modern fabric bundle ~ giveaway ~

**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**

My stash is superabundant and so it seemed right to share it and join the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day!


I created a modern bundle of fabrics to giveaway that I think you'll love. There are bright fun prints, low volume and stash blenders.

I know you're probably all hopping around so I won't go into too much detail about what is there but the bundle includes a couple of FQs and plenty of scraps - all a useable size (though many have pieces cut out, it is my stash after all!). They are unwashed designer quilting cottons (two are cotton/linen blends).

Let's break it down a bit...



So do you fancy helping me decrease my stash and using these lovelies in your handmade projects?

*SORRY GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED*

To enter:

- Leave a comment letting me know your best dance move or what dance you'd love to be able to do. 
I like to shake my stuff in the kitchen while I'm cooking and cleaning but there probably isn't a word for that dance other than the 'mum dance' even though I think I'm Beyonce ;) I would love to be a fabulous tap dancer like Ann Miller (if you don't know who she is, check this out!).

- Followers of my blog get an extra entry, just leave a second comment telling me how you follow (blogger, GFC, a reader, email etc).

Please leave your email address in the comment to be sure I can contact you, no reply bloggers have been picked as the winner before and lost out because I can't get in touch with them! No reply bloggers/comments will not win.
The giveaway is open internationally and will close on Saturday 13th December, the winner will be chosen by random.org and announced here on that day.

The winner was announced here.

Then visit the other great giveaways at Sew Mama Sew!

  2. Lol?! I think my groove thing is broken. But if trying to dance, clumsily bumping into something, then watching your furniture fall like dominoes is what you're after then I'm your girl! Plus I'd like to be able to do the splits but the hospital visit that would be needed after is just not in the budget.

  3. My (then freshly wedded!) husband and I danced on 'por una cabeza' (you know, from scent of a woman) even though neither of us could/can dance :-) Great and gruesome at the same time :-) wish I could really dance any dance at all!

  12. My favorite dance of all time is the neck work if anyone doesn't know what it is..you hold your head up looking to the right then left keeping your neck stiff and you bounce your head up and down (now that you have that in mind). My cousins and I went out on the town one night and my cousin wanted to learn this dance so bad she kept asking me to show her how to do it so I did. When she finally got it she did it all night none stop. When we woke up the next morning her head was facing to the right and she couldn't move her neck . We were like what's wrong with you she was like my neck hurts so bad from doing the neck work last night..We laughed so hard and she was like that for three days. The four day she had to return home to California with a sore neck but a night to remember for a life time. The one dance I'd love to learn to do is twerk I just don't have the buns back there nor the moves to make that happen but I sure try all the time I keep my kids and grandchildren laughing daily. I love to dance and I love following you on Bloglovin'.

  136. That would have to be the Happy Dance. You know where you start screaming and jumping up and down like a crazy lady. It's when you receive a nice squishy package in the mail and you can wrap this up and put it under the tree and tell your spouse you just won fabric and he didn't have to but this one himself. Thank you for being a part of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway and giving me the chance to win this lovely package of modern fabric. Merry Christmas to you.
