1,802 thoughts on “Giveaway: Enter to Win a $250 Gift Certificate to Fabric.com!

  1. 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!!

  2. 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!

  3. 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?!

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

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

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

  7. 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!!

  8. 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!

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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!

  16. 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!

  17. 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!

  18. 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. :)

  19. 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…

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

  21. 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!

  22. 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.

  23. 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!

  24. 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*

  25. 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!

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

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

  29. 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.

  30. 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!

  31. 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 :)

  32. 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

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

  34. 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!

  35. 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

  36. 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!!!!!!

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

  38. 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.

  39. 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..

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

  41. 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?

  42. 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!

  43. 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…

  44. 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!

  45. 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!

  46. 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! :)

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

  48. 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???

  49. 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!

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

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

  52. 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

  53. 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!

  54. 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!

  55. 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!!

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

  57. 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!

  58. 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!

  59. 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!

  60. 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.

  61. 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!

  62. 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!

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

  64. 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!

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

  66. 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!

  67. 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.

  68. 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…

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

  70. 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.

  71. 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?

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

  73. 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? ;)

  74. 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!

  75. 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!!!

  76. 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!

  77. 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.

  78. 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.

  79. 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.

  80. 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!

  81. 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!

  82. 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.

  83. 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.

  84. 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!

  85. 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.

  86. 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.

  87. 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!

  88. 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.

  89. 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 :)

  90. 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.

  91. 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!

  92. 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!!

  93. 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

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

  95. 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!

  96. 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!

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

  98. 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!

  99. 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.

  100. 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.

  101. 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.

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

  103. 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.

  104. 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!

  105. 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!

  106. 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!

  107. 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 :]

  108. 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. :)

  109. 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 :)

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

  111. 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!

  112. 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!

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

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

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

  116. 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!

  117. 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!

  118. 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!

  119. 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.

  120. 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.

  121. 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!

  122. 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!

  123. 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!

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

  125. 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!

  126. 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.

  127. 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!!

  128. 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 :)

  129. 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. :)

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

  131. 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!

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

  133. 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!

  134. 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.

  135. 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.

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

  137. 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!

  138. 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!

  139. 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! :)

  140. 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.

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

  142. 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!

  143. 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!

  144. 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!

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

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

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

  148. 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.

  149. 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

  150. 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

  151. 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.

  152. 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.

  153. 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

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

  155. 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.

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

  157. 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.

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

  159. 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.

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

  161. 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!

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

  163. 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.

  164. 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!)

  165. 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.

  166. 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.

  167. 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.

  168. 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.

  169. 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.
    :)

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

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

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

  173. 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.

  174. 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!

  175. 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…

  176. 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!

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

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

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

  180. 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!

  181. 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.

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

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

  184. 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

  185. 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!

  186. 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.

  187. 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.

  188. 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!

  189. 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!!

  190. 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

  191. 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!

  192. 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!

  193. 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.

  194. 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.

  195. 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!

  196. 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!

  197. 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.

  198. 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!

  199. 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!

  200. 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.

  201. 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!!!!!!

  202. 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.

  203. 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.

  204. 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.

  205. 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.

  206. 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.

  207. 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!

  208. 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…

  209. 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!

  210. 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!

  211. 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!

  212. 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!

  213. … 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!

  214. 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!

  215. 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.

  216. 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!

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

  218. 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??

  219. 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..:)

  220. 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!

  221. 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!

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

  223. 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….

  224. 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?

  225. 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!

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

  227. 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.

  228. 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!

  229. 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 =)

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

  231. 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~!!

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

  233. 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!

  234. 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!

  235. 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!

  236. 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!

  237. 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!

  238. 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!

  239. 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.

  240. 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…

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

  242. 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.

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

  244. 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).

  245. 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!

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

  247. 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!

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

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

  250. 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.

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

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

  253. 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).

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

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

  256. 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!

  257. 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.

