Long time no sewing and a GIVEAWAY!!


This was without a doubt the longest I have gone with out sewing! Yesterday I put my foot down and demanded sewing time. Ella needs clothes for the Summer (Romy now inherits Ella's clothes!) and I needed to get all these UFO's under control. But I have hardly made a dent, sad to say. Nevertheless, Silverlake the jacket that is in the book Sewing clothes kids love, is done!



And not only did I finally get to sew Silverlake but I also got to use this totally rad fabric by Farbenmix called Tattoo-Kids. Ella was over the moon in love with this fabric from the start. I used nice ribbon accents and lined the jacked with fleece. It is going to be perfect!

Now I am sorry to say that I didn't manage to get this lovely fabric for the shop. The communication was bad and there was not enough for me to buy anymore for retail.

But and here is the great news and the GIVEAWAY part, I am sending off a meter (and it is 1.40 Meters wide!!) of LOVEchirp! One lucky winner will be able to make something beau*ti*full :)

I forgot to add, that LOVEchirp is another fabric from Farbenmix created by Luziapimpinella and LOVEchirp turned out to be super popular!



To enter I would love it if you could help m spread the word about my shop! If you love Bunte Fabrics let everyone who likes high quality fabrics now :) Or leave a comment here and tell me what you like about the shop!

The winner will be chosen on June 1st, 2010 (goodness can you believe it is June soon????) and will be announced here on my blog.

Good Luck!!!!

Oh Yvonne, that little jacket is darling! I love it. I was wondering when you were going to post a creation again.
I love the fabric you are giving away. Reminds me of the tole painting my mother and aunties use to do. It looks very Norwegian.
I am going to tweet this giveaway!

Tracy said...

Let's see - I love just about every fabric, ribbon and trim in your shop! I also love to see what you sew up for your girls.

Jenny said...

oh my goodness. i am a novice when it comes down to it. i have just fallen very hard for your Stenzo and Westfalen lines of fabric you are carrying! wow. i mean WOW. those are awesome. must start squirreling away some money now for those!!!

Jen said...

I really like this version of the Silverlake jacket!

I love that your shop is carrying the Stenzo delft print - you're the only one that I've seen with it online and now that I have 3 yds of it I've been waiting for the right pattern. And there are so many other wonderful fabrics in your shop. I will link to your giveaway on my blog.

That jacket is so cute. The fabric is awesome! I can see why she loves it.

I love your shop because it has fabrics I never see anywhere else!

pieceLove said...

I think you're cool because you won a contest on Spoonflower-so you're obviously a great designer, but you also have a beautiful fabric selection here.

Patty said...

Your little jacket is so cute! I love all the different fabrics I can find in your shop.

It looks great Yvonne - you are so lucky to have gotten some of the new farbenmix fabric. It's so cute. What i love about the shop - that's easy - you sell fabulous euro fabrics which are super hard to find in the US.

Megan said...

What I like about the shop? The selection and the attention to organic and strict standards. I also love you and love your kids, but not in a creepy way. I would make some super cute bags and backpacks with this fabric.

Bellabebeco said...

What a beautiful jacket - my daughter would love that fabric too. I've stumbled across your wonderful shop and was ooing and ahhing when I saw the link to your blog. I'd love to enter your giveaway - I love any bird fabrics. Your Spoonflower bird on a wire fabric is gorgeous.
Your online shop is great because it loads quickly, and is very easy to navigate. It's also a wonderfully cheerful design... and a great selection of fabrics.

I've been eyeing the Silverlake pattern but haven't jumped in yet.. I love your rendition of it! And the LoveChirp is beautiful!!

Lynette said...

Hi Yvonne, where do I begin I sit and look through your shop for hours to see all the beautiful fabrics ( I am a fabricholic) your designs are awesome. If I lived locally I would bring along a van for all my fabrics!!! Here in Australia we do not have the choice of fabrics so I am so lucky to have your store. I have spread the word. Thank You
Lynette

Love the fabric. It also has been too long since sewing for me. This long weekend I started and finished a Brooklyn top from the same book.
