    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. Ashley says:

    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. grimsaburger says:

    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. Lyndsey says:

    Dolls, Dolls, and more Dolls!!!!

  5. Nic says:

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

  6. Eliza Sea says:

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

  7. sinless says:

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

  8. Steffie says:

    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!!

  9. Jamie says:

    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!

  10. Missy Ann says:

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

  11. abigailwilliams says:

    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
    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

  12. Amy says:

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

  13. filminthefridge says:

    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!

  14. Meghan says:

    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.

  15. Cheryl Potemkin says:

    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…

  16. Beth Walker says:

    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.

  17. Heather says:

    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!
    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!

  18. Audrey says:

    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!

  19. Catherine says:

    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!

  20. Alisa says:

    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. :)

  21. Heather says:

    Bags! Dresses! Curtains!

  22. says:

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

  23. Jamie in Mpls says:

    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…

  24. clairshearar says:

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

  25. Vivianne says:

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

  26. Kim says:

    I’m already a 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!

  27. Amy W. says:

    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.

  28. Elena says:

    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!

  29. cari s says:

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

  30. stacy says:

    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*

  31. Catherine says:

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

  32. :: ah_champagne says:

    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!

  33. Tina L. says:

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

  34. DebbieKL says:

    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.

  35. barmyowlscoo says:

    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.

  36. laura busse says:

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

  37. Patricia Lupien says:

    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.

  38. nowaks nähkästchen says:

    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!

  39. Mariela says:

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

  40. Nova says:

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

  41. Heidi says:

    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 :)

  42. says:

    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,

  43. Trina says:

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

  44. Lindsey@A Kindred Spirit's Thoughts says:

    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!

  45. Kaitlin says:

    I’d make spring dresses for my niece!

  46. Kandra says:

    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

  47. unicornsRpeople2 says:

    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!!!!!!

  48. raynuuu says:

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

  49. amy says:

    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.

  50. calvarez says:

    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..

  51. Ashley says:

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

  52. leah says:

    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?

  53. thedaintysquid says:

    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!

  54. greetingarts says:

    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…

  55. Lori says:

    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!

  56. Jennifer B says:

    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!

  57. Jenn says:

    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! :)

  58. sibsen says:

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

  59. Lori Kay says:

    I love 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???

  60. Siobhan says:

    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!

  61. Jodi Davis says:

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

  62. Kristine says:

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

  63. Cheryl W says:

    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

  64. littletimebomb says:

    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!

  65. ronivm says:

    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!

  66. jennifer says:

    i would make a new summer wardrobe. pretty simple.

  67. Mattu says:

    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!!

  68. EBrasell says:

    A beautiful spring/summer wardrobe is calling my name!

  69. Cassie says:

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

  70. Lori Kay says:

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

  71. brattypants says:

    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!

  72. jessiebit says:

    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.

  73. MamaPhunk says:

    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!

  74. Suzi(e) Q says:

    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.

  75. Beth says:

    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!

  76. Zombiwoman says:

    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!

  77. Deanna says:

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

  78. Shermanfour says:

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

  79. anne says:

    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!

  80. Donna F says:

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

  81. kelly says:

    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!

  82. Mandy says:

    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.

  83. Marcella says:

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

  84. GJ says:

    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…

  85. mgn says:

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

  86. Ahava says:

    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.

  87. JonnyQuest says:

    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 and Craft so you could see what the fabric had gone to.
    Give it to the poor Art Student!

  88. mynda says:

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

  89. Cassie says:

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

  90. Bani says:

    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? ;)

  91. Sarah says:

    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!

  92. fuzzypeach says:

    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!!!

  93. Leslie says:

    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!

  94. Panya says:

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

  95. Melissa C. says:

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

  96. Heather says:

    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.

  97. Meigh says:

    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.

  98. says:

    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.

  99. Sarah says:

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

  100. C_Penn says:

    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!

  101. Heidi says:

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

  102. ygg says:

    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!

  103. says:

    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.

  104. ruby42 says:

    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.

  105. Melissa says:

    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!

  106. peachicken says:

    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.

  107. sommer says:

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

  108. wix says:

    I’d make my first quilt!

  109. LittleWit says:

    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.

