Blogiversary Giveaway

This month marks one year since I first started blogging – my first “blogiversary” for those up with the lingo!  I can’t believe how quickly it has gone. It has been a great year, in which I have learnt a LOT, much of which has been as a result of tips and advice and sewalongs and tutorials and all other manner of joys which are so graciously and selflessly offered by the blogging community. I really do feel that it is a community, and I am really glad to be a part of it. I have blogged previously about how much I have achieved in this last year, and how grateful I am for the blogosphere, so I won’t bore you with all that again. Instead let’s get on to the good stuff – the giveaway(s)!

For your delight I offer up the following two lengths of fabric.

You may recognise this first fabric, as I used it to make my New Look 6557 dress. As a result of my compulsive over-buying of fabric, I have 1.1m of this left over to giveaway. It is 160 cm wide, so there is quite a lot to play with here. It's a great summery print, and would be great for a top or other small garment, or even a bag or two!

This second fabric I absolutely adore. I spotted it on my favourite fabric stall in Leicester Market and bought a substantial length for myself. I also couldn't resist buying a bit extra to give away to one lucky winner! This fabric is 1m x 1.4m so again, quite a nice length with multiple uses. I can think of lots of small projects this fun print would be fabulous for!
To be in with a chance to win either of these fabulous fabrics you need to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment below, stating which fabric you would like to win, and what you would make with it if you won. This giveaway is open internationally, and will close on Tuesday 27th March at midnight UK time. Good luck everyone!

  1. Happy Blogiversary!! :) I'd love to win the second fabric, and I would make a knitting bag to keep my growing yarn stash in :)

  2. Happy Blogversary! I think the first fabric is the purdiest fabric I've seen in a long time. I adore oranges and reds, particularly on a black background! I want to wear it and would make a waistcoat to wear over my white linen pirate shirt, yummo. And that would probalby leave enough to make a bag, or a matching waistcoat for MrC...

    1. It's actually on a dark brown background, but you can't really tell from the picture. I agree it's a lovely fabric :)

  3. At the risk of sounding identical to the others, happy Blogiversary!! :-)

    Both fabrics are gorgeous, but I'd choose the second one, just coz I'm about to start making lots of baby clothes and it would be super cute as baby and little kid outfits I reckon!

  4. Congrats!

    I would enjoy either fabric, and I would use the floral for a blouse, and the other for a kid's pillowcase, or the lining of a blazer (how fun!).

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. oooh! Or the backing of a baby quilt (for the second one). I'm just full of ideas today! must be the fabric!

  5. I could make some really cool things for my grands with the second fabric. They love it when I make them pillowcases. Thanks for the giveaway. I follow you via newsletter.
