomy Alaska days.

Thanks for doing this giveaway!!

p.s. The little pardner wipe case was too cute...never thought of something like that! I also commented on Wheat Wednesday. Loved your week of colors! I'll be checking your blog more often. =)

Ginger said...

This fabric will make an adorable, ruffled, vintage- style aprin!

kirstenjoy said...

I would buy some coordinating chenille to make a girly and modern baby blanket as seen on craftapple.wordpress. and use the polka dot fabric and floral scraps to make coordinating burp cloth as seen on "a chelsea morning" blog.

willywagtail said...

Wouldn't that just make a most beautiful skirt! I am totally in love. I have also commented on your green post.

Venezie Bags said...

I can see this fabric as an apron or fun tote!

This little blanket in your shop is darling:

My Little Pardner Blankie

Good Luck wiht your shop!

I would make a bunny bowling set for my baby girl!

(I'm just learning to sew so nothing too complicated yet).

no4daughter said...

I would love to cover some cork with this beautiful fabric and hang it over my sewing machine to tack up patterns and inspire me whilst sewing. My favorite item in your etsy shop is the lemon kitchen towel set.

Starbound Studios said...

The fabrics are adorable!! I would use the flowers as the main fabric on a skirt, and the dots around the hem. They would make a great summer skirt to wear to work :o) Great giveaway!

Starbound Studios said...

Checked out your Etsy shop, and great start!! I absolutely love the "My Little Pardner Blankie". If I had a little one, it would be the first thing I purchased!

Christina, Steve, Clara and Elena said...

I'd like to make peppy notebook covers out of these, then have my daughters help me give these away on campus to the students here in town taking summer school classes (they need some pep!).

abby said...

The daisy print is perfect for a baby sling. Just think how great it would look with a little baby snuggled in there.

abby said...

Oh, and after checking out your etsy shop, I want the My Little Partner Blanket for my little guy. Too cute.

Angi said...

I love to use "adult" looking prints for baby stuff. A kimono top with polka dot trim and booties to match...I might even have enough for some little bloomers.

{wood (dot) angi (at) gmail (dot) com}

Mommyof2girlz said...

I would make a dress for my daughter, just love the fabric! Thanks for the giveaway

Bec Clarke said...

junglewife said...

I'd love to make matching tiered skirts for my little girls!

Nik said...

this fabric is delicious! i'd love to make myself a cute skirt with the flowered print..i'd make a coordinating polka dot top but i'll need to purchase more fabric eh?

Prairie Girl said...

Gerberalicious is right! Absolutely gorgeous!

My mother in law is just teaching me how to smock and I think a gathered tunic top in the gerber's with the dots as accents would be ridiculously cute.

You have a lovely etsy shop - with my favorite item being the Howdy Pardner Wipes case cover. But I'm from the prairies so anything cowboy is perfect :)

Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

Ciyou said...

congrates on your shop openning.

This fabris are so prefect for bag making. I love make bags from bright colors and it brighten the day

The Zoo Keeper-ette said...

I am teaching myself but have gotten pretty good at making these darling stuffed animals and dolls (no interfacing involved- it scares me!!!)- Anyway, gerber daisies are my favorite flower so I would want to make all sorts of cuties with this: a doll, a pig (wouldn't a pig out of flowers be precious!!), a lamb, a bear, and a bumblebee!!

grandmarockton said...

I've 2 small granddaughter who'd loves dress, and the wipe travel cause theres a boy on the way! Congrats on shop I love esty

Fish in Training said...

This fabric would be great for a ladies scrub cap! Daisies for the body and dots for the brim an ties... operating room chic!

Jeni and Jenilee said...

I want a sheared top sundress with polkadot pockets and straps! okay its not creative but you know it sounds cute!! thanks for the chance to win!

Nikki said...

That fabric is fabulous! I would have to say I would be have to make my cousing who is expecting another girl a diaper bag with that or my little one a summer dress but probably a diaper bag!

Jessica said...

I'm going to make a little A-line mod dress for my 2 yr old from a vintage pattern from the 60's.

my fav on your site is the birds of a feather quilt!

thanks!

jzuchows at princeton dot edu

nanann said...

Love the fabric! Thanks for the giveaway!