  110. Ansie says:

    Quilts, Quilts, Quilts!!!

  111. Megan A. says:

    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!

  112. E says:

    I’d make some much needed curtains!

  113. colleen says:

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

  114. AbbyT says:

    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.

  115. HW says:

    I have been checking out ‘’, 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 :)

  116. Lane says:

    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.

  117. Lydia says:

    Quilts, quilts, quilts!

  118. Ashley says:

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

  119. katie grove says:

    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!

  120. Kate says:

    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!!

  121. Melissa Anello says:

    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 :)

  122. Lorri says:

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

  123. Carol says:

    Clothes…for me, my kids, my granddaughter!

  124. Corey says:

    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!

  125. Jamie says:

    I would make nursing-friendly summer tops!!

  126. sarahjennie says:

    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!

  127. sea hag says:

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

  128. Hannah says:

    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!

  129. Pearl says:

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

  130. rosebengal says:

    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.

  131. Jane says:

    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.

  132. Kelli says:

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

  133. Shannon says:

    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.

  134. Perrine says:

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

  135. Ashanna says:

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

  136. elaine says:

    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.

  137. Natasha A. says:

    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!

  138. Pamela says:

    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!

  139. Sandy says:

    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!

  140. joyanne says:

    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 :]

  141. Kiriko Moth says:

    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. :)

  142. Christine says:

    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 :)

  143. CC says:

    i would love to make a wall quilt with blackboard fabric

  144. Tori says:

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

  145. Jessica Childers says:

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

  146. Dorion says:

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

  147. JoAnne says:

    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!

  148. Laura Kotelman says:

    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!

  149. Holly says:

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

  150. Sally W. says:

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

  151. says:

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

  152. Rachel says:

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

  153. thesleepyknitter says:

    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!

  154. mel h. says:

    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!

  155. Mikaiya says:

    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!

  156. Nancy says:

    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.

  157. Jenn says:

    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.

  158. JennH says:

    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!

  159. Lauren says:

    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!

  160. Allison L. says:

    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!

  161. bob says:

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

  162. jenn says:

    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!

  163. CarolK says:

    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.

  164. Anonymous says:

    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!!

  165. dark matter says:

    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 :)

  166. Jennifer says:

    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. :)

  167. Lilorfnannie says:

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

  168. feeyonah says:

    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!

  169. Bobbi says:

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

  170. Sarah says:

    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!

  171. mandolyn says:

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

  172. tewing says:

    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.

  173. COlleen says:

    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.

  174. clwein says:

    How lucky I would be!

  175. sydneysnana says:

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

  176. jenny says:

    I would make a quilt!

  177. says:

    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!

  178. Poobert says:

    Skirts skirts skirts! And curtains!

  179. ami says:

    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!

  180. erin says:

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

  181. Sarah says:

    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! :)

  182. KJ says:

    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.

  183. Lisa says:

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

  184. Elizabeth says:

    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!

  185. Catty says:

    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!

  186. Stacy says:

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

  187. Jana says:

    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!

  188. Adrienne says:

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

  189. Shannon says:

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

  190. Kim V says:

    I would make some new clothes for my daughter.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  191. Pam! says:

    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.

  192. Victor says:

    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

  193. thesleepyknitter says:

    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.

  194. Sujomi says:

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

  195. Emily says:

    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.

  196. KJ says:

    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.

  197. Deanne says:

    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

  198. Dani says:

    the things I could do with this!

  199. Marissa Bowers says:

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

  200. Alisha says:

    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.

  201. Miss Molly Mayhem says:

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

  202. stblaize says:

    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 and bits I imagine I will pick up during my sojourn in Central Asia.

  203. Linda j says:

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

  204. Sarah says:

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

  205. morningcrafter says:

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

  206. Dawn says:

    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.

  207. Miss Molly Mayhem says:

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

  208. Sara says:

    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!

  209. mandiegirl says:

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

  210. Andrea says:

    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 people are really cool, I’ve been shopping with them for years. I used to pick up my orders at the warehouse.

  211. Katya says:

    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!)

  212. says:

    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.

  213. schleifnet says:

    bet she would love this

  214. Mary says:

    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.

  215. prentiss says:

    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.

