  • kaitlyn

    there are so many things i would make if i won this gift certificate, so hard to narrow it down to one but i have been wanting to try my hand at quilting, need some fresh new summer clothes, and i have 150 wedding favors to make cute little drawstring bags for… oh the possibilities!!

  • Ashley

    I have SO many things on my craft list. Most of them having to do with baby on the way. I might even make something for myself- a new skirt would be fab!

  • grimsaburger

    I wish I had some fabulous project waiting in the wings, but instead I have a dire need for new curtains in four rooms of our house, plus six dining chair seats to cover. And boy, wouldn’t it be nice to do them all at once?!

  • Lyndsey

    Dolls, Dolls, and more Dolls!!!!

  • Nic

    The most kick-ass of kick-ass dresses to wear to my ex’s wedding. And then some slightly boring curtains for my apartment.

  • Eliza Sea

    I’d probably make a few skirts first, and then get into quilting. I’ve been oohing and aahing over vintage quilts lately.

  • sinless

    I think I’d have to go with a new skirt for me and then new curtains for the dining room :D

  • Steffie

    I would make a quilt!!! My boyfriend and I have been without a proper blanket for quite some time. Our queen sized bed is fitted with sheets and three blankets, none of which are big enough to cover us both at the same time. I want to make a quilt (my first quilt ever) to keep us cuddled this spring!!

  • Jamie

    I owuld most likely make puppets, I love puppets and puppet shows and try to give them to my family as gift, and then we have puppet shows. I think could do with some new curtains…but it would be so difficult to decide.
    It would be used up and well, that is for sure!

  • Missy Ann

    I would be as happy as a pig in mud. For years my blog posts would start “More From The Fabric.com Haul”. I’m make tons of small things. I’d use pieces here and there to make quilts. etc etc

  • abigailwilliams

    a small list of projects I’ve always wanted to do…
    art quilts
    summer dresses
    summer tops
    throw pillows
    decorative wall hanging
    more textile jewelry
    reusable snack bags
    cover for my sewing machine
    banana hammock
    totebag
    bag for my computer
    organizer for all my jewelry pliers, files, sawframes
    plush protectors for the jewelry from my recent exhibition
    dish to keep my hearing aids and glasses safe by my bed
    desktop organizer for my pens, needles, hooks, scissors
    …in general anything that I want to look darling and cleaned up

  • Amy

    I would make my very first quilt! And if I had anything left over, I would make some skirts.

  • filminthefridge

    Oh my, this would just make my year! I would use the fabric in a number of quilts, plus I think I’d get some home dec fabric for curtains for our bedroom. I think I’d also make a few more clothes from Heather Ross’s Weekend Sewing book. Ah, so many projects, so little time!

  • Meghan

    Holy smokes! What an awesome giveaway.
    We just moved into a new house, so I’d make curtains, pillows for our porch bench, a quilt for the guest room, some gum drop pillows for the living room… and probably a summer skirt or two for myself.

  • Cheryl Potemkin

    Lots and lots of things for my new baby girl! I have patterns just waiting for the right fabric… stroller bags, toys, clothes, the list goes on…

  • Beth Walker

    I would use this fabric to end war, bring world peace, feed hungry children, end the economic recession, and help control the pet population by having your pets spayed or neutered.

  • Heather

    OMGoodess! This would be fabulous!! I am starting to get into quilting, and there are a bunch of new babies in my group of friends who I would love to make blankets for!
    Ethan
    Andre
    Gabe
    Lizett
    and another one due in a few days!
    And I’d love to do a wall hanging for behind our television.
    Ooh Ooh! And I have some requests for aprons, and I really want to make some summer dresses because it gets so hot up here! Plus I’ve been wanting to make a vintage inspired 50’s house dress!

  • Audrey

    I would LOVE to make a quilt for my daughter…pink with polka dots she says. There are lots of other projects I’m sure I could use the fabric for too!

  • Catherine

    Oh, I’d LOVE to win this fabric! My stash isn’t too big and I’m excited make some summer clothes for my two year old and baby-to-be coming at the end of July! I’d love to use some fabric to make gifts for upcoming birthdays and of course, Mother’s Day. Thank you!

  • Alisa

    Oh my, let’s see. First, I’d make so skirts and then some totes and then some pajamas and then some……….I may never come out of my craft room again. :)

  • Heather

    Bags! Dresses! Curtains!

  • frogginette.wordpress.com

    I would go nuts, for sure! Skirts, tops, baby stuff… you name it!

  • Jamie in Mpls

    We are looking for a house right now, so I would deck out the whole place in homemade! Curtains, roman shades, pillows, quilts, wall hangings, more pillows, rugs, place mats, napkins, hand towels, more pillows, purses, grocery bags, more quilts…

  • clairshearar

    Oh, wow – where to start! Clothing for my 2 little boys, some new quilts & some clothing for me. Just a little list!

  • Vivianne

    I really need a fancy fabric to cover a small wall that now is just boring!

  • Kim

    I’m already a fabric.com addict and have a huge list of projects. First up is trying my hand at making a cute retro-inspired swimsuit this year, and I’ve got my eye on a polka dot lycra that would be perfect. Plus I’d need to make a new summer handbag to go with, and my summer fabric stash is looking pretty bare right now!

  • Amy W.

    Umm…goodness, $250 can buy enough fabric for a lot of projects. I’d definitely buy some fabric for my second-ever quilt. Fabric for a skirt and some cute pants for my son. And since it would be free, I’d feel much more adventurous about my choices and just wildly buy whatever appeals to me.

  • Elena

    omg, this would be my dream come true! I would create all sorts of great bags and accessories to match all my favorite outfits so I can be all handmade, all the time!

  • cari s

    I would make a million new summery dresses! and skirts!

  • stacy

    The possibilities are amazing!
    I’m working on some “fancy” slips for some friends now and could use some new materials for inspiration.
    Having made my first quilt last year, I would love to make another. With matching pillow shams, of course.
    My niece’s second birthday is coming up, and our close friends just had a beautiful baby girl, both of whom could use the “Someone to Watch Over You” wall hanging from Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts….
    *still thinking*

  • Catherine

    How cool would this be?! I’d make a dress for a Spring wedding and bags galore. :)

  • j.black :: ah_champagne

    If I was to win the giveaway, I would be able to afford the fabrics for my final year project at University; where I’ve been studying visual arts. The fabric would be used to create flags and a number of soft sculptures with display screens & tech elements that connect via wireless network to display information. This project plays with the concept of being beyond the veil, while also addressing language & representation that’s disconnected/hidden from its original source. The research I have been undertaking relies heavily on the history of needlework undertaken by women since the middle ages, & the symbolism associated with femininity & coded language — so I would love to be able to be able to afford quality fabrics which would add to the strength of my project. Thanks!

  • Tina L.

    250 dollars? That could buy me a LOT of fabric. :p a LOT.

  • DebbieKL

    Holy cow! $250 in fabric!! There are so many projects I could do with all that fabric. I’m learning to quilt, so a quilt for my bed would be awesome. I’ve been sewing some clothes for my son and am looking for summer patterns. That’s a lot of shorts! I could make items for my etsy shop. Or something for the new house we’re building.

  • barmyowlscoo

    Being a new to quilting it would be so nice to have a range of fabric. I am running out of scraps and I have and even have use old PJ’s. It would be nice to get some bright bold colours in homely projects as my husband only thinks in beige.

  • laura busse

    I have never commented before but as a new quilter I can’t imagine a better stash then some new fabric!

  • Patricia Lupien

    Wow, I I got the gift certificate, I’d make new curtains for my house, tote bags for my family, and throw pillows for my couch.

  • nowaks nähkästchen

    Oh… would be hard to choose… either a wardrobe for this years holidy or already planning the autumn “back to work” wardrobe? (Yes, my planning takes a lot of time)
    Or something completely different… But it would be great!

  • Mariela

    A dress for my unforeseen wedding in Iowa! and my first heirloom quilt. Bring on the gift!

  • Nova

    $250? Well that would round out my Spring/Summer wardrobe nicely…

  • Heidi

    I would use it to make charity quilts. I am a member of a woman’s service organization in my home town. Every December is our big fund raiser event for our chosen charity, currently the American Red Cross. We have a silent auction at the even. I would donate the quilt(s) to this event. Or other local charity auction events, depending how much fabric I can squeeze into that $250.00 gift certificate :)

  • feinesstoeffchen.wordpress.com

    At first I´d jump up to the ceiling, then I´d tell everybody I know and then I´d go online shopping for Fabrics for my kids clothing without watching the price!
    What a great giveaway!!!!!!!!!
    Best wishes,
    Kati

  • Trina

    I’m swooning! I think I’d create a new summer wardrobe, lots of swingy little dresses and fun tanks. Yum!

  • Lindsey@A Kindred Spirit’s Thoughts

    Wow, what an awesome prize! I have a baby quilt I’m really wanting to make… this would definitely get me going! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Kaitlin

    I’d make spring dresses for my niece!

  • Kandra

    I’d absolutely love to win this.. 250 bucks on fabric! WOWZERS! I’d be able to make many things – like dresses for my 2year old neice, baby stuff for my sister who is preggers, a quilt for my daughter – and definately a spring bag for me :D

  • unicornsRpeople2

    If I won this free fabric there are so many things that I would make. Dresses and skirts, quilts, bags, hats, presents for my loved ones. I would probably take advantage of the opportunity and make things to sell in my etsy shop (I’ve never actually sold anything in it yet) but I’m not sure exactly what I would sell. Something really cute. Like headbands. Also I would make myself a TON of cute headbands to show off my dreadies :)
    Please give me the certificate, I am a poor college student without the money for sewing :( Also, I LOVE CRAFT!!!!!!

  • raynuuu

    I would quit talking and daydreaming about it, and finally stitch up the Single Girl quilt I’ve been mooning over for ages.

  • amy

    hey, cool!
    i have so many things i want to make! first up – a new groovy totebag, some curtains for my bedroom to replace the too-long mustard-colored ones that are currently up… and i am just dying to start dabbling in quilting.

  • calvarez

    OMG I will go crazy if I win the fabric’s… I just started to sew and now I can’t stop, I will love to make a skirt for the summer and some plush, and I also have so patterens I will like to make for mothers day. Please pick me… I will also make an outfit for my birthday..

  • Ashley

    I would love to make some spring pillows and baby blankets. I LOVE to make baby stuff out of cool fabrics.

  • leah

    proper motivation to figure out what’s wrong with my sewing machine and then go crazy! I would make some clothes and bags and the typical, but I’d also play around with the idea of making quilted fabric covers for books, maybe?

  • thedaintysquid

    If I were to win I would use the fabric to make a quilt with my mom. We always talk about making a quilt together and never do it, this would be that extra push that would make us!

  • greetingarts

    I just bought a bunch of fun summer dress patterns for my girls, all patchwork-y and twirly. I’d have so much fun picking fabrics for their new wardrobes! Thanks for the chance…

  • Lori

    I would love tho win this. I just finished my first sewing class! I found all of these ideas that I would love to make, but sewing can be quite costly!

  • Jennifer B

    I would finish my son’s baby quilt, and make myself a be-u-ti-ful skirt for the summer! OH and CURTAINS, i need them….. thanks for offering!

  • Jenn

    I just started making aprons as a hobby but would really love to make it into a business. As soon as I started this project I got laid off from my job, so the prospect of making my hobby into a money making venture is kind of important.
    I sew every day now that I’m unemployed. So my collection of fabric has dwindled and is in need of replenishing! :)

  • sibsen

    I’d make grocery bags for all my friends and frenemies because I do think everyone should stop using those plastic terrors.

  • Lori Kay

    I love Fabric.com. They have great stuff and great sales. I’ve been good so far in 2009, sticking to my “no fabric buying” diet. I deserve a reward, don’t you think???

  • Siobhan

    I have recently purchased a sewing machine but feel so overwhelmed! What to make? What do I need to buy? I would love to get some awesome fabric to motivate me to get started in creating something beautiful. I would love this prize! In times like these, who couldn’t use some extra money to help with hobbies, because those are usually the first to be cut from the budget!

  • Jodi Davis

    I have 2 sister in-laws who are both pregnant so I would love to have fabric for ribbon blankets, bibs, and burp cloths.

  • Kristine

    Oooh, how awesome! I need a quilt for my own bed and curtains for the apartment! I could use some summer clothes, too!

  • Cheryl W

    I would make a new quilt for my bedroom. I want to bring some new colors in there, make it look fresh again! Thanks!
    sphinxcw (at) aol (dot) com

  • littletimebomb

    I’ll be transitioning to a stay at home Mom and day now and I can’t wait to have the free time to sew again! I’ve been stocking up on cute baby patterns!

  • ronivm

    Awesome giveaway! I would make summer wardrobes for my two daughters…ages 9 and 3. I’d probably throw a couple of things in there for me too :) Fingers crossed!

  • jennifer

    i would make a new summer wardrobe. pretty simple.

  • Mattu

    there is so much i could do with it… for starters i would love to make book bags for friends and family, and fun skirts!!

  • EBrasell

    A beautiful spring/summer wardrobe is calling my name!

  • Cassie

    So many things, pillows, purses, totes, skirts. With so much fabric I could make anything.

  • Lori Kay

    forgot to say that I would buy sashing and backing fabrics for the benefit quilts that I so enjoy making!

  • brattypants

    If I’m fortunate enough to be chosen as the winner of this giveaway I would use the fabric to make blankets, bibs, burp cloths, etc. to get my Etsy store off the ground and running!

  • jessiebit

    My mom has just given me her ancient sewing machine and I’m teaching myself to sew! If I own all that groovy fabric I would replace the window valance in the guest bathroom, cover the ugly throw pillows, make some placemats and generally beautify the house I’m renting.
    Thanks!

  • MamaPhunk

    My husband and I worked our butts off to buy our first house, with no money left over for curtains! It’s like we’re living in a fishbowl!! HAHA!

  • Suzi(e) Q

    I would try to make a quilt. I would also make bandanas for my dog and other fun doggy toys. I would attempt to make curtins or drapes for the house my boyfriend and I are getting. Its going to be finished being built in may so getting the fabric would help save money for us.

  • Beth

    If I won I’d make a twin size quilt with the fabric and some dresses for my daughter, shorts for summer and a lot more!! So excited!! Hope I win!

  • Zombiwoman

    ooh! Window shades! No, pillows! No, wait, cool new summer apparel. Oh, oh, I know – neat goodies for sweet nieces!
    Sigh… too hard to decide right away!
    Shall have to work on inspiration from the fabrics themselves if I win!
    Hope that whoever does win sends you some pics!

  • Deanna

    I would make a reusable tote for my girlfriend, so she stops killing using plastic bags!

  • Shermanfour

    I’m excited about this giveaway! I would make lots of make-up bags and baby shoes! Maybe some clothes for my kids too.

  • anne

    i never thought i’d get into sewing, but a few months ago i set up a hand-me-down machine to try making an apron and haven’t stopped sewing since. i have a long list of things i want to try now, including window shades, purses/bags, baby gifts (quilts, blankets, stuffed animals, clothes), placemats and napkins, a wrap skirt… A fabric gift certificate would be SO GREAT!

  • Donna F

    I would make a summer wardrobe for myself and my 22 year old daughter! She still lets me sew for her!

  • kelly

    I’ve just gotten back into sewing after a long long reprieve and have been trying to expand my stash without breaking the bank. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this creative (too, too long) and I’d like to keep the momentum going. Happily, I can think of so many things – especially gifts for new babies and newly marrieds – but I’d also love to try my hand at a quilt for me.
    Thank you for offering this chance to whomever the lucky recipient may be!

  • Mandy

    I have so many projects I want to work on! A new skirt, a dress, a Lolita dress, capri type pants, window treatments, and some sort of treatments for my screened in porch to make it feel all homey, and maybe a little more summery. But mostly to hide to neighbors side of the house which just has a bunch of trash you end up staring at from the hammock.

  • Marcella

    I would finally get around to make a quilt for ME! Thanks so much!

  • GJ

    Oh, what fun! I have a project list – a garden wall quilt in pinks, greens, and browns; the Amy Butler Weekender bag, a super durable diaper bag for a friend about to have twins…

  • mgn

    I’ve been wanting to make a chevron patterned quilt for my bed. It’s be a perfect summer project!

  • Ahava

    Oh my. What an awesome giveaway!
    I know exactly what I would do: I would buy enough fabric to reupholster two thrifted side chairs in bright/modern fabrics a la Anna Marie Horner. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, but there’s always an excuse. A great gift like this would leave me with no more excuses.

  • JonnyQuest

    Hey there ya’ll!
    I’m an art student at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and I’m a Fiber Arts Major . I love making crazy stuffed animals and costumes. Think of how many projects I could make with all of that beautiful fabric! I’d even send pictures of what I made into both Fabric.com and Craft so you could see what the fabric had gone to.
    Give it to the poor Art Student!
    Please?

  • mynda

    quilts, quilts, a skirt, quilts, a blouse, and more quilts.

  • Cassie

    I’m making my wedding dress (a corset-y little number) and maybe the flower girl’s! This would be perfect. Fingers crossed!

  • Bani

    what i would do with this gift certificate? – buy a lot of fabrics and sew a lot of cute child clothes :)
    and maybe my first quilt? ;)

  • Sarah

    We just moved into a new house and have a baby on the way. So this would be perfect for curtains or the nursery bedding!

  • fuzzypeach

    Wow, what wouldn’t I make?!? I’d probably start with things for the house – I’d love to make some fabric baskets and basket liners, floor pillows, and throw pillows. Next up would be an apron for myself… I have a pattern sitting around waiting for the right fabric and free time! Anything left over would go towards clothes for my daughter, which is what I mainly sew. Thanks!!!

  • Leslie

    Oh how fun! I’ve recently caught the sewing bug again (as opposed to the shop for and collect fabric bug, which I normally have!) and would use the gift certificate to purchase fabric for a few summer tops for myself and fabric for some accessories for my daughter’s room remodel that I’m currently working on!

  • Panya

    I have a huge list of things I want to make, starting with a skirt.

  • Melissa C.

    I would make fabulous purses for my fabulous bridesmaids for my upcoming wedding!

