Heather Ross Plus a Gagillion SewMamaSew Giveaway

*Update* Giveaway and comments are CLOSED. Thanks so much everyone for the great comments I have laughed and loved reading them all. The winner will be announced by December 9th. Good luck!




I haven't posted anything I'm working on because I've been sucked into the worm-hole that is the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day (week). Here are previous things I've worked on: Photography Tutorial, Scrappy Stash QAL, Merrily We Sew Along and I have a few pics up on Flickr. I make so many more things that I've not posted yet, ah well.

I figure I'll throw my hat in again, am giving away a child's shirt here, would you like some of the Heather Ross Gnomes and Puppies? If you've been wanting some forever, I have some to share! If you're not familiar with 'em these fabrics are out of print and getting really hard to find. I ordered a little packet with the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway in mind and they are tinyish pieces about charm size.



I'm not competitive but I love winning :) so I want lots of you to win. How does 6 or 7 winners sound? I'd like for you to win something you like so I chose a variety of fabric. I've got pre-washed: a fat quarter print from Children at Play that's the best shade of aqua,  fat quarter of French General La Petite Ecole. There are also two fat quarters- Anna Maria Horner and Amy Butler fabrics-Loulouthi and Gypsy Caravan that are unwashed. I received them as bonus in a fabric order and would like them to go to someone that loves them before I start playing with them and bleach :)

How about stripey fabric for binding? Here's about a 1/2 yard of Riley Blake. Then this lovely purple vintage lace is up for grabs and there are at least a few yards. (The measuring tape is just there for scale.)


If you're working on an I-Spy quilt or would like to start one :) I'll send along a package of I-Spy scraps that will probably include the prints pictured and some others. Thennnnnn, how about an official Star Wars fat quarter? I'm sure you know someone who likes Star Wars. 



How to win? Just tell me an outfit you'd like to wear out in public if it were socially acceptable. Birthday suits and pajama's don't count :) I'd also like if you'd come back to visit me or follow but it's not required. First winner gets first choice of fabric and on down the line. Good luck!

Thank you all so much for visiting I am loving reading the answers!

Giveaway ends December 7th and the winner's in alphabetical order are Catherine, Carolyn, Lynn, Nancy, Sangeetha, Tiffany and Tina.

  1. Damn, pyjamas was totally my first choice. My grandma used to have a patchwork housecoat made of EPP'd hexies in all kinds of scrappy fabrics. I would totally wear that in public if I could get away with it. FYI, I follow you through google reader.

  2. A quilted tailored jacket out anna marie horners field study... ok maybe I am a little obsessed with that line. but I'd totally rock it somehow.

  10. I would straight up dress like Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman every day. I love the "casual pioneer" style. Do you realize how big those pockets are?! You can fit a ton of stuff in there and nobody would know what you're hiding.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Such cute fabrics!!

    Hmmm, I think I would wear some old school prairie dresses if it were socially acceptable for a 28 year old! ha! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well, if pajama bottoms don't count, then how about a tank top and leggings? I know I "could* wear those, but I never would. But around the house, they are so incredibly comfortable.

    Love, love, love those Heather Ross puppies!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love wearing sweatpants and a tee. I hate the bra thing too!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

I actually managed to get a scrap of the blue fabric with a single gnome on it and am using it in a quilted pocket.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  21. Haha. Camelama is hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks for the giveaway! I'd definitely wear yoga pants all the time. :)

    ReplyDelete

  36. i'm always cold this time of year so i would dress head to toe in a quilted down jumpsuit that would make me look like the michelin man.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'd like to wear more sundresses. I think they are more comfortable in hot and humid weather. It is hard to wear them casually without everyone asking you why you are so dressed up!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ooh, I'm jealous of my 3yo that she gets to wear tutus and twirly skirts and dresses everyday and people think she's adorable! I'd like to have a chance to do that, but I don't think people will find me particularly adorable in them :)

    Great question, thanks for the chance to win!

  60. hah I almost forgot to answer because I was reading everyone's responses - good question! and lovely giveaways... I already verge on being socially unacceptable because I wear yoga pants and t-shirts almost everywhere (just so comfortable!) but what I'd REALLY like to wear are huge men's clothes - jeans and sweaters. they just look so much more comfortable than the jeans and tops I squeeze into!

    ReplyDelete

  78. I would go totally loose and elastic waist- if there was a waistband. In reality, if I didn't have a waist band on my clothes, I probably wouldn't have one on my body either. Love the fabric. Thanks for participating in the Giveaway Day.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Oh sheesh not pajamas? hmm Ok my husband got me a cat kigurumi costume which people DO wear outside in Japan, and its sure too warm and bulky to be pajamas, so if I could get away with wandering around with that on, I totally would!

  108. I think I would love to dress like the woman in Downton Abbey, but heck, I have four kids and no Anna,
    so how am I supposed to do so? And what about the washing?

    When I come home, I really like to put on sweats, and old t-shirt and a warm knitted vest above. Sounds awful? Yes, and it looks awful,too. But it is very comfy and warm.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I would love to wear those Mexican embroidered dresses every day. They're like pajamas, but beautiful. I'm pretty sure I'd get weird looks, and they're not really conducive to the winter. Otherwise, I would totally rock them. Thanks for such a generous giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I wish I still had the... appropriate places to wear some of the crazy stuff I had in college. Or even just the really lovely felted flower garland that I bought for myself at a holiday gift fair but feel just a tiny touch too silly wearing it out.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I would wear costumes whenever possible. I'm pretty geeky, but not quite geeky enough to cosplay, so the only time I dress up is Halloween. I would like to dress up at least once a month in costume and not be committed to a mental asylum.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Long johns. In waffle weave. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  131. I'd wear my husband's well loved flannel shirt, that is missing a large portion of the left sleeve. It is so soft and comfy, but looks like someone got into a fight with a dog and lost.

    ReplyDelete
  137. What a fun give away. I used to be in a punk band and now that i'm in my 30s I can't bring myself to throw out the crazy outfits I would wear on the stage. It might be fun to wear them again.