  216. Rhonda says:

    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.

  217. anne says:

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

  218. Meggo says:

    I would make everything. :)

  219. Cass McSparin says:

    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.

  220. Teri Larsen says:

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

  221. Kaitlin says:

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

  222. Adelaide says:


  223. Sarah says:

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

  224. Hepppp says:

    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.

  225. wx says:

    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!

  226. Kimberly says:

    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…

  227. Geminica says:

    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!

  228. Robin says:

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

  229. Amy R says:

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

  230. wendy says:

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

  231. wynk says:

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

  232. Nancy Cook says:

    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!

  233. Jennder says:

    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.

  234. wynk says:

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

  235. Holly says:

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

  236. natali says:

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

  237. eglentyne8 says:

    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

  238. Melissa Esposito says:

    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!

  239. Heidi says:

    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.

  240. Pixie Shtick says:

    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.

  241. kjerstiye says:

    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!

  242. Amy says:

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

  243. cheryl says:

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

  244. Jessa says:

    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!!

  245. Bellkiss Abril-Roman says:

    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

  246. Debbie says:

    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!

  247. Brandy says:

    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!

  248. Whitney says:

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

  249. Stephanie says:

    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.

  250. SparklePaw says:

    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.

  251. Robyn says:

    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!

  252. Tabitha says:

    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!

  253. harleyknitter says:

    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.

  254. Karen says:

    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!

  255. SparklePaw says:

    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!

  256. says:

    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.

  257. macy says:

    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!!!!!!

  258. The Empress of Ice Cream says:

    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.

  259. lissa says:

    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.

  260. Jessica says:

    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.

  261. says:

    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.

  262. Alright In Sort Of A Limited Way For An Off-Night says:

    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.

  263. veryprairie says:

    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!

  264. jayembee says:

    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…

  265. Hope says: is my crack.

  266. melanie says:

    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!

  267. Siobhan says:

    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!

  268. nado says:

    I LOVE 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!

  269. Nate! says:

    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!

  270. Colleen Murray says:

    … 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!

  271. nado says:

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

  272. Michelle says:

    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.

  273. stefalufagus says:

    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.

  274. Alana says:

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

  275. Michelle says:

    Great giveaway – 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??

  276. Laurie says:

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

  277. Sara L. says:

    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..:)

  278. Janine says:

    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!

  279. Leslie says:

    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!

  280. kuklagirl says:

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

  281. Jessie says:

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

  282. Eva says:

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

  283. yankie says:

    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….

  284. Stephanie says:

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

  285. Marya says:

    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?

  286. Helen says:

    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!

  287. betsyann says:

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

  288. orata says:

    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.

  289. Laura says:

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

  290. Heather G. says:

    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 =)

  291. Darice says:

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

  292. noribeads says:

    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~!!

  293. Darice says:

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

  294. Queenie says:

    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!

  295. CindyP says:

    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!

  296. Heather says:

    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!

  297. Mark Lively says:

    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!

  298. says:

    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!

  299. jellyfisharerad says:

    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!

  300. PterodactylPants says:

    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.

  301. Christine S says:

    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…

  302. Suzanne says:

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

  303. Tala says:

    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.

  304. jennie says:

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

  305. Wehaf says:

    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).

  306. crafty1900 says:

    I would make some cute, summery, stuffed animals.

  307. Anjali says:

    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!

  308. Danielle says:

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

  309. esjay says:

    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!

  310. Moonbeam says:

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

  311. ap_ says:

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

  312. nopants_mcgee says:

    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.

  313. Peyton Jayne says:

    Lots and lots of baby pants!

  314. Alyssa Critt says:

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

  315. Katherine says:

    …need i say more?

  316. ms tea says:

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

  317. adrienne says:

    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).

  318. mj says:

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

  319. MRS.MOMMYY says:

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

  320. Lauren Wilson says:

    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!

  321. Ali says:

    I would make gifts for my bridesmaids — clutches!

  322. danielle says:

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

  323. Stephanie says:

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

  324. sarah k. says:

    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.

  325. TheOneBlueGecko says:

    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.

  326. Melissa Hamel-Smith says:

    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.

  327. mitch1066 says:

    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.

  328. Arielle Krohn says:

    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.