  • Heather

    I would make some clothes (having lost 45 pounds, I am in sore need some new duds) and with the scraps (I try to let nothing go to waste), I would make a scrapy little lap quilt and some hair accessories. Hopefully, I would be a smart enough shopper to have enough left for three quilts (one for me, one for my mom, and one for a local charity). Wow….so many possibilities. I hope I am the one chosen.

  • Meigh

    Mmmmmfaaaabric…Having just restrained myself to a mere yard of awesomeness at Purl Patchwork in NYC this weekend, I’d LOVE the chance to go crazy with fabric purchases. I’m on a bit of a purse kick, so I think I’d make some cute spring/summer purses, and possibly some home-decor action for our new apartment.

  • imake1tgirl.livejournal.com

    I would use the fabric to redo my wardrobe. I am just going into remission from Graves Disease, and have finally gained back enough weight to look like a normal girl again. The good part is that I get to redo my wardrobe because I am no longer so skinny my bones show, but the bad part is I am way too ambitious, and will need lots of fabric.

  • Sarah

    Sorry, I forgot to include my email address in the previous comment.

  • C_Penn

    I’m in the process of making my first BIG quilt, a sort of memory quilt for my daughter with all of her favorite old clothes. It’s to commemorate the move from toddler bed to a big girl bed. I could really use the fabric to finish this up, and for the backing. And then, of course, my two sons will want one too. Thanks for the offer!

  • Heidi

    I would make a play tent for my daughter, who is about to turn 3! Yay!

  • ygg

    Definitely a million things I’d love to make, but probably a lot of it would be clothes for my toddler son :) – I’m trying to learn about sewing clothes and he’s an easy and available model!

  • julie329.vox.com

    I have patterns for pjs for my son, pants for him, skirts and aprons for me, gifts for family and friends. All need fabric (and time!!) Would love to win. Thanks.

  • ruby42

    Oh! I would finish the quilt that I have started with my grandmother’s vintage sheets.
    I would make some new scrubs!! I hate the scrub patterns that I have found in my size.
    Oh, and I would use some to embroider and cross stitch on to make plushes and wall decor.

  • Melissa

    I would love to win this!!
    I just got a sewing machine for my 25th b-day, but because of lack of funds I haven’t been able to make anything yet. To win a gift certificate for fabric would be awesome! I would make quilts, and dresses and presents for my friends and family!! Oh my goodness! it would be a blast!

  • peachicken

    Oooh… I’d make a quilt and some burp cloths for my little fella. I’d like to make some cute softies for him, too.

  • sommer

    I would love to make myself some clothes.
    I like to make skirts and dresses.

  • wix

    I’d make my first quilt!

  • LittleWit

    I would redo the cushions for all of our chairs in the TV room. Then if there was any leftover :D I would make something pretty like an apron oh and some bags that I have lined up.

  • Ansie

    Quilts, Quilts, Quilts!!!

  • Megan A.

    i would make a quilt for my friend who is about to have a baby. i would probably make lots of clothes for her baby too!

  • E

    I’d make some much needed curtains!

  • colleen

    so many things – skirts, a robe, bags, the list goes on!

  • AbbyT

    With 5 weddings to go to and 3 babies due this summer, there’s a lot of sewing to be done! I plan on kitchen-coordinating napkins, placemats and aprons for the weddings and adorable diaper bags for the moms-to-be.

  • HW

    I have been checking out ‘fabric.com’, and wanting to try Organic cotton & bamboo jersey they have! I would make cute dresses and shirts with it for my three month old daughter, and babies of my friends!! awweeee that would be fun :)

  • Lane

    Hmmmmm… For starters I would make a purse for my 5 year-old neice who is always complaining that she has “nothing beautiful”. Then I would definetly be making a purse for myself and my best because she really is the best. With the remaining money I’d buy as much awesome fabric as I could and ship it off the best because she lives in Virgina. Quilting has become her new passion, and with her husband in the Navy and the new house they bought, money is tight. Since I can’t see her everyday and make her laugh, I figure the fabric to do what she loves is the next best thing.

  • Lydia

    Quilts, quilts, quilts!

  • Ashley

    I would make homemade clothes. I’ve always wanted to!

  • katie grove

    before my son was born, i spent a total of 15 weeks on bed rest. my friend Rachelle took such good care of me, my husband and our soon-to-be son. Now that our son is born (happy and healthy), I would make something special for Rachelle – and let her pick whatever project she wanted!

  • Kate

    I’m brand new to sewing and quilting, so I would use the GC to buy some fabric for a few easy projects as well as to build up my fabric supply at home. Fingers are crossed!!

  • Melissa Anello

    I would share the bounty with my sister and her new sewing machine! We will be able to sew tandem daily soon since she just got her pink slip (as did many California public school teachers.) I have been refining my skills for a while now, in between job apps. I will craft my way through the tough times :)
    me

  • Lorri

    I’d like to try my hand at bags. I’ve seen so many patterns lately. Maybe some sturdy but pretty ones for groceries.

  • Carol

    Clothes…for me, my kids, my granddaughter!

  • Corey

    I’ve been wanting to make some fabric napkins, sandwich and snack bags for my daughter’s lunch box. Also, some fabric shades for my bedroom. This giveaway would be awesome!

  • Jamie

    I would make nursing-friendly summer tops!!

  • sarahjennie

    I am getting married this November and would use the prize to get fabric to make my own Chuppah for my wedding! It’ would help since we are paying for the wedding ourselves. Thanks so much!

  • sea hag

    i’d make a slipcover for the couch my roommates cats destroyed! and some spring clothes for a friend who just lost her job : (

  • Hannah

    Hmmm… I see new coverings for both my house, my son and me. (Sigh and Smile.) If nothing else comes of this, fantastic daydreaming the rest of the day!

  • Pearl

    Quilt…quilt…quilt!! I need to make a quilt for my littlest man.

  • rosebengal

    I would plan on making clothes (jackets, skirts and dresses) for my daughter but really this would just wind up being an awesome addition to my stash for the foreseeable future.

  • Jane

    I would make some placemats using Chalk cloth for the kids, some doll clothes, dress for an upcoming beach wedding, tote bags, and a Shower and window curtain for the bathroom.

  • Kelli

    I would definitely have to do a patchwork quilt!!!

  • Shannon

    What an exciting contest! My wardrobe needs an update badly, and I’m also learning to quilt. I also have a table that needs a tablecloth and a couch that needs a slipcover badly.

  • Perrine

    I would like to sew lots of clothes for my son and daughter!

  • Ashanna

    I think I would probably get some nice fabric to reupholster my couch; it’s looking a little rough.

  • elaine

    250! That’s a lot of fabric. I know I would make clothes for the kids since they’re still at the age when it’s awesome to wear something that mommy made. Then I think after all these years of crafting, I would finally make a quilt for myself and no one else! Well, maybe a doll quilt or two for some little girls I know.

  • Natasha A.

    My friends are getting married in June and I would love to make a pretty dress to wear! Also, I want to learn to quilt, so this be a great opportunity for me to get started!

  • Pamela

    I love the fabric here and am double crossing my fingers in hopes that I’ll win this great giveaway! Thanks for doing this Craft!

  • Sandy

    I have not made a quilt in a while. All of my sewing time is spent on the biz. This past weekend I cleaned out my sewing room and saw my quilting stuff sitting there ready and waiting. This would definitely encourage me to make one!

  • joyanne

    i would probably get fabric to make bags/purses to start my etsy shop. also stuff for skirts and dresses for me and my little sisters. i could also find some other things to make, i’m sure :]

  • Kiriko Moth

    Mmmm…I love fabric. I love to make plush toys and tote bags, so maybe I would make matching pairs of them! Cute toys with their own coordinated totes. :)

  • Christine

    i would make millions of dresses and purses for summer :) plus i would do a lot of experimenting with it, there are plenty of tutorials i fund online i would like to try like the fabric hair curlers and there was a really good quilt tutorial i saw :)

  • CC

    i would love to make a wall quilt with blackboard fabric

  • Tori

    I have had my eye on some caspian neptune fabric to reupholster a chair with!

  • Jessica Childers

    i could make oh, so many things:
    new clothes
    bridesmaids dresses
    bunting for wedding decoration
    a new purse
    couch cushions…
    the list goes on!

  • Dorion

    Ooh, that would be enough to make new floor-to-ceiling curtains in my work room.

  • JoAnne

    I would probably use this fabric to help my Girl Scouts learn to sew, and make items to be donated to various groups, like chemo caps.
    On a side note, I tried to sign in, but the website wouldn’t let me. I tried to register, but my name was already in use, so I requested my password. Got the password, tried to sign in – still invalid. Hope signing in anonymously works for the giveaway!

  • Laura Kotelman

    I am looking to shed my brown duvet color and change it to a bright yellow with gray accents. I need all the brightness that I can get for the long Alaskan winters. I am ready to celebrate spring and houseguests.
    A simple duvet cover and pillow cases would be great!

  • Holly

    I have so many things to make for my baby on the way! Quilts, toys, clothes, bibs, burp rags, and on and on!

  • Sally W.

    I’m into making reversible wrap skirts and basic drawstring bags to hold knitting projects!!

  • alfanhui14.wordpress.com

    many many many cushions!!!! and maybe an apron…..

  • Rachel

    Definitely some springy colorful curtains for my dingy little apartment windows! I can see them blowing in the breeze now…

  • thesleepyknitter

    What a fun contest! I want to make a dining room table covering that will look like a space station from the outside. My daughter will love it!

  • mel h.

    There are so many things I want to do – where would I start? A skirt or top for me? Cover for the loveseat? Cushion for the window seat? A quilt for my toddler? What fun!

  • Mikaiya

    This would be amazing- I have moved in with my fiance, and almost every room needs curtains. This would make my home dec dreams possible on my limited budget while we’re wedding planning!

  • Nancy

    I think a better questions is what wouldn’t I make! I could stretch $250 into a lot of projects. But I would start with backing and binding for a couple projects that I am currently working on. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Jenn

    I would buy backs for several of the quilts I’ve completed & create a few more… I’ve been wanting to try a black & white themed quilt, maybe I’ll get to do that this year.

  • JennH

    This is amazing! I would make pretty spring dresses and curtains for my living room and probably something for my kiddos and my brother’s baby-on-the-way!

  • Lauren

    Let’s see…I would probably get some pricey textiles for decorating my new home, then spend the rest on things needed for my costuming hobby. How wonderful!

  • Allison L.

    I’d make a colorful dress, a wonderfully big bag and a quilt. I plan on wearing my handmade dress all around town, bringing home library books and curling up under the quilt to read.
    Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  • bob

    I would make clothes for my little ‘un. And maybe some curtains for his room to make it more cosy for him.

  • jenn

    i would make some new summer clothes for the kids — especially some fun summer dresses for my daughter, who keeps asking when i’m going to make her more clothes. next up on the project list: grocery bags for my brother and dear friends, so we can save the world one plastic bag at a time!

  • CarolK

    I would make lots of little itty bitty things like lady bugs or dragon flies or frogs. I would hide them under cushions, put them on walls, on presents and surprise people with them.
    and I might do something more altruistic since I make stuff for charity too. Babies that leave the hospital with a mom that lives from couch to couch and need everything and probably including something useful with a little humor, warmth and comfort.

  • Anonymous

    I would definitely use this gift certificate to make my senior prom dress! Also, there are two foster children I know that really need some new clothes, and I’d LOVE to let them pick out whatever fabric they want and make clothes for them!!

  • dark matter

    This is really an exciting giveaway! I’ve been making my own clothes lately, and I have some projects I’d like to work on (skirts, dresses, a vest, etc.). This would really help me out :)

  • Jennifer

    Oh, what a great giveaway, thank you!
    There are so many possibilities. Any fabric I get will for sure go into plush, totes and aprons since those are my favorite things to make and I’m getting into selling them. There are also so many great projects here that I’d love to try and lots of presents I’d love to make. Or I might just roll around in the pile of fabric in absolute glee, as this would make my decade. :)

  • Lilorfnannie

    I would love this- I would make a large quilt for my daughter, and dresses for myself and her, and shirts for my boy.

  • feeyonah

    I don’t know where to begin…
    I’ve been searching for a new handbag forever… if I win, I’ll make one.
    My friend has recently had a gorgeous little baby girl… if I win, I’m making her a sun dress
    I work in a really crappy and miserable office. It’s all dark and boring and the usual office colours of grey, grey and grey… if I win, I’m modifying my office chair (whether they like it or not)
    …and finally, we’re in the process of building a craft room outside in the garden (well, transforming what was a huge unused garage)… if I win, I’ll be able to make the curtains, the seat covers, a huge floor cushion and maybe even a weighted door stop!

  • Bobbi

    Awesome, awesome, awesome!!! If I were to win this giveaway, I would definitely use the prize for quilting. :)

  • Sarah

    I would just be so happy to win this. I’ve got clothes for me and my kids in mind. I need to make a slipcover and some new spring pillows. A new handbag/diaper bag is in order for a new baby!

  • mandolyn

    Dresses for my daughter, quilts, and cool reusable bags for the grocery store!

  • tewing

    If i won this, I would work on completely all the projects I want but can’t afford. Some fabric to recover the chairs my mother is about to pass on to me, curtains for the houses, a quilt for my bed. Some summer shirts and dresses. Gifts for all the new babies my friends and family are having. A great beach bag. I could probably go on and on and on.

  • COlleen

    I would make some new spring/summer clothes! I am going to Myrtle Beach in a month and I need a cute dress for the beach.

  • clwein

    How lucky I would be!

  • sydneysnana

    I have 2 grand-daughters, and identical twins grand? on the way!! New dresses and nursery!! Maybe a couple purses for fun

  • jenny

    I would make a quilt!

  • kristinroach.wordpress.com

    I know for sure I would reupholster my favorite chair and make some curtains for my studio! Then, who knows, many many craft leftover goodies!

  • Poobert

    Skirts skirts skirts! And curtains!

  • ami

    I am recovering from a major surgery and don’t have the energy to do much. Quilting is one task I can manage and I long to make quilts to give a gifts and to decorate my home. This would make it possible!

  • erin

    How awesome, the possibilities are spinning in my head already! Thanks!

  • Sarah

    I’d make some clothes (probably a jacket) for my son, some clothes for the new baby I’m pregnant with, maybe a maternity skirt for myself. Ooohh.. maybe some curtains. Maybe I’d do something interesting to decorate the kids’ rooms… The possibilities are endless! :)

  • KJ

    I could use this, well, my work place could use my donation. I work for a science museum and times are rough for museums…anyways I am in the middle of designing reusable “body aprons” for a class for kids under 6 to learn, in part, about their internal organs. Instead of using construction paper, we are looking to make them out of fabric with magnetic organs the kids can put in the right spots. It’s pretty cute. We’re being green and saving money! If I snagged this, it would cover all the cost of the fabric supplies and that would rock.

  • Lisa

    I would make lots and lots of softies! Maybe including a giant giraffe or some other obscenely sized creation

  • Elizabeth

    I’d probably use some for bellydance costuming. Some would go to my Church of Craft group. And the rest would go to my MIL’s hospital to be made into pillows!

  • Catty

    Gosh! As a broke self employed student, I typically wander my local fabric stores and just drool. The possibilities for this would be endless! I think I’d start by making some dresses for myself. My brain just started ticking at the thought! haha!

  • Stacy

    What a great giveaway! I would make my mom and apron and some clothes for my son.

  • Jana

    I love to quilt. So, I’d make a couple of quilts. One for my bedroom, which is sadly neglected, and one for my little boy’s room. I’m sure there’d be enough left over for curtains as well- thanks for generous give away!

  • Adrienne

    Lost my job in January, and am also losing weight – so I would make myself a new summer wardrobe!!!

  • Shannon

    I am making everyone Christmas gifts this year and am getting started now, I would use it for that for sure!

  • Kim V

    I would make some new clothes for my daughter.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
    kimspam66(at)yahoo(dot)com

  • Pam!

    hmmm … that’s a lot of fabric. muhahahahha I would start with some new curtain panels for my pantry, 2 quilts I’ve been eyeballing, and play clothes for my kids.

  • Victor

    I have to make puppets for a project in spanish and this is the perfect opportunity to get fabric!
    Of course everything would be photographed for the group flickr pool as well. ;)
    The rest of the fabric? May go into some more sewing projects, as I’m still sort of a beginner finding his way around a sewing machine. :D

  • thesleepyknitter

    Seriously, I’ve been thinking for years about people in Sierra Leone (west coast of Africa) who had hands or feet chopped off during the so-called “civil” war. Imagine trying to get dressed without hands! I’ve had this picture growing in my mind of a knee-length, sleeved or sleeveless garment that wraps around first the front, then the back, and then the front again, like a hospital gown but without ties, in which case it might need to wrap one more time, just an armhole at that point, maybe. A person wouldn’t need fingers to put on a garment like that. It could have large front pockets for holding small items (not so large that the weight of the items would cause the garment to swing open as the person is moving about his or her day). Can anybody picture this? Can you picture a charity in which sewists would donate this kind of garment to be taken to Sierra Leone? I’m just mulling it over as I sit here. After I submitted my first “entry” for this contest, this garment popped into my mind. Does this idea strike anyone as a bad or a good idea? Just thinking aloud, I guess.
    –Sleepy

  • Sujomi

    I would start sewing once again, that’s what I would do! Totes, skirts, toys….

  • Emily

    I would make a set of baby clothes/toys/bibs for my upcoming nephew/niece-to-be, and slew of skirts and bags for myself.

  • KJ

    hope this didn’t post twice sorry if it did.
    I could use this, well, my work place could use my donation. I work for a science museum and times are rough for museums…
    anyways I am in the middle of designing reusable “body aprons” for a class for kids under 6 to learn, in part, about their internal organs. Consists of an apron with the ribs, pelvis and spine on it that a child wears, with magnests sewin in, and then little organs with magents in them to place in the appropriate locations.
    It’s pretty cute.
    This design hasn’t been made yet, in part due to time, and in part due to materials. As it currently runs, the class uses construction paper cuts outs which is wasteful. We deiced to design it to be reusable.
    We’re being green and saving money! If I snagged this, it would cover all the cost of the fabric supplies and that would rock.

