  10. Well as this is such a generous giveaway, with large amounts of fabric I might have to make myself something to wear - a funky a-line wrap around skirt maybe and then some accessories - a bag, a notebook and file cover, a padded case for my netbook and a matching one for my phone. And finally for my sewing machine that has worked so hard making all this gorgeous fabric into pretties for me I would make a made to measure cover :)

  93. I would make all my christmas presents!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I would make a funky skirt or trousers in a mish-mash of colour for my little girl. She's the reason I started sewing again & actually went to classes and learned dressmaking so I could make her things! Instead I met someone in the classes who encouraged me to start selling the accessories I was making & Hootchie Mama was born. So now my poor baby never gets those quirky hanmade clothes I promised her as Mummy is too busy making things for everyone else. It would be my special gift to her.

    ReplyDelete

    I'd but the extra material to make a very covetable bag with Bird Tree as well.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  153. I would definitely make a quilt for one of my many neices - I have eight currently waiting for quilts - and one nephew - and I know which neice would really love these fabrics although I had better not say her name here in case I get held to it by the mother! Anyway, I know which one I'm thinking of! But that can wait until after Tom's Tufted Tweets Quilt anyway - my own kids do jump the quilt queue!