I am primarily a quilter but have branched into children's clothes and am having so much fun with the near-instant (esp. compared to quilting) gratification. I think these 2 fabrics would be great for making coordinating dresses for my girls - the gerbers for my 3 year old, and the dots for my 1 year old. I really like to coordinate rather than just match.

These dress patterns might work -- I just did them and they took relatively little fabric, and could add a touch of each fabric to the others for the true coordination:
http://nanannwoogies.wordpress.com/2009/05/19/my-girls-rehearsal-dresses/

sorry about pointing to my own blog - feels so much like pimping out - but I really think they'd work well!

OH, and as for your etsy shop, really like the sleepytime blankie. I worked with minkee once and probably never again despite how deliciously soft it is!

GloJoeSews said...

I would like to make a great sling-style tote bag (messenger bag without the flap.) I'm a first grade teacher and would be the hippest teacher with a cheerful work bag the body made of the flower print and the trim and straps made from the polka dots! Love it and hope to win!

Deirdre said...

I...see...this fabric as a nice fall skirt, with a ruffly bottom with the dots and perhaps two stripes down the sides of dots. Fun!!

Astrid said...

My four year old would love a dress or a skirt made from these - I'm not quite sure which it would be, I would have to browse some patterns first! Gorgeous fabric! :)

Y said...

Would try to make an awesome wide brim hat (kinda like the one Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's except this one would be colorful with a polka dot band! Love the Birds of a Feather Quilt on etsy too!

ange_moore said...

I love the gerbs - so beautiful and bold. I was also thinking a skirt but don't think I'd be brave enough to actually wear such a bold print so maybe I'd have to make a bag and use it as a fabulous peekaboo fabric inside or make a book bag like the tutorial here - http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/05/bookkeeper.html!

carmel said...

unbelivable fabric!
so i would love to sew my self a pregnancy shirt
since im 7 monthes pregnant!
thank you

carmel said...

your etsy shop looks great

besides that, iloved the Sleepytime Blankie and Burb Cloth!!

Zarina said...

I have a (actually several) niece who I would love to make a pair of long pants (you know where SouleMama made some for Harper). Well, the pants will be the err, bigger fabric and the polka dots will be the cuff. Just right a girl.

I'm not sure how to add in the other things you've requested but here it is:
- I have commented in your turquoise post
- my favourite Etsy item is the childs quilt. I always love quilts and making them (too bad you are not offering enough to make a good size quilt).

tara said...

i don't understand everything, i'm french...but i will try to play with you...
i would sew my summer bag! with these two beautiful fabrics!!!
and my favorite item is the ladybug studio...

many thanks for this giveaway...you can play on my blog too;o)

love***

Leanna said...

I've got three friends with three baby girls on the way. I just saw the cutest pattern for a sundress and bloomers and Oh, I would love to give it a whirl! Thanks for the chance!

Melissa said...

I'm thinking something in my kitchen: perhaps incorporating the fabric in some kitchen towels, potholders, or maybe a table runner? Those bright colors would pop with the other colors in my kitchen.

fustian2 said...

That daisy print is so beautiful, there are many things I could think of doing with it ...

However, I would probably use it to make a tent for my daughter to play with in the garden. She loves having a little hideaway to come in and out of, and this would look so pretty in the garden among our flowers. I'd just have to be extra careful of bringing it inside and out of the rain!

My favourite thing in your etsy shop is the lemon kitchen towel set - I love that print!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

beagoodmom said...

how about a summer picnic cloth for the park. That seems like a nice bright print to use.

Treasuresofjoy said...

Gerbers are my fav flower and I love your shop. That Birds of a feather quilt is darling!
I want to make a skirt for me and a dress for my daughter!

Hootie said...

A travel pillow or two for my van! We always need a little something while on summer vacation!

Thanks for a chance to win! :)

hootie364@gmail.com

Kami said...

I'm thinking out of the box with the fabric. Every year at the Del Mar Racetrack for the opening day of the horse races they have fancy hat day. I can just see fussy cutting those beautiful gerber daisies out and fusing them down onto a hat that has been covered in the white with black polka dots fabric. I think it would be so chic with a simple black dress and a matching gerber daisy clutch. I love the fabrics.

Kami said...

p.s. gotta love the sleepy time banket in your etsy shop

Tina said...

I think the fabric would make a great purse.
I visited your etsy shop and loved the western baby blanket!..too cute! My boys' room is decorated in a western theme.

isabel f. said...

Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

I love polkadots tooooo!!

isabel f. said...

I was at your ETSY SHOP and i love the Sleepytime Blankie, beautiful!! :))

Kaye Prince said...

I definitely think a bag for my Mum might be in order. I would use Made by Rae's Buttercup bag pattern with the gerbera on the outside and the polka dot on the inside. There would be some fabric leftover and I know I could find a good use for it!

PinkPetunias said...

i would love to make a ruffle-butt skirt for my daughter. she is two and loves to make dots on her "chalk-it" (chalkboard) and anytime she sees flowers she has to pick them and smell them. of course when she is done she has to put them "back." she has no clue she already killed them by picking them but oh well, she is too cute to not let her do it. thanks for the chance to win.

PinkPetunias said...

love the My Little Pardner Blankie! adorable!

Steph said...

I'm thinking crib skirt and bumper for my neice. How perfect would that be?!

teresa p said...

I would make a market bag with the flowers on the outside. Pretty fabric. I love the cowboy stuff in your shop. My favorite print for boys!

teresaannpfister AT hotmail DOT com

Holee said...

First I love your name. Since I am beeshive, any buggie name is great with me!

I love your lemon towels and suggestion to pair them with a pitcher! I love the bold size of the lemons.

Red is my favorite color. I have just finished a white sundress for vacation and see the fabics you are offering as a large flowered sun hat with a dotted band and a flowered beach tote made with my added line green Kona.

Bethany said...

I think it would make a fabulous Margaret Sling Bag: http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2008/11/margaret-sling-bag.html

Beautiful Fabric!

Bethany said...

I love the lemon kitchen towel set! I can't wait to see some kids' clothes!

Carrie said...

I would love to make some new table linens...placemats and a table runner.

From your etsy shop, I love the sweet lemon kitchen towel. It reminds me of a set of dishes my grandma used when I was growing up.

Tiff said...

Wow I love that fabric. An apron or a skirt for my daughter is what I would make out of it!

Hermione J. Schwartz said...

If I were lucky enough to win I would use these fabrics in my hammock coverlet. I'm making a hammock but need a more inviting cover and pillow cover. I will be sure to check out your Etsy shop, too! =]

cindy said...

I think I will use it to make a caddy of sorts to hang on the wall to keep my rulers and supplies in--the dots could be the binding and some of the pockets. What an eye popper bonus for my sewing space!

cindy said...

Well, Just came back from etsy and would have to say...Lil pardner blankie catches my eye --love that cow print on the back for a baby--I find it cute and funny and just great!

Stephanie said...

That fabric would make cute curtains (and maybe a mini tablecloth, if there's enough leftover) in my daughter's playhouse.

I love the sleepytime blankie in your shop. Thanks for the giveaway.

bethany said...

I would love to make a Sunday dress and a matching wide brim hat for my 2 year old daughter (if enough fabric maybe a small purse to go with it). She would love it.

bethany said...

ps- I love the lemon kitchen set. I am just changing my kitchen to lemon and cherries!!!

JenniferO said...

I love that fabric - I would make a little girl's peasant dress with the floral as the main fabric and the polka dot for sleeves. Maybe a matching headband with lefovers.

Bethany said...

First, I would make a baby size headband out of Heather Bailey's pattern (http://www.heatherbaileydesign.com/HoorayforHeadbands.pdf). Next would come some Aimee Larsen kimono shoes (http://www.homespun-threads.com/patterns/kimonoshoes.pdf). Lastly, a bubble dress from Oliver + S (http://www.oliverands.com/patterns/dresses/patterns1.phtml)

The shoes and head band would be primarily made from the polka dot and the dress would use the gerbera print.

Oh man, I would love to win! I am drooling over this project already.

toodlesbybethany[at]gmail[dot]com

Bethany said...

The sweet lemon kitchen towel set is just lovely!

Featherglen said...

I would make a tunic top using the dot as a contrast around the neckline, cuffs and hem, the quantities would be perfect for a pattern I have! Then I'd use leftover flowers to make a corsage for a bag or hairband thingy. The I'd send it all to my sister for her birthday.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Well I am a quilter, and I would make a quilt focusing on the large floral. Love the fabric. I would have to add some rick rack to complete the look :-)

lyndyloo said...

