Giveaway Day is here!

I thought I would join in with Sew, Mama, Sew! giveaway day on May 6th. We love to craft so I knew this would be a great way to have a de-stash of my sewing supplies, therefore I have some Sewing + Craft Supplies up for grabs and I am happy to send worldwide.

As well as crafting with my children I also love to make things for them. I can’t resist buying eye-catching prints and have a great stash of vintage and modern prints. I’ve selected 12 pieces to giveaway, each piece measures at least 20cm x 15 cm, which means they are great for patchwork or little stash busting projects.

fabric bundle

The fabrics feature a random selection of children’s fabrics and novelties, and I’ve included some of my toddler’s favourites (Thomas & Friends, Toy Story and Disney Cars) so there is a good selection for boys and girls.

Don’t forget to check out the other great prizes people are offering as part of Giveaway Day, which can be found here.



To win the selection of vintage and modern fabrics simply leave me a comment and tell me your favourite tv or film character. My toddler is addicted to the Disney Pixar film Cars so my favourite character would have to be Lightning McQueen.

Small print:

The prize consists of a selection of vintage and modern fabrics. The giveaway is open until May 10 at 5 p.m. PST. The winner will be selected at random from all entries received and notified by email or their twitter handle by May 12th and the items will be sent by May 15th. The prize is as stated: no cash alternatives are available. The winner will be announced on this post.

The winner is Michelle @ needle and nest
