Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day/Week

THIS GIVEAWAY IS Officially Closed! Joan G won my fabric giveaway!  Thanks to all that entered.  I deleted everyone who posted an email address to protect it. Thanks. 

It's hard to believe that I started this blog 2 years ago to make closet space for my little one who is now two and a half and I have another little one that is 6 months old!  On the 2 year anniversary of this blog, I am very excited to join in this year's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day. 



As this blog is about clearing out my craft closet, I am happy to send along a package with fabrics from my stash to a good home. I bought all of these fabrics with no project in particular so they've never come to anything.  I think I was thinking of making a quilt with some and an apron with the red.  I liked the fabric and it was a good deal so I bought it.  I just haven't made the projects.  Too many projects, so little time.  :)  It's been difficult to get projects done around here with the two kids.  I still try to craft when I can.  It brings me so much satisfaction. 

My giveaway prize features about 1/2 yard pieces of fabric from my stash.  To the winner, I hope you can find some good use out of these fabrics.  I would love to see what you end up making.  Send me a photo if you remember.  Thanks.  Samantha

The white fabric did not photograph well so here is a close up.  It has overlapping circles on it.  

To win, please leave a comment below from December 8th to December 12th at 5pm PST for a chance to win.  You can write your email at ____ dot com so your email won't be picked up by spammers.  Thanks.  Winner will be picked by December 14th.  Sorry no international shipping.  

Good luck!

A question for you:
Do you ever buy fabric without any specific intention or do you always have a project in mind when you buy fabric?  


Thanks for stopping by and thanks for helping me clear out my craft closet. :)

  1. I buy a lot of fabric without a project in mind. I'm trying to change that, and only buying for specific projects, but it's challenging. I have 3 kids and my youngest just turned 2 so I really relate to your so many projects so little time comment.

  2. Lol I always buy fabric just because I like it and when it comes time to make something I never have the coordinating fabric to go with it.

  3. I sure have bought fabric without a project in mind! Some are too lovely to pass up. I will always find a use for them later!

  4. I often just buy fabric -- if I have a general idea of what I want to use it for I make a guess as to how much I need!

  11. Fabric purchases come both for specific projects and for no reason at all except that I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I buy fabric because of how it looks. I'll figure out what I'll use it in later. :) (At least, that's how it usually goes - lol)!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I used to be really good at only buying fabric for a purpose, but lately have not been doing so well. Black Friday really beat me up. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Most of the time I am an impulse buyer. If I really like I buy a lot of it

  15. I often buy fabric without any specific project in mind. I make a lot of scrappy quilts (although they're not strictly from "scraps"!) so it works for me.

  16. I usually have a project in mind when buying a fabric but there are times when a sale or particular print is irresistible even when I don't have plans for it.

  17. I do buy fabric without a project in mind - I wish I didn't though! I have a fabric addiction ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I usually buy fabric that catches my eye, then when I want to make something with it I have to go buy more to match up.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I generally buy fabric with a certain purpose in mind, but that being said, if it is a super deal and I think it is pretty fabric I will buy it just because. grecomara at gmail dot com

  20. I often buy fabric just because I like it. I like scrap quilts so almost anything will go. Thanks for the opportunity.

  21. I buy fabric when I love it, and the price is right. If I don't have an idea in mind, I buy 2 yards - it's enough to do most basic projects with !

    ReplyDelete
  22. I do both...mostly just to add to my stash when I find some on sale!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm new to sewing, so I've not bought a bunch of fabric yet, but I've seen so much that I LOVE that I have no idea what I would do with it, and yet I'd love to receive it.
    I think that red bandanna fabric would be a great fabric to pair with denim for an apron, or quilt, or pillow, or fabric baskets...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I do both. Sometimes I grab fabric just because it strikes my fancy and I know I'll be kicking myself over it later and sometimes I buy specifically for a project.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yea I do it all the time.. I need a fabri-holics meeting please

    ReplyDelete
  26. I buy fabric to "build my stash" but honestly, whenever I make a project I usually end up buying specifically for it. Building my stash is just an excuse to decorate my craft room which is just and excuse to hoard.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I do buy fabric without a plan. I buy it because I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I do both. I usually buy fabric because I like it, but sometimes I do buy for a specific project

    ReplyDelete
  29. I try not to buy fabric without a project... but it happens! Some fabric is just too beautiful not to buy.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I buy both ways. Some for projects others that I just have to have!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I buy fabric just because I can't help myself!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I buy fabric with specific projects in mind, but they sometimes end up in my stash. I used to buy online, but those often ended up in my stash when they arrived and turned out to be a different color than the picture.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I usually buy with only a purpose in mind... but sometimes that purpose changes! thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I try to buy for a specific project and make it but it doesn't always happen

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  36. I used to buy fabric willy nilly but I put a moratorium on fabric purchases! But that doesn't mean I can't WIN some!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I buy fabric because I like it and then think of a reason to use it later.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I used to buy fabric without a project in mind, but now I have several shelves of fabric to pull from, so I restrain my myself and only buy what I need for a specific project. I'm at an age when I need to start thinking about what kind of mess my children will have to deal with when I'm gone. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I do buy fabrics with no plan, usually bundles though which helps when I do eventually use them.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I often buy fabric with no specific plan, which is why I can no longer walk through my sewing room.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I try to always have a project in mind before I buy since space is limited

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't get to shop alone at fabric stores so typically wait until I have something in mind.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I very seldom buy fabric with a particular project in mind! I know where the "holes" in my stash are, and I frequently purchase fabric on sale that is not like what I have at home. Happy holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh I definitely buy fabric just because I like it. I've gotten a little better about not doing that tough. Sometimes it's hard to resist!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I see fabric.... I like it.... I buy it.... I have a problem

    ReplyDelete
  46. I try not to buy more than a half yard of any fabric without a plan for it, but I love scraps and I will always end up trying to make room for more if I come across them.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I buy fabric because it attracts me with its pattern or color. Then, I shop my stash when I decide to make a quilt. About the only fabric I buy for a specific project is backing. I buy mostly fat quarters or half yards.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I buy fabric in small quantities, but lots of variety because I love scrappy quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Most of the fabric I buy withou any specific project in mind. I buy it because I like it.

  54. I try to only buy fabric when I have a project in mind, but the more I quilt the more I buy fabric just because.....it's pretty, it's calling my name, peer pressure, it's fabric therapy, it needs a forever home......I can't help it anymore! :)

  55. Often buy fabrics with no project mind. Sometimes no project is good enough. :P
