vintage sheet fabric giveaway


Doesn't this print just make you smile !

I found these in my local Vinnies the other day ,
two single bed sheets in beautiful condition .
To be really very honest with you I have enough
trouble cutting up one sheet let alone two so
I thought I'd better give some away to
someone who can really use them .

This will be the first time there is going to be
a catch to one of my giveaways , are you ready?

I would like you to tell me what you would do
with a metre of this fabric .

There are 2 pieces being given away so 2 of you
can have some , yay !

I can't wait to hear what you would make with this .

All welcome , I'll tell you the winners in a few days .

When seeing this lovely fabric, I immediately think of my baby grandaughter, LILY (4 months old), and about the lovely quilt I could make for her ;>)
Crossing my fingers (and toes) I could be the lucky winner...

In friendship,

Hi Clare, what a kind and generous giveaway! Do not enter me in the draw, I don't have any little ones to sew for at the moment (still hoping tho) :) Good luck to all of the ladies who have entered. Hugs, Sandy.

I run a family day care business, all the children would just love something made out of this material, a cushion maybe? we would treasure it always :) Jude

I love your gorgeous fabric. It reminds me of a painting I once saw and inspired me to make a little song up for my day care centre. Thanks for the memory.
I hope you choose someone who will share the fabric with children.

Hi Clare, What lovely fabric that is. I would make a coat for a doll and include it in a library display I am in the process of making. The subject is the weather and rain, it would be a very nice addition to the display. Kind regards, Anita.

Louise said...

I would make it into bunting and/or a matching floor cushion for my 3 little boys' bedroom, the colours match their room, and we get a lot of rain over here in England so it's perfect. Thanks for showing us the fabric, it does make me smile.

I'm making a bag for my daughter - this would be the perfect lining and there would be enough left over for a coin purse too!

Joan and Kevin said...

BusyBsewBiz said...

I think this fabric needs to be the inside lining of the bright red hooded jacket I am making (once the weather is cooler) for my littlest cutest 1 yr old cousin for winter.

Miss Muggins said...

I would love to use it to make a panel for the wrap skirt from Pip's new book (Sew La Tea Do). I am partial to old sheets, having once made a tunic top which I wear lots!
