School Days giveaway


**THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED**

Welcome to my giveaway offering as part of the Quilter's Blog Hop Party!

If you are new here please stop and have a look around my blog and if you're a regular then hello again! I will be having yet another giveaway next week so stick around...

Today I'm giving away some of my favourite fabric from School Days by American Jane Patterns for Moda. I have used this line recently in a couple of projects:





Even though it's hard for me to part with this fabric I rarely seem to use red in my sewing, so I'm giving away these 4 fat quarters:


You have two chances to win:

* First leave a comment letting me know a fashion disaster from your school days. I could use a good laugh.
For example, for me it was wearing hair scrunchies - an eighties disaster! And yes I even made them. Oh dear!

* Second (optional chance) - be a follower of this blog (GFC, RSS, email) and let me know in another comment.

**SORRY THE GIVEAWAY HAS NOW CLOSED**

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure I can contact you - probably best to leave your email address in one of the comments (my last giveaway I had several people that didn't and if I can't contact you then you will not win!!).

The giveaway is open to international entries and will be open until 15th December, when the winner will be announced and chosen by Random.org.

Good luck and make sure you check out all the other fab giveaways too!

  9. My fashion disaster would be that we used to use safety pins on our jeans and pin the jeans tight from the knee to the ankle so they kind of puffed out at the knee but were tight at the bottom. If I had a photo I'd show you - seeing really is believing (us Canadian girls sure knew how to dress eh??!!!)

  10. I am a aGFC follower and red is one of my absolute fav colours!! Fingers crossed!!

  11. I have two terrible, terrible fashion disasters to share.

    The first was in fifth grade. We got new winter coats every year and my parents didn't make a lot of money, so they were pretty frugal. But I saw a long yellow puffy coat with a turquoise and yellow scarf at the department store that I HAD TO HAVE! My parents tried to talk me out of it, but I sulked for days over it. Finally my mom relented and took me back to get it. I wore it to school the next day and kids called me "banana." I never wore it again. My kids love to hear that story over and over.

    The other is when I was in my mid-twenties and getting a divorce. Some friends of mine from high school are in a pretty famous rock band (I dated their older brother in high school). Well, they were playing a concert in San Diego so I went to see it. I was literally the only person old enough in the whole place to have an alcoholic drink. All their fans were obviously high school aged or younger, with mom and dads sitting around everywhere waiting for them. It was fun that I got to go backstage and hang out for a while. When I got home and was walking through the parking lot, my butt felt a little cold and when I reached back to smooth my pants, they had literally split down the butt crack at some point that evening. I really hope it wasn't at the concert and it was in the car on the way home, but I don't have any way of knowing. I never wore pants that tight again!It was a turning point in my life--the first time I ever felt old.

    Those are my two disasters! Can't wait to read what others wrote!

  12. There is photographic evidence of me wearing red polyester bell-bottoms back in the 70s. I was young and not to be held responsible for what I was made to wear (they were pretty horrible, but I look so happy wearing them!).

    ReplyDelete
  13. I am a happy follower of your blog - love the inspiration you provide!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lovely fabrics! Ummm, school fashion disasters...where do I start. I think every day from age 11 to age 15 just about covers it... Probably the best was when I talked my friend into dying my (dark brown) hair blonde, and it went kind of orange and horrible. Glasses, braces, oversize hoodies and flared jean completed that delightful look. Honestly, the hair was so bad my Dad paid for me to have it dyed back to brown at a hairdresser because my Mum hated it so much!

    ReplyDelete
  15. My most memorable fashion disaster happened when I was in 5th grade. I always made my own clothing and a fellow snarky girl in the class asked me if I had made my skirt. I replied that I had and she said...w\"well, I can tell because your darts are not the same length." Trust me..every dart since has matched perfectly.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Permed hair! Ugh! Thanks for the great giveaway Lucy!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I crimped my hair, pegged by pants, and wore Zubaz parachute pants willingly. What was I thinking?!

    ReplyDelete
  18. And I'm a happy and 'old' follower !

