Happy Friday, and a happy 4th to all of you in the US! The blog has been a bit quiet recently – mostly due to the summer and, um, those kids… they don’t seem to like me spending my time sewing (0r blogging about it!). Weird. We also unexpectedly decided to sell our home, which of course is stressful, and not so much fun. Sewing is taking a bit of a back seat, consequently.
But today? Today we have a fun giveaway from one of my sponsors, Honey Be Good. Karen sells all the best organic fabrics and supplies. New in the shop? This great organic line by Carolyn Gavin for Windham Fabrics, Petite Fleur.
I had a chance to make up a couple tops a few months back, and it’s really lovely. I made Hazel a cute little baby popover
and a coordinating adult popover for myself (the faces I make while wearing my popover are not as cute, so luckily you’re spared!).
I wear this one quite a bit – I think this print works well for a top – from afar it’s kind of just a navy/white graphic print, which I like. I’ve tried to move from quilting cotton for clothing for myself, but this organic cotton is quite nice, especially as a button down/popover (the Grainline Archer pattern would be a great one if you were looking for a similar button down look).
Today Karen is giving away a fat quarter bundle of the Petite Fleur line plus the included alphabet panel. This giveaway is open to US customers. Please leave a comment here (one per person, please!). If you want to let met know your usual 4th of July traditions, that’d be fun, or you could let me know what you imagine making from these fun organic fabrics.
The giveaway is open through Sunday night. I’ll select a winner on Sunday evening and will edit this post to announce the winner. Can’t wait? Karen is offering $10 off all orders of $50 or more from Thursday July 3 – Sunday July 6 with coupon code: FIREWORKS
Updated: I selected a backup winner, and that’s #12, Lauren! Congrats! (I’ve sent you an email!)
