Giveaway Day

I am putting this up a day early as mornings in my household are crazy. I could not garuntee I could get to this post till in the afternoon which would be too late.
In the pack you will get the following items:
A self covering button kit along with some scraps of fabrics (these will match the fat quarter I am including) to use with them if you like.
A fat quarter of Amy buttler fabric
A spool of Gutterman thread
Plus I will make a little tote bag that will suit the winner.

To win leave a comment and tell me what you would do with the thread, fat quarter and button kit.

I've never tried to do the button covers before, but I'd love to learn! I'd probably make a small decorative pillow for my daughter's bed (or dollys), or maybe make her some little tea cloths or placemats to dress her play kitchen with.

I think I might have come to your page too early because I can't see the picture of the fabric. What I would make with it and the buttons would really depend on that. But I am really into making suffolk puff and hexagon quilts and little dress and bloomer sets for my daughter. And bonnets! I am obsessed with bonnets! She will have to wait for summer to come round before she could wear those of course.

Buttons I would make for a purse, fabric would go in my stash because I have no Amy Butler, except some home decor fabric. I would love to make something for my little girl too.

Ooooh. It doesn't take much to get me giddy. You had me at fat quarter and got me thrilled with thread and a tote. ;)

As for what I'd make....uh. Depends on the fabric (can't see it yet) but probably a wallet. I need to make myself a new one and Amy BUtler is irresistible no matter what the print.

Sandra :) said...

Oh that's beautiful fabric - it would look great as a pretty little zipper bag embellished with covered buttons (which I've never made before) - there might even be enough fabric for a matching coin purse :) Thank you for the pretty giveaway - I came over from your other blog!

CMEH said...

I think that this would be perfect for some embroidered buttons so I can made some hair accessories.... headbands, elastics... maybe some flower pins to coordinate.... very pretty stuff!

Samantha S said...

I would make a little skirt for my daughter with the fat quarter, and the fabric covered button would almost certainly find its way to the back of a little 3T dress. :)

I looked through the other comments, and I like the hair accessories idea. It's super hot in Texas during the summer, and I need something to hold my hair back! Thanks for the giveaway! realbeal-at-gmail-dot-com

Nice giveaway, I'd use it to make a clucth

McGinty and Me said...

I love this fabric - i would use it to make a take-along pillow & maybe a coffee cup holder. At the moment I seem to be spending saturdays watching my son rowing & I would love to have a nice pillow to sit on & a nice up of coffee to keep me warm!
Thanks for a great giveaway

emma said...

I would make some button magnets to hang up my boys million drawings or maybe just some for me to use in my projects!

djaj said...

hum... Thead and fatquarter, I think I would try to make an appliqué bloc, of pouch, or pillow... Oh yes, a pillow, and I would use the buttons on the back to keep it closed !

Nancy Sue said...

With those supplies in the giveaway, I think I'll try a quilted cell phone case :) There is an episode of King of Queens where Carrie makes these horrible cases, that plays in the back of my mind, but hopefully mine will come out better :)

I'd love to be able to cover buttons and I'd use them and the fabric to make a fabric box with buttons to open the compartments. Thanks for the giveaway, Lis x

I've never made covered buttons, so this would be a good opportunity to start. I would make some buttons for a pillow.

Raheli said...

Hi! I've never made fabric covered buttons, but I have a special shirt that I am going to be working on soon (found the most beautiful gauzy pink cotton) and I think it might need a special button :-)
Thanks!

SoozeM said...

Ooh what a fantastic giveaway!! Hmm a fat quarter, covered button kit, and thread, sounds like a recipe for a bag to me!! :)

I would make matching flowers and little bags for my two girlies with all that goodness!

Kimberly said...

I'd love the goodies. I would probably make up some zipper pouches with the fabric, and use the covered buttons for some hair clips or ties. Fun stuff! Thank you for the giveaway!