  329. lisa says:

    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!

  330. julie says:

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

  331. lowrahk says:

    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!!

  332. jbrazell68 says:

    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.

  333. KushielsTart says:

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

  334. Christopher Weeks says:

    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.

  335. Margie Bennett says:

    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!!

  336. Kerry Walker says:

    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!

  337. Anne-Marie says:

    What a wonderful suprise today :)

  338. snickel says:

    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.

  339. Lisa says:

    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!

  340. Jen says:

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

  341. Alice says:

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

  342. Lisa says:

    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!

    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!)

  344. becca says:

    I think I’d try a nice summer dress.

  345. pingdot says:

    Would love to see what I could make with that!

  346. Susan Kelley says:

    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.

  347. says:

    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

  348. Jamie says:

    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!)

  349. missshelbyraye says:

    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.

  350. Pawdua says:

    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

  351. Carrie says:

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

  353. jewels says:

    quilts! and costumes!

  354. cactus wren says:

    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!

  355. byronmagoo says:

    My love for continues to grow. :)

    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!

  362. Bear says:

    Holy moly! What an exciting giveaway… Craft rocks.

  363. hotcakes says:

    You don’t have to ask me twice.

  364. Gretel Shuvzwichinstov says:

    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.

    My love for 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.

  368. snoozebar says:

    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.

  379. Pipian7 says:

    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.

    Thanks for this offer.
    Blessings and Good Luck to All!!!

  380. Lisa Jordan says:

    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.

  381. kate droste says:

    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.

  382. Kelley M says:

    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 :)

    Thank your the opportunity,
    goddess_jenny @ mystic-caverns dot net

  392. jserdnom says:

    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.

  393. Jessica says:

    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!

  394. Kyla says:

    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 :)

  395. Maggie says:

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

  396. WaterPixie says:

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

  397. Aggie says:

    quilts, quilts…more quilts.

  399. Mistress of Evil Incarnate says:

    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. :)

  400. cdsedlar says:

    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!!

  401. callieapp says:

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

  402. baileygirl5 says:

    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!!!

  403. Caroline M. says:

    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!

  404. Pippa says:

    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!

  405. Dani says:

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

  406. Emily S says:

    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!

  407. Julie Campbell says:

    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!)

  408. Caroline T says:

    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!!!

  409. kat says:

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

  410. Dani says:

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

  411. Ellie says:


  412. mommymae says:

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

  413. Rachel says:

    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?!?

  414. LisaMarie says:

    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.

  415. thea_lamo says:

    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!

  416. Hrobud says:

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

  417. absurdlyvulgar says:

    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!

  418. Kriti says:

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

  419. Anjuli A. says:

    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!

  420. hepkittenatplay says:

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

  421. Maria says:

    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!!

  422. Katie says:

    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.

  423. gadgetgirlnz says:

    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.

  424. Kara says:

    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!

  425. happycho says:

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

  426. Kimberly says:

    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.

  427. Justine says:

    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

  428. TexasWren says:

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

  429. Shelley Jennings says:

    Oh, 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!

  430. amanda says:

    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.

  431. Marisa says:

    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!!

  432. Vicki says:

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

  433. Alexandra Swann says:

    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

  434. missameeames says:

    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.

  435. Shilly Shally Dilly Dally says:

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

  436. Jessica says:

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

  437. Sara Michelle says:

    I would make a new duvet cover for my new room!!!

  438. southernemg says:

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

  439. Hilary says:

    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.

  440. Deborah R says:

    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!

  441. Chris Cribbin says:

    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!

  442. Amanda says:

    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 & for such a great giveaway.

  443. says:

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

  444. ChibiAmagaeru says:

    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.

  445. kyshakitty says:

    I embroider and would love some beautiful cottons to embellish

  446. anntje says:

    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!

  447. sew funky says:

  452. Caroline says:

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

  453. Zarah says:

    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.

  454. Susan Swartz says:

    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 anyway!!

  455. zzipper says:

    I see some pretty summer dresses in my future… thanks!!!!

    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.

    Sue Cahill (sbonetsue at yahoo dot com)

  461. Valérie says:

    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

  462. Harrison says:

    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.

  463. Laura G says:

    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.

