Fabric Giveaway! from Sew Love Christmas

First, I am so glad you have been enjoying my "Stitch Your Life" posts.  I've heard from many who are taking the plunge into first sewing projects!  Hurray!  There's a new tab up top so that you can easily reference the whole series.  If you have any requests for future posts, I'd love to hear them.

Now on to the goodies!  My sweet sponsor Ruth of Sew Love Fabrics & Sew Love Christmas, is giving one of my readers this complete 1/2 yard set of Christmas Spice by Michael Miller!

Christmas Spice Fabric Giveaway!


Isn't it fun!  That's a total of 4 lovely yards and more than enough to get you off to a running start on Christmas sewing this year!  This is the same line I'm using to make my spiderweb Christmas tree skirt.  I love that it includes red and green, but in less traditional tones.  And the addition of pink and teal just makes me smile!


Enter to Win!


For your chance to win, comment here telling us what you would make with Christmas Spice!

Enter now through noon (EST) Thursday, August 19th.  Winner will be announced Thursday afternoon!

  1. Definitely a Christmas table runner or even possibly a quilt. I don't what has happened to my sewing time but there just isn't enough of it for my liking! I love this fabric.

  5. I've been wanting to make some advent type gift holders for some time now; I think this fabric would be perfect! But I do really like the bunting idea in a previous post!

  6. I'm sure there's a better use for such gorgeous fabric, but I see gift wrap bags... they are so bright and cheerful, they remind me of gift wrap!

  7. well, as i told you yesterday, i love these fabrics on your spider web project. if these came to live with me, i think i would have to make a quilted christmas table runner, and matching tree skirt. , and with the scaps... perhaps some christmas flags for the front porch. this is actually one of the few christmas lines that i could see myself using. i love it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would make stockings for my two newly-married children and their spouses.... and I would secretly make baby stockings to match and hide them away for the future. And I would make small stocking ornaments for their trees and mine and if there were any little scraps left over I would piece together enough for Christmas pillow covers and maybe a Christmas apron. Every bit used. I ADORE Michael Miller.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh Goodness! I was just looking at this line and drooling over it- it would go perfectly with our Christmas colors and I would love to make a table runner and two new stockings for my husband and I, it will be his first Christmas home with me since we got married- he had to spend the last on in Iraq :(. Thanks for doing such a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yay! Since I am trying to make this Christmas the most handmade Christmas yet --- the possibilities are endless! I know I want to make a large Santa sack for delivering gifts for sure and definitely some new pillow covers for the sofa in the room where we have our tree. Those fabrics are just wonderful Rachel --- thanks for this chance to win!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh my goodness! I would make stockings, and cocktail napkins, and coasters, or maybe some adorable pot holders.. I'd definitely make ornaments from scraps, and probably some christmas socks for my cat! :o) I may even make a festive but cute clutch purse from these!

    ReplyDelete
  40. We've just moved and I can't remember what I put in storage and what I actually shipped here but I am thinking I would love to make stocking for our fireplace and maybe a matching tree skirt!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. We always have a Family Christmas party on Christmas Eve with tons of food served buffet style. I'd use this gorgeous fabric to make a nifty quilted holiday tablecloth!

    ReplyDelete
  42. For the last few years I've been living in a country whose people generally don't celebrate Christmas.... I've missed the festivities of Christmas :( Especially now that I've seen this beautiful fabric!! I'm having fantasies of a christmas tree skirt, a table runner, 3 stockings for my husband, baby and me, and a bunch of beautiful fabric ornaments with the left overs (left overs? am I kidding myself?)

    ReplyDelete
  43. This year we are going for a handmade Christmas. My daughters will be making several different types of cookies - what better way to wrap them than in a handmade Christmas patterned cloth sleeve tied with a lovely ribbon. That is what I would make with these fabrics. Carolina

  44. I would love to make a tree skirt and maybe a pillow with these fabrics! Thank You!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I would probably make a tree skirt. I have a tree skirt that I really like that the Mr and one of our cats dislikes (she seems to think it's her personal bathroom). So my cute little tree needs a new tree skirt and we decorate in non-traditional Christmas colors so these fabrics would be perfect for us and a new tree skirt.

    In anticipation of Prep and Landing (anybody know what I'm talking about?), I'd love to make a small couch quilt specially to watch the holiday specials with my special guy and special son :)
    (Prep and Landing is an animated ABC special that was new , i think, last year). My 2 year old still quotes the cartoon....and has become a family fav!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love those fabrics. We've just moved to a new house so I'd love to make some fun new decorations for our first Christmas here. I think a wreath for the door and some bright garlands for the tree would look amazing

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'd have to make a stocking and blanket for my baby-boy-on-the-way. He'll be just 3 months his first Christmas this year! :)

  51. I love that designers are adding more pops of color into the traditional reds & greens of Christmas. I've been thinking of doing a Christmas dog bed cover for her bed in the living room, and after that the remainder would go towards a coordinating runner for the coffee table. Love the fabric wreath idea from another commenter too!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oooh, these look lovely! I would make a Christmas wedding quilt for one of my friends. She likes blue, so this line would be perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I really really want to make a contemporary print Christmas quilt that is about 60 X 60 to hang in my living room during the holidays. I want it to be the focul point of my decorations this year. These prints would be so perfect! Thanks for the chance!

  54. Hello!
    I just saw this too fun fabric up close and in person at my local quilt shop. Can I name names?? The Quilted Garden in Edwardsville, Il.
    I would make my new Quilt Guild "Secret Sister"
    a table runner or tree skirt for Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ooooohhhh! I see table runners, wall art, gift wrap, fabric scrap wreaths, banners, fabric chains, and so much more. I really hope I win this one! Drooling is happening in abundance over here right now.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hard to say, but I think I would try to make patchwork shirts or a shirt and a dress for my kids. That would make an adorable Christmas picture.

    ReplyDelete
  58. They look so beautiful ...I would love to make a Christmas quilt with them for my little gal....

    ReplyDelete

  62. hhhmmmm... what does the novice make for his/her first project? (this will actually be my second, I sewed a heart shaped pillow in 7th grade home-ec class) I think I would love to make beautiful Christmas cloth napkins!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'd make bunting for sure and probably a table runner--that is just for starters!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Wow what fantastic fabric!!! I would make a christmas wallhanging of some description. Having grown up in the UK all my christmassy things are quite traditional and the deeper reds and greens but now living in NZ I find that they don't work well at all for a summer christmas! Many thanks for the chance of entering this great giveaway. x

  66. Also, I just linked to your giveaway on my blog www.madebymeaghan.blogspot.com. I'm in the mood for Christmas craftiness now! :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Lovely! I would make basket/box liner, jar lid covers, clove-scented hot mats for casseroles, and the snowflake or checks patterns would be excellent for cross stitching little pillows or pictures with special messages for loved ones.

    The materials would also be wonderful for padded picture frames, scrapbook albums or potpourri ornaments for the tree! I am inspired!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I would make stockings for our family! We have been using store-bought ones and I don't think I can stand to use them another year. This fabric is beautiful and perfect for 5 stockings. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Jennifer :)

  72. I think a baby holiday string quilt with this would be awesome backed with the little christmas tree print....matching bib and booties....
    Or perhaps a card holder. Such cute fabric!

    ReplyDelete