  • Deanne

    I’d start with a new bag for spring, then the possibilities are endless! What an awesome contest! Thanks for the chance to win. :D

  • Dani

    the things I could do with this!

  • Marissa Bowers

    Softies, lots and lots of softies. And complimenting fabric for my recycled sweater creations.

  • Alisha

    Gosh, what wouldn’t I make??
    I have an idea for a really cute pleaty dress for my god-daughter’s first birthday. If I make that, I’ll sure post a tutorial. I’ve also been trying to create the perfect J. Peterman 1947 shirt dress, without paying Mr. Peterman a week’s salary.

  • Miss Molly Mayhem

    Continue to make newborn clothing for the baskets that are given out by the local shelter to “less fortunate” single moms in my area!

  • stblaize

    A dear friend of mine has asked me to perform her wedding ceremony in August. In the meanwhile, I’m going to Tajikistan for 6 weeks starting in May. I have an idea of making my friend and her soon-to-be husband a set of aprons, using (I hope) fabric from fabric.com and bits I imagine I will pick up during my sojourn in Central Asia.

  • Linda j

    I’d make many, many bags. hobo bags, clutches, totes…you name it!

  • Sarah

    I would make lots of bags, quilts, etc… Sewing is my new fave! ~Sarah

  • morningcrafter

    What a wonderful gift this would be. I would have ample supply to make wallets and bags for my friends and family!

  • Dawn

    I would sew some clothes for my wardrobe, some things to add color to the grey palette I have. Though the body aprons mentioned by KJ above sound awesome and I may make one for myself.

  • Miss Molly Mayhem

    Continue to make newborn clothing for the baskets that are given out by the local shelter to “less fortunate” single moms in my area!

  • Sara

    I could let my inspiration run wild!!!
    I’d probably start a quilt, or make some cool clothes for my son and myself.
    And purses, I’ve been big into making purses lately. I don’t know what that’s about!

  • mandiegirl

    If I won, I’d be decoupaing and making lots of shadowboxes! I would also be learning how to make my own curtains!

  • Andrea

    These days I’m mostly making clothing, for me (must make smaller clothes yay!) or for a soon to arrive niece. I need more cotton knits to make teeny tiny girl stuff.
    The Fabric.com people are really cool, I’ve been shopping with them for years. I used to pick up my orders at the warehouse.

  • Katya

    I’ve promised my sisters and my niece and nephew that I’d make them all aprons for Christmas. Whee! With $250 I could make everyone an apron AND make my husband some new linen shirts for Ren Faire! (And probably make some skirts for me and some baby stuff for the five friends who are having babies this summer!)

  • meilin-miranda.livejournal.com

    I couldn’t log in via LJ…
    I would make some summer dresses/skirts to cover up my bike shorts! I’m too fat to wear the shorts alone. :) I’d also make some skirts and tops for my girls.

  • schleifnet

    bet she would love this

  • Mary

    I would Make a lovely new dress for spring and summer. Dress season is so so close!
    I have so many new dress ideas I want to try, but the lack of funds to buy the fabric! This would be perfect. It’s so expensive to buy here because one store has a monopoly on the fabric biz in town.

  • prentiss

    Use the fabric for my baby’s nursery! I’m 5 months pregnant and have lots of projects in mind for my little bug before she arrives and after.

  • Rhonda

    I would LOVE to actually be able to put all of the good patterns to use that I have been holding onto while on the hunt for quality fabrics.

  • anne

    Wow. I would make a wedding quilt for my friends up in cold cold Alaska!

  • Meggo

    I would make everything. :)

  • Cass McSparin

    My husband and I inherited a couch and love seat set that’s in excellent condition but doesn’t quite match our style. So this would be the plan:
    First: reupholster the couches in “waverly kubu black”
    Second: make lovely pillows in “waverly essence citrine”
    Third: make an outfit for the cat in “waverly essence citrine” so he blends right in.
    Fourth: make outfits for ourselves in “waverly essence citrine” for when the in-laws come over…just kidding. I love my in-laws.
    :)

  • Teri Larsen

    I SOOOO need to make some window treatments for my home! This would be so great to win – spring projects! Yay!

  • Kaitlin

    Everything I’ve been dying to make lately – pillows, dresses, purses, bibs for my nephew. Something from an Amy Butler book, maybe.

  • Adelaide

    Skirts!

  • Sarah

    If I won, I’d make new curtains for the living room and some skirts to get a fresh start on Spring!

  • Hepppp

    Right now, with my small (read no) income, I’m limited to tearing up thrift store finds for tiny scraps of fabric. I need a taste of how real people shop.
    I would like to make some curtains or a canopy bed to impress my partner.

  • wx

    Wow, that’s a lot of fabric to make things with :) I’d first and foremost make a messenger bag – my current one is falling apart. Then I’d probably make some clothes, and get started on my christmas 09 presents :)
    This is such a fantastic giveaway – thanks craftzine!

  • Kimberly

    I would have so much fun if I won the giveaway!
    There are so many things I would make. Mostly dresses for my daughter, a quilt for my sister and one for my mom, a weekend bag for my mom and one for my sister. I could go on forever…

  • Geminica

    Long, breezy flare skirts – professional enough to wear in the office but fun enough for play as well.
    And probably more handbags, because they are so fun & quick to make!

  • Robin

    What would I do? I’d make some diapers for my little boy’s bum. A lot of diapers! Cloth diapers are love!

  • Amy R

    That would definitely work to make a fine wardrobe of skirts this summer. Well, and the material to applique that octopus coat.

  • wendy

    spring skirts, a few new bags & something for the house…I have a chair that desperately needs some attention (besides from the cats).

  • wynk

    Oh man, what wouldn’t I make? I need clothing so badly!

  • Nancy Cook

    I really want to make a quilt – One Girl.
    And, dining room curtains
    Or, I would make clothes for my daughter because I am obsessed! and a summer skirt for me!

  • Jennder

    I’d take a bunch over to my mom’s and finally get her to teach me how to sew a dress. I’d make some pillows for friends and I’d cover this bench that has a really crappy cover right now.

  • wynk

    Oh man, what wouldn’t I make? I need clothing so badly!
    (did this go through?)

  • Holly

    Please oh please! I order from fabric.com about once a month and would love the chance to have a shopping spree for free!

  • natali

    i would make a billion pairs of hot pants for me and the other girl in my band to wear onstage! YES!!

  • eglentyne8

    Well, my babies aren’t babies anymore and they’ve outgrown the small quilts I made them. So, if I won this contest, I think I’d get started making my three boys (4, 6, and 8) Big kid quilts!! That would be so awesome! Thank you for this great giveaway!
    Dani in Portland, TX

  • Melissa Esposito

    Oh wow, the possibilities abound…
    Probably, in this order:
    – backing fabric for a quilt I’m making for a friend’s baby
    – curtains for my new apartment that I’m moving to in three weeks
    – new pillows for the new apartment
    – a new quilt for the new bed in the new apartment!
    Thanks so much for the offer, Craft!

  • Heidi

    I would make little dresses for my sister-in-law’s new twins. And maybe some new tote bags or little fun curtains for my book nook.

  • Pixie Shtick

    I’m totally addicted to fabric. Usually I let the fabric itself inspire me in what I should make. But I like making toys the best.

  • kjerstiye

    I think the better question would be to ask “what wouldn’t I make with all that great fabric”!
    I am super keen to make a spring coat right now (which in my part of the northern hemisphere means a less heavy winter coat!) and anyone of those gorgeous fabrics would make perfect spring-y lining!

  • Amy

    I would make me some clothes, and a bundle of reusable shopping bags.

  • cheryl

    I’d make lots and lots of handbags for my friends and family
    …. and toys for my kitty!

  • Jessa

    I would probably try my hand at quilting, or make some cute skirts for my sister and me. With that much fabric, possibilities are endless!!

  • Bellkiss Abril-Roman

    Lately I’m all about sewing and teaching my 10 year old how to make cute accessories. We are having a great time and have had lots of great ideas from this blog.
    Thanks and…
    pick me, pick me :D

  • Debbie

    I’d have to say the first thing I would do is make a bunch of bags for my groceries. I would love to have different ones for different types of food (i.e. meat, poultry, dairy etc). Then I think ideally I would just start making clothes. I am a clothes addict but obviously would prefer to make my own. I’m new to sewing but it’s coming along better than I could imagine. With all this material, I could really get my spring/summer wardrobe to where I want it to be and feel that I accomplished something!
    Either way this is a great content and thanks for letting me enter!

  • Brandy

    I’d probably try my hand at making more clothes for me – maybe a shirt. I’m always making stuff for others and haven’t sewn clothes for me in years!

  • Whitney

    I would learn to make dresses and skirts, and bags. Basically I’d learn to sew :-)

  • Stephanie

    I would make my two dogs new beds and sew myself some new skirts and sun dresses – things I can’t afford right now with the economy so bad.

  • SparklePaw

    I would absolutely love to win this gift certificate! I would make lots of pretty summer dresses to frolic around in! Thank you for the opportunity.

  • Robyn

    Wow, this would be a fab prize! I would probably start by making some simple spring skirts, and then maybe even attempt a summer dress. And if I’m getting REALLY wild, a new bag to match said skirts and dresses. Whew, I know. W. I. L. D. :-) Thanks for the chance to win, Craftzine!

  • Tabitha

    Oh, wow! I would make a quilt OR maybe I’d go for sewing some clothes. For a while I’d just gaze at all the wonderful fabric!

  • harleyknitter

    It seems that quilting is the new trends so i would like to sharpen my quilting skill and I need some shade cloth for my patio. Enjoy your monday.

  • Karen

    OH BOY THIS IS EXCITING!
    I am currently redoing my sewing room so I think I would start there with some curtains, memo board and put some in frames as artwork.
    Then I would add to my stash to motivate me when the time is right!
    Thank you!

  • SparklePaw

    I would love to win this gift certificate. I would make lots of sweet summer dresses in to frolic around. Thank you for the opportunity!

  • bumblesandlu.wordpress.com

    I think I might actually get around to finishing up a summer-weight quilt for our bed. and maybe whip up a few summer skirts for myself.

  • macy

    Hmmmm. . . .$250 should make quite a few new dresses for the girls, and maybe I’ll finally get around to making a cute quilt (or 2 or 3) for my sweet new babe! Thanks so much! Amazing!!!!!!

  • The Empress of Ice Cream

    Oh my goodness! Well, I’ll tell you precisely what I would do with it — I would put it all towards my wedding. I am making myself a bouquet out of fabric. I have invited my family and friends to send me buttons to incorporate as well, so that my bouquet will not only never wilt or die, but that I will always have a little bit of everyone I love in it, while I walk down the aisle.
    I’m also making the bouttonieres and my bridesmaid’s bouquet in the same style, and more fabric is needed!
    Additionally, I was planning on making one extra flower for each of my guests, to set at their places at the tables, as well as some fabric flower arrangements for the table certerpieces, but as of right now I cannot afford all of the fabric to make these things happen.
    This would allow me to have enough fabric to create all of the flowers I need plus more for the centerpieces, and even enough to make extra corsages and bouttonieres for my fiance’s and my parents and close family.

  • lissa

    What would I make? The first three things that come to mind are:
    *Fabric so my mother can start quilting again.
    *Make wedding gifts for my friends tying the knot this summer.
    *And a dress for myself for when I attend those functions.

  • Jessica

    I would finally make the quilted bedspread of my dreams. Also, I would buy the prefect fabric for my awesome craigslist chair, and re-upholster it.

  • barelyknittogether.com

    If he knew I was trying to bring *more* fabric into this house he would be just a wee bit upset. And puzzled. And maybe, maybe just a little mad.
    But if I won I would first make myself the perfect bag with a wallet to match. I dream of such a beast – with spaces for everything I need, made of fabric I love to look at. Ahhhhh. And I would possibly make some curtains for my bedroom, since we’ve lived here for two and a half years and still have none. This *might* appease the DH.

  • Alright In Sort Of A Limited Way For An Off-Night

    Oh, boy… my mouth watered seeing this contest! I do a ton of quilting and am looking for some more modern fabrics which are impossible to find around these parts, so this would be a thrill for me to win. I’m going to have my first niece or nephew soon and need to make a very special quilt for them.

  • veryprairie

    Lovely floaty dresses in spring colors. Definitely one with a full skirt and lots of ruffles in a pale pink. What can I say, I’d like to look like a cupcake!

  • jayembee

    I’m in the middle of designing my perfect outfit and then making multiples with different embellishments and alterations to make a “me uniform.” I’m pretty excited about the idea, and have the pattern ready, all I need now is fabric. Hmmm, maybe you could help me out with that…

  • Hope

    Fabric.com is my crack.

  • melanie

    That would be awesome! I love fabric! My bf hates when I bring more fabric home though! But I always use it. This time, I would use it to make baby stuff, because we have a wonderful new baby boy. I would make a quilt, tons of clothes, fabric toys, a diaper bag, etc. I hope I win. Thanks!

  • Siobhan

    I sew stuffed animals for children whose parents can’t afford toys locally, and overseas, I would be able to stock up for those critters as well as my children’s sewing hour with these fabulous fabrics! Pick my random generator, I love you!

  • nado

    I LOVE fabric.com. I already have plans to make a quilt, but with a win I’d add to that! Kids clothes and more gifts for friends for sure!

  • Nate!

    I’ve been wanting to try my hand at making some of my own clothes, as well as a custom satchel…this would be a great way to get me started!

  • Colleen Murray

    … is what it would seem like to win this prize! I would make Mother’s Day gifts (blouse and capris for Mom and DMIL), summer outfits and new bags for my daughter (who is a teacher and cannot have enough totes), and then get started on early holiday gifts! What fun I will have all summer! Thanks so much for considering my post!

  • nado

    I LOVE fabric.com! I already have plans to make a quilt, but with a win, I’d add gifts for friends to that list for sure!! Awesome!

  • Michelle

    A good friend of mine just hooked me on quilting so I probably would make a quilt with the fabric. Or, I am trying to teach my daughter to sew so I would use this for her to make some of her own stuff.

  • stefalufagus

    If I won this fabric I’d probably sit and stare at it’s beauty for a few days while I tried to narrow down my list of a million projects I could use it for. And I’d have to make sure I chose wisely because there’s nothing worse than feeling you’ve “wasted” fabric on an unworthy undertaking. I’m pretty sure my final project list would include a few cute purse patterns, a crayon roll up for my 3 yr old, a skirt or dress for both my girls and probably and ipod or DS case for my son, and then something crafty and useful for my husband – I think my entire family should benefit from it.
    Thanks fabric.com!

    I’d love to win this to get a bunch of yummy fabric to make some sweet clothes for my new little girl!

  • Michelle

    Great giveaway – fabric.com is amazing, and it would be super fun to add to my stash. I would deffo buy some Kona solids, so I have some basics to use for sashing on quilts… other than that, fabric for Christmas gifts??

  • Laurie

    I would make gift bags! Just in time for summer!

  • Sara L.

    Oh, so many projects, hard to pin one down. I do desperately want to make a new quilt for my bedroom, so that would probably get the lion’s share of the fabric. The rest, for kid clothes! (and maybe something for myself..:)

  • Janine

    I finally just organized the craft room but it would be worth it to make it messy again with all that fabric! Plus I could make myself some new clothes to celebrate losing a bunch of weight recently :) Oooh and a cute dress for my friends’ wedding!

  • Leslie

    I’m in desperate need of some fabric for my “baby” quilt for my youngest son who will be turning two soon. This would get my butt in gear!

  • kuklagirl

    I just got a book with patterns to make skirts and bags. I would blow that book up!!!!

  • Jessie

    My goal for this summer is to become more comfortable with garment sewing, so I’d make myself some clothes!

  • Eva

    Wao!!!! what a cool giveaway!!! all the fabric there is so beautiful!!!

  • yankie

    I would love to make a few things for my classroom – cushions for the reading area, a quilt or two for the cot and bench, doll quilts for the home corner, a picnic blanket, display area covers, and perhaps a couple of table cloths for special snack times, bunting for the outdoor play area….

  • Stephanie

    Blankets. Definitely blankets and couch pillows. Maybe some clothes.

  • Marya

    I would finally start on all of those vintage patterns I found at the thrift store! Why didn’t they come with fabric on their own?

  • Helen

    Please, please pick me. I just started sewing and this would be the perfect way to get an amazing collection of fabric. I would makes skirts, bags, purses, clutches, aprons… oh my, the possibilities are endless! It would be a blast! Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  • betsyann

    Wow…quilts, and gifts, and clothes for my daughter, and a new tablecloth, and some bunting…

  • orata

    I would make a full-skirted, 50’s-style dress (Vogue 8446?) from Anna Maria Horner’s Garden Party fabric–the swirly red and white art nouveau print that is home dec weight, so very pricey, but gorgeous. And I would continue on my quest to make everything out of Heather Ross’s Weekend Sewing.

  • Laura

    I have an awesome pattern for a capelet to wear while driving on chilly days! I even have some fabric from fabric.com picked out. After I made that, I would make a diaper bag for a friend and a whole slew of other things!

  • Heather G.

    We are in the process of buying our first house so I would use the GC to buy fabric to make drapes and throw pillows and other home decorating items =)

  • Darice

    That’s a super easy question… I’d make about 80 of the purse patterns that have been featured on Craft magazine!

  • noribeads

    It would be so awesome to have all that fabric! I made my first pouch yesterday (quite cute I must say!) using a pattern I bought on Etsy. I look forward to buying more cutie patterned fabric for future projects~!!

  • Darice

    I’d make a ton of the bags you feature patterns for! Going to review everything I’ve bookmarked (slobber)

  • Queenie

    That’s an awesome gift card! I don’t even know what I would make with all those beautiful fabrics; there’s a laundry list of things I want to make, I know there would be some really happy kiddos (& mommies) with new goodies!

  • CindyP

    I have just recently caught the quilting bug……This would finance my very first real quilt…I could recreate quite a few items that need updating in this house!! What an awesome giveaway!

