Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

I have lots of sewing (dresses, hobby horses, bags and more) to post, and lots of reading to catch up on, but as I've been missing in action from here lately, I thought what better way to get posting again than a giveaway.

Sew Mama Sew coordinate a twice yearly Giveaway Day for bloggers which is well worth checking out.

So what I have for you.........
firstly there's an unused/uncut Vogue pattern for a girl's occasion dress age 7-10.


Secondly I will include a Spanish pattern magazine 'Patrones' issue 307
I wanted this magazine so badly for the child's coat, that I got 2. There are no English instructions with this magazine, but if you have some experience you would be able to work from the pattern pieces.



Also included will be a lovely half yard (generously cut) piece of 60 inch wide Liberty Jersey (which I have prewashed) originally from Sewbox


How to enter:
Leave a comment to let me know what you would sew with this piece of Liberty jersey. (I'm looking for ideas, as I'm not sure what to make with it :-)

There's a bonus second entry if you have commented here before.

Be sure to leave contact details/ email
Giveaway is open internationally
I will randomly pick a winner Saturday 17th at 12 midday Irish time (GMT)

Good luck! Pin It Now!

  1. That's a lovely piece of fabric! Hmmm, maybe you could use the fabric for a child's top? Depending on the child's size, it might have to be used in conjuntion with another cut of fabric. There were shirts in the 01/11 issue of Ottobre Design that were part knit fabric and woven.

  2. I would probably use it in a lap blanket.

  12. I've never read a Patrones magazine, and would love to be entered into your draw! As for the jersey, I'd make it up into either a little girls dress, or perhaps a sleeveless tank for yourself. Liberty jersey is wonderful to sew and wear!

  20. I would be tempted to make something for my daughter-maybe a cute dress. But with such a ceveted piece of fabric, proly a cut top for myself. Some sort of flowy top. I remember seeing a cute one last summer on made by rae, I think

    ReplyDelete

  27. I'd use it for the front panel of a t-shirt for me! I love Liberty fabrics. I'd use coordinate solid jersey for the back and sleeves.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The fabric would be fun for a birthday gift tote. I would probably use it to make a placemat & napkin set for use throughout the year on "celebration" days (ie birthdays, dance recital day, earned a great report card day, etc)

    Best,

  30. Thanks for the chance to win.

  31. I would use the jersey for a top for my older girlie..it's so pretty, but not childish.

  33. I think a skirt would be darling!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh please enter me too! That's a gorgeous fabric - I think it would look really lovely as a top with gathered sleeve caps. If there's not enough fabric I can imagine it would look great as the front of a child's top or dress, with a coordinating plain jersey on the back. I'm not sure how big the print is but it could also be very nice for girl's leggings, to go with a special dress...

  35. I'd make a tote bag with the fabric. It's gorgeous!

  46. How about making a cardigan - hat set ... something like that? Or just a fun top.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think the fabric would make a nice dress for my granddaughter!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'd use the fabric to make a hoodie - the colored triangles on a white background remind me of a breezy seashore, somehow, and I think a hoodie can be so warm and cosy when there's some wind ashore! For the lining, I'd pick up the light blue from the main fabric and search for that light blue as a knit.

  50. I think with a half yard the options are either a sleeveless top (maybe a cowl neck would look cute) or a slim skirt (maybe there's enough fabric to make a little flippiness at the hem). Thanks for the chance at your giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  51. This would look cute as flared pants for my little girl

    ReplyDelete
  52. It'd be cute for a child's t-shirt with some little overalls.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Great fabric - it would be perfect for summer tops! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think that would be really cute made into a sleeveless top - or if you have enough a top with some little cap sleeves. Maybe pair it with a solid in either white or the color from one of the flags?