    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!

  467. Terri says:

    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!

  468. casey ellison says:

    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!

    i would make so many little projects for around my house!

  470. fefi says:

    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!

  471. brookaloo says:

    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.

  472. CrissyH says:

    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!!

  475. Alison says:

    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.

  476. david renó says:

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

  477. m. grace says:

    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!!

  478. Audrey says:

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

  480. Ashley McFarland says:

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

  481. says:

    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!

  482. Wendy Piersall says:

    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!!!*

  483. RAKEL says:

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

  484. Clever Karen says:

    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

  485. sewbean says:

    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 :)

  486. .samantha. says:

    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*!

  487. elizalou says:

    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.

  488. melissa m. says:

    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.

  489. Susie says:

    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.

  490. Sarah S. says:

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

  491. Sarah says:

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

  492. Sarah says:

    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!

  493. Mariona says:

    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!!!!

  494. Pat S says:

    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!

  495. Dana V. says:

    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!

  496. Val says:

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

  497. Jordan W says:

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

  498. jennyusagi says:

    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!

  499. stacy says:

    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.

  500. Devora says:

    dresses and dresses.

  501. Cristy says:

    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

  502. Christine says:

    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.

  503. Sarah H. says:

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

  504. Leigh says:

    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….

  505. JJ Steeves says:

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

  506. Cynthia Rielley says:

    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

  507. says:

    Dreaming of all the items I could make….

  508. aimeekelley says:

    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!

  509. Jackie H says:

    I would love to make the kiddies some capes for their many adventures! :)

  510. Bethany says:

    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…

  511. whitty says:

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

  512. Caroline says:

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

  513. Angela says:

    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…

  514. culturalcatgirl says:

    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!

  515. Laura says:

    Whoa, that would be an awesome prize. Drool drool drool!

  516. says:

    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!

  517. onyah says:

    A crib quilt for my friend’s new baby. New curtains for my bedroom. A coverlet for my guest bed. Throw pillows for the couch. And so much more!!

  518. Faith says:

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

  519. A'isha says:

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

  520. jen hall says:

    oh this would be “sew” awesome! i am planning a fabric redress of an old dresser of mine. i sure hope i win!

  521. says:

    A quilt to remember my mom.
    Treatments for my naked windows.
    An eco-friendly tote.
    Stuffed animal friends for the kids in my family.

  522. Ginger says:

    Oh my goodness, tried to enter and this site crashed my browser 3 times. Would be nice if you didnt hsve to scroll through all the comments to enter. If I won, I’d make clothes, new curtains for my new apt, and a tablecloth!

  523. Deb says:

    twirl skirts and dress up stuff for my girls!

  524. Joan says:

    I would make a rad new bedspread for my love nest! Then I would make some guest pillows and curtains for our livingroom… but really all I want to do is swim around in all the beautiful fabrics! YUM!

  525. Jen Galan says:

    I would make some skirts and some pants for my little one. And maybe some lavender bags for the dryer.

  526. Stephanie's Sister says:

    I started sewing again this year. The last time I sewed I was 14-years old. Do I dare tell my age, well hell yes, I am now 53.
    I am working on pillows right now but I would love to sew skirts. Especially with nice fabric of many different colors and patterns for many different people.
    Thanks Craftzine for the opportunity.

  527. AmandaWinter says:

    My list could be endless if I let it…
    * make a cute sailor outfit for our friend’s little boy who’s due in July (they both race sailboats)
    * make a new apron for my mom
    * make a quilt for my grandma (to say thank you for everything she’s done for me!)
    * make some cute outfits for my boyfriend’s nieces
    * make some cute outfits for myself!
    * make a handy pocket apron to wear while gardening
    * recover our couch
    * make curtains for our naked living room
    Then I would combine those scraps with all the scraps I have to make an heirloom quilt to one day pass down through generations.
    Oh I hope you pick me… Ever since I lost my job, we just don’t have the funds to support my sewing. I could really make $250 go a long way! Thanks!!

  528. Marsha says:

    Oh gosh, the possibilities are endless! Curtains for my living room! Clothes for my three-year-old daughter! Clothes for myself!

