Sew Mama Sew! Giveaway Day (closed)

12 Dec

Hello and welcome to all you Sew Mama Sew readers looking for my giveaway.  I’m Mary, I live in the UK and I sew, a lot!  I’d be delighted if you stayed a while and had a look round my blog, if you look here there is a great Christmas tutorial you might want to have a go at (this year or next!)

Here is a selection of some of the projects that I have completed this year:

Some finished pieces 2011

If you want to see more browse this blog and view my flickr stream.

Part way through this year I began to find lots of vintage sheets and have started to sew with them.  So I’ve not thought long and hard about what to giveaway because I know from experience that most of you would love to win some fabric… and today I’ve got a bundle of 10 gorgeous vintage sheet fat quarters that I have made up from my stash.  (If you don’t fancy sewing I’m also giving away a bag made from vintage sheets here).

If you’re in the UK you may well recognise some of these fabrics, if you’re not then you may well be excited by the opportunity to win some vintage sheet fat quarters from another country!

So what do you need to do to win?  Not much, just comment on this post telling me what you will make with the fat quarters if you win.

For an extra entry ‘like’ my facebook page or subscribe via email (that box over there on the top at the right) and leave another comment here telling me you’ve done so.

Please ensure that I have a way to contact you if you win. The giveaway closes on December 16th at 17:00 PST (01:00 Dec 17th UK time).  The winner will be drawn using Random Number Generator and emailed and announced here by December 18th.  I will ship internationally but can’t promise they will be with you before Christmas!

  1. Hi!
    What a lovely bundle of “fabric”, they remind me of the sheets at my grandmother. With some of them I´ll make some bibs to my little one, I´d probable sew a cover to my nursing pillow.

    Fingers crossed

  2. What a nice stash of vintage fabrics you’ve got there. I haven’t got much except for a couple of bed sheets from my mum and some thrifted pillow cases. Thanks for the chance.

  12. Oh, those are so pretty! First, I would probably just look at them a lot. That’s what I tend to do when I get new fabric. Then I would make aprons, and some cute little shirts for my girls.

  13. I would probably use them to make bags with or else make them into a patchwork dress for one of my daughters! Thanks for the chance!

  15. Oh, the things I’d make with such gorgeous vintage sheets! I think I might make them into a colourful skirt for myself, or maybe even a dress if combined with some suitable solids, or possibly a pretty patchwork purse.

  16. I would make a baby quilt for Shriners Hosp in Spokane.
    They do wonderful work for the sick kids….its amazing.

  26. Beautiful fabrics, Love vintage fabrics and linnens. I also would use it for a tablerunner or for pillowcases.

  28. Oh I do like those fabrics:) I think I would have to make something a bit quilty with them – thanks for your give away:)Dianna

  29. Vintage Sheets!!! I am just SO into them at the moment. I’ve been making curtains, shorts for my boys and applique for their t-shirts most recently. I imagine I’ll continue on in that manner, if I’m the lucky person. Hmmm, or maybe some cushions.
    Oh my, Randon Generator, please pick me! ?

  30. I would probably make either a bag, sm quilt, pot holders or something else that hits my fancy. Honestly rarely do I stick to my original plans for fabric, unless it is an intended gift.

  36. Since the quilting virus hit me, two years ago, I only make quilts, especially doll quilts. Today however I started a bag for my niece for Christmas. With your fabric I surely will make a doll quilt.

  43. ooh, they’re lovely! I’m not sure what I’d make–probably a tote bag because I carry one almost every day and then I could share the love of looking at them!!

  44. These are lovely! I think it would be fun to make a collection of cloth napkins that can be used when family and/or friends get together for a long weekend or holiday celebration. Since each napkin would be different, we wouldn’t have to wash them between meals or worry about using someone else’s dirty napkin during our time together!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway!

  45. I know what I would use them for. I have been saving all the squares of vintage sheets that come my way to make myself a quilt. I know that’s not fascinating, but I have never made myself a quilt before and I have been saving little vintage pieces for ages. Someday, I will have a quilt to throw on the couch – full of history and stories. Even if I don’t know what they are. Even if I don’t really *want* to know what they are. *ahem!*

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  46. What lovely FQs. I’m starting a collection of vintage sheets. It’s a pretty small collection thus far.

  48. Even though I would be tempted to stash until I find the perfect project for them (since they are so beautiful!) I would certainly make a purse for myself. SO very lovely! Thanks!

  50. I resisted and resisted, but if it’s still an open competition… I think it might be just the tonic to encourage Mrs Green’s new sewing creativity. Love to the kids.

  51. I would patchwork them all together and make teddy beds (toy hammocks) out of them. That way they still stay as housewares, but they get a new life! 😀

  52. What pretty fabric! I would use them to make pleats for some clutches I make as gifts.

  53. I’d make some makeup bags for me and my sisters (I think) 🙂

I love vintage sheets – I am making a set of drawer liners for my husband’s aunt for Christmas out of some (including some she gave me, which I think is kind of cool) – but of course I wouldn’t have these in time to include them. So I’m not sure what I would make out of them…but I know I would put them to good use! xo

  63. My best friend is from the UK. She moved to the states when she was 10, but even 16 years later, she can get very homesick when she sees things that remind her of her childhood. I would love to take these FQs and make a mini-quilt for her.

    Thank you for the chance to win!

  64. I would definitely be making a quilt. I’ve found a few this year and have been saving them up, but this would mean enough to actually get going!

  71. Hiya Mary

    Just realised I hadn’t entered. I am thinking ahead to spring/summer and I think some vintage bunting is called for with these fabrics with fabric flowers between each pennant. I also think I would like to make some quilted vintage iPhone cases. Thanks for the chance to enter

  72. I love mixing my vintage in with moderns in little patchwork items, pot holders, mini quilts, I love the mix of old and new!

  73. These are so adorable! I’d probably put a few into piles that already exist for planned quilts, some vintage prints would go beautifully, and the rest? I have to admit, I’d probably hoard them for a while and pat them and tell them they’re pretty. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  74. I’m in the mood to make a quilt. i think that is what I would use them in at this point.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  75. I have never sewn with vintage sheets, if I win these I would be making a quilt out of them. They are so pretty.
