Bits n Bobs - Birthday Giveaway (Part 2)

Well as you may already know, my birthday is fast approaching. Wednesday is the day I am another year older - so I’m celebrating by holding a few giveaways here on my blog over the week.
I hope you have all entered my ”Friendship” Charm Pack Giveaway. If you haven’t entered yet, pop on over and enter. You never know your luck, right?
Todays giveaway, I have decided to call the “Bits n Bobs Giveaway”.
4 x F8th’s of bits n bobs you use while sewing. Well, 3 are sewing bits and the other is a gorgeous spotty fabric which goes so well, that I had to include it.

Bits n Bobs Giveaway 1

Plus, as I’ve now begun to add a few extra bits 'n bobs in my Store, I thought I’d include a Finger Presser and a pack of Hand Quilting needles in the bundle.

Bits n Bobs 2

Oh wow, isn’t that spotty fabric gorgeous? So bright, happy and completely delicious.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Entering my giveaway is SUPER easy.
Be a follower of my blog and then tell me:

What would you make with this fabric bundle?

I’m thinking it would make a very cute needle case… or three.

I would add it to other fabric to make a drawstring bag large enough to fit my fold up cardboard sewing/dressmaking cutting board into!

NurseBrandy said...

I would make an iron case/carrier with it!! I've been wanting to make one of those!

And happy birthday!!! My 40th was on Saturday. I hope your day was as good as mine was! :)

I definitely know what I would use the cream fabric for. It's the fabric I've been looking for to make my sewing caddy. My fat quarter just isn't quite enough! Thanks for the chance.

The Patch Craft said...

Sewing caddies to hold my pin cushion, needle case and tissue holders

Larissa said...

Follower ... When I saw those fabrics I immediately thought of using the first three (from the left) for a few display/storage buckets ala Jenny of Elephantz ... the last one would be perfect in a little bag or phone pouch too!! ... These are gorgeous fabrics ... thanks for making these one of your giveaways!! ... And Happy Birthday for Wednesday!!!

Jess @ Scrappy n Happy said...

It has to be something sewing related! I really would like to make a thread catcher bin!

Lee said...

I would make a cover for my sewing machine! thanks!

Teresa F. said...

I would make a mat and thread catcher for my sewing table.

Mhairi said...

I would love to have one of these nearby when I sew - http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2011/12/in-case-of-emergency-.html
SO I think it would be appropriate to make it with sewing fabrics. What was left I would use to make a sewing accessories set - pin cushion, scissor holder/keep and thread catcher. And I would use the dotty fabric to tie it all together.
What a great giveaway.

Faddict said...

As I just got a shiny new sewing machine for Xmas, I need a new cover for it, I want to make something with patchwork so this sewing themed fabric would be perfect!