    ReplyDelete
  19. I used to love to experiment with my hair. Most of it qualifies as a fashion disaster!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Fashion disaster! My daughter and dear daughter and love finally saved me from mine. As a homeschooling mom to my kids, I started wearing old lady vests and sweaters much too young. I also had a hairstyle that included what my kids lovingly called the POOF! They talked me into updating and now at 55, I look younger than I did at 40! LOL! Gotta love honest loving kids!

  22. My mom made a pair of culottes for me (from a brown calico) when I was in 6th grade. They were horrible, but it would have broken her heart if I didn't wear them or refused them, so I had to wear them to school. Kids are mean, and I'll leave it at that.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm a follower; thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I had pink shiny stirrup pants. Enough said.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Fashion disaster - but still kind of cool (I think now) was wearing the crocheted pants and various matching vests and skull caps that my Grandma crocheted for me ... our of Phentex! If you don't know what Phentex is, trust me that it's not natural in any way. My Mom sewed shorts to line the bits that were best not revealed. I was stylin', I tell you!

    By the way, that was the early 70's.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Of course you have to have a short shirt and a long jacket! lisaursino@msn.com

    ReplyDelete
  27. When I was a freshman in high school, I had the exact same Badger sweatshirt as one of the senior boys. One day we both wore it on the same day, since our lockers were close, we pretended not to notice all day. After that, I waited til he wore his then I wore mine the next day :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks for lovely giveaway fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think I was a walking fashion disaster from age 10 through 13. My folks didn't have much money back then, so my attempts at fashion were all poor I mutations of the real thing... Which looked awful when you consider that it was the late '80s/early '90s at the time. I can still remember wanting an Esprit bag like all the cool girls used to carry their books at school back when I was about 12. My mom got me a generic pink duffle bag instead, which I loathed but carried around anyway out of obligation and lack of other options. I was mortified! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  30. My fashion disaster involves neon. What on earth possessed my parents to let me buy that off the shoulder sweatshirt with Hello in neon across the front? Throw in the slouchy socks and a banana clip for my hair...and those huge square glasses, remember with the arms that started at the bottom of the frame?

    How did I survive highschool?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm back to let you know I'm a follower.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I had a neon striped sweater, it made you blind and I loved to wear it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I tried cutting my own hair --- in the mirror. Yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  34. My parents weren't rich, and we went to a school that had school uniform. But at the weekends I remember bell bottom trousers that had so much fabric in them, I looked like a walking tent!

    ReplyDelete
  35. School fashion disaster? Hmmm - everything about the uniform!

    ReplyDelete
  36. haha - the 80s. I don't think we thought it was a disaster at the time though, did we??? ;) Using so much hairspray that I got hairspray build up flakies?? eeeew

    ReplyDelete
  37. I follow you via google reader.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I remember a time when I was about 19 in Canada when white tights were in fashion. Why?! Looking back they were freaking horrendous.

    ReplyDelete
  39. What about culottes (not even sure that's spelt right). I had a fairly festive pair of them when I was about 13: thankfully no photographic evidence!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I expect I have always been a fashion disaster. I do remember those jackets with padded shoulders, they were horrid, and I had more than one. Lovely giveaway, thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  41. And yes, i follow your lovely blog.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I had this giant stuffed frog - I think it was originally a washcloth type of thing - and I used to wear it in my hair. I wish it had just been scrunchies, those would be easier to live down. The frog was just me being weird.

    ReplyDelete
  43. And yes I follow your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Fashion disaster - when trying to be cool rather than me. That is why getting older is a blessing as I don't really care what people think, as I am comfortable being me. thanks for a great giveaway. I have enjoyed reading others comments too. Di x

    ReplyDelete
  45. Of course I follow you, lovely Lucy.

    ReplyDelete
  46. A purple plastic maxi trench coat. Need I say more?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Where do I start?

    purple lycra hotpants? Not at school you understand as it was strictly uniform only!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Fashion disasters - the 80s generally! I must be about your age. Hair scrunching I made myself, shoulder pads in windcheaters, acid wash denim, fluro bobby socks.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I was well into Grunge at school so for the whole of year 10 and 11 I insisted on wearing a holey jumper like Kurt Cobains, 10 hole DM's and shaved my hair at the back. Not a good look. I got mistaken for a boy many times.