Hi theis fabirc just says 50's style skirt to me but 1.5 yards is not quite anough of anyone fabric so I think I would have to use both with the polka dots as the inside of a pleat/dart, hem tape and waistband.
lyndy(at)pulsehr(dot)co(dot)nz

Michele said...

I'd let me daughter pick something for her new house for me to make. But I'd try and talk her into a cute skirt for the pedestal sink. Maybe we should paint the baseboards black to go with it.

I like the sweet little blanket/ burp cloth set.

Tawny said...

I have a need to make more Goddess shoes! This fabric would inspire the goddess in me, and hopefully it'll inspire the goddess in someone else. I decorate shoes with inspiration from the Greek goddess myths I've been reading.

Tam said...

I'm thinking Bag, a lovely summery tote type bag....or a dress for my little girl. Too many choices...but i have a great little 6 pocket bag that's quick to whip up in mind if I get my hands on that fabric
http://www.bhg.com/crafts/sewing/accessories/six-pocket-bag/

And now i have locked up my wallet and visited your store, the Sleep time blanket is so so sweet.

April said...

That fabric would look great as a skirt... my sister loves Gerber Daises so I am thinking a wrap skirt for her with the dots as trim.

April said...

And in your Etsy store? It is hard to pick just one favorite... I love the lemon fabric you decorated the towels with and the Lil Pardner Blankie is too cute...I love that fabric!

Michele said...

I'd like to make a quilt, a tablecloth or a purse. Not very original, I'm afraid.

Julia Marie said...

Love these fabrics! I'm planning on making a new camera neck strap for my DSLR. I'm sure there'd be enough extra to make an amazing clutch!

Julia Marie said...

I'm a big fan of the lemon kitchen towel set - the ricrac is a great addition!

Maggie said...

I've been working on posting new tutorials on my blog... so I'd use the fabric to make a bag out of the fabric and then post the tutorial.

Carolyn said...

I see these two making a fabulous pillow for my sofa. I think I'd make a quilt top from the flowered fabric, and I'd hand stitch around the flowers for the quilting. The dots would be the backing.

Thanks!

missdines said...

i'll make a new octopus softie character!

♥ hey, you should try your luck at my giveaway too!

JBear said...

Ooh! I can see that Gerberalicious fabric as a pretty sundress for church. And that polka dotted fabric as some pillow cases for my roommate since she her social club colors are black and white. :)

Also, my favorite item in your shop is the Birds of a Feather quilt. Very nice. :)

Emily said...

Awesome giveaway! I would like to make a beautiful vintage dress from the 1950's era and matching purse that I can wear to church. I would also make a matching vintage style apron to go with it for when I am baking in the kitchen with my mom. If I have enough left over, I would like to make my doll a matching outfit.

By the way, I love your name. My nickname is Ladybug.

I am 8. I am learning how to sew. I have been doing some embroidery stitches. My 6 year old brother is learning some too. I hope to be on the machine before the end of summer. There are pictures of both of us sewing together and of our projects on my blog. Further down in previous posts, I also have pictures of my family, mom, dad, 15 month brother and other brother and sister. We homeschool.

I am having a giveaway as well at
www.sewingsister.blogspot.com

and so is my mom at www.sewingwithtrudy.blogspot.com

Jessie said...

We are moving into a new house and the fabric would be PERFECT for a window valence in the kitchen. It's so bright and cheerful...it just screams smiles! :-D

Jessie said...

Oh and I LOVE the Birds of a Feather valance and quilt in the etsy shop! So cute!

Cassie said...

I would love to make a biscuit quilt pillow cover/duvet with this for a little girls room. And arrange the biscuits in the shape of a gerbera daisy (I love these flowers!), the polka dotts being in the background/sides of the daisy. I can see it now! :)

I love the playful polka dot pants for a toddler!

Thanks for doing this giveaway!

Creative creation....well, there's this Easter basket tutorial on the Moda Bakeshop website that I wanted to do for Easter a couple months ago, and never did it. (http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/03/fabric-easter-basket.html)
I would love this fabric to make an Easter Basket (not just any basket, but Easter)...I bet no one else wants to make an Easter Basket, right? (what about boxers for my husband? I am SURE no one else would make boxers for their man our of gerbera daisies. Am I right?)
thanks for the giveaway!

Well, the famous japanese XIII top would be great with these fabrics !

