cart full of fabric: GIVEAWAY WEEK!

cart full of fabric: GIVEAWAY WEEK! @ fluffyland craft & sewing blog

What is this?! An entire week of giveaways?!

Yes! And I’m giving away everyone’s favorite thing: fabric! I’m recklessly purging my fabric stash, which means we all win: I get storage space and you get my excess fabric!

Today I got a late start, but every day this week I will be scheduling a post for 12:00am EST. Each day’s entry will be open from 12:00am EST to 11:59pm EST. The winner for each day will be announced and contacted the following morning, and if you’re the lucky one, you’ll be sent a package full of fabric goodness!

What’s Today’s Fabric Look Like?

The most important question!

day 1 of fabric giveaway week: vintage florals

The main fabric in this bundle is a vintage floral crinkly-on-purpose poly-blend: the woman whose stash this initially came from has kindly marked its size, 1 5/8 yards, 40″ wide (don’t you love it when you find those?). The other two fabrics are new but vintage-look cottons, and each measures in at about a half yard. And you never know, the winner might get a surprise or two as well!

How do I enter?

1. You receive 1 name in the hat for a comment on today’s giveaway post. Say whatever you’d like – if you’re lost for ideas, think of something you could make with today’s fabric! And make sure to use a valid email address so I can contact you if you win!

2. You receive 1 additional name in the hat for mentioning this giveaway on your blog (and tell me in your comment!) I have made some buttons below to help you out in this endeavor!

*My apologies, but I cannot send packages outside the United States in this giveaway!*

    Am I commenting in the right place? I hope so!

    The crinkly poly-blend would have to become some sort of summery blouse. It reminds me so strongly of my little Polish grandmother: she has a row of short-sleeved, wash-faded blouses hanging by her vintage Singer in her basement sewing corner. I wish I’d been interested in sewing before I moved away from her. She could have taught me a lot!

    I think the other two might become pillows. We’re moving into a two-bedroom apartment, and the second bedroom is going to be my craft room. I want to decorate it with cute patterns AND give myself somewhere to relax when I’m ripping out stitches, so pillows it is!

  • Thanks for commenting on my blog. I’m poking around your blog right now…:) What a fun giveaway! :) I hope I win! :)

    That’s awesome, it reminds me of my grandma too – although she was Irish-American. She had these thick plates with a pattern like that on it :-).

  • Hi! So cute, I don’t know what I’d use them for but I need to build up my stash. I posted this contest on my blog also: <a href="http://axisoftweevil.blogspot.com/2011/08/oh-look-contest.html&quot; Axis of Tweevil.

    The vintage floral looks like a gored skirt for one or both of my daughters! The lime green would definitely work as a wonderful apron panel for a knot dress! I love vibrant colors! The last fabric would become a tablecloth for my daughter’s play table. She’d love it!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • The bottom stuff does look vintage. I would love to add some bright colors to my quilt fabric pile. clairjuly at yahoo dot com

    I’ve recently begun sewing and enjoy reading your blog. Thanks for the opportunity to win the beautiful fabric.

    I would use the vintage type fabric with my vintage pillowcases to make a quilt for my bed. The other fabric I would use for children’s little bags.