    ReplyDelete
  50. And, of course, I follow your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I also did the scrunchy thing! Other than that I can't think of anything but I was never interested in fashion so everything I wore was probably a disaster...but not as much of a disaster as it would have been if I'd worn bottle tops on my shoes (Bros fans, I think) or had multiple pony tails in my hair...

    ReplyDelete
  52. I think "skorts" qualifies as a fashion disaster!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I follow by GFC and email

    ReplyDelete
  54. My biggest (but not only!) disaster was a bubble perm!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Leg warmers!! Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  56. When I started school it was cool to have the fattest tie possible, and leave an inch sticking out the bottom.....by the time I left, it was cool to have a very skinny tie - with a teeny, tiny knot!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I went through a phase where I wore men's flannel shirts over everything for a year, not so bad except I'm short and petite and I wore my Dad's XXL shirts! It was bad. I have pictures that you'll never ever see :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Well, I graduated high school in 1970, so my schooling was in the 60s. Probably everything I did or wore was a fashion disaster. All my dresses were homemade...and no one taught me to shave my legs. So embarrassing!

    ReplyDelete
  59. For me it's those long scrunchy socks!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I had high 80's bangs that fell flat after about 10 mins. Oh and when I was even younger I had feathered sides that never matched. What a fashion misfit!!! Thanks for the chance to win! courtneysews at gmail dot com

  67. I had a frizzy perm - on fair hair, so I looked like a poodle or, as someone kindly told me, a toilet brush!

    Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I had big permed hair! Yikes! Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hmmm..where do I start. Same color top and pants i.e. purple jeans purple tee shirt - tucked in no less. Flannel with the thermal arms and hoodie and big baggy jeans. SCRUNCHIES - I too have been a victim if the scrunchy and the big hair..

    ReplyDelete
  77. too much fun reading these. i say poodle perm WITH bangs! shoulder pads and wearing a jacket like that as a teenager to look adult!

    ReplyDelete

  79. I am a follower...but I'll deny the whole mullet thing!

    ReplyDelete
  80. My disasters would be from the late 60's and early 70's. We wore dresses so short that is was hard to move without showing everything. I also spent much time in soup can rollers trying to straighten my very curly hair, I was not too successful. I did fit in great in the 80's because I looked like I had permed my hair and it was all natural.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I am a new follower of your blog.

  82. I think we used to roll our jeans and pull our slouch socks up over them. =) Do you remember that?!?!?! =)

  86. Well, I definitely didn't think it was a disaster at the time, but I had a Gap outfit that I loved: a plaid skirt with a turtleneck and a cooridinating vest. I had the matching felted bolo hat and matching legwarmers! I thought it was incredibly cool!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I follow you by email which I love thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Fashion disaster? Well it has to be the 50s and 60s. Sorry by the 80s I was a Mum. My late father made me wear these awful blue and white shoes in the Summer and black and white in the winter. i am American so these darn shoes are shown on movies but trust me nobody but me wore them! I have lived in the England since I was a teenager.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Fashion Diaster: I would say the teased up hairsprayed stiff bangs & pants that were folded over then rolled up. Funny but now "skinny" jeans are in. I choose not to participate & have found that fashion doesn't interest me now. I lost interest around late high school years. So, technically Im probably currently a disaster. I am a blue jeans & t-shirt kind a gal. Aparrish1113@yahoo.com

  90. 70's fad Platform shoes...it was a mistake to wear them to science class where the teacher used me to demonstrate just how poor a center of gravity they gave me. I had liked those shoes until that moment:)!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I just signed up, you sound like a fun person to follow!

    ReplyDelete
  92. oh god, Lucy, I was just one big walking fashion disaster. I had this pair of shorts in the late 80s. Pale, pale denim, ripped and patched with bandanas. But I did such an awful job that there was this big rectangular patch right on my ass. I wore those on a trip to the UK with my folks and I can't believe they let me out of the car in them!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Thanks for being the fun blog hop. When I was in grade school and middle school I always had some kind of ribbon in my hair. I mostly wore pony tails. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  94. I follower by email, easiest for me to follow that way.

    ReplyDelete
  95. No fashion designer disaster that I can think of. I have become a new follower and will definitely be back again to visit. Your red fabric will be appreciated very much by anyone of us. I can think of lots of quilting ideas. Red is bold and beautiful. Just in time for the holidays - table topper, runner or even placements. Thank you for sharing and giving us all a chance to win. Happy holidays.