  • Heather

    I have a dining room desperately in need of lots o’ fabric. Re-cover the fabric on the chairs, add curtains, tablecloths with coordinating cloth napkins.
    Thanks for the fabulous prize, good luck everyone!

  • Mark Lively

    To put quilts in. Then I would make quilts to put in it. Then I would quilt a picture of the bag onto the quilts that go into the bag!

  • betsywrites.com

    Ooooh! Fantastic giveaway!
    I would work on a few different things:
    A couple totebags
    throw pillows
    curtains for my bedroom and office
    and a new handbag, perhaps!
    I have a sewing machine I need some practice with, very exciting giveaway, thanks!

  • jellyfisharerad

    What WOULDN’T I make with that much fabric is the real question!! Well, I probably wouldn’t make diapers (no babies), dog sweaters (no dogs), or tea cozies (no teapots). But I would *love* to make a baby quilt (I’ve got a nephew!), a sewing machine cover (I’ve got a sewing machine!), and new spring skirt (I’ve got a torso!).
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • PterodactylPants

    Oh, me please!
    I’d make some baby bibs for my sister, who’s expecting. And Perhaps some new curtains for my unsightly living room windows.

  • Christine S

    Wow! If I were to win I would buy material to make things for our house. We just bought our first home 6 months ago and we have used all our money renovating it and bringing back all its character. Now I am ready to do finishing touches for it–kitchen curtains, pillows, a shower curtain, bathroom curtains, and more. But I need material to do all these things…

  • Suzanne

    It’s silly, but I need to stock up on solids. I want to make a simple quilt made with all solids!

  • Tala

    Holy mother of all that is craft, what wouldn’t I make? I’ve only recently started sewing again after a couple of years hiatus and I’ve got pages upon pages of ideas- both using commercial patterns, and my own ideas that will probably end up in tutorial form eventually.
    Specifics… I’ve got this pattern for an uberdramatic coat I’ve had since middle school which would look best in fabrics I haven’t been able to afford to date. I’ve played a pirate at the local Renaissance Festival for seven years now and could really use a fitting coat or cloak for those rainy days. I’m always on the lookout for cool knit fabrics to use in reconstructing thrift store t-shirts and cool cotton prints for use in just about anything. I want to learn to make corsets. I want to learn to make high-quality bags. I would adore some summer dresses, and finally, I’d love to try quilting. There is so much I’d do with this! Thank you so much for the opportunity to dream.

  • jennie

    wow, that’s a lot of fabric! I’d probably make some summer dresses and/or a slipcover for my sofa.

  • Wehaf

    I would get fabric for three projects: a summer skirt, a baby sling, and a t-shirt quilt (I have all the t-shirts; I just need everything else).

  • crafty1900

    I would make some cute, summery, stuffed animals.

  • Anjali

    I start a sewing class on April 30 – up until now I’ve only used my sewing machine to make pillows and curtains. I have dreams of making much much more – all that fabric would be used in making those dreams a reality!

  • Danielle

    Ooh, I’d buy the fabric for my t-shirt quilt and the knitting needle case I’ve always wanted to make for myself!

  • esjay

    If I won i’d make some much needed sofa cushion covers, some art work for our apartment, which is pretty drab and plain right now!! I’d fix the quilt on our bed! I’d make some Christmas gifts.. and i’d probably even share the prize with my crafty friend!
    I echo the sentiments of everyone else by saying thanku for a chance at such a great giveaway!

  • Moonbeam

    what WOULDN’T i make? i would definitely make some clothes, some dolls and a few pin cushions :)

  • ap_

    What a fantastic giveaway! My apartment is in desperate need of new curtains. $250 worth of new fabric would surely do the trick!

  • nopants_mcgee

    I’d give it to my girlfriend and partner in crime and let her go to town. While I probably could order some pretty pretty fabric for skirts and dresses, she’d actually use it to make stuff that she’d enjoy. It would probably just gather dust and look at me sadly if I used it.

  • Peyton Jayne

    Lots and lots of baby pants!

  • Alyssa Critt

    A QUILT! i have been waiting to have enough cash to buy fabric to make my first quilt with my brrrrrand new sewing machine!

  • Katherine

    …need i say more?

  • ms tea

    i would sew covers for some giant pillows. then we could sit on the floor and drink tea~

  • adrienne

    Wow, I’d share the fabric with friends and we’d all make kids’ stuff. It would become dolls, toys, bags, appliques, name banners, and play crowns (just to name a few).

  • mj

    Well right now I think I’d stock up on patterns, thread, and quilting solids, but I always find something fun on fabric.com!

  • MRS.MOMMYY

    would love this- we make quilts for cancer patients- this would help the budget alot

  • Lauren Wilson

    My husband wants me to make him some hard-wearing pants for rock climbing, so I would get some great fabric for that. I also have been toying with the idea of making my own t-shirts; ones that fit me, that is. I see some great knit patterns!

  • Ali

    I would make gifts for my bridesmaids — clutches!

  • danielle

    I would make myself a dress for a relative’s wedding in September

  • Stephanie

    I would make my husband and I a quilt for our brand new first ever home!

  • sarah k.

    Oh, how I would love a bunch of fabric to make clothes for my kids! I want to learn to work with knit especially, but I also love beautiful cotton and linen.

  • TheOneBlueGecko

    I would use the fabric to make a new quilt, as well as to add to my still tiny stash. I might use some to make some new reusable bags…as well as a the multitude of other craft projects that always demand to be created.

  • Melissa Hamel-Smith

    I have two friends with little ones on the way. I’d love to help clothe them for their first few years! There’s nothing more special than handmade clothing…and when they look back on it, they’ll have special memories.

  • mitch1066

    Well i really want to make myself one of those 3/4 length trench coats i’m seeing everywhere.
    Plus Hubby loves to cook for a crowd so i’d like to make some casserole carriers so he’d look really professional bringing in food for the 30+cousins when they get together.

  • Arielle Krohn

    It still feels like winter here in North Dakota but I’m already thinking (daydreaming) about summer. I’d make beach balls, picnic blankets, and a bowling set for my LO.

  • lisa

    Sweet! Well seeing as I just ordered 2 sewing books, I can use this fabric to make every project in these books! Which includes bags, placemats, aprons and a whole bunch of stuff! OOooh! I hope I win!

  • julie

    I’d make some summer skirts for my daughter and me.

  • lowrahk

    I moved into an old house with HUGE windows. We need curtains desperately. I would love to pick some complimenting fabrics to trim my thrifted sheets that I plan to make curtains out of. Then would come the matching pillows, and the coordinating slip covers… The possibilities are only limited by how many hours I can spend at the machine!!

  • jbrazell68

    What a generous giveaway, I have been making premmie blankets for our local childrens hospital. If I won I would be able to make several hundred blankets.

  • KushielsTart

    I just got my first serger this week, and I got a subscription to Burda Style for Christmas, so I so need fabric!

  • Christopher Weeks

    It’s time for all the curtains in the house to be replaced and we’re adding up the expenses and…putting it off. I’d make new curtains.

  • Margie Bennett

    I would make clothes for my 3 kids. I would make some purses & a few new quilts. Probably some new tops for me too! Thats alot of beautiful fabric!!

  • Kerry Walker

    Wow! That would be wonderful! I’ve been wanting to make a quilt for my bed for a while now, but fabric in New Zealand is so expensive. This would be the perfect opportunity to finally make a quilt that I could keep for myself!

  • Anne-Marie

    What a wonderful suprise today :)

  • snickel

    I’m just starting to learn how to sew and I would love to make an amazing quilt to throw on the bed.
    And maybe a skirt, that’d be fun too.

  • Lisa

    Wow! What a generous give away! What couldn’t I make with that much fabric?? Start with purses and bags, and then on to the quilt I keep saying I’m going to start making!

  • Jen

    If I won, I’d redo my historical recreation wardrobe! 14/15th cent Persian, FTW!

  • Alice

    I’d make summer dresses, as well as stuffed animals.

  • Lisa

    Wow! What a generous give away! What couldn’t I make with that much fabric! I’d start off with purses and bags, then on to the quilt I keep saying I’m going to make!

  • Jamie

    I’m working my way through Heather Ross’ Weekend Sewing, so I’ve got several projects that I’m looking forward to… The smocked sundress for my daughter, the Saturday Night halter/skirt set and all weekend sundress for myself… Maybe the everthing tote, and the kimono top and bloomers as a baby gifts. So many ideas, so little fabric! (and time!)

  • becca

    I think I’d try a nice summer dress.

  • pingdot

    Would love to see what I could make with that!

  • Susan Kelley

    A dress, and curtains. Both of them in bright, springtime colors. I’ve also been toying with the idea of re-upholstering my car… This would be a huge incentive.

  • loveandasandwich.etsy.com

    I would make ahh ahh… tons of toys! tons of them, lots of monsters. and I would make moleskine pouches, and I would make fabric art on canvas, and ummm i would make little coin purse pouches. :D

  • Jamie

    I’m working my way through Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross at the moment. So I have lots of projects that I could use some new fabric for… The smocked sundress for my daughter, the Saturday Night halter/skirt set for myself, maybe the everything tote… even the kimono top and bloomers as a baby gift. So many ideas, so little fabric! (and time, of course!)

  • missshelbyraye

    well, considering im moving into my first home outside of my parents, i would buy fabric to make pillows, curtains, fabric organizer boxes, maybe some maternity tops (im 8 months) and baby toys. YAY!! i would have sooooo much fun. too much fun.

  • Pawdua

    I’d make curtains for all the windows. We moved 17 months ago and since we have miniblinds I haven’t put up any curtains yet. The cats and the kid love it but it ain’t very pretty
    Pawdua

  • Carrie

    I would make a bunch of quilts if I won this prize. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

    Ooo – the things I could make!! I think I would start with a quilt for my baby girl!

  • jewels

    quilts! and costumes!

  • cactus wren

    I would definitely make a quilt or two, I’m just learning how to quilt. Definitely some summer dresses/clothes for my kids, money is tight these days and making them with free fabric would be a big savings. I bet I could think of some Christmas presents to create with this, too – that would be a huge bonus!

  • byronmagoo

    My love for fabric.com continues to grow. :)
    I would make curtains for my house, a bedskirt and headboard, a gum drop pillow, and if there is anything left over, maybe a skirt for myself as a reward.

    Quilts, for sure.

    Oh my word… this is a dream come true… I would definitely learn how to quilt… finally!

  • nicolars

    Wow, I wouldn’t just make one thing — there are so many things I could make with $250! A new dress for me, a few nice summer outfits for my daughter, and there might even be enough fabric left to make a nice quilt or blanket.

  • Nichole

    That is quite a giveaway. Who wouldn’t want that!!! I would probably make several wall pieces for my bare walls, and get started on some Christmas present quilts! Never too early to start! Thanks!

  • Bear

    Holy moly! What an exciting giveaway… Craft rocks.

  • hotcakes

    You don’t have to ask me twice.
    If I won a bunch of free fabric, I would make the big fat quilt of my dreams that is always floating around in my head, but that I am too poor to purchase the gobs of fabric it would require to make.

  • Gretel Shuvzwichinstov

    If I win I’ll make my kids some snazzy new summer clothes, make some new pillow covers for the living room, and start on a new quilt I’ve been wanting to make for a while now.

  • michal

    i hope i win! i hope i win!

  • Vicki

    I’d make new spring clothes for myself, out of some of that bamboo/cotton fabric fabric.com’s been advertising. And a silk dress to wear to weddings this summer — maybe the Kimono dress from Weekend Sewing.

  • byronmagoo

    My love for fabric.com continues to grow. :)
    I would make curtains for my house, a bedskirt and headboard, a gum drop pillow, and if there is anything left over, maybe a skirt for myself as a reward.

  • snoozebar

    I *just* bought my first sewing machine on Saturday, and I am stoked to make stuff.
    I want curtains, and I’ve been eyeing various apron patterns all over the craft blogs. So that’s what I’d do.

  • michal

    clothes, more fun plush stuff, and i’ll share in the spoils with my two beginner sewing friends (got to spread the addiction. wha-haha!)

  • Gretel Shuvzwichinstov

    If I win I’ll make my kids some snazzy summer outfits, throw together some new pillow covers for the living room, and start on a quilt I’ve been wanting to do for a while now.

  • Rebecca

    Well, besides feeding my addiction, I would make a wedding quilt for me!

  • prudence rabbit

    me, me! pick me! *raises hand and waves it wildly in the air*

  • april forshee

    Learn to quilt. Make aprons for my friends!

  • Katie

    I would make quilts, quilts and more quilts… though I really do need to make a new purse and wallet.

  • Staisey

    First, I would try that dress pattern I’ve been looking at. I’ve not sewed any clothes yet, just small quilts. This gift certificate would broaden my craftiness!

  • Rachelle

    I would love to win $250 to Fabric.com
    I’d make some bags, kids capes for play time, and lots of quilts and blankets!

  • Tiffany

    I would make lots more baby and kid gifts…homeade gifts are so much more fun than the store bought ones :)

  • eisleyae.myopenid.com

    I am moving to a new apartment soon, right out of college [my first apartment!] and I would love to have some fabric to make curtains, pillow, a matching shower curtain, and i even have some ottomans that need reupholstering! maybe ill have enough left to make a skirt.

  • Pipian7

    How delicious are these fabrics that you are giving away!!
    It would be wonderful to win, however, whomever is chosen may you sew to your hearts desire and create pieces that inspire.
    Personally I would sew handbags for gifts and I might sneak one in for myself.
    Thanks fabric.com for this offer.
    Blessings and Good Luck to All!!!

  • Lisa Jordan

    I definitely know what I would make. I’ve just had my first baby girl after 3 little boys. I’ve been saving some vintage patterns from the 40s and 50s – adorable little dresses and bonnets for which I need *just the right fabric* that I haven’t been able to find locally. With this prize, I’m sure I could make the perfect little heirloom dress for my little nugget.

  • kate droste

    i would make soft books of the states for my niece. i want to make soft books that have the state flower, state tree, state animal etc., starting with Michigan where she lives & Vermont where i live.

  • Kelley M

    The FIRST thing I would make is a sock monkey quilt. I have been wanting one forever. Then i will be making my little munchkin some new dresses. I am pretty sure, I would have NO problem using up every last scrap of fabric :)

  • Jesselyn

    WOW! If I won, I would use the money to buy fabric to reupholster my couch that is MUCH nicer than what I can actually afford!

  • Shani

    Endless things bags cases purses clothing .

  • madreblair

    This is a great giveaway, definitely would put to use the fabric for quilting.

  • Jennifer

    Anything from lingerie to skirts to reusable grocery bags!

  • Candace

    Wow! I would LOVE to win this. I’d use the fabric to make clothes for myself & my daughters & maybe some quilts too. keeping my fingers crossed! :)

  • Chana

    I would make maybe some velvet pants, which i’ve been wanting for a long time, even though they’re out of season. And a summer quilt! and a couch cover! and a hammock!ohmigosh, I would be so excited!

  • Jennifer

    Oh Boy. I’m make so many things. The first of which is a quilt for my bed. We can never find blankets big enough for it. I woul also make clothes for my 2 little girls and fabric buckets for the play room. It’s be so nice to give everything their 0wn place.
    Thank your the opportunity,
    Jennifer
    goddess_jenny @ mystic-caverns dot net

  • jserdnom

    What an awesome prize! I would buy some really nice upholstery fabric to finally finish the kitchen chair rehab I have been in the middle of. Also some fabric to make a new skirt for summer.

  • Jessica

    we’re about to buy a new house and there will be 1000 projects that require cool fabric. New curtains? Covering new dining room chairs? Making cool wall hangings for my daughter’s room? Pillows! Pillows!

  • Kyla

    I have recently come home from the hospital after surgery, and I really want to make some gifts (scrubs, quilts, etc) for the nurses that took care of me while I was there. I am one of the unlucky that will never bring my baby home from the hospital, and I really don’t think I could have gotten through this without the support of those amazing women.
    Many had commented on the lack of time to shop for decent looking & fitting scrubs, so that is what I would like to make :)

  • Maggie

    Wow, I’m just learning to sew and really want to make a quilt, and a million other projects! Thanks so much!

  • WaterPixie

    Quilts, stuffed animals, doggie toys, curtains, pajamas, aprons, ……

  • Aggie

    quilts, quilts…more quilts.

  • Kyla

  • Mistress of Evil Incarnate

    I would a quilt for ME. Not one to give away (for once) but one for me myself to keep. Preferably with as many different cute cat fabrics in it as I can find to buy. :)

  • cdsedlar

    I’ve been wanting to try my hand at making totes and purses. This would be a wonderful way to get new fabric as my crafting budget is currently on hold due to auto repairs. :( The good thing is I’ve been really focused on reusing/recycling to get me thru this time so at least I’m not in total “craft withdrawal”. Thanks so much for the give-away!!

  • callieapp

    I would use tons of different fabrics to make a seriously scrappy quilt. What fun!

  • baileygirl5

    What would I make! Oh my …. my head is spinning! I’d definitely make some new funky curtains for my living room first of all. I’d probably make some cool pillows too. Hmmmm…. I’d love to make some quilts for some family and friends. I’d also love to sew some cute stuff for my niece’s room. Aprons too!!!

  • Caroline M.

    To add to the sentiment going around: HOT DAMN, what a giveaway!
    I wish I had a super important or extravagant goal (“I design and sew outfits to give to homeless inner-city orphans”), but honestly, the first thing I would do is sew myself a contra dancing (like square dancing for people up north) skirt with some decent twirl, because everything I’ve ever bought from a store falls short.
    Then I would sew myself a dress is the strong likeness of one that I saw at a vintage store for approximately one squillion dollars (okay, so, I exaggerated there). My roommate said “don’t buy that, I have a pattern just like it! We’ll make you one!” But I don’t have fabric.
    The only reason these are particularly notable projects, is because I in general can sew little more than a straight line, and I brought my sewing machine to college with me in order to make my roommate teach me how to sew, but I just cannot bring myself to spend a lot of money on fabric for a skirt/dress when I suspect I’ll be messing up. At least at first.
    Anyway, that comment ran a little long, but summary: $250 towards home-made girly clothes for college student learning to sew. :]
    Thanks in general for the giveaway!

