Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day – now closed

Giveaway now closed.

Welcome to my blog and to the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.

I’m Mary, I live in the UK and I spend many of my spare hours sewing and a few of my spare hours searching for vintage sheet fabrics.

Over the last few years I have amassed quite a collection of vintage sheets. I make quilts with them; this is the last quilt I made using vintage sheets:

Vintage Sheet String Quilt

You can read more about it here.  The next vintage sheet quilt is already in progress, it’s a Retro Flowers quilt and currently looks a little like this:

Retro Flowers progress

I’ve set up an etsy shop selling some of my vintage sheet fabrics as charms, kits and FQ bundles.

Today I’m offering you the chance to win a £20 gift certificate to spend in my etsy shop:

  1. I really love vintage anything and it would be such a treat to have some of your kits! Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I think I would choose 5″ charm squares and some binding. Thank you for the chance to win!

  3. I’m really tempted by the 5″ charm squares. I LOVE charm squares. But you have a lot of very lovely fat quarters, too. (heh, lovely fat quarters!)

  4. I would buy as many of the 5″ charms as I could! Love vintage sheets!

  5. I would buy the green vintage sheet fat quarters and the blue and purple vintage sheet fat quarters. Thank you for the giveaway!

  6. Vintage sheet charms. I’ve lucked out with thrift store trips and have found a few really nice vintage sheets recently.

  7. I’ve never been lucky to find any cotton vintage sheets in charity shops – lots of polycotton, but no cotton. I’d probably pick some of the FQ bundles if I were the fortunate winner.

  8. Amazing fabrics! I’d go with the mustard/teal fat quarters. And then some more 🙂

  9. Shopping for fabric – charms, jelly rolls, anything. Bad habit that I have now acquired. I just love fabric. Vintage sheets are becoming more popular again. Thank you for being a part of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway and your generous gift certificate is surely appreciated. Merry Christmas.

  15. Hi Mary! I have to admit I have been following your blog for quite some time. I have been making frequent visit to my local thrift stores searching for vintage sheets & pillowcases.

  23. Before I start buying all of your vintage sheet bundles I think I’d like to make a bunting!

  24. Hi Mary! I would love any of your vintage sheet packs to make a quilt for my bedroom!

  25. I’d buy the blue pack for my friend who keeps on saying that she will make a quilt, but never gets around to it.

  26. The vintage charm squares are simply wonderful! I would definitely grab one of those. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  33. Charm packs, I do like fat quarters but absolutely love charm packs.

  34. I would put it toward a large charm pack set and some of the beautiful binding. Or maybe the baby quilt kit.

  35. First I always love what you make on Flickr and then I would probably get the 6″ square charm pack since I just found a quilt tutorial that uses 6″ charms and that would save me a load of cutting, lol.

  36. I love the variety in the charm squares, but there are some fat quarters there that look great too. Thank you for an awesome giveaway. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I’ll win.

  37. I’d probably buy the Vintage Pink Fat Quarters. Oh, I do hope I win. This is a fantastic giveaway!!

  44. I’d go through your fat quarters with a fine tooth comb in the hope that you have some prints that I haven’t already bought from you!

  45. I would spend it either on the charms or the fat quarters. The project I am slowly collecting for needs a lot of charms but I also need a good amount of larger pieces.

  50. I love the 3 Vintage FQ set that has blues and greens. Some fantastic prints in there.

  51. I love vintage sheets and have a collection myself. I am always on the lookout for blues and purples which for some reason are harder to fine in my area. So I would choose blue and purple fat quarters. Thanks for the chance to win.
