Fabric Giveaway!

This giveaway is CLOSED at 5pm PST on Sunday December 11th. The winner is Jennifer Blanton! Congratulations! Thanks to all that participated in the giveaway, 50 people!  Just a note, if you commented with your email address, I removed it to keep your information safe! Thanks. Samantha

I am excited to be participating in the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day this year.  It's hard to believe that I started this blog 4 years ago to make closet space for my little one who is now four and a half and I have another little one that is two and a half years old!  On the 4 year anniversary of this blog, I am very excited again to join in this year's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.  My blog was started when I lost my crafting room when my son was born. It was an attempt by me to clear out my substantial craft supplies. I am still working on it. ;)


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 in particular.  I was thinking of making a quilt with these fabrics, but somehow my quilt never came into being. Sometimes, 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 joy. 

My giveaway prize features fabric from my stash.  Three pieces of assorted mix.  I apologize for the poor photos.  I took them when my kids were sleeping.  1) A green fabric with gold star like pattern. 2) A peach and burgundy piece from a half apron that never was made.  3) A white fabric with green leaves that was a curtain in my old office before kids.. :)

 A closeup of the patterns:

It's all packaged up and ready for a winner!

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.  This is my way of thanking the crafting community. I have learned so much from tutorials around on the web. So thank you! Samantha

To win, please leave a comment below from December 7th to December 11th 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.  I delete all comments with email addresses for your protection after the winner is chosen.  Thanks.  A random winner will be picked with the help of random.org by December 12th.  If the winner does not respond in 5 days another winner will be pick (Sorry).  US winners only.  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. :)

Some of my better ideas on this blog:
Organizing my fabric
Organizing my fabric has made my crafting time so much more efficient and pleasant.  I can find everything!

Organizing fabrics with fabric swatches
If you want to take just a bit of fabric swatch to the fabric store and also want to know what fabrics you already have, this is helpful.

  1. I usually just buy fabric because I love it, then the project comes later. I make quilts mostly so it usually ends up in a quilt I want to make. Thank you so much for the giveaway.

  9. I have SO much fabric that is still looking for its purpose. I was a crazy sale shopper when I first started and I bought everything that I even slightly liked. It is out of control. I am much more tame now, but I have a monster stash to work through.