  • Pippa

    Ooooooo! I would make a layered apron. Then I’d make a plushie. Then I might make ruffled apron. Then I might make a wrap-up pencil holder. Then I might make another apron (I went on an online apron-making class but haven’t had any fabric to make one yet!). Pick me!

  • Dani

    Some cute little dresses or skirts for my nieces, some neato-frito shorts for my nephews and maybe even a Summer skirt for myself.

  • Emily S

    Someone is incredibly generous!! If i won, i would finally be able to recover a bunch of furniture that is just screaming for some awesome prints!

  • Julie Campbell

    OOOOH! I’ve been looking for a good online fabric store. I need fabric to make therapeutic rice bags (fill fabric with rice, add essential oils, & microwave — then put on your neck, back, etc. They’re WONDERFUL!)

  • Caroline T

    What a giveaway!!! I would use it to offset the costs of making reusable grocery bags for a fundraiser for the refugee girl scout troop I work with!!!

  • kat

    I’ve got several quilts that are waiting to be finished- this would be GREAT!

  • Dani

    Some cute dresses or skirts for my nieces, some neat-frito shorts for my nephews and maybe even a nice Summer skirt for myself!

  • Ellie

    Curtains!!

  • mommymae

    i would stock up on material for future projects/hoarding or buy material to reupholster the midcentury couches i just bought.

  • Rachel

    Wow, that is a lot of fabric. To start with, I would make a quilt for my bed. I am always making quilts for others but never for myself. I am thinking a nice pale blue summer quilt would look lovely. Then I would make some summer skirts. Can you tell that I want summer to come NOW?!?

  • LisaMarie

    I would definitely make the reversible wrap skirt from my CRAFT: volume 6 magazine. And I would scale down the pattern and make two of them for my twin baby girls.

  • thea_lamo

    I am going to be a first grade teacher next year, and I am planning all sorts of things to make for my classroom: Beanbags, Crayon Pouches, comforting blankets, and curtains for the chalkboard!

  • Hrobud

    OHH! I would make lots of fun clothes for all of my friends kids. I would love to win!

  • absurdlyvulgar

    this is a great giveaway!
    i would make a new duvet cover for my bed, then make some reusable shopping bags, then maybe some skirts…the possibilities are endless!

  • Kriti

    with that much fabric i would make curtains for my den and sew a new spring/summer wardrobe. especially skirts and wrap dresses!!!!

  • Anjuli A.

    What a fabulous giveaway! I would love to make some cheerful curtains and complementary pillows for my new apartment in the fall, and maybe some reversible placemats if I could find some cute oilcloth!

  • hepkittenatplay

    I would pick out a few Lonni Rossi prints for a home project, then share the rest of the certificate with my mom!

  • Maria

    How exciting!! My first project would be a skirt. I have been making curtains and pocketbooks, but now would like to start making clothes. I hope I win!!

  • Katie

    I would buy the fabric for my wedding quilt. I have seen at weddings instead of a guest book or photobook, you set out pieces of precut fabric and a fabric pen. The guests sign each piece of fabric and you go home and make a quilt out of it. I LOVE this idea, but I have never made a quilt before and I don’t know if I want to undertake this huge project as a newbie. But if I won and could buy all my fabrics, I will definitely do it.

  • gadgetgirlnz

    A life-sized Twitter fail whale with all his little birdies. I think the whale could be a beanbag chair, and then you could sit on him with all the birds flying around your head! I’d also attach some of the fabric to foam board and mount it on the wall in my studio as art.

  • Kara

    I’d not only make my boss the outfit imaginable for the daughter she’s expecting, I’d use the remainder of the money to donate fabric to the Costume Shop I work at through my university– that way I’d know it’d serve a good purpose… making more art!

  • happycho

    I would make my two wonderful nieces the cutest little outfits!

  • Kimberly

    I apologize if this posted more than once. I had problems with the verification part…
    I would have so much fun if I won the giveaway!
    There are so many things I would make. Mostly dresses for my daughter, a quilt for my sister and one for my mom, a weekend bag for my mom and one for my sister. I could go on forever.

  • Justine

    I have so many things I would love to do with that much fabric, especially since I’m contemplating doing some crafty stuff with an eye to sales on etsy or similar, but mostly just because it would be SO MUCH FUN!!!
    I’d buy different types and weights of cotton to make tea towels to print or stamp by hand and trims to go with them, both as gifts for some friends who are marrying and with an eye to a future product line.
    Try making handbags and if that went well I’d try making bags and pouches geared toward disabled people for ease of use to be donated and/or sold
    See if it’s possible to make a cane-cover for my cane to spruce it up.
    Make myself some new comfy dresses.
    Make some camp shirts and pajamas with some wild/fun fabric
    Make my husband the seersucker pants he’s been wanting (or at least get him the fabric to make his own.)
    Start experimenting with making plushies, again for donations and/or sale

  • TexasWren

    I was just on fabric.com yesterday, dreaming. I’d do pillowcases, patchwork toys, baby things, book covers, and other pretty projects to make my friends and family happy!!

  • Shelley Jennings

    Oh fabric.com, what wouldn’t I make from fabulous free fabric? Skirts are a must, but I would also endeavor to make what I call “good karma” bags: simple handbag/tote designs to give away to friends and random strangers, passing my good karma on to the next person with a delightful finished product. I have other good karma ideas, too, but the bags are the first thing I thought of – GOOD KARMA FOR EVERYONE!

  • Amanda

    I would really like to make so items for Handmade Help. They are a group that has been set up here in Melbourne, Australia to help provide handmade items to those who lost so much in the recent devastating bush fires.

Handmade Help are also taking donations of fabric to help people to restart their fabric stash.
    Thanks craftzine & Fabric.com for such a great giveaway.

    Then I’d get started on a spring/summer wardrobe for my darling daughter (and maybe a couple skirts for Momma).

  • ChibiAmagaeru

    I would use it to make a wedding present for my sister and other presents for the bridal party. If I have anything left over, I would use it to make lots of Christmas presents for friends and family instead of wasting money on less personal gifts.

    I embroider and would love some beautiful cottons to embellish

  • anntje

    I would make some more baby quilts for all the babies that keep popping up in all my friends’ arms… then I would be adventurous and try to make some garments for myself.

  • Susan Swartz

    I’d start with some quiltart postcards for the swap I’m behind on, then move on to something larger–maybe a whole quilted piece of art. Fabric to make up for beaded art dolls. I’d also sew up some tote bags and maybe an artist’s smock. I’d love some sheer voile curtains for the summer (we have nothing on our windows now) and some new pillow covers on the couch. The possibilities are endless!
    I love shopping at Fabric.com anyway!!

    That’s a lot of fabric! I would make a quilt, a totebag – maybe a couple of quilts and a bag, a table runner, a wall hanging – some homemade napkins would be cool – and then I could make some crafty party favors for my Book club. I would give some to my daughter – she loves to handsew things and makes clothes for herself. Maybe some handkerchiefs – that would be a cool way to show off your craftiness.
    I hope the winner shows us some of the stuff they make!
    Thanks for the contest!

  • casey ellison

  • brookaloo

    oh my, i wouldn’t know where to begin. being a list-full person, i would start brainstorming projects and then make a fabric list from there. mostly i want to make new projects for the local art fair and the farmer’s market. we make all our own gifts so this would give us a great head start for the holidays.

  • CrissyH

    What wouldn’t I make?? I’ve got some bags earmarked and a couple of skirts I’d like to make for summer. I’m sure I could find a few more projects to make, too. What an exciting contest!!

  • Alison

    I have so many ideas on the back burner right now.
    But the top idea is to make a skirt using LED’s and a button on/off switch. I’ve had the plans for months now and just haven’t had the resources or time to make it.
    Other things I would make:
    A new Renaissance Costume
    Clothes for myself (because you can never have too many)
    Cover some shoes in fabric
    and lots lots more.

  • david renó

    it include wallets and wall decoration

  • m. grace

    Well, with the difficult economy I would probably make clothes for myself and also to sell. I am a college student and I’m trying to make enough money to be able to afford an apartment next year without having to work on top of being a full time art student.
    I also have a friend who just had a baby and would love to make blankets/pillows/toys for the little one!!

  • Audrey

    I am new to sewing. This would be a mighty injection to my puny stash.

  • Ashley McFarland

    I’d love to make a gift for my girlfriend with the prize stash! :)

  • quirkyknitgirl.wordpress.com

    What would I make–hmm, it’s so hard to say! Quilts, or maybe I’d take the plunge and get a new sofa and make a slipcover for it. Or begin my adventures in historical costume sewing…so many choices!

  • Wendy Piersall

    I’ve just started up my second blog network, this time for kids. A recent addition to the network is kids craft blog, so I would order a squillion different kinds of fabrics to make project patterns with to post on the blog.
    *Fingers Crossed!!!*

  • RAKEL

    with spring fever in the air I have so many ideas from cute skirts to new bedding, the list is endless!

  • Clever Karen

    Ooooh, I want new curtains and cushion covers for the kitchen. And a new table runner! The country blue from the 80s needs a refresh1

  • sewbean

    I am working on redecorating my place: paint, curtains, pillows, slipcovers, tableware,…the works. Except for the occasional painting here and there, it’s all gonna be fabric-based, including the wall art.
    And after I’m all done, I’ll probably make myself some new clothes for my whole new place :)

  • .samantha.

    I could get all my Christmas crafting done! My New Year’s Resolution was to make all of my gifts this year. Now is the perfect time to start all the quilts I must get done in the next 8 months :) *FINGERS CROSSED*!

  • elizalou

    My mom and her sisters get together several times a year and make quilts which they donate to a charity group. My quilting skills are pretty non-existent so I’ve never joined them. With $250 in free fabric, however, they can afford to have me ruin a few squares!
    Wait. I cannot lie (especially since the charity group they donate to is group of nuns!). I would have to keep some for myself and make a few aprons or totes. Phew. Confession over.

  • melissa m.

    I would totally make the octopus body pillow I’ve been wanting to make. Also panties. I work as a seamstress at a lingerie company and I have all these ideas for different styles of panties I want to make. Also I have this three piece canvas set of art pieces that I need to make panties for but haven’t had the chance lately to go searching for some awesome crazy looking fabric for.
    And if I had some left I would make a crap load of wrap around skirts, (my favorite), for my friend Katie and I. It is summer after all.

  • Susie

    I would use it to make my first real project! I’m learning to sew right now, and pretty fabric would be just what I need to make my first shirt or dress.

  • Sarah S.

    I would make new curtains for my office/craft room. And re-cover a chair to match!

  • Sarah

    I think I’d attempt to make a quilt. A very, very large quilt.

  • Sarah

    I’m just starting to learn quilting after my great-grandmother left me a half-finished quilt she started 40 years ago. I’m really excited to make my own when this one is finished, though I’m starting to be bummed out by how expensive fabric really is. This would help me a lot!

  • Mariona

    I would sew a “maid of honor” dress…for me!!! My best friend’s wedding is near and I’m sure I would be the best dressed (after the bride, of course!) with so wonderful fabrics!!! XD Oh, and some cotton toys for my nephews, or they wouldn’t talk to me for months!!!!

  • Pat S

    Wow – what a great giveaway!!!
    I’d choose bright, high energy fabrics and I’d make bags, pincushions and a quilt for my daughter whose wedding is on May 16!

  • Dana V.

    I’m WAY into making my 2 year-old daughter dresses… way more into it than she is into wearing them ;-)

  • Val

    I’d sew childrens cloths! I’ve been refashioning thrift store clothing due to the cost of new fabric.

  • Jordan W

    I would sew a lovely fresh summer wardrobe that I’d probably get done just as summer ended.

  • jennyusagi

    My wedding is in November, and I could definitely make use of this! I was already thinking of embroidering handkerchiefs for the parents. I could do something fun for decor or maybe do wedding party gifts as well! Fingers crossed!

  • stacy

    I’m on the search for the perfect pair of pants so I would definitely purchase some pants pattern and fabric. I’m also making more gifts this year for holidays and birthdays so this would be a perfect opportunity to buy some fabrics for those.

  • Devora

    dresses and dresses.

  • Cristy

    I’m a long-time reader but nonmember who’d really love some fabric. I’m learning to sew, slowly. I’m originally more of an artist than a crafter, but I’ve applied that to sewing and have a million ideas! My (rather new) blog is at TossedCookies.Wordpress.com.
    -Cristy

  • Christine

    My mom is a quilter on a fixed income. With a gift certificate I could get her fabric she wouldn’t otherwise be able to get.

  • Sarah H.

    I’d hopefully use the fabric for something for my wedding!

  • Leigh

    What WOULDN’T I make with fabric from here? Goodness – this would seriously do my wallet good – as I am definitely fabric addicted. Purses, aprons, shirts, skirts, quilts… I’d stock up on patterns and books too….

  • JJ Steeves

    Why, I’d make a new line of summer dresses of course!

  • Cynthia Rielley

    I would use the material to help teach othrs the joy of sewing, I make fun wall quilts and crazy soft sculpture creatures. I drool at the thought of free fabric

    Dreaming of all the items I could make….

  • Bethany

    I’d make many more of those reusable snack bags that you featured on your site a while back — I am addicted — to their look, their utility, their environmental wonderfulness, their ease…

    Super fun!

  • Faith

    If I won, I think I would continue making the bags and quilts I do now, although this might spur me on to try my hand at some actual clothing…

  • A’isha

    I would use it to recover my sad old couch that I want to get some more life out of.

    I am working on pillows right now but I would love to sew skirts. Especially with nice fabric of many different colors and patterns for many different people.
    Thanks Craftzine for the opportunity.

  • AmandaWinter

    My list could be endless if I let it…
    * make a cute sailor outfit for our friend’s little boy who’s due in July (they both race sailboats)
    * make a new apron for my mom
    * make a quilt for my grandma (to say thank you for everything she’s done for me!)

    * make some cute outfits for myself!
    * make a handy pocket apron to wear while gardening
    * recover our couch

    Then I would combine those scraps with all the scraps I have to make an heirloom quilt to one day pass down through generations.
    Oh I hope you pick me… Ever since I lost my job, we just don’t have the funds to support my sewing. I could really make $250 go a long way! Thanks!!

    summer play clothes for the kids, yoga pants for me, and pajamas for all of us!

    BACKGROUND
    My fiance proposed to me back in January, a week before doctors discovered a plum-sized mass on his left temporal lobe. He’s since undergone surgery to remove it. On the plus side, he’s doing great now and is feeling better than expected! It was non-cancerous and is very unlikely to ever return. (Yay!)
    We got news just as he was about to go back to work after recovery that the company he worked for was closing and his job was no more. (Boo..) We’re still staying optimistic and we’re trying to plan for a wedding (June 1, 2010) with a very limited budget. With the medical bills, lack of income and hopes for him to claim unemployment/find a new job ASAP, we’re still determined to remain upbeat and do the best with what we have.
    GOAL
    I have my heart set on a vintage 60s tea length wedding dress but being a size 16 in today’s sizes, finding a vintage dress in my size is just not working out. (Especially one that’s affordable) I’m starting to realize that my best bet is to create the dress myself and I truly hope I can find the right pattern and material for it. With $250 in fabric, I’m sure I’ll be able to do just that and probably have plenty for my sister’s (the maid of honor’s) dress as well! It’s been a rough 2009 so far but we’re excited to get past hard stuff and look forward to a future together.
    OUTCOME
    Who knows???

    Hi Fabric.com
    My family and I are moving to Ghana July 31. My husband and I are teachers. We are bringing our 10 and 14 year old girls so that they can learn about more than the comforts of small town life and can have an opportunity to integrate service learning into their everyday curriculum.
    I would love to teach the international students how to make stuffies for the orphans and work with local young women to be creative and enterprising.
    Thanks Fabric.com

  • jody

    I would actually use all of the clothing patterns that I have piled up and would make my daughter and I a new wardrobe with no shopping involved. That would be awesome!!!

  • morrasutherland

    I’ve got a lovely little idea to make a quilted/appliqued, tapestry-style recreation of a favoured piece of comic book art ala the works of George Perez, Alex Ross, or Mike Weiringo to hang in my hubby’s office… maybe even something from the Judas Contract-era Teen Titans…
    A quilted Lovecraftian triptych would also be very fun to work on.

  • Michele P.

    Hubby’s sisters are excellent seamstresses in Guatemala, and since new clothing is not very affordable over there I could pick out some lovely fabrics so that they could sew their own clothing and dresses for the holidays.

  • nesa

    $250 worth of fabric! I would be in heaven! I would send some for my mom to make quilts and make lots and lots of bags and dolls/plushie.

    $250 would buy a whole lot of fabric!
    I’d make an outdoor quilt, a splat mat for my babe, a stroller cushion, and probably a zillion other projects.

  • Laura in Portland

    I was going to enter myself, but after reading all of the comments from the entry posters, I say GIVE THE FABRIC.COM PRIZE TO AMY!! Nothing I would make can compare to the enjoyment and solid generosity of Amy and her family’s use of fabric in Ghana. Heads and shoulders above all the quilts and sundresses, sorry!

  • Elidé

    I´m from Mexico City and i can’t find that kind of fabric here! It’s beautiful!
    I’m starting my own buissness so i would make a lot of plushes with that fabric, plushes that untill now are only on my mind haha!
    Oh please forgive my bad bad english…:)

  • holly

    Yay, Fabric! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Tina Phan

    i would make dresses and skirts for my friend and i who are just learning to swing dance and we would wear them to the swing dancing club.
    usually i just get a hold of fabric scraps or leftover clothes to make things, but $250 worth of fabric is astounding to me! please pick me! :D

  • Jeannie

    There’s just so much on my list. I’d like to re-upholster this amazing vintage loveseat that I rescued from the side of the road, which has been living in my basement wearing sad and tattered plush. Also, mini-quilts for the gals in my wedding party. and a home-brew Snuggie for my mama, since her house is always cold.

