Frolic with Fabric Spot! {a challenge *entries closed}

2014 May 27

Good Tuesday to you all. I’m excited to share Thread Riding Hood’s first ever Fabric Challenge with you today! Fabric Spot and I have teamed up to give away 4 delicious organic bundles. Yes, I said 4 of you can qualify for the challenge, Hooray!

Ever since I met Karen last year she has been a promoter of organic fabrics. They are better for the environment and for our bodies, because the plants used to make the fabric are grown without pesticides, herbicides and genetically modified seeds. Just think how much better you and your (grand) kids feel without all that next to your skin! She stocks the largest organic fabric collection available online in Canada, including lots of organic solids to go with your organic prints.

She has recently stocked the birch collection “Frolic” (organic of course!) in both the pink and blue colourways. Check it out! I love the “hidden” animals and the flying whale might just be my favorite. Perfect for some summer sewing!

Karen from Fabric Spot will be sending 4 challengers one fat quarter bundle of Frolic each. Two pink bundles and two blue bundles in total. The challengers will sew something using each fabric in the bundle, photograph it and then I will post the finished projects here at the end of the month. I’m so excited to see what everyone will come up with!

Here are the details: (due to shipping time, this contest is open to Canadian and US readers only)

  • Comment on this post between today and Thursday night (May 29th) following the directions below.
  • I will chose, email and post the winners on the blog this Friday. Karen will ship the bundles as soon as she receives everyone’s address.
  • The challengers find the bundles in the mail (Yay!) and use only the fat quarter bundle fabric to sew their creation. They can add whatever other embellishments they wish to their project.
  • Contestants post their project photos on their blog, Flickr site or (not-private) Facebook page by June 27th with links to Fabric Spot and Thread Riding Hood. Thankfully projects get finished more quickly with a deadline right?!
  • Here’s the fun part for me – I get to post project photos here on June 30th with links to the challenger’s original posted photos! Maybe the challengers will even give us a little write-up on their process. (hint, hint?!)

To qualify for a chance to win (*entries closed), make one comment below that includes the following four things: 1)What city/town you live in. 2) Which bundle you would use – pink or blue. 3) What you would make with the fabric. 4) A link to a photographed previous project you have created. (By commenting you agree that if you are chosen, you will complete and photograph your project by June 27th so we can post them all in time, Thank you!)

Have fun! See you on Friday to find out who wins.

    How fun! I would love to use the blue to make a diaper bag and some baby accessories….I have lots of friends having boys :) They would make an awesome patchwork panel to use on the bag exterior, and maybe some matching softies, or burp cloths accented with the scraps!

    I love these fabric bundles. I live in Pickering, Ontario and I would use the blue one for my little guy. I make banana a bibs and toy tethers. I would make a quilted tether for his sippy cup to enjoy some cool water during the hot summer.

    1 – Moses Lake, which is a rural town in Washington. My closest fabric store is 1.5 hours away!
    2 – Definitely the blue. The pink is cute, but my boys wouldn’t appreciate it :)
    3 – I got addicted to making mini quilts not long ago, so I think I would make one to hang in their room.

    Hi Sherri!
    I’d love the chance to sew with a bundle of Frolic:)
    1. I live in Lower East Pubnico, NS ( about 35 minutes from Yarmouth)
    2. I’d like to use the blue bundle (looks pretty gender neutral to me)
    3. I’d like to make a baby quilt (provided it is ok to use fabric from my stash for backing/binding) or a divided basket with the Noodlehead pattern.
    4. her is the link https://www.flickr.com/photos/87520492@N07/

    Thanks! :)

    I live north of Edmonton, AB.
    I have two girls, so I’d use the pink :)
    I would love to make either a large fabric basket for holding toys or a big pouf/floor pillow for reading.
    Here’s a photo from my Flickr stream that shows some things I’ve made. https://www.flickr.com/photos/58034271@N08/11701516243/ For more, check out my blog :)

    I live in Mission, BC. I would choose the Blue bundle, I love the color combos in that one! I think I would make the Noodlehead 241 Tote, like this one: https://www.facebook.com/reecespiecesart/photos/pcb.575113332602197/575113105935553/?type=1&theater

    It’s such a fun bag and is a great way to show off lots of fabric choices.

  24. May 29, 2014

    Ohhh! How did I miss this! I wanna play!! :)

    I’m in London, Ontario and i’d love a crack at that pink bundle! Absolutely adorable!! What would I make…. hmm… that’s tough! Something fun & summery for sure, i’m leaning towards a tote-library bag of some sort! You can see my creations & photos on my FB page!

    Oh this is fun! A giveaway with a mission :)
    1) I live in Renton, WA
    2) I’m more biased to blue because that’s my second favorite color (after green) but both are fun! I think the pink one will especially be fun for summer.
    3) Okay so I have a few things I have in mind. I’d either make a wallet, clutch, purse, a tote bag, or a pillow cover!
    4) Here’s something that I made for my best friend’s birthday! https://buzzofthebees.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/2014-04-12-16-22-27.jpg