  258. 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.

  259. 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.

  260. 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.

  261. 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.

  262. 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!

  263. 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!!

  264. 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.

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

  266. 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.

  267. 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!!

  268. 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!

  269. 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.

  270. 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!

  271. 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!

  272. 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!)

  273. 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.

  274. 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

  275. 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!)

  276. 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.

  277. 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

  278. 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!

  279. 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.

  280. I would love to win this prize and I would make something very beautiful for me. I need to feel beautiful.

  281. Ooh, I have a whole list of things I’d make: skirts and dresses, curtains, baby quilts and stuffies!

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

  283. 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.

  284. 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!

  285. 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.

  286. 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.

  287. 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.

  288. 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.

  289. 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.

  290. 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!)

  291. 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.

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

  293. 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!

  294. 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!

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

  296. 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.

  297. 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!!!

  298. 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.

  299. 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.

  300. 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 :)

  301. 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!

  302. I would make a bunch of gifts to hand out over this year… backing to finish a couple of quilts, baby clothes for my friends and a couple of shirts for myself.

  303. Wow! What a great giveaway! I think I’d start with a new bag, and then a quilt for my bed.

  304. 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! :)

  305. 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!

  306. 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

  307. 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.

  308. 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!

  309. 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 :)

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

  311. 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 :)

  312. 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. :)

  313. 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!!

  314. 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!!!

  315. 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!

  316. 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!

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

  318. 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!

  319. 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!)

  320. 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!!!

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

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

  323. 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?!?

  324. 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.

  325. 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!

  326. 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!

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

  328. 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!

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

  330. 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!!

  331. 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.

  332. 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.

  333. 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!

  334. 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.

  335. 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

  336. 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!!

  337. 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!

  338. i would love to finally start my first attempt at my childrens scrapbooks, now over 13 years stuffed into a box,for the inspiration of my hearts desire. and love doing it, instaed of settling for something that doesnt speak out for who we are. it would be the kick i need.

  339. Overalls for my wee-one, skirts for me, wristlets and aprons for my sisters, and start a new quilt project. Oh, what fun I would have!!

  340. I love fabric.com. I would make a summer mini wardrobe for myself, cozy sweatpants and sweatshirts for my kids, and I would also make more quilts.

  341. i would make my little sister and i summer dresses, curtains for her room and add onto the family quilt. the scraps would be used to make stuffed animals

  342. With a baby on the way, I would love to buy enough fabric to make all the baby items on my list, like a shopping cart cover and mei tai and a few clothing items. I’d also love to make some purses/bags as I’ve been needing something a bit bigger lately.

  343. I’m hoping to learn to quilt and this would be fabulous.I could also improve my wardrobe for medieval reenactment!

  344. I would make myself a new dress for every month and special event I could think of or make up!

  345. I’m an artist, who paints on fabric. I would LOVE some new inspiration!! Our fabric store is closing, so fabric.com is my only source now!

  346. I would make a new quilt for my bed and summer clothes for my sweet gal and maybe even a little something for my sweet husband.

  347. Well, I think new curtains for the living room would be an excellent project choice if I won this gift card. Thanks for the chance!

  348. Just started sewing, and my three daughters have a list of dresses, shirts and skirts that they want! The fabric would make their wish list an easy sew!

  349. 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. Hundereds of homes we destroyed & nearly 200 people lost their lives. I can’t imagine my house without the may handmade items that make it feel like home. 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.

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

  351. 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.

  352. I’m a fashion design student so I always need fabric to work with. I would use the certificate to buy supplies for class & use the materials for projects. Probably make some cute dresses!

  353. I’d so love to win this. I think I’d be making loads of things; a handbag, a quilt top, clothing for my daughters…

  354. I could afford fun prints to play with quilting. pillows, skirts, a dress, maybe a swimsuit. who knows?

  355. 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.