  • Andrea

    What wouldn’t I make! I live in a small town, and the closest fabric store is an hour away, leaving me with the Wal-Mart, which has the worst selection ever, it’s tiny. I’d get some lovely jersey as that’s always so hard to find, and make lovely comfy items for summer that travel well

  • Bobby-Jo

    oh my word! that would be absolutely amazing!

  • Meeca Smith

    I want to teach my 14 and 9 yr old daughters to sew this summer. Since their dad will be deploying to Afghanistan soon, we will need something to keep us busy. Not to mention, it would be more of a bonding experience for us.

  • thoushaltcupcake

    I love fabric! This contest is great

  • Nicole

    I’m transfering to the College of Charleston in the fall and I can’t wait! I’m already in the process of making things for my future form, and $250 worth of fabric would be wonderful- I’d make curtains, a laundry bag, pillowcases, and not to mention gifts for my future roommates- I’m thinking fabric-covered hangers. I’m also looking into joinging a quilting guild when I move, and when I do I could help with the guild’s projec tof makeing cuddle blankets for sick kids in the hospital and in foster care. Thanks for the chance to win, craftzine!

  • Emilie

    I would make some sundresses for summer, would make some Christmas tree skirts for some friends who were admiring mine, and would do some other crafty stuff!!
    Thanks for the chance!

  • sec

    What a great giveaway! I’ve been in the mood to make summer garments lately with lots of floral prints.

  • Sarah Lee

    Winning this wonderful giveaway would allow me to further my efforts with my project Helping Handbags (www.HelpingHandbags.webs.com). Not only would I be able to use some fabulous fabric, but receiving the fabric for free would allow me to donate even more to the Children’s Miracle Network! Please select me so I can help the lives of kids across the US! :)

  • Heather Jane

    Baby blankets, patchwork balls, sundresses, curtains for my dining room. This list is endlessly endless.
    http://www.living-senses.blogspot.com

  • Tom Workman

    I would make a fabric based diorama depicting the battle between the Enterprise and Kahn in the Mutara Nebula, from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn. I would cut the fabric into swirls to represent the nebula, and make stuffed versions of the Enterprise, the Reliant, Ceti Alpha V, and a tiny torpedo for Spock.

  • Meg

    I would make a huge, huge, huge banner {did i mention it would be big} spelling out “i ♥ fabric.com”. Oh… and some market totes for all my eco crafty friends.

  • Jennifer Ladd

    I would LOVE to win all this fabric. I have such a long list of projects to do, but I can’t bring myself to spend the money on something for myself …
    curtains for my sewing room
    fabric to cover my dining room chairs
    summer skirts
    dresses for my daughter
    a new diaper bag
    the list goes on and on!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  • trinkers

    I would make some nifty knitting bags to hold my projects while I’m on the go. I’d also make some pillows for our apartment, and probably a nice little bed for the kitty.
    Rebecca

  • LisaB

    I’m super new to sewing and really want to start using nice fabrics so that I can get really excited about my finished products! I’d really like to start making clothes.

  • culturalcatgirl

    I’d make a very mod and Bollywood-ish shift dress for my best friend’s birthday at the end of the month! And then some kitty toys and also one of those pet beds made from recycled suitcases that I’ve been seeing everywhere!

  • Adel

    What would I make?! What WOULDN’T I make?! Totes, pillowcases, beanbags, clothes/shorts/sundresses (summer is coming!), blankets and cute li’l baby things (babies are coming, too!) maybe even some plushies/stuffies… I live out in the countryside here in the beautiful state of IOWA; the closest fabric store is 20 miles away and I visit the 4 fabric-sellers in my area FAR too often, lol! LOVE IT! Great contest! Thanks for the opportunity! Good luck everyone!

  • Cory

    Winning this fabric would certainly brighten up this crafter’s month! I would love to use the fabric to make a quilt for my new daughter. We just moved to Australia from California, so my quilt will have applique handprints and body outlines of all of her relatives so she can compare herself to them as she grows!

  • NightChae’d

    I’d like to say that I’d do something selfless and amazing, but I’d probably make curtains, bedding, and furniture covers for my first apartment.
    ~Chae

  • mikamika

    I would love to use the fabric to a summer dress or a tunic and some quilts.

  • Malka

    I would like to sew quilting blanket to our bedroom….
    So many projects from craftzine – I kept to sew – now I’ll have a chance:-)
    Many thanks for the giveaway
    I visit Fabric.com – great sales they have, and so many fabrics patterns!!

  • Katelyn

    i would make lots of fun clothes for my daughters!

  • Sue

    i’d get loads of lovely patterned fabrics
    then turn them into fabric badges.
    I’ll then give away loads of them at my next craft fair.

  • Nalie

    I would certainly make some new clothes for my girls.
    Thank you so much!

  • Kate

    I would sit down and make everything in Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol. Twice.

  • KYouell

    I would most definitely be making some clothes and some quilts. I’d love for my kids to have something from me. Right now all their clothes are from Freecycle or gifts from the grandparents, and I’d like to make them some cute clothes. Then I’d start to work on some nice quilts for next winter. In addition to all that I think that I’d need to get some yellow and blue fabric to make some baby quilts to include in welcome bags for new parents from NWDSA (Northwest Down Syndrome Association — check them out at http://www.nwdsa.org).

  • scouttle

    … I would make, in no particular order, a number of new summer skirts for myself, a wrap to put my knitting needles in, and a quilt for my mom.

  • Andi

    I would make dresses for my daughter. And maybe line some crochet purses.

  • Will

    I love Fabric.com so much. Off the top of my head I’d make a dress for a new doll.

  • Violet

    I guess I would have to start with the quilts that I have dreamed of for my daughter and son. Now that our little family is complete, I want to make them something they’ll can keep forever.
    -violet

  • Vilma

    If you’d pick me I would have fabric to make all the ideas in my head: Purses, wallets, boxes covered with fabric, baby’s shoes, toys for my nephew, accessories for dolls,…
    So many ideas! I think the hard part would be to choose wich project to begin ;)

  • Cath

    I’d learn how to properly use my sewing machine and make a few project bags for knitting and cross stitch. And then I’ll make a dress for me :) Or a cute shirt ^_^

  • Katherine

    I’m always making crafty things for other people, which I love — there’s nothing like a handmade gift. But I never make anything for myself. I think I’d make myself a light, soft, comfortable quilt, perfect for cuddling up on the sofa with a book on a rainy afternoon.

  • summernightsmiles.wordpress.com

    What wouldn’t I do with all this fabric? ;-)
    I think I would finally get the chance to move on from handbags and smaller projects to sewing clothes. Also, I could buy all those great Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner etc. prints I can’t get where I live… =)

  • Jessica

    I would LOVE to have some fancy new threads. I thrift most of my fabric and sometimes deny myself new cloth. This would be a fantastic treat!

  • jessica

    Whoops! I would make diapers for my baby due in June and I would also make quilts for all the new friends I have made who will be having babies this year.

  • Sidney

    I’m in a sorority (AEPhi) and every spring my chapter holds a silent auction for the Elizabeth Glazer Pediatric Aids Foundation (EGPAF). I would make pillows, plushies, and all sorts of fun things college students would like to by and donate them to my chapter’s philanthropy event.

  • ClaireP

    I’d love to win! I think I’d have to make lots of lovely items for my baby girl who is due in July. It might give me a kick up the bum to start her nursery!!!! :)

  • Lillian

    There would be enough fabric to make gifts for my boys, my family and friends. Just something special for them to treasure and for them to know that someone is thinking of them.

  • Mai

    If I were picked, I’d make a couple skirts I am dying to sew, a few extra totes and groceries bags and some bibs for the babies around me. Oh, and quilts, quilts, quilts!
    Awesome giveaway!

  • BlueAndGreenDesigns

    I would have a blast. I’d make stuffed dinosaurs for my sons and nephews, handbags, pillows.

    Awesome giveaway!

  • amhv

    My son will be a freshman at college next year. I am making a quilt using some of his favorite shirts and what is left of some of his old quilts and blankets.
    The fabric from fabrics.com (which he would pick) would be used to complement the older fabric and complete the quilt.
    Alicia Vittal

  • Ann

    planning to do a quilt for a friend, he will have a baby in few months :D
    Best wishes from Europe

  • Barbara

    If I were picked, I would sew a cute cover for my sofa and with the leftovers, I would do a hard drive comfy.
    Cheers from Spain!!
    Bàrbara

  • kelly

    I’ve been working on patchwork table runners for my wedding, so I’d probably select a bunch of fabrics for that — my plan is to use them later to make a quilt.

  • Bugsy

    After living through the recent bushfires here in Victoria Australia and feeling so helpless to help those who were directly affected, i have been knitting and sewing blankets and quilts for those who lost everything. All i have been able to use are scraps i have here or that people have donated to me, as i lost my job before Christmas and money has been super tight. It would be lovely to have the opportunity to purchase gorgeous fabrics like fabric.com have to make quilts for such deserving people.

  • DianeH

    Wow – great giveaway! I would completely redecorate my
    sewing/guestroom.

  • Totoro

    There’s going to be an increase in the head count of our family and it would be lovely to welcome the new member with handmade items (quilt, toys etc.).

  • kerrydd

    I’d make some new spring skirts, a quilt (I recently took a class with Denise Schmidt…now I have all sorts of ideas!), some home accessories, and probably just grab some beautiful fabric to keep in my stash for future projects!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • mub

    I’m in feeling in rather desperate need of new curtains!

  • cinnascents

    Love Fabric.com
    Would make some beautiful little girl clothes!!
    Brenda

  • Aimee Bush

    I would make a skirt or two, a shirt I started designing last summer, a quilt/picnic blanket, doll dresses for a dozen little girls I know, presents for people…

  • Michelle

    If I won this prize I’d pick out a ton of quilting fabrics and quilting material to use with my Project Linus group!

  • Michelle

    If I won this contest I would buy a ton of quilting supplies for my Project Linus group.

  • Ida in Central Pennsylvania

    If I won this wonderful prize, I would finish several UFO’s including quilts for two Navy Sailors (one active duty, one recently retired).
    It also seems that I am always giving away my quilts. Perhaps, with the winnings, I would make a quilt to keep for myself.

  • Shanna

    first i *heart* fabric.com BIG time! i currently live overseas in kuwait so i use them ALL the time for my fabric needs! i would so love to win this prize because i’ve got fabric waiting in a saved cart for me! i live in a furnished apartment and the couches are dingy and a horrible gold color (not to mention that my drapes are the same color too!) so i would love to buy fabric to make pillows to break up all the gold and some fabric to reupholster the even uglier dining chairs. pick me! pick me!!!

  • mikatana

    I have a farmers market booth. I would make cloth dolls and marionettes and pinnies!! With my husband still blessed to have a job but recieving a full third less work, I don’t have $$ for fabric (plus the fact that the nearest fabric store is almost 50 miles away) for making items. But, if I won, I might be able to help out the houehold more.

  • Sarah

    I need another interview suit. This would be the perfect opportunity to make another one. I made some really nice work clothes with some of the light-weight wool suitings from Fabric.com before. They carry the best facbrics.

  • Melissa

    I’d make lots of pretty Spring dresses for myself and all my neighbors!

  • Journie

    I would make kick a$$ outfits for myself, my brother and his girlfriend for RenFest this summer!

  • Kate

    I am a member of the Niagara Highland Athletics Club. We organize and run Scottish Games (i.e. we throw telephone poles and other heavy stuff around while wearing kilts). We are very proud of our Celtic heritage! I would use this to make kilts for our junior throwers. A kilt is an expensive investment especially for a growing boy. I make entry level kilts for these kids so they can afford to participate and learn more about Scottish heritage… whether or not their blood runs plaid or not!

  • Anne

    – summer clothes for my 18 mo. old daughter
    – summer quilts for my family
    – bean bags & dolls for my daughter

  • Jaids

    If I won I’d make some clothes for my husband and I. We don’t have a lot of money right now but could really use some summer clothes. I haven’t been able to sew for a long while because of lack of money and time. If I got the gift certificate I’d have the money and an excuse to make the time ; ).
    I’d also make some things to give to charity because I try to always do that when I have the money.

  • christy

    I would love to win this fabric prize. If I won, there would be fabric and patterns for clothes for me and for my girls and perhaps if there is a little left over some home decor items.

  • Cher

    I recently bought the pattern for Amy Butler’s Chelsea bag which is a reversible tote and I have become obsessed. I have started making colorful reversible bags for everyone I know. I don’t have any bold, bright, or patterned fabrics in my stash so I have had to go out and buy fabric for every bag. In some cases, I have even raided the stash of the person for whom I am making the bag!

  • Jennifer

    I’d make a TON of stuff and have a blast doing it!!
    jaybird[at]acsol.net

  • Kelly E

    If I won this ridiculously awesome prize, I would get all kinds of bright colored fabrics & patterns and make smart bags for all of my friends & relatives. Something handmade from my heart that I know each of them would love & use, instead of using plastic bags.

  • Bladerunner

    I’m always on the lookout for yarn and fabric for a fundraiser I’m doing for Camp Starlight. It’s a 2-week summer camp in Oregon for kids who have or whose families have been impacted by AIDS & HIV. And, honestly, I’d probably make myself a skirt or two as well for work.

  • Jeanette Fields

    I would love to win. I would use some to make some clothes with and also baby recieving blankets, as I am needing to give a few as gifts.

  • Christine

    $250 of fabric… I’m a fabric thriftster so I would get a lot of mileage from $250. Imagine $250 of fat quarters? I could make 10 aprons, 2 sets of placemats, 4 sets of dinner napkins, 2 tea towels and a patchwork table runner. Then I’d probably make a pillowcase or two and would host a lovely giveaway at my blog to prove that I’ve really put the $250 to good use.
    Dare me. I’ll follow through.

  • greeblygreebly

    First I would make quilts for my kiddos, we just moved across country to a place with much colder winters and can use all the blankets we can get. Then I would make some clothes for us.

  • nanaandpapa1

    since my dd has declared the summer “The Year of the Sundress” there would be lots of sundresses made, one for me, one for her, and then there are the grands, lots for them, maybe with bloomers for modesty. yep! sundresses, whoo hoo!

  • Jenzette

    I would love to share with my friends who have just asked for sewing lessons. We have talked about a quilt project and fun skirts for the spring. I love the reversible wrap skirt that you featured recently and am very excited to try it out.
    Thank you so much for this wonderful giveaway!!!

  • Deb

    Wow, $250 is amazing. I could get loads of fabric to make some gorgeous handbags and other fun accessories for my upcoming craft shows.
    And of course I would make a skirt or two for myself and my nieces.

  • lorrie crawford

    -dresses
    -purses
    -cool stuffies
    -picnic table cloth

  • Linda

    I’d love to make clothes for my kids and home decor stuff or quilts.

  • Vanessa Lauria

    With that much fabric, I’d be set for years! I would buy
    lots of textured and small print fabrics for the pet portraits I hand applique. I would add so many possibilities for costumes and pup and kitty fur. Thanks!

  • Primdoll

    I love creating fabric journals, art dolls, jewelry, dresses for my granddaughters you name it I love doing it!! I would LOVE to win!! Thanks for such a fun contest!!
    hugs Linda

  • Kate

    Where to start….well, I would love some PVC coated fabric or oilcloth to make some reusuable sandwich holders and lunch bags. Also some cute boys knits to make shorts for my booty-less little boy- shorts I buy just don’t stay up. I could stretch $250 a long way and have a lot of fun!
    Kate

  • Rosa

    Wow! I would make my first ever quilted baby blanket

  • keasterling

    This would be so wonderful! I have recentl joined the relm of the SAHM world and am trying increase my “crafting” skills. I have two daughters and would like to start sewing for them, just like my mom and grandma did for me!

  • Jessi

    In order to be closer to my husband’s work (he commutes 40 miles right now) we’re moving to a house in a very small town that needs some serious help! This would help out so much for fabric for curtains, wall hangings, quilts and other great projects to spruce things up!

  • BitterEpiphany

    Wow! With a gift certificate as large as this one, there’s enough room to make something for yourself and something to share for sure – especially with the reasonable pricing at fabric.com. No lies, I would probably start out with some great little spring/summer skirts to supplement my work wardrobe and make my life, you know, better :P And then, once I ran out of hangers (which won’t be long now :P) I think i would start working on things for Sew Much Comfort…

  • Brooke

    I would splurge on something fancy to make a dress for my delayed honeymoon. :-)

  • domesticambitions

    Oh the things I would make!
    Pillows, curtains, a new quilt, placemats, wall decor, gifts for friends. Oh, I could go on and on!!! I would share pics of all my projects on my blog giving Craftzine and fabric.com all the glory!!!
    Please pick me!!

  • magwilky

    This giveaway is fantastic! If I win I would make summer wardrobes for my two daughters and maybe a little something for myself.

    What a fantastic giveaway! If I am the lucky winner, I will make some quilts and other usable gifts for friends who are getting married and having babies this summer. And, most likely some cute summer dresses for myself!

  • Ashley Ann

    I’d make a baby quilt for my niece and some cute new hand bags!

  • Gretchen

    I would make some hotpants for my upcoming performance as Tina Turner in my Ike and Tina Turner cover band. We’re called The Private Dancers, of course.
    And some summer dresses. It’s ’bout to get HOT in Texas!

  • Amanda C

    I order all of my fabric from them! They are great, have good prices, a good choice of fabrics and shipping is always free over $35. I would love spending $250 on more fabric! I’d make lots of handbags or some dresses for my daughter.

  • Josh

    I would make grandpa pants!

  • Krista

    I would get a bunch of fabric to make curtains and cover a chair. Boring, I know!

  • aldin124

    Oh my! The ideas and options are endless! I would make pillows, bags, a bed cover, baby blankets, kitchen towels, a dog pillow, a cat pillow, a hamster cage cover, a computer monitor cover….
    Thanks!

  • Erika

    I would definitely use it to buy more fabric to complete the quilt I am making for my boyfriend. In complete truth, I never expected to find someone like him.

  • Deana Hager

    New curtains would be great!!

  • Jenny

    The possiblities are endless. Definitly clothes (summer shirts and skirts), clothes for my Blythe doll, purses, christmas gifts in the future, quilts. I could go on and on, but I would definitly make great use of any free fabric I could get my hands on. Oh this would be so awesome! Thank you for the chance to win!!

