First of many giveaways!

I hope you love free fabric because I love to give fabric away!

Blog Giveaway!

We will start it off with 1 full yard of Heather Ross Lightening Bugs & Other Mysteries Gnomes on Blue. In addition to that I'll send you a charm pack consisting of the other 12 fabulous fabrics pictured.

The winner will be chosen by random number on Friday, April 29th.

For 1 entry, leave me a comment telling me how you would use your fabric charms (quilting, applique, mug rugs, patchy zipper bags, etc.) To double your chances and get a 2nd entry, follow my blog and leave me another comment telling me you're a follower.

For every 50 entries I get I will draw another # for an additional charm pack winner, max 4 winners. Good luck!

  2. Well, I would use the charms for a mug rug or part of a table runner. :) For the gnomes I would make one of my girls a jumper or dress. Thanks for the giveaway Kori!

  9. Hi Kori, thank-you for the great giveaway! I would probably use the charms for some patchwork project (and probably not all at once!), and I would definitely make a pair of pj shorts with part of the yard of blue gnomes. Definitely!

  13. Holy moly, awesome giveaway! I think I would use the charms for quilting - I am steadily building an HR stash and I don't have a single gnome in there. I would probably also make a cute zipper bag or two for my niece, who loves HR almost as much as I do!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I was so glad to find your blog! I would use the charms for either a patchwork type purse or luggage tags, or something similar.

    ReplyDelete

  48. What would I do if I won? I would have to have a glass or wine or two before doing anything other than just look at it... then I would make a wonderful quilt using these as the centers.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would have to add them to a quilt! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  50. So cute! I would use some of the charms as accents in mug rugs for me and my bestie. The Suzuko Koseki Yuwa button charm would be part of a pincushion, and I think the gnomies would be made into a travel/weekender bag (because who doesn't love a roaming gnome!?)

  77. The gnomes would become a dress for DD, for sure. The charms would be for petting and staring at while I thought of what to make. But I do think patchwork throw pillows would be really cool.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. For sure I would use charms to sew a pillow - lately I made only pillows:) and 1 yard of gnomes is perfect for something to wear, but I can't decide right now if for my daughter or for me:)))

  85. What would I do with such adorable charms? I might add them to the collection of charms I have going for an eventual cozy couch quilt... or I might just pet them ;) The gnomes though would definitely go into my HS stash for my all-HS queen sized bed quilt... I'm almost there!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Wow Kori - amazing giveaway! I'd probably make quilts, baby blankets, pouches, you name it!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Wow, this is truly amazing! Thanks so much for the fun giveaway! I would definitely want to highlight the fabrics as best I could, so I'm thinking they would be fussy cut and worked into some patchwork/zakka-inspired project.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Definitely for quilting. Little Red Riding Hood and Alice in Wonderland just happen to be my little girls favourites at the moment so would probably work them into a quilt for the lounge - to snuggle up nice and warm this winter. Many thanks for the chance of winning. x

    ReplyDelete