I like the birds of a feather quilt in your shop, really cute!

LisaO said...

LOVE this fabric...I think it would make the greatest skirt.

I would love to make matching aprons for my daughter and myself. With the scraps I could make a matching one for her doll.

I left a comment on Sienna Saturday. I really like the colorful forest dishcloths.

My niece is getting married soon and moving into her new house with her husband. Both of our favorite flowers are Gerbers!! So I would make her a super cute Flirty Skirty Apron. (and hopefully have enough left to make me a half apron...)

B said...

I'd make decorations for my babe's first birthday. They'd second as room decorations since we're moving a couple weeks before, and let's face it, I'm going to need both.

Sheila said...

I have been wanting to make some table runners for my grandmothers and a fun tote bag for my mom when she travels. I give away 90% of what I make, so to win some fabrics would bless me and then will turn around and bless someone else.

Paul Thompson said...

Summer hats, silly!
I think I'm going to win!

Oh,I just love Gerbera daisies. I would want to make a padded stool for a little girl to sit on out of the Gerberas with the polka dot as the ruffle. If there was any Gerbera left -- I would use it in an improvisational quilt with the Gerbera fabric as the main center fabric. Thanks for a great giveaway!

I'm adding you to my Google Reader TODAY! I haven't seen your blog before, love the eye candy...

My favorte item in your etsy shop is the forest dish towel set. I like the other stuff too, but I don't have kiddies!

I love that MM fabric...and I have had a new handbag design in my head for weeks that I was thinking black and red for...these would be PERFECT!

I am addicted to fabric. Addicted. It's a problem. Maybe I shouldn't tell you that or you'll think you shouldn't pick me lest you enable my addiction.

But come on, let's be codependent here....

When I first get fabric, I lay it out in a conspicuous place in my house. Maybe my nightstand. Maybe the dinner table. Maybe by the tv. Then, I look at it. Periodically I touch it, unfold it, refold it, and place it back. I think about turning it into a bag. No! a quilt! Maybe an outfit for my daughter...

After a few weeks of this, I finally put it in my drawer. I lay awake at night envisioning color combinations. Eventually, a eureka moment comes and the perfect fabric meets up with the perfect coordinating fabrics and creates the perfect project idea.

Over the top? A novel worth of comment? Yes and yes. :)

Thanks for the chance to enter! I hope Madison's sweet little hands fish out this loooooong comment from the bowl.

Oh! I've just checked your Etsy site! You have been hearted.

My favorite item is the Happy Forest dish towel. The fabric is really playful and the ric rac is a great touch I haven't seen before.

Iva said...

Oh my... the Gerberalicious would make a great sundress with the That's It Dot as accent sashing! Or they would work up into a beautiful tote! So many possibilities!!!

Iva said...

Love the Sweet Lemon Towel Set on your Etsy shop!

mub said...

I think I would make some reversible bicycle seat covers with this, and possibly a little rain hat!

Francoise said...

I would make a reusable shopping bag (with the polka-dot fabric as the liner)

Mama King said...

I would make matching dresses and hats for my girls. I know not original! But you should see my girls...they would look so cute in this nice bold fabric combo!

Louisa said...

I would make the Heather Ross blouse which I've seen in a number of blogs. I've been wanting to make some clothes out of lightweight cotton and the gerber daisies say 'Where me' to me. The dots say headband to me. If I'm hearing the fabrics correctly.

I love the curtains but my favorite item in the etsy store is the My Little Pardner Wipe Travel Case.

mominmentalmotion said...

I would make a skirt and purse combo from the fabrics. I love them both!

mominmentalmotion said...

I love the shop items but mostly, I love the lil pardner items. So cute for my grandson.

Daisy said...

I think this would make an adoreable purse or apron. Thanks for the giveaway.

Misty.Creek said...

I love your My Little Pardner blankie--I need that for my little cowboy!

And I'd love to make a pretty bag for myself-use it to try a hard pattern and challenge myself.

corvustristis said...

I would most likely make a top. I imagine a v-neck with an obi belt made from the contrasting fabric. If I had any scraps left over, I'd use them to make folded fabric flowers.

bylulu said...

I'm going to make a 5 min skirt, by the angry chicken... a purse, and a shirt if there is enough fabric. Small pieces will be come a quilt and scraps become juggling balls. I like to use ALLL the fabric!

ni said...