  97. I have 2 words for you 'White Rain'

    ReplyDelete
  98. I wore hair scrunchies too, and still do in fact. I think they look good on me. ;-)

    I cringe and almost get a stomach ache just thinking about some the pants and skirts I wore back then with their tight, tight wastebands! What was I thinking??? I know what it was - I wished that I was skinnier than I actually was.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I thought I was so cool starting middle school with my DARE T-shirt, doggie tag friendship necklaces, and the baggiest jeans I owned. Mind you, I'm a female, and at the time I had very frizzy hair, complete with bangs and ginormous glasses that went down to the bottom of my cheeks. Classic. :) Thanks for such a generous giveaway!

    OK, so here's the picture, we're talking late 80s, early 90s:

    Shell suit, top half zipped and tucked under, don't worry be happy t-shirt, baseball boots with the tongues out, bum bag. Need I say more? OK, poodle perm, fringe sprayed up high....

    I'm so ashamed!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Lucy, you know I would follow you anywhere. In the '80s I always had the frizziest perms. Ugh. Those pictures are super ugly.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Horrors from days gone by will always be home hair permanents and to make it even more frizzy, I would use the dryer hose to dry my hair.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I had to wear dark dresses, hugs

    ReplyDelete

  112. I am so ashamed to tell you that I had a pair of parachute pants. Do you know what those are? In my family we called them "Beth's plastic pants"--but not in a mocking way, and that didn't stop me from wearing them. I shudder to remember that.

  122. One day at school I had to go the bathroom, but I couldn't get the zipper down on my pants. I had to go back to the teacher and ask for help. We ended up having to cut them open. I had to wait in the bathroom for another pair of pants to get to the school. What a bad day!

    ReplyDelete
  123. I think my Mum love of one side ponytail was a low point, as much as pink jumpers coordinates with emerald velvet trousers - special.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I love red fabric and know where I could use them. In junior high we had a sewing class. I made a wrap around jumper. Only problem was when I wore it, it didn't stay shut if I was outside running or the wind was blowing. Only wore it once even tho it was pretty fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  125. where to start... jelly shoes, rolling jeans, pink legswarmers. there are so many.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Velour pants, a matching fuzzy sweater, and white keds!

  127. I too was a victim of the scrunchie. I used mine to put my hair in a high, crimped, side ponytail :/. I think I actually saw some at a store not long ago...maybe they're making a comeback?

  130. Okay, first you have to know that this was the early mid '60s. I put my hair in a ponytail, put a hairnet on it to make a bun, and put twist-in "gems" in it! Stop laughing--other girls were doing it, too! Plus the 5, 6 or 7 petticoats we wore all at once! 8-)

  132. I love the red fabric so thank you for the giveaway.
    One thing I remember about my school days was the time we would tease our hair to make it stand up and look fuller. When I think about these times,I think of Prisilla and Elvis.

    Hmmm.,.5th grade, around 1981, I had a pastel rainbow button up shirt that I wore with pale yellow knickers...yep...knickers! I blame my mom. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  137. I would guess those things called Hot pants- not so hot if you didn't have great legs and I have legs like tree trunks. LOL
    Thanks for participating in the blog hop.

  145. Actually, one of mine is hair scrunchies too. I think I must have made 25 of them (which is why I nearly burst into laughter when my 8 year old daughter asked if she could make one a few weeks ago!).

    ReplyDelete
  146. All these crack me up. I think I was guilty of almost all of them. Also, spraying the sides of my hair into "wings" to frame my face, and tucking in only the front of my oversized tshirt and blousing it out all poofy... Thanks for the giveaway and laughs!

    ReplyDelete
  147. Well, my mother crocheted some stockings for me (yes, the whole way up) and I actually wore them once...

  150. I once had to go to highschool with creases ironed down the middle of each jeans leg. Yes, jeans! After that day my mother was not allowed to iron any of my clothes. I think that was her master plan...

  152. Not sure I can remember my school days - best forgotten! Ok how about wearing long socks when the fashion was to wear long socks scrunched around your ankles not pulled up to your knees - I'm not sure what was worse!