  356. 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!!
    SusanSW

  357. New spring bag, new summer bag, new fall bag, new winter bag, new spring/summer/fall/winter clothes for the kiddos to start with.

    kt.cowden@gmail.com

  359. I would make canvases. And I would make pillows in the shape of alphabet. And I would make a wrap for my boyfriend’s flask. And baby clothes.

  360. I would make myself an adult non-see-through crinoline skirt!! I want to wear a tutu everyday!
    And then stuff for my wedding.
    I have my priorities.

  361. I would buy the most wonderful kid’s prints and brights and surprise my quilt guild with the fabric for our Project Linus quilt project.
    Thanks for the chance to win.
    Sue Cahill (sbonetsue at yahoo dot com)

  362. oh man, I don’t even know where to start!! I would sew a new market bag, something roomy to fit all the junk I like to carry. New dresses for my girls, new pillows for my couch, tons of fabric covered buttons and key fobs and little softies for gifts :D

  363. Oh wow, i would do alot with those, i would be able to start all the sketches i drawn normally for my college portfolio, but never did from time and fabric materials, i would also be able to make a few things for myself finally.

  364. Definitely purses, and clutches and wallets, and cozies for my ipod. Probably some plushies and cute tops to wear. And dozens of pincushions, even though I don’t need even one more.

  365. I would make a baby quilt for my first niece/nephew due in July, as well as bibs and burp cloths. I would also make a lovely tote to show off to all of my friends!

    Amanda

  367. 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!

  368. if i won this fabric i would make a technicolor floral canopy to cocoon my bed. beautiful vibrant florals would let light through and brighten my home, as well as keep the light out at night. such beautiful fabrics!
    thanks…casey

  369. some fancy fabric would be just what i need to blow the approching winter blues away! i would make some new blinds for my bedroom and start on some cushion cobers to go with a new-secondhand couch!

  370. 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.

  371. 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!!

  372. What wouldn’t I make?? I’ve got a few bags earmarked and a couple of skirts for summer, too. I’m What an exciting contest!

  373. and drapes! i need window coverings in the front of my house, for ALL the windows! that’s what i would use all that fabric for :)

  374. 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.

  375. i would use it in a few projects that i’m starting this semester… =]
    it include wallets and wall decoration

  376. 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!!

  377. Wow, what wouldn’t I make with it? I would buy varied fabrics to make quilts, crafts, and new summer wardrobe pieces. Thanks for the chance!

  378. 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!

  379. 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!!!*

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

  381. 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

  382. 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 :)

  383. 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*!

  384. 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.

  385. 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.

  386. 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.

  387. 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!

  388. 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!!!!

  389. 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!

  390. I’m WAY into making my 2 year-old daughter dresses… way more into it than she is into wearing them ;-)
    And aprons. Aprons are hot. Thanks for the chance to win!

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

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

  393. 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!

  394. 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.

  395. 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.

  396. 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.

  397. 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….

  398. 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

  399. Friends of ours are getting married in July and we don’t want to buy an impersonal gift, so my boyfriend and I decided we would make them a quilt. A gift certificate for fabric would be perfect!

  400. 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…
    Also I would probably get more blank material to screen print on…
    Super fun!
    Thanks for the opportunity to enter…

  401. I would make curtains and a quilt for my baby that is coming in September.
    And probably a super cute diaper bag for me!!

  402. I would use the fabric to create a fun, colorful quilt. Thanks for having this fun contest.

  403. There are so many things I would make! Baby dresses, shorts for my boy, pillows and pillows and more pillows, stuffed toys, napkins, tablecloths, wall hangings…

  404. I would make some very mod shift dresses for my friends and for myself. And some new curtains for my apartment. And some kitty toys. Aaaaand…..many, many more things. I would be creatively fulfilled and highly entertained for MONTHS!

  405. Oh, I would make toys and dresses for my little princess since I finally am getting a studio to create in!!! I think some purses would be made too!
