...Fabric Giveaway...

As many of you know, I love to sew... okay I really LOVE to sew. Moving to Korea, I was very skeptical of what I would "enjoy" about this country... I was nervous about living here for 3 years, when most people only sign on for 1 year. I mean 3 years... that's a lot of time to be in one country. Before moving here, I had NO idea that Korea is where most designer's fabrics are printed... Guess what that means for me? The prices reflect HUGELY on the fact that they're made here! As soon as I found my "happy place", coincidentally named, "Happy Quilt", a warehouse FULL of rolls upon rolls of designer fabric (even Vera Bradley I might add!) I knew that living in Korea for 3 years was totally doable!

I'm pretty sure that before we move, half of our weight allowance is going to be yards upon yards of my favorite fabrics... but for today, I'd like to share some of my fabric collection with you! This giveaway includes some of my favorite fabric finds, from my "happy place"... a little over a quarter of each! My favorite, is the owl print right now (black and white fabric).


Here's how to enter:
-follow my blog, and let me know in a comment that you're a new follower.
-write me a fun comment about something you'd make with this awesome fabric.
-tweet, blog, or facebook about this giveaway and leave me a separate comment telling me.
Pin It!

  3. What would I make?? I don't know!! See, I'm not much of a plan-ahead-er when it comes to sewing. Inspiration has to strike, then I have to jump up and do it. And do it till it's done, otherwise another good idea will come along and I'll have to stop the first and start the second. Or we all get sick at once and nothing gets done for a while.

    Anywho, I've been dreaming of making a hippie skirt that's floor length and has different patterned material for each "row." But, as I mentioned several weeks ago, I unpacked what I had remembered as an amazing fabric stash, and it was no longer amazing. It was woefully lacking. So now, I am on a quest to make it amazing!

  5. hmmmm how big is it? well if it's small i would you it to make ferial's headbands. and if it's mediumish i would use it to make wall art because our walls are ugly and boring. and if it's biggish, i would use it to make a summer breastfeeding cover up. i don't know what that's called, but the owl looks like he'd be really good for that :)