What beautiful fabric LOVE the daisies. I think its crying to be made into a Fab Tote bag. I would make the body with daisies fabric and decorate it with the dots and plain red fabric ( like trimmings & a pocket. I think an Applique will also enhance my bag )
thanks

j.g.photography said...

Well, I've been toying around with a little pattern in my mind to make a fabric picnic basket. Now, I love orange, and I think those polka dots would make a great lining. And then, I would like to make a matching picnic blanket. I know, sounds ambitious, but I really think I can do it. What do you think?

j.g.photography said...

And I LOOOVVVVEEE your sleepytime blankie. The colors, the ric rac, all of it, I love it!

Super Fun Mama said...

I'd make a halterall.

kestch said...

My husband and I are heading off to an orphanage in Uganda in the summer (we are both doctors)with our children. I love the fabric and would maybe try to make some gifts for the staff in the orphanage.
I love the little pardner blankie on your etsy site - it looks so soft and cuddly!

Courtney said...

I see either an amazing apron (or two if I did cafe style) or a really really pretty skirt. thanks for the chance. :-)

Courtney said...

Also, I love the lemon kitchen towel set from your shop. I've even added it to my favorites so I'll remember it when I'm done painting my kitchen and ready to start decorating. Oh, and the baby blanket is so pretty, great colors and I love the print of the fabric with the kids on it that's used in it. :-)

DangAndBlast! said...

aww that's great! I'd make the Emmeline apron, and finally keep one for myself instead of giving it away! And make little bag-boxes with the rest (because they're so much fun).

llathifa said...

I love the Gerberalicious! I would make a Yukata for my sister, she studies Japanese Literature and sometime plays Shamisen in university's occasions.

From your etsy, I love Sleepytime Blankie and Burb Cloth!

Elizabeth Kay said...

Thanks for the giveaway!
I would definitely make a little girl's dress with a huge sash.
If I happen to win, you can just leave me a comment on my blog. Thanks again!

Breanna S. said...

I know exactly what I would use the fabric for. I have been looking for just the right fabric for patchwork and jumbo print throw pillows for our newly redecorated living room. the Red and Black would go just perfectly. I Have been wanting to make square pillows with circles of faberic in the center!

rosecottagecrafts said...

Thank you for this great giveaway. My fav in your etsy shop has got to be the birds of a feather quilt, I love the colors you've used. If I won this giveaway I would make a table runner of daisies and some napkins with the polka dot fabric. Thanks!
Rose

Digital Misfit said...

That fabric is so beautiful!
My niece is expecting her first child at the end of summer. She is a fashionable young woman, so I would pair these 2 gorgeous patterns with a solid black to make a stylish diaper bag and matching bits (change pad, key fob, rattle)

Digital Misfit said...

I LOVE your birds of a feather quilt (and the matching valance).
Perfect fabric and stitching.

heidig@gmail.com

A Joyful Chaos said...

I would love to make a frilly apron with this. It would be beautiful. There are so many other options too, A purse set, an outfit for one of my little girls, or a sweet skirt for myself. I'm sitting here drooling over the options.
I would reall love to win.

Mary said...

Wonderful fabric! I am making a baby kimono from Amy Butler's little stitches for little ones http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/products/books_detail.php#little
The Gerberalicious for the body & the That's it Dot for the trim would be perfect! Just found out my cousin is having twin girls, so the 1.5 meters and 0.5 will be perfect for a matching pair!

Mary said...

Your etsy shop is wonderful! I am such a big fan of the Birds of a Feather Quilt & matching valence, they are just adorable & would be really nice in a baby room.

Ooh, what a great giveaway!

I made my first sewing project ever this week - a pair of ruffled capri pants for my daugther (Porabellopixie's Ruffle Pants). So I would love to make another pair with 3/4 yard of the Gerberalicious flowers for the pant and 1/3 yard of the That's It Dot for the ruffles at the hem. Then, I would make a handbag for me, done by modifying Portabellopixie's Market bag - 3/4 yard of the Gerberalicious for the main exterior print, with the remaining That's It Dot yardage for an outside pocket. Both would be so fun, and then whenever my daughter wears her capris I can use the handbag - she loves to match mommy!

thanks so much for the incredible giveaway!! ❤

Rebecca said...

