May Day Giveaway Day - Part 2

This is Part 2 of May Day Giveaway Day Week.  You can view Part 1 here, where you can enter to win a Vintage Sheet Reversible Market Bag.

In this post I'm givingaway a bundle of 10 vintage sheet fat quarters.

Here is a repeat if you haven't been to Part 1 yet (if you have been to Part 1 just skip down to comment to enter), Sew, Mama, Sew! is doing it again, they are having their Giveaway Day Week link up party.  A week where bloggers and shops can gather to one location and have a giveaway hop.

Sew, Mama, Sew! has ingeniously broken down on how you can go to giveaways that appeal to you.  If you're just interested in bags there is a whole giveaway section for that, or if it's just supplies you want well there are giveaways for you too.  Just hop on over to Sew, Mama, Sew! to see the list of all the bloggers and shops who are participating. 

I will be participating in two giveaways this time, one will be a bag, as seen over in this post, and the other will be supplies, a bundle of 10 vintage sheet fat quarters (see below). 

As some of you already know I'm into vintage sheets.  I love the flowy, softness of them and their colors are fantastic.  This has become my median of choice for my sewing/crafting/obsession.  My handmade items I sell on Etsy are mainly out of vintage sheets, with the occasional new fabric listing. Right now I have a variety of bags, bunting, and fat quarter bundles.  All out of vintage sheets. 

So for this giveaway you have a chance to win a bundle of 10 vintage sheet fat quarters to do what ever your heart fancies.   This stack here is the actual bundle up for grabs. 
Vintage sheet bundle, up for grabs.


You have two chances to enter.

2.) For a second entry let me know if you follow my blog (recent or old). 

This giveaway is open Internationally until Friday, May 25 5:00 p.m. PST.  The winner will be chosen at random that following Saturday, May 26.

  3. I love that stripe pattern! And, I can't get enough of vintage sheets, either. I can't stop thinking they are someone's heirlooms-- someone's grandma's linens. Making something new with that kind of history is awesome.