  • Sarah

    I would make my first real quilt with real material!!!

    Cheers!

  • ashley

    i would make that 1950’s pattern wrap dress that everyone is so crazy about…

  • Ben Jarrell

    I would finally get good at sewing without fearing that I’d be wasting fabric. And I’d start to build up a stash equal to my mom’s.

  • tangente

    I need to make new drapery for my living room. This would be so great.
    Thanks Craftzine :)

  • Heather

    I hope you pick me :) although I’m sure who ever you pick will be supremely happy.

  • Emory

    I don’t even know where to begin with what I would make. I would get fabric to make my first quilt, because I am dying to make one of Anna Maria Horner’s patterns. I would get fabric to make at least some of the dozens of patterns I have. I would make my first pair of pants. I would make bags and makeup pouches for gifts. I would get fabric to make all the home dec stuff I’d need when I get a new apartment soon. Oh, the things I could make with $250 worth of fabric!!

  • Sharon

    What couldn’t I make with the fabric I’d buy!!! Summer skirts, dresses, tops, house projects, pillows…..
    Sharon

  • laura k

    I love fabric.com and just ordered some stuff from them last week! I have so many things I want to make: curtains for my new apartment, bags, skirts, pillows, and lots of lovely little things for my new baby niece.

  • Moni

    bags, bags, bags, bags, little clothes, bags, did i mention BAGS??!

  • cadauna

    As a poor college student who just signed a lease to an apartment, $250 worth of fabric may as well be gold.

  • HeatherA

    Curtains to hid the wiring behind the TV/Game Systems/DVR conundrum my husband has in our living room. Tote bags. Maybe some toys for my pug. Wall art.

  • piopio

    I think I would try and be practical and make some shirts for my new job. Maybe try my hand at pants? And then there are always gifts to make…
    Jennifer

  • andrea.d

    Roman blinds for my daughter’s room, an upholstered headboard, and a summer table cloth are on my to-do list.

  • Brooke

    Wow the skies the limit… I mean really what couldn’t you do with that much at Fabric.com…. hmmm make some outfits for the kids, a new cover for the dog bed, ooo finish the work on my friends baby quilt… perhaps get a pattern or two

  • Debby

    This prize would give me back the inspiration and motivation I used to have to make gifts and clothing for friends, family, charities, and myself!

    As you can see, if I win the $250 of fabric, I will have plenty to do…I can’t wait to get started! :)
    April @ faraboverubies

  • Knittingrid

    Great contest! I’d use the fabric to make skirts and dresses for my daughter and me, and cushions for the living-room. The leftovers would be well-used, too, for softies and bags.

  • Linda from Vegas

    Purses, I would make lots of purses with this beautiful fabric!

  • Jenny Kim

    Oh the possibilities are endless! but at this moment, probably hobo / bucket bags and overalls!

  • karmologyclinic.wordpress.com

    I can only dream of the dresses and skirts I would make with all this fabric. and making small patchwork gifts for others with whatever remains.

  • Sarah Day

    My dad just had a heart attack on Sunday. We live two hours away and it’s hard to know that I can’t be there every second. If I won $250 worth of fabric, I would make him a quilt, so I could always be there, even when I couldn’t.

  • mariessa

    Wooowww that would buy a lot of fabric! thats such a generous giveaway, my sewing machine is drooling over the possibilities.
    What I would make… I would make everything! I love to make my own bags and clothes that match, little pouches to hold my art supplies to and from class.. I love to make accessories, flower hair buds, fabric covered necklaces and rings… I have so much fun designing plush toys and combining funky and unique patterns to give them life.
    Also I really want to make my mother a beautiful dress for her birthday… she hates her body even though she’s so beautiful to me, I want to make her something that’s going to fit just right and make her feel young and wonderful.

  • kina

    What a great giveaway! And a great amount of fabric with 250$: I let my fantasy fly and imagine what I could with it…

  • nashzoo

    With all that fabric I would be able to make an entire summer wardrobe!

  • Carrie Wilson

    My daughter has started raiding my stash to make dolls! She completed a wonderful first run and needs some quality wool felt for bodies and cool cotton prints for clothes. And I wouldn’t mind a few things for myself…

  • Christina Dixon

    I would use it toward making my grandmother a quilt.

  • SarahA

    I would make a quilt, or two, or three. I would also make dresses for myself and I might even make a few toys. It would help me get my confidence up in the sewing department, that’s for sure.

  • carla english

    I will make a present for my Mum for Mothers Day.

  • Katie

    ooh! ooh! summer dresses! sumer dresses!

  • Xela Monster

    well… im about to move in with a friend and his apartment is barely decorated. Ill make some curtains and whatever else needs to be made.. im sure there will be leftovers for craft parties!
    Thanks.
    Good luck all.
    =A

  • Katie

    ooh! ooh! summer dresses! summer dresses!

  • 7stitches

    I would use the fabric to make my wedding dress!
    Right now, I’m working with scrap fabric to practice some designs and patterns, getting my sewing chops ready for the real thing that has to be done by September. I haven’t yet bought the fabric for the wedding dress, so I would be thrilled to win this giveaway!

  • Cyndi L

    And toys!

  • Libby

    Oooh, I love fabric.com! I would buy fabric to finish a lot of quilt projects that I’m working on – borders and backings – plus some fun stuff for future quilt projects.

  • Samantha Ender

    Not to be repetitive, but QUILTS for sure. And maybe I’ll get up the guts to attempt pillows!!

  • Lara

    Summer tops! I’m in danger of being naked this summer. I also need to make some curtains for my youngest daughter’s room. And maybe I’ll have enough to make a quilt, too!

  • ggb

    Oh, my goodness!!!! What WOULDN’T I make?!?!?! :) I would finish the dolls I’m making for my daughters, make them dresses, make a sundress for me, some pants for my husband, make some blankets, get started on the nightgowns for my daughters…..the list is endless. PLEASE PICK ME!!!!!!!! :)

  • this!

    hi, thx for the offer!
    I would love to use the fabric to make gift bags for my family and friends, to continue my efforts to reduce the amount of trash produced. I would also make re-useable shopping bags. I think that fabric re-useable gift bags/ shopping bags are a very important step in helping the environment. I hope you agree!
    =D
    <3!

  • Jodie Cord

    If you pick me I will make my two year old daughter some adorable clothes for this summer and fall.
    Thanks for the opportunity!
    -Jodie Cord

  • Stine

    What a dream come true…I would love to win this. I would make a couple quilts and maybe some cute baby clothes for friends.

  • shannonander

    If I win I’d finally make my first quilt. Also, if I win my husband would make me new shelves for all my fabrics!

  • Tanya Fuller

    I can totally jump start my wardrobe! It would compliment the new Singer sewing machine my mother just gave me! :)

  • Tracy C.

    Have tried to comment two times before, keep getting an error message. Hope this time works.
    I would make a quilt. haven’t been able to justify the expense, but if I won I wouldn’t have to. Yeah!

  • Melissa

    $250 of fabric…be still, my heart!

  • Shelley C

    We only have a source for quilting fabric nearby. Clothing and other fabrics are 250 miles away, so this would give me a great help for fabrics to make stuff for the grandkids. I have all kinds of patterns and ideas from the net, but no fabrics! I may add to my quilt stash also :)

  • Debra

    So many projects. . .so little time. I’d make curtains and dresses for my girls. Thanks!

  • Cranky Little Apricot

    I’m just starting to get into making clothing, so I think it would go toward that. My sister is pregnant and expecting in October, and I know I could make some awesome baby outfits!

  • Emily S

    I would use the GC to make a quilt. I have only made a baby quilt and have been wanting to make a full size quilt for sometime. $250 would get me all my fabrics and then some! What a great give-away.

  • swtater123

    My oldest daughter will be starting school in the fall and she really needs some nice clothes to wear. She has been wearing mostly hand-me-downs and thrift store finds since she was born, and is rapidly outgrowing them.
    I would really love to be able to make her some nice outfits to wear to school. I have been drafting patterns for her already, but have been trying to decide how to afford the fabric. I am on a very tight budget, so even a “new” wardrobe from the thrift store would be a burden on our family.
    I would also make some clothes for my youngest daughter, who is wearing her sisters hand-me-down hand-me-downs. She’s two, and I would love for her to have at least a couple of outfits that are new to her. If I could win this gift certificate it would help us out tremendously.
    Thanks,
    Jenny

  • curegirl0421

    Man nothing like a giveaway to get the comments rolling! :)
    If you pick me, I will use the fabric to make all the handmade gifts I can muster, probably making my sewing machine cry in the process, as well as finally conquering my fear of big quilts… how can you be afraid of quilting when you have a pile of beautiful fabric to work with!?
    Congrats in advance to whoever wins this windfall, but an even *bigger* congrats to all the lucky recipients of all the fun stuff I’ll make if *I* win!! :)

  • gail

    What a great giveaway! I would love to win. I would pick glorious fabrics out and when they came in the mail I would open them and lay them all out. Then I would “pet” them and stare at them. Next I would prewash and stare and touch them some more. Finally I would begin project making. Clothes, toys, and quilts. I love to create!!! What a great giveaway!

  • lucysardina

    If I won the fabric I would make fantastic fabric napkins with a pocket for travel bamboo spork for all my friends. And a quilt.

  • Teresa Pfister

    Wow! I could make a lot with $250 worth of fabric. Let’s see – a quilt, a bag, a skirt, some flannel baby blankets, new pillows. At least all of that and more (who knows how long it would take me, though!).

  • Cassie

    I would make both my girls new bedding & curtains! New spring skirts for me & them as well. Ohhh the possibilities of that much money in a fabric store…sighhhh..good to dream, isn’t it?

  • Heather

    I’m dying to make a new dress for my brother’s wedding! I’d love to win!

  • viquena

    So I’ve got this (my) wedding coming up in October and I need to make a messload of decorations and I was planning on using fabric for it! Fabric covers for the mason (flower) jars, fabric flowers with throwies (LED lights) for the walls, and I had previously ruled out tablecloth runners in a sporty fabric because of the expense, but I could even make those too! (and it would be so awesome) This goes beyond draping, ladies and gentlemen, I’ve got big dreams!
    Not to mention the bridesmaid gifts and the flower girl gift and the flower basket and all these ways I wanted to incorporate beautiful fabrics. Whee!
    getting ready for a clothy wedding. (and if you have an idea of something I could sew for an 11 year old boy, I would love to hear it. I’m drawing blanks here.)

  • Carrie in KC

    What would I make? Probably clothes for my kids, gifts for Christmas, maybe some cloth napkins. Perhaps I could even try my hand at a quilt?

  • Sadie

    I would try my hand at an art quilt for the FIRST TIME EVER. I am a studio art major and could make some pretty rad and unique things for critiques.

  • Sarah

    The list doesn’t end but mostly, I would love to start working on that summer quilt I have planned for my bed, as well as making some lovely summer clothes…
    I would also make books, pretty, ornate, fabric covered books…

  • kittlebit

    I have a project that’s been waiting for just the right fabric. My father passed away in November and I have all his old t-shirts. Silly ones (his favorite was a hot pink one with “Wierd” on it, with a HUGE “O” underneath it – get it? Wierdo!), many that were gifts from my sister and me, shirts from his granddaughter’s colleges, shirts representing his hobbies (fishing, remote control airplane, gardening), even some from places he and mom lived during their 54 years together (West Virginia, St. Louis, Kwajalein, Memphis). I have all the shirts cut and divided into three piles to make a quilt for my mom, my sister and me. I think the border and backing fabric I’d use is “Ron’s World – Words of Wisdom Sky”. I’d buy 20 yards ($120). He would have been 80 on May 24 – and I’d love to finish at least mom’s by then. This particular fabric represents him so well – he was such an intelligent, loving, supportive, funny, reliable father and grandfather. I miss him so much.

  • Nancey

    I would make dresses and bags to sell so that I can quit my job!

  • Karen

    I would make skirts for me and shirts for my husband. Then finally get started on that quilt I have always wanted to try

  • ekcphoto

    Such a great giveaway! I would probably make some summer dresses for my 2 girls and then I’d make myself a new camera shoot bag

  • poorfrancisco

    I would use the fabric to reupholster the seats in the RV we bought to bring to burning man.
    This RV is going to be around for a while so we are going all out decorating it!!

  • NSBA

    I’d most likely pass the fabric on to a purse-obsessed friend who would make wonderful bags or even use it with her kindergarteners for some kid-friendly craft project.

  • ahngeluh

    If I won, I would definitely find the perfect fabric I have needed for the quilt I’ve been thinking about for months! I’d also use the rest to help with my new years resolution of making gifts rather than buying them. I’m crossing my fingers!

  • Emma

    wow! $250!!!
    If I win, I’d definitely keep on with my laptop cases that I’ve been working on, and hopefully launch a new etsy shop!
    http://www.dork-a-thon.com/?p=204

  • Em

    I’d make some cute sundresses and hobo bags. With the left over scraps, I’d make O.R. caps for my dad who is a surgeon.

  • Barbara Mars

    With 4 grandchildren, I’d have no problem deciding what to do with all that fabulous fabric! They’d all love to have another one of Grannas quilts, as they think they have outgrown their ‘toddler’ quilts I made them when they were small. But secretly, they still sleep with them! LOL
    Barbara in TN

  • ChrisC.

    ooh, what a fantastic giveaway. I’m torn — I’m dying to make my first quilt, so that might be what I’d use this fabric for. But it’d also be great to buy a whole lotta fabric and make an entirely new summer wardrobe! Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Nicole M

    Oh man, this would be the best win ever!! I would make pillows and flower pins and stuff for all the babies popping out around me. I could only be so lucky to win this one!!!
    Nicole M.

  • Clair Dunne

    I would use the fabric to finally break out all those clothing patterns that I’ve been hording.

  • tina

    this is awesome!! i could make a whole summer worth of bags and skirts!!!

  • kathc

    I would buy 10 yards of that fabulous Montego Hemp and make curtains for my living room!

  • beccawebber

    If I won this contest I would be able to shower my friends and family with gifts. Most important gift being a baby blanket for my best friend who lives 300 miles away. She is going to be a single Mom and she needs all the love and support she can get.

  • Joanna

    I’m totally moving into a new place where i can set up my own sewing studio, and this would be just the thing to start me off on the right foot. Here’s hoping!

  • Melissa H

    I would recover my dining room chairs. And buy fabric to back a quilt I finished ages ago. And..I’m sure I could come up with even more! Fingers crossed

  • Kristy

    Make a bunch of quilts and work on my fabric stash.

  • Cutecake

    I would make the largest tea cosy in the world. Then I would invite all my friends to the largest tea party in the world!

  • cin

    I would make a ton of raggedy ann and andys !!! Love to make someone smile with a new doll !!! Up here in northern MN I need a hobby to make it through the winter !!!

  • Emily Val

    My husband and I have 9 weddings to attend this year, and I want to make a few wedding quilts for some of our soon-to-be-newlywed friends!

  • corrie

    I would make a summery maxi dress and go crazy coming up with other dresses to make!

  • Anna Boone

    I would make baby clothes, because I am going to have a baby! :)

  • Fay Laverty

    This is so shiny happy! I have been meaning to make my daughter a quilt for her new “big girl bed” since last Summer when we gave it to her, but I’ve never actually put together all of the fabric. Well, this would definitely stop that excuse. ; ) Then I’d just have to stop getting so distracted. Hey, look, it’s a bird!

  • knittingbunnymum

    I would make beautiful dresses for my daughters. I’m just getting back into sewing so this would be fabulous. $250 WOW!!

  • Maria McGill

    I just spent about $100 on fabric.com and could spend even more with this! They have such great stuff at great prices!

  • kentucky

    I dream of a bright blue sundress for this summer.

  • Karen Newton

    I’d make curtains for my apartment since I don’t have any.

  • misty

    I would re-cover my favorite chair…sadly, it has gone beyond looking shabby-chic. :/ :D

  • Kristina Deutsch

    As I am about to venture off on this project anyhow, I’d love the gift certificate to make a cushion-covered bench with extra seating stored underneath (fabric and batting covered boxes)!

  • Laura_J

    http://wkdesigner.wordpress.com/2008/09/03/ruched-empire-dress/
    I’ve got a wedding later this year and I think this would be beautiful in crushed velvet. Also, I’d like to make one or two in a pastel Chiffon for summer dresses.
    Plus I saw a fake fur in there that my youngest daughter would love for a back to school outfit next fall.

  • Sherry

    I would make every pattern out of the Weekend sewing book. (the book is in the mail now… I can’t wait for it to get here!)

  • kat

    we live in a rental after owning our own home, so i need COLOR in our rental…. pillows, curtains, chair covers, etc.

  • knittingalmb

    What an incredible giveaway. I would make a new quilt for my mom. And I’m trying to design a nifty way to include a LilyPad Arduino in my next quilt… how cool would that be at night!!!

  • Michelle

    Very fun!
    What would I do with more fabric?! It would be a little late for summer clothes but great for fall wardrobes for my girls and To get started on Christmas gifts!

  • Anna

    I would start my stash of quilting cottons…. and I would buy fabric to make pants, and a lined wool coat… and I would love to try upholstery as well.
    Fabulous giveaway!

  • Amy Sp

    I have no idea what I would make with all that fabric/money! I would just stock the stash and then take forever deciding where to start :)

  • jen

    $250 would buy enough fabric to fill my closet with those fantastic wrap skirts from a past issue of Craft!

  • esigs

    I might actually make/finish some of the many projects I have been promising to my family for years: seat covers, pillows, bags, quilts, lining that bag of my mother’s I’ve had for 2 years…

  • Jessica Egmont

    I would love to be able to gather that much fabric. All the lovly things I could make and sell or give and beyond! Pick me pick me,,,,I never win this stuff!

  • Juli

    I’d have a lot of material to continue learning my sewing… my main goal in sewing is to make custom clothes that actually fit both my body and my style! Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong place and time, LOL

  • Jessica Egmont

    Love this I could think of many things on my wishlist to make and sell and give! PIcke mee ooooh oooh pick me! PLeez

  • marci_jo

    I would sew some dresses for myself & my girls.

