It's Giveaway Day!!

***winners have been contacted and announced here***


Hi and thanks for stopping by. It's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day - one of my favorite days of the year! What a great way to discover new blogs, see what other people are making, and maybe score a little swag :)

This time around I've decided to give away two bundles of sewing happiness.

The first is two fat quarters (18" x 22") Dutch Door Press fabric from Kokka of Japan. It's available in my shop, Mini Mushrooms, but here's your chance to get some for free. It's absolutely lovely 85% cotton 15% linen lightweight canvas. Great for accessories, home decor projects, even quilting.



Here are more photos so you can see just how fabulous this print is:




The second little bundle of goodies includes a Riley Blake Designs Stacker (5" squares) of Lila Tueller's Bohemian Festival line. The colors are gorgeous - bright pink, sky blue, lovely green. I'm also throwing in two spools of Presencia 50 wt cotton thread in bright yellow and peach. Made in Spain, this is my favorite cotton thread!




To enter, simply leave a comment below and answer this question:

What is your favorite thing to sew?

I'll select two winners at random on December 7 at 5 p.m. PST. I'm happy to ship internationally (hooray!). The first winner will be allowed to choose which prize they prefer. the second winner will get the remaining bundle.

Thanks for participating and thanks for checking out my blog. Best wishes and good luck!

-Annik
