GIVEAWAY: Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Week! CLOSED

It's that time of year again.

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Week.

During SMS giveaway week there are a ton of giveaways from all kinds of folks.  Sewing/crafting supplies and handmade items.  It's great fun.

I've participated before but I think I skipped the one earlier in the year.  So I'm due to round up something FABULOUS to give away.

And what is more fabulous than FABRIC.

Holy crap, yinz are in for a crazy prize this year.

But before I show you pics, I have to make this announcement.

GIVEAWAY IS U.S. ONLY.

I'm giving away a big ass prize here and I can't afford to ship it internationally.


See!  I'm not joking.  That's a big ass priority mail box.  The $12 ish dollar to mail it size and that bad boy is busting out full of fabric.

It's a big fat destash box JUST FOR YOU!

(so that's why I have to keep it to U.S. only. . .I'm not a grinch, I swear. . .ok, I am a grinch but not in this case)

Want a taste of what's in that there big ass box?

Of course you do.


Oh, I can't show you every little thing because, well, I'm lazy as hell and just don't want to.  How's THAT for honesty, huh?

Here's some more honesty for you.

This box is packed with fabric and it's all destash/scrappy items.  That means it's stuff I don't want anymore.  BUT, that doesn't mean it's crap.  I don't keep crap in my stash.  This is all fabric I either got as part of scrap bags, got in swaps, used a bit of and have too much leftovers, or just plain hoarded because hoarding happens and now I'm having hoarder guilt and this is the perfect way to soothe myself.



It's all quilting weight cotton from various sources. There are all sizes, too.  A lot of fat quarters, a bit of yardage, and a bit of truly scrappy sizes.  (I think the smallest bit is about a six inch square, kind of a funky size).  But NO itty bitty pieces or odd ball shaped trimmings.  Remember, I said there was no crap here.

Oh, and there is some truly vintage stuff here, too.


Yes, that tag there proves that red christmas print is truly vintage.  A lot of the christmas fabric (all pictured) is.  I snipped off what I wanted from it and now I just have to be honest with myself and admit I'm never going to use the rest.

(oh, that print on the far right in the christmas pic there is the smallest scrap size)

All of the fabric is in good, unwashed condition.

I can't even begin to guess how many total yards of fabric are in that box because I was too damn lazy to unfold every bit and measure and then add it all up.  Pishaw to all that.  I just went through my stash and grabbed up stuff that I didn't have any love for anymore.

SO. . .what do you have to do to try and win this mass of fabric?

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

  31. I am totally interested in your big ass destash/scrappy priority box. There is nothing wrong with someone else's stash. There is fabric I am sure I don't have. Besides, this is what really matters. You are giving away fabric. We all want fabric. We want to win fabric. Thank you for being a part of the Sew Mama Sew giveaway and giving me the chance to win this box full of quilty fabric. Merry Christmas to you.