  • bloomingheather.wordpress.com

    A puppet theater for my little girls, skirts and more skirts, quilts, curtains and then there would be all the scrap fabric! I’d probably also make a few doll clothes. So hard to say. I feel like I’m never entirely certain what I’m going to make until I’m sitting in front of my sewing machine, having a craft attack!

  • Noel

    If I won, I would use the fabric to help me reach my goal of starting a new crafting style/project.

  • hopeful heart

    i’ve got two dresses in the queue to be upcycled.
    there’s vintage dress pattern that has been calling my name.
    i need lining for the motorcycle-style jacket that is on my list.
    a cover for the dress form i made.
    a summer bag.
    and as many other projects as i can squeeze out of $250!
    thank you!

  • ninnyleigh

    If I won a gift certificate to fabric.com, I would make a dress to wear to my aunt’s wedding. You never know who you will meet at a wedding. ;-)

  • Jenn

    fabricfabricfabricfabricfabricfabricfabricfabric!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sarah

    Oh my, I would go crazy with summer dresses, skirts and purses! All the things I can’t justify buying in a store, but somehow if I make them myself (spending the same amount of money) it’s just fine :-)

  • reh

    I would make a beautiful quilt for two friends who are getting married at the end of the year. And then I’d probably make a dress to go to the wedding in!

  • DDB

    If i won ….. I’d finally take the time and make a quilt just for me – the hard part wouldn’t be the making of it, it would be deciding on the fabric. Oh the dreams!!!!

  • Veronica H

    Oh wow, I would make a quilt, probably some curtains, and dresses from a project book I just got.

  • Barbara

    Great prize! I’ve got a lot of wedding related sewing to get cracking on. Not least is 75 mini quilt postcards to send as invitations. $250 of fabric would get me well started getting it all done.

  • cygnetsmall.wordpress.com

    250? I could make SO much…but for starters a quilt, some bibs, a dress for my girl, some pants for my boy, etc.

  • qc

    Nice contest! The prize stash would be used on the usual suspects: aprons, pouches, shopping totes. And the scraps for pincushions and other needlework paraphernalia.

  • lizziwhizz

    I have only ever made one purchase from fabric.com–it was silk dupioni for my wedding dress 3 1/2 years ago, and it was the most perfect color and so beautiful!
    If I won, I’d try to beef up my stash of quality knit fabrics. I have no local source and I would really like to make more knit tops and dresses. I’ve seen some lovely knits on fabric.com. I also might be tempted to buy some of the pretty wool I’ve seen to make a coat (although the season is ending…)

  • paris2005

    I have to make a bridesmaid dress! I would buy fabric to make a chartreuse 1950s tea-length dress.
    Thanks!!

  • paris2005
  • Library.Lil

    Oooooohhhhh, $250 dollars can buy a lot of dreaming! Fabric for a quilt, I’m sure, as quilting is my biggest love, but I’m sure I will figure out other smaller projects as well, as I’m branching out a lot more with my sewing & craft projects.

  • Elizabeth

    I would make twinkling light-up summer dresses for my daughter and me with LilyPad Arduino and LEDs and this beautiful fabric…

  • craftyconfusion

    What a great giveaway! As a student on a limited budget I’m always having to limit how many fun sewing projects I can tackle. This would go a long way towards fulfilling some of my sewing daydreams. I think I would make a dress or two for the zillion weddings that seem to be scheduled in the next 6 months…and maybe a matching purse or two.
    Cheers~

  • Tamara Schroeder

    $250 in fabric!!! That’s a most generous and fabulous giveaway!

  • Harle

    I’m in my last year of my undergraduate studies in Philadelphia. In the current economy, a friend of mine and I are scheming ways to still do what we love most, create, while turning a profit. We plan on opening an Etsy store and selling our wares at community art events like First Friday. The fabric will surely be an invaluable asset since our crafts include poi, clothing, and kanzashi. She is a fashion design major while I study digital media, so this would be an awesome opportunity to explore my passions with the Arduino by integrating the Lilypad into our products.
    I won’t let you down, CRAFT! I promise we’ll have lots of fun things to share.

  • shala_beads

    Patchwork twirly skirts, purses, and my daughter would use the scraps for making dolls, she’s been on a doll making kick lately.

  • Jennyy

    I’d make everything! :-) Dresses for my girls, shirts for me, quilts for everybody. What fun!

  • Jacqui

    Oh goodness, what wouldn’t I make?! Clothes, toys, dolls, a quilt or two… Maybe a quilt or two first, I’ve just discovered how frustrating it is not to have the perfect fabrics for a quilt and with this prize I’d have the perfect fabrics right on hand.

  • kayce

    I would make some accessories for my camera.

  • MicheleB2

    Quilts that I’ve designed in my head, tote bags, pillows..all kinds of goodies.

  • MMW

    With summer right around the corner I want to make my daughter a slew of summer style! I have a couple of summer dress patterns just waiting for some fabric.
    Thanks!

  • charlieoliver

    Where to start. I would start off making a few toys, finger puppets and dolls. (I have about 5 different baby showers to attend this summer)and then I’d start work on my christmas list presents. I’d also make a few piece of clothing for myself as well as a doggie bed for my new puppy.
    This is such a fun give away.

  • Rachel

    Oh, how much fabulous fabrics $250 would buy!! I’d make a quilt or two, summer dresses for my little girl and lots of skirts for me, mom, sister…
    Thanks craftzine for this opportunity!

  • nina s

    I would probably make a quilt for my new niece and a quilt for myself.

  • anniebananiestudios

    I could make some great dolls, quilts and more!

  • francineburge

    because I said so?
    purses, the world needs more purses.

  • Emily Grant

    I would love some fabric to make a sewing machine cozy for Sophia, my Singer. And I always need more purses and placemats and table runners and, well you get the picture :)

  • Dorothy

    what an awesome prize. I’ve used fabric.com before, and had a great experience. if I won, I’d make more of my own clothes for sure!

  • Rizalynn

    Drapes! And they would be so beautiful I’d want to make dresses out of the drapes!

  • Anne

    I’d make a knitting needle holder, a bag, then probably everything in the Lotta Jansdotter Simple Sewing bok!

  • Rauni

    I would love to win this since I live in such a small town with only Walmart for fabric shopping. I would continue making my current passion – purses, bags, wallets, cases, etc.
    Rauni

  • Jessica

    Oh, I’d make some clothes with fabrics I’ve been wanting to try out, maybe a quilt or two, and little goodies from all the leftovers!

  • Shannon

    Ooh, I’d make some clothes for my daughter and have her help me make some crafts and gifts. Oh, and she wants to make a quilt! This would be perfect!

    Oh, gosh – the kids have been outgrowing so many clothes, so the first thing would be to make clothes for them. Then I’d decorate their room: bedspread duvets, curtains (and finally get rid of the broken blinds), sheets, pillows – and if there’s any left over, more curtains for elsewhere in the house, and maybe even a cute outfit for myself. And a new cage cover for Casey, the cockatiel, so he’ll sleep better at night! Maybe even a quilt to replace the one dh and I have (it’s falling apart).
    Thanks for the drawing – love it!

  • atbirk

    What a great contest! Would love to win this and there are so many projects that could be done: quilts, purses, totes, pillowcases, table runners, placemats and on and on…

  • Faith

    I would make a new quilt & shams for my bed.

  • joak

    I just bought a new sewing machine and cannot wait to start sewing. I would start by making tons of baby clothes and gifts for all the new babies in my life.

  • zuliblu

    I am so excited about this contest! I really want to make my parents a King size quilt for their 50th Wedding Anniversary this year. My Mom always makes quilts for everyone but herself, and this prize would go a long way to making them a fabulous quilt.

  • Marissa

    I would make a quilt for each of my kids, and one for my husband and me.

  • TheArtfulDogger

    The question should be, what wouldn’t I make?! I love to sew and craft. Now that I am under-employed (ie: part-time work), I would love some free fabric to make things to sell on my soon-to-be launched etsy store.

  • Amberlynn

    After making a dress that actually fits me, I would make toys for my kids and gifties for PIF’s.

  • beccama

    I could get backing for all the quilts I’m working on (2 twins, and a king) and start up a bunch of new projects like clothes for my girls and some more quilts! Thanks for the chance!

  • Kate

    Ooh! I’d make all kinds of things for my shop – insulated coffee cup sleeves, pin cushions with thread catchers, diaper bags – and certainly take some time to make some projects for myself and my boys! I’ve been dying to make the boys some slipper booties…

  • Kate

    Oh my! Do you think I could work my way through Weekend Sewing with all that fabric?!

    This would be so great…I would make childrens dresses and scarves, bags, curtains, quilts…the possibilities are endless!

  • Desiree

    I would use some fabric to finish a beautiful quilt started by my great-grandmother about 45 years ago so I could give the quilt to my mom for Mother’s Day! I’d very happily use it to make handmade gifts (quilts, purses, skirts, cute curtains) and to jazz up my living room with happy-patterned-pillows. I’m thinking some lovely patterned fabric might also inspire my friends to start sewing… :)

  • Molly

    With all that fabric? I’d finally get to make my first quilt (and a beautiful one at that)… and then I would make my second quilt!

  • Erin Gibson

    I’d start with pillow covers for all of the throw pillows in my living room. They came with the couch and I’ve never cared for the pattern. Then I’d start in on next year’s Christmas presents… reusable tote bags for all of my friends and family.

  • Margaret

    I’d use the fabric to finish up the three unfinished objects I have in my sewing room, and the rest would go toward our quilting guild’s project of making lap quilts for people injured during their military service.

  • kimberly

    i would totally make all that stuff i haven’t made because i don’t have any really cool fabric! yay!

  • Margaret

    Now that Spring is finally on its way, I’ve been wanting the perfect sun dress. Sure, I don’t NEED to start yet another project, but it’s free fabric! What better excuse is there?!

  • Lyn

    I have just fallen in love with sewing again afer a 10 year break. My lastest projects have been pillows and children’s aprons. With this fabric, the projects would be endless. I have wanted to start making some purses/totes and many more items. This fabric would be PERFECT!

  • Heidi

    WOW, I could finally make thing I have been dreaming about.

  • Becky H

    What wouldn’t I make? I’d probably start with some colorful but warmer clothing items– this abnormally cold spring has found me lacking in things to wear because I’m so sick of my winter clothes! And depending on the capacity I’m involved, there’s a good chance I’ll need a dress to wear to my brother’s wedding (he’s getting engaged this weekend!)

  • yvonne

    i love fabric.com and have lots of projects planned, including a quilt for my son to use on the new bed he’s getting for his birthday and some dresses for my daughter’s birthday.

  • erica H

    Wow this is amazing. I’d make quilts for flood victims in North Dakota (where I live).

  • juaniejoy

    I want to make my bridesmaid dress to wear to my best friend’s wedding that is coming up faster than anyone realizes. I also want to win this so we can make a dress to wear to her rehearsal dinner. Please let me win!

    I just love the feeling you get when you walk into a well stocked fabric store. Tingling, and excitement over the marvelous things you can create!

  • Lorene

    …a new quilt for my master bedroom. It’s draped in solid color quilts right now and could use some additional splashes of color.

  • JJ

    Oh. My. Gosh. I am having trouble breathing. This is probably the best giveaway I have ever seen. Ok, let’s see, I would definitely make some clothes for my little guy, something for our dog (she needs to look cute too!), I’m thinking some pillows for our camper, the list is endless…please, oh please let me win!!!

  • Corrinne

    I would sew until my fingers bled…quilts, clothes, accessories, the possibilities are endless!

  • Dawn Kuczwara

    I would love to win and use the fabric to make a quilt for my mother. She survived a mastectomy and heart valve replacement surgery last year only to lose my father in October after 50+ years of marriage. She always make quilts for everyone else, it would be nice for her to have one just for her.
    And I’d use anything left to make my 3 year old daughter a quilt. Any scraps I could use to make some of the adorable scrap items – like the apples and fabric Easter eggs that Craft has posted on Twitter recently!

  • Palila

    I’d make some bibs for all my friends having the babies now, some teddy bears, a purse for my sister, some neat little pouches for those on Team Bride, and I’d figure out something for myself- I’m thinking a fun skirt. Or an apron with matching ovenmitts/tea towels.

  • asterandsage.wordpress.com

    I would sew sweet little outfits for my daughter, who’s 2 and loves “outfits”, and matching outfits for her doll, even though he’s a boy and his name is “Baby Boy”. I don’t think I’d leave the house for days, I’d just sew, and sew, and sew. In a a dreamlike trance of happiness…

  • ikisti

    Would be a great thing to win as i’m just re-starting my sewing.

  • Melissa

    I would love to win this fabric. I need to learn how to use my sewing machine and this would be a great opportunity. I could make a nice spring quilt to begin with and some pillows. I would like to learn how to make bags so I can have a variety for myself.

  • Laura Angermeier
  • cfbandit

    That fabric looks fantastic! I’d make toys for the upcoming sale I am doing for the American Cancer Society.
    Concetta

    I would make lots of stuff. Like a quilt and a load of reusable bags and morsbags and stuffies and and and… ahhhh… I could make so much stuff.
    Felicia

  • Sarah

    I would make my first quilt! Or possibly some pj bottoms, and some pretty dresses to wear swing dancing.

  • rachel

    I’d make a new quilt-the quilt I made in high school that we use on the sofa is slowly disingrating.

  • Maryjane

    Oh I’d love to win that gift certificate!!
    If I were to win, I would jumpstart my knitting needle holder business on Etsy (which is pretty non-existent right now). I’d also sew some clothes for my son’s bear, Barnaby.

  • Leticia

    I would make cute summer jumpers for me and my friends! we’d frolic around san francisco on bikes in our little jumpers and keds…

  • Abby Coe

    I am spiffing up the shelves I mounted on my living room wall to give my 5 cats (in a one bedroom apt.) some more vertical climbing space. Some cool fabric would be great for this project.

  • Emily

    If I won the gift certificate, I would make a whole bunch of things for different people. A purse for my sister, a apron for my roommate, a stuffed animal for the little ones, and other gifts for friends and family.

  • mountain girl

    Wow. I’d love to have some fabric so I could make some Spring related items!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    I feel lightheaded thinking of all the things I could do with that much fabric… Whee!

  • nikki

    i would made summer clothes for my 2 year old and a quilt for the baby i hope comes in the next year.

  • juleen

    It would be so amazing to win!
    I would make a baby quilt for my new nephew and for my friend who’s about to have a baby. Then I’d get some awesome printed oilcloth so I can finally make that collapsible dog bowl I saw posted on Craftzine. The only oilcloth I’ve been able to find in stores near me is ug-ug-ugly, but fabric.com has so many wonderful options!
    Fingers crossed,
    juleen.

  • LoriR

    well silly, a quilt, of course.

  • anita

    I would make little girl purses and tote bags, and I’ve been dreaming about making curtains for my laundry room, and my craft room, and…..

  • Jessica

    OOh, this is an awesome give away and I would love to win! I would certainly up my quilt productions! :)

  • knightimecreations

    …I would probably spend about an hour trying to find a spot to put it while my boyfriend griped at me about having yet more craft stuff. *grin* Then, I’d give up and start 6 sewing projects all at once. I’m thinking at least 3 pieces of garb for Ren Faire, some additional room decorations, and some pillows for my little cousin’s dolls.

  • karenology

    Dresses, cat tents, dolls, picnic blankets … possibilities are endless!

  • disir

    i love fabric!! :)

  • KaleidoscopeEyes8

    The females in my family and I are going to have a purse making craft day, so I would use the fabric to make the patchwork purse of my dreams!

  • Ros Perrotta

    Need new summer outfits! So that’s where the fabric would go :-)

  • everyday-asian.com

    I’d some fabulous summer dresses.

  • janinemaletsky

    I would donate some of the fabric to our school. Five years ago they eliminated the home economics course here in our middle school. The art teacher and I saved the sewing machines from the trash and he has incorporated soft sculpture into his curriculum so the kids can still learn how to sew. With so many fabric/craft stores closing, he always has trouble keeping enough fabric on hand for the kids sculptures.
    I would also make some quilts for the ‘Quilts for Kids’ Quilts for Kids transforms fabric into quilts that comfort children with cancer, AIDS, and other life-threatening illnesses as well as battered & abused children. If possible I would involve the kids at school in creating these quilts, too.

  • missameredith

    This is kind of a funny story. A few months ago my roommate moved out unexpectedly, leaving me with double the rent, and no living room furniture to sit on. After I finally found a new roommate, we still didn’t have a couch. I found one on craigslist for 90 bucks (something I really can’t afford since I’m in school, working less, and working on my senior thesis in ceramic sculpture). Despite the lack of funds, I got a hold of the owner, and she agreed to sell it to me for 75. However, she never showed up and never contacted me after we first spoke. One day my (new) roommate told me about her uber-Christian aunt who always criticized her for not being as christian as she was. Apparently this lately, despite all of the criticism towards others, would pray for material objects such as couches. Jokingly, I folded my hands and prayed to God that I wanted “a pink, orange, or red antique couch for free”. The next day I looked on craigslist and there it was! I waited by my cell until I knew the owner got out of work, and once I called her it was mine! Maybe I should pray more often…
    Anyway, I would totally appreciate the funds to reupholster the couch. Although it’s completely fabulous, it could certainly use a touch up!
    Here’s a pic: http://twitpic.com/30bqf
    With the rest of the money, I would make my mom a quilt. She made me one out of all of our old clothing when I went off to college. Now that she’s gone through a divorce recently, she doesn’t have much stuff. I’d like to do something nice for her.

  • missameredith

    Haha! Oh well!

  • Natalie T.

    Okay, I think the more accurate question is “what wouldn’t I make?”
    I’d probably focus on updating my wardrobe to look a little more “grown up” and professional. Quilts might happen. A new bedspread would be nice. A dress for the wedding I have to attend this summer. Luxurious PJs. Like I said, what wouldn’t I make?

  • Diane M

    Whst a beautiful pallette of color-Can you imagine the joy of receiving a quilt as an expression of love or comfort or promise!! I’d love the opportunity to colorfully extend blessing.