I think that I would make a knitting needle case for my friend- similar to the one that I have made here- http://craftalittle.com/?p=8 .

thanks for doing the giveaway!

Rebecca said...

I like the colorful forest dish towels! I haven't seen that fabric before- it is really cute!

susan marie designs said...

Ooh I love the birds of a feather valance in your etsy shop! I love the fabric combination, and I love birds! I think it could be suitable in several different rooms (including the window looking out to our patio) :)

Dancer said...

This would be so neat to recover our sun porch chairs in... three with the daisies and one with the polka dots!

julie k said...

I don't know if mine will be the most creative, but I love making tote bags. I definitely would use some for that. Then maybe a skirt for my daughter? Maybe a matching tote bag for her? Oh, that would be cute!

Thanks for such a nice giveaway!

The Fair Weather Optimist said...

I think I would use the fabric to make a little quilt and some comfy pillows for my daughter's reading area! It would be so cheerful in an otherwise kinda plain spot that I'm sure she'll be inspired to read more often!! Aww, see, now if I don't win you're contributing to childhood illiteracy... LOL!!!! (cracked myself up on that one!)
xoxoxo Jaime

oh and I am totally coveting those sweet lemon dishtowels on your etsy site!! Cute stuff!!!

Jess said...

I pictured a dress for my daughter right away!! Using the polka dot for the center section with some pleats (kind of like the oliver & s pattern) and a matching hair clip...this might not be the most creative, but I'm thinking this is all to cute!

Libby said...

Immediately it screamed to me that THIS is the combination I've been looking for the Lola apron I've been wanting to do (http://www.sewliberated.com/patterns/lola.html). If I don't win, I will probably grab this fabric and do it instead !!

Malinda said...

not horribly original but I'm trying to get together a wardrobe for my vacation so I'd probably make a skirt - I like angry chicken's 5 minute skirt pattern.

tammi said...

For Christmas I gave my 3 year old niece a tea set with the cutest little ladybugs on it. She loves having tea parties with it. For her birthday, I would like to make her a little tea cozy, tea towel and apron set. I think the gerbera print would be the perfect go-with for the bugs!

tammi said...

I love the My Little Pardner blankie. Wish I had a little pardner to wrap up in it.

Shellie said...

congrats on your Etsy shop! I think the towels are my fave -- very clever! and oh so cute!

As for the fabric, I have a little girl who LOVES everything I make for her and summertime is a comin'... a tank? a peasant top? a dress? we will see!

thanks!

:)S

knitaddict said...

I have two little girls who would look adorable in skirts made of this fabric with a lovely super spotty frill round the bottom! One loves spots and the other loves flowers so they'd be perfect. I'd probably have enough to make them co-ordinating handbags aswell! Well, "accessories have to match you know mummy!!"

Cara said...

Love the fabric! I just had a baby girl and would use the fabric to recover my son's little chair that he has outgrown to be more girly and to match our ladybug themed playroom. The dots would make great piping to accent the chair. I can already see it...so cute!!!

Cara said...

Oh, and I love the Forest dish towels on your etsy site. I'm a sucker for ric rac poking out of a project! Congrats on opening your store!

Anonymous said...

I would love to cut into this fabric for a large flying geese. dots being the small triangle and red flower being the big triangle. please enter me! thanks

Sarita said...

that gerbera daisy would be a great centrepiece for a summery quilt!
cheers :)

rebe said...

I love the flowers with coordinating dots. I would have to make something for myself most likely because the fabric is so cute. I'm trying to be a little more green these days so a cute market bag would be fun. I have also wanted to try a fabric headband for myself. I could use leftover fabric for that.

rebe said...

I happen to really like dish towels. I have no idea why so my favorite item in your shop was the forest dish towel set. The fabric you used was really cute. I also like the little western style blanket.

Polka Dot Moon said...

Oh I love this fabric and polka dots of course! I'd make something for my 15 month old to wear. She looks so darn cute in polka dots and bright bold colors :)
Thanks for the chance!
Denise

(Great Etsy shop too!)

Sandy in Buenos Aires said...

I'd make a set of 3 cushions with different patterns and I'd also make a summer beach bag and a bandana to match the bag and I'd proudly show it off at the beach!
Lovely fabrics! Very summer-y!
Thank you for the great giveaway and the chance to win!
