My First Blog Giveaway!!!!

I am so excited for this - my very first blog giveaway!!! As many of you know, I have been obsessed with japanese kawaii fairy tale fabrics for awhile now. I have scoured shops and the internet and spent way too much on shipping from Japan and Australia to acquire what I believe to be a lovely little collection. Oh, and not to mention the wonderful ladies who have swapped some of these to me! I really, really love these fabrics.
I know a lot of you love them too! Most of these are out of print or really hard to find. There is Peter Pan, The Wizard of Oz, Sleeping Beauty, Goldilocks, Pinocchio and many more. And don't forget Little Red. I have the fairy tale quilt I plan to make for Lucy all mapped out in my head but with all my other WIPs and the holidays looming that isn't realistic right now. Sooo, I needed an excuse to cut them - you! I really want to share and see what someone else would come up with.
So here is the giveaway - I spent tonight cutting 5 inch charms out of all my favorites - 25 different prints in total. TWO SETS are up for grabs! To enter, all you need to do is leave a message here about what you would love to make with the charms. If you sign up to follow me, you'll get another entry. And of course, the 25 great gals who have already been gracious enough to follow me will be entered a third time! I am thinking I will have my 11 year old niece help me to draw winners, the random number generator intimidates me! Comments will close Sunday evening November 8th at 10 PM Pacific.
Thanks again to everyone bothering to read my postings here. I am still so very new to this crafty-sewing-blogging-quilting-mama business and so many of you have been such a great inspiration to me. All your support and constructive comments are always appreciated!

  1. HI Megan,

    What a very generous giveaway! Hmm... I think I would make a wall quilt or a throw for myself (not sharing) out of these if I won and would incorporate some solids with them.

    I am already a follower... I found your blog thru flickr and like you am a relative newbie and fabric addict!

  6. Gah ! Fabulous Fairytale Fun. Who could not love a wonderful giveaway like this. I definately know what I would be doing with these charms. I have wanted to make a placemats set with fairytales on it. With embroidery telling the story etc. Good dinner time reading ;) And everyone has a different story. Of course you need the coasters and maybe some servettes as well :D

  32. WOW, what a wonderful giveaway!! I don't have any of this fabric yet, but have been drooling over it for awhile now. What would I do with it, well honestly it would be a toss up between a quilt for my daughter's room or a dress for her. All those prints would be so cute on her and would make a lovely a dress to pass through the generations.

    I became a follower, which I am ashamed for not doing sooner. I have reading your blog for awhile now, so really should have done it already!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. ack! Okay, first...I LOVE your new snow white fabric...way to go! Second...what I wouldn't do to win this giveaway! WOOT! You have so many prints that I've been searching for! My little hush hush plan is to make a storybook baby quilt as we are trying to get preggers with a second child. obviously not so hush hush now, huh? xo

  34. What a cool giveaway! I'm always the last to know about cool Japanese prints - WIZARD OF OZ?! These prints would make a great I Spy quilt for my niece and nephew!

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I haven't even seen this stuff in person! I have no local sources for stuff like this and no budget, either. If I won I would probably want to use them in quilting, but would most likely keep them in my stash for a while and pet them every so often, then finally get around to using them to make a quilted gift for someone I KNOW would appreciate them! Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  36. thanks a bunch, megan..pretty generous of you! i'd make a quilt for sure...not sure what...i'd just let it come to me!

    ReplyDelete
  37. You know, I've never actually seen any of these fabrics but they look so pretty through the screen :) I'm thinking they'd make a really cool start for an i-spy quilt for my little princess :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. You know I covet your fairytale prints . . . I am collecting so I can make doll quilts for my daughter and three nieces and then a lap quilt with nursery rhymes and fairytales for my mom.

  44. I think they would make great button hair thingies. I think an embroidery from one of my Japanese embroidery books with the charms as alternate blocks or a piano key border would be great. So many ideas are inspired by fabric that cute!

  49. Hi Megan
    I've been popping in from time to time since I came across the amazing dress set you made for your little girl using petite ecole fabric on flickr.

    I'd use a some of the squares as features on bookcovers for my two favorite fairytale books which were my mum's when she was a girl. My girls would love them and it would be lovely to see the books become family heirlooms.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Wow, what beautiful fabric. They would make a wonderful quilt for my little girl - she's really into fairy tales these days!

  53. If I were to win these scrumptious prints, first I'd make a pillow case ALL my own to sleep on every night; then the rest I'd use to make a small tote bag or zippered pouch to carry with me all the time!