  529. Rachel Lopez says:

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

  530. says:

    I would try really hard to make something for myself. I never take the time for myself any more because of monetary restrictions. I want to make pretty skirts and dresses that make everyone comment how how cute they are :) I would also make my baby niece some little stuffies that she can’t get anywhere else.

  531. lhyink says:

    Doll clothes, tote bags and purses, heirloom dresses for daughter and little babe to be born in the fall.

  532. andrea a. says:

    I would make a patchwork quilt!

  533. Kym says:

    Wow! That amount of fabric would keep my little family in homemade clothes and toys for years!!

  534. ErikaJean says:

    I would make fabric postcards! a whole LOT of them!!!

  535. Alicia S says:

    I would make a baby quilt for my new nephew and attempt to make clothes for me and my son.

  536. Stephanie says:

    I would totally make curtains for my living room, sewing room, and throw pillows!!!

  537. Chelle says:

    What an awesome giveaway! After 10 years of waiting and saving my husband and I are buying a home in the next few months. I would use it to decorate our new home.

  538. betsyk says:

    …but why won’t the page let me sign in? I keep trying and it keeps saying “error on page…” I’m getting frustrated. I’ll feel a lot better as soon as I win this prize, though.

  539. beanerut says:

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

  541. momawake says:

    I can think of several quilts I could make!

  542. beanerut says:

    (sorry for the double post!)

  543. cathy says:

    I would make coordinating clothing for my daughter and her many baby dolls.

  544. smallsmallfaery says:

    I would make my first quilt! I would definitely want to try making clothes and my apartment could use some curtains too.

  545. Thien-Kim says:

    I would love to make fun summer skirts for me and my daughter.

  546. Amy Zim says:

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

  547. jody says:

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

  548. morrasutherland says:

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

  549. Michele P. says:

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

  550. nesa says:

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

  551. erin416 says:

    I would make all of the patterns that were left to me by my grandmother. Some day I’ll try them all out!
    Thanks! Erin

  552. norarachel says:

    With twins on the way I would make a bunch of pants for them and my daughter. And a dress for myself.

  553. alison gordon/wonderlandq says:

    quilts! lots and lots of quilts for my friends…

  554. Megera says:


  555. Shanna says:

    Holy cow, I would go hog wild and make myself a whole new summer wardrobe of adorable skirts and sundresses.

  556. Heather S says:

    I would make lots of patchwork baby quilts that I donate to the children’s hospital!

  557. Alissa says:

    I would make a quilt for my little girl. And a skirt for me.

  558. Kathy says:

    I’d make skirts, a quilt, and some kid-pants. I probably wouldn’t donate any of what I made except as possible gifts to family and friends…

  559. Margaret says:

    I’d love to win. I’ve got a doll project I’d like to get underway and this would help a lot.

  560. camelama says:

    Wooo! I would whip up a summer wardrobe for the new job I really need. :)

  561. Kacie says:

    I would make quilts galore and probably actually do all of the projects around the house I always think about doing but never do. And, I’d make lots of gifts for people I love. Fun! Thanks for giving this away – even if I don’t win, I’m super excited that someone will get such a great gift! :o)

  562. Chris says:


  563. Aviva says:

    Hi there!
    We would upholster a chair with some large scratches. Our cat has been on a ‘soft claw’ diet for awhile now and we finally feel safe in fixing the problem.
    Thanks so much for running this giveaway! :)

  564. homemadebyjill says:

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

  565. Laura in Portland says:

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

  566. Elidé says:

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

  567. holly says:

    Yay, Fabric! Thanks for the giveaway!

  568. Tina Phan says:

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

  569. Jeannie says:

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

  570. Andrea says:

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

  571. Bobby-Jo says:

    oh my word! that would be absolutely amazing!

  572. Meeca Smith says:

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

  573. thoushaltcupcake says:

    I love fabric! This contest is great

  574. Nicole says:

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

  575. Emilie says:

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

  576. sec says:

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

  577. Sarah Lee says:

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

  578. Heather Jane says:

    Baby blankets, patchwork balls, sundresses, curtains for my dining room. This list is endlessly endless.

