Let the games begin....




So, I have decided to give away two items in the IMAG's International Stash Busting Giveaway ( that's a mouth full.  The first are these 4 half-yard cuts of coordinating fabs.  Their cute, cheerful, and scream S-P-R-I-N-G which most of us will have to wait months to actually enjoy.  So, tell me what you would use them for, and hopefully you'll win.  




The second item is this bag I made which I will fill with scraps before mailing off to its new  home.   It has a square bottom and holds a small grocery bags worth of stuff.  It's fully lines, and STURDY!     So, get commenting and let's have fun!

  44. I've never owned any Amy Butler before..those pieces would a lovely first foray into her fabric. :) I don't know, first I would ooohhh and ahhh over the fabric, and I don't even know what I'd make. Perhaps some lovely jewelry (necklaces, bracelets) or a fabric art journal or a cute spring skirt? hmm...

    And that bag? Lovely! I'm not even sure I need scraps necessarily (I just got rid of a bunch of scraps).. but that bag looks LOVELY. :)

    But it'd be awesome if you did two winners, and I'd VERY MUCH LOVE to have the Amy fabric. :)

    thanks for this giveaway!!!

  61. My first thought was clothes for my daughter or an apron or a bag - but if I'm being honest I'd probably not make anything right away, as I'd have to admire it for a while, then slowly build up the courage to actually cut into it...
