I am so excited Spring is in the air and warmer days are here, that I thought it was the right time for a giveaway!
It’s a giveaway to thank you for reading my little blog and motivating me to sew with you kind comments.
So here we go…
The giveaway includes:
- 1.6 yards (1.5 meters) Green Double-cotton jersey, Made in Italy, as seen in my Billy Cardi (luckily the shop still had some left)
- this jersey fabric is quite easy to sew with. It’s not flimsy nor slippery and could be easily sewn with a zig-zag stitch on a regular sewing machine.
- Flower cotton brooch I made for the giveaway (three-inch wide, with a woolen backing and my signature label)
If you are looking for a quick jersey project, here are some of my favorites:
- Cowl Neck Vest
- Did I mention the Billy Cardi? :o)
- Long sleeve Tunic or turn it into a dress (BTW Thimble and Acorn creations are awesome, I bought a dress some time ago)
- A skirt with embroidery or appliqué
HOW TO ENTER:
Leave a comment here with your answer to this question:
What would you sew with this fabric?
I’ll choose one comment at random as the winner. Deadline is midnight GMT on Tuesday, April 12, 2011.
The giveaway is open the whole world.
And thanks for reading.

How generous of you! This is pretty boring but id probably make a simple knit dress, short sleeve, scoop neck, simple versatile in this great warm weather color. Or id brave a cardigan like you! 🙂
The Billy Cardi!!!!!!!
I have been looking for a fabric loke this for doing it since a saw it at luvinthemommyhood.com:-D
Did I mention before that this is pretty much my favorite shade of green? 🙂
Hmm, depending on the width of the fabric, I’d probably try to squeeze a little half-circle skirt and a short-sleeved cowl-neck top out of it. Maybe embroider both with some flowers… Maybe in purple… And try to make a fabric flower from the scraps? Have I mentioned that your fabric flowers are very pretty and I’ve been wanting to make one (and subsequently forgetting about it) for ages? 🙂
Pretty color! I’d make a dress, for sure. My niece will graduate from college next month, so it would be a gift for her. I’m thinking of a sleeveless cowl neck bodice and an a line skirt. She looks great in anything, and the color would suit her.
Thanks for posting this giveaway!
A lovely giveaway. I would make a cardigan from a japanese pattern book I have been given. It looks like quite a simple pattern based on rectangles.
Green is my favorite color! And I’d love to try out the Billy Cardi. I’ve been wanting to try that out for a while 🙂
What a nice giveaway! It seems like fate that you would comment on my blog last week, which brought me to your blog, which has a giveaway of jersey- all at the time when I am trying to figure out how to sew clothes for myself out of knit fabric/jersey!! AND that colour green is my favourite colour!!!
what would i make? I don’t have a pattern yet, but a tunic-y top or a dress would be grand. maybe something like this:
thanks for offering it, and I’m glad to see your blog- as I said, I’m trying to figure out how to sew for myself, I only really like to wear knits, and your blog looks like a place to go for inspiration!
oh- and i love the pin too- would look great on a spring jacket
I would, without a doubt, make the Billy cardi. I’ve been quilting for a while and got away from sewing clothes. Your blog is such a sewing inspiration to me that I feel the need to start garment construction again. Thank you!