  579. Tom Workman says:

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

  580. Meg says:

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

  581. Jennifer Ladd says:

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

  582. trinkers says:

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

  583. LisaB says:

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

  584. culturalcatgirl says:

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

  585. Adel says:

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

  586. Cory says:

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

  587. NightChae'd says:

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

  588. mikamika says:

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

  589. Malka says:

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

  590. Katelyn says:

    i would make lots of fun clothes for my daughters!

  591. Sue says:

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

  592. Nalie says:

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

  593. Kate says:

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

  594. KYouell says:

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

  595. scouttle says:

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

  596. Andi says:

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

  597. Will says:

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

  598. Violet says:

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

  599. Vilma says:

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

  600. Cath says:

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

  601. Katherine says:

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

  602. says:

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

  603. Jessica says:

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

  604. jessica says:

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

  605. Sidney says:

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

  606. ClaireP says:

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

  607. Lillian says:

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

  608. Mai says:

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

  609. BlueAndGreenDesigns says:

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

  610. Mai says:

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

  611. amhv says:

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

  612. Ann says:

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

  613. Barbara says:

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

  614. kelly says:

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

  615. Bugsy says:

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

  616. DianeH says:

    Wow – great giveaway! I would completely redecorate my

  617. Totoro says:

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

  618. kerrydd says:

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

  619. mub says:

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

  620. cinnascents says:

    Would make some beautiful little girl clothes!!

  621. Aimee Bush says:

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

  622. Michelle says:

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

  623. Michelle says:

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

  624. Ida in Central Pennsylvania says:

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

  625. Shanna says:

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

  626. mikatana says:

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

  627. Sarah says:

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

  628. Melissa says:

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

  629. Journie says:

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

  630. Kate says:

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

  631. Anne says:

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

  632. Jaids says:

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

  633. christy says:

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

  634. Cher says:

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

  635. Jennifer says:

    I’d make a TON of stuff and have a blast doing it!!

  636. Kelly E says:

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

  637. Bladerunner says:

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

  638. Jeanette Fields says:

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

  639. Christine says:

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

  640. greeblygreebly says:

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

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

  642. Jenzette says:

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

  643. Deb says:

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

  646. Vanessa Lauria says:

    With that much fabric, I’d be set for years! I would buy

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

  649. Rosa says:

    Wow! I would make my first ever quilted baby blanket

  650. keasterling says:

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

  651. Jessi says:

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

  652. BitterEpiphany says:

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

  653. Brooke says:

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

  654. domesticambitions says:

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

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

  657. Ashley Ann says:

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

  658. Gretchen says:

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

  659. Amanda C says:

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

  660. Josh says:

    I would make grandpa pants!

  661. Krista says:

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

  662. aldin124 says:

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

  663. Erika says:

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

  664. Deana Hager says:

    New curtains would be great!!

  665. Jenny says:

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

  670. Kristen says:

    I’m a new sewer with a plan to make all of my Christmas gifts this year – purses, bags, baby blankets… you name it. This would get me started in a great way!

  671. freq_out says:

    I want to buy lots of Jay McCarroll fabric and make a wrap skirt and a bag. And then I’ll need to think of some other stuff to make (a nice problem to have).

  672. ashley says:

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

  673. Ben Jarrell says:

    Thanks Craftzine :)

  675. Heather says:

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

  676. Emory says:

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

  677. Sharon says:

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

  678. laura k says:

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

  679. Moni says:

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

  680. cadauna says:

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

  681. HeatherA says:

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

  682. piopio says:

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

  683. andrea.d says:

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

  684. Brooke says:

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

  685. Debby says:

  687. Knittingrid says:

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

  688. Linda from Vegas says:

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

  689. Jenny Kim says:

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

  690. says:

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

  691. Sarah Day says:

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

  692. mariessa says:

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

  693. kina says:

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

  694. nashzoo says:

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

  695. Carrie Wilson says:

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

  696. Christina Dixon says:

    I would use it toward making my grandmother a quilt.

  697. SarahA says:

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

  698. carla english says:

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

  699. Katie says:

    ooh! ooh! summer dresses! sumer dresses!

  700. Xela Monster says:

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

  701. Katie says:

    ooh! ooh! summer dresses! summer dresses!

  702. 7stitches says:

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

  703. Cyndi L says:

    And toys!
