Hey ladies!  I narrowly escaped a Hodag attack to make it back home in time to catch up on comments and have my mind blown over Jacinda’s nap mat! Today’s winner gets these three 9″x18″ pieces of wool-blend felt that Jacinda picked up from the Stitch Lab booth at Renegade Craft Fair Austin. There were so many hilarious comments on the White Trash BBQ but I choose this one from the Birds, Binoculars, and Trail Mix Game post:

Roxanne said: That’s a hoot! My daughter’s preschool class did something similar last year, though they went whale watching, rather than bird watching. If the kids enjoy this one, follow it up with whales!

Rozanne – my kid loves whales so I’m totally doing that!  Thanks for the great idea and the clever use of “hoot!” So, If that’s you, use this Contact Form to send us your address and your felt will be on its way!  Winners have 5 days to contact us with their address before forfeiting their prize to another lucky reader.

Ok, so brace yourselves girls. I can’t believe I’m even giving this away. Well, I bought like ten at Quilt Festival purposefully for the point of sharing with you, so it would be wrong to keep them, I guess.

Oh yes, it’s two fat quarters of the Original Far Far Away by Heather Ross, in DOUBLE GAUZE!! The blue features unicorns and is the same fabric that I made the original Pillowcase Dress from, and the other one features sweet frogs. This collection is pretty much impossible to find, but you can get a few pieces of the double gauze (the super sweet snails) and most of the Far Far Away 2 collection at Fabricworm here.
You enter this giveaway by leaving a comment on any post over the next week.  Make ’em funny, helpful, sweet or just plain weird. We’ll pick our favorite next Friday. Good Luck!




Today I just bought my first piece of fabric. Not as pretty as the stuff you use, but pretty enough to try and make one of those pillowcase dresses, that you say are so easy.
When I told my mom I wanted to borrow one of her machines because I really want to sew some stuff, she looked at me like "oh great you're going to start a bunch of stuff and never finish them" (I do this alot!) But I made my own baby wipes, some diaper doublers, some bunting for my youngest upcoming birthday, and a play tent for my oldest. So I think I can make a dress. My mom is proud that I have finished not just one project but many. I think we have come to new kind of mother-daughter bond.
Sorry for rambling, but buying that fabric was special to me and your blog is part of my inspiration to start and finish a project. Thanks a bunch


My little granddaughter loves it when I sew for her – what cute outfits I could make with these fabrics.


Something funny? Hmmm. nothing funny but I am giving away a baby quilt on my blog if you are interested. Thanks for the chance to win.


Oh no! Something else I need. When will the pretty things ever stop? I love your site and have made up several of your projects. They are very easy to follow, and my little beneficiary loves them all. Thanks. Written by Lexi, not Greg! Oh well.


Perfect inspiration for a long overdue makeover of my girls' shared room! These sweet prints would be a lovely start to some patchwork curtains I've been dreamin' up.


What nice fabrics! I am going to try out one of your hat patterns soon, this will be my first sewing project. If I succeed then I will be looking forward to try out one of your many other projects.
