Giveaway day!


Hooray, its giveaway day over at Sew Mama Sew and I'm playing!

I am giving you the chance to win a 50cm x 42cm vintage sheet square that I have screen printed with a tree design,

and three one meter lengths of ric rac that I have crocheted.

All you have to do is let me know what you would do with the print or the ric rac should you be the lucky winner.

Here's an example of something I made earlier using the printed sheet and the ric rac.

The possibilities are endless and I can't wait to hear your ideas.

  • Leave me a comment with your idea on this post for an entry.
  • If you follow my blog let me know for a second entry.
  • Make sure you leave an email or link to your profile so I can get in touch with you should you be the lucky winner.
  • Entries close Thursday May 20th at midnight AEST and I will randomly pick a winner on Friday 21st May.
  • I am happy to post to where ever the lucky winner comes from.

You've gotta be in it to win it so get commenting peeps.

And may your Monday be a funday!

  1. oh! I am not sure I am up for making clothing out of that delicious sheet... it would most likely be a beautiful curtain or part of a fabric board. the ric rac, of course, would become come feathers on (owl)ies I do believe.

    I am one of the brilliant people who follow you ;)

  2. I LOVE your tree! I would make a dress for Annie-Rose, yes I would, it would be her Katie Dress xxxx

  3. As you say the possibilities are endless... mmmmmm... I know that I would use the ric-rac to embellish a little frock for my little Ms. Learning how to crochet ric-rac is on my list of things to learn because I have great imaginings of creating beautiful frocks.
    And the screen print... it is so special and I love it so much that I don't know if I'd have the heart to use it for children's clothes where it would be outgrown in a matter of moments. Perhaps then I would use it as part of a picnic blanket quilt (another project on my mental list of things to make on day). Your tree would be the perfect motif for such a creation.
    What a totally ACE giveaway!!!

  4. First, I would have to covet these items for a time... then, eventually, I would make the vintage into a couch cushion to gaze at often. The ric-rac might adorn a pincushion or a needle book, also so that they could be admired for a long time. :)

    I follow you on my reader!

    Cheers.

  5. I do cross stitch and I would use the Ric Rac as finishing on some of my ornaments that I make and green vintage sheet would be turned into a bag or part of.

  6. YAY for giveaway day!

    this is so much fun I did a giveaway last year but have been sick so have opted out of this time round:(

    would love to win!

    Im thinking the material would make a really cool throw cushion for my daughters bed shes into green atm

    the crochet ric rac is devine and will adorn some of the winter dresses I have planned for my daughter also

    good luck to all who enter!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hmmm, well, the ric rac would have to go on some applique! I love it ric rac for stems and vines and the fabric looks perfect for a journal cover..
    So glad that you're participating Kate..

  8. Didn't even know there was a global Giveaway Day! Must be living with my head in the sand or sumpin!! lol.
    mmmm.....I think I'd like to make some scrappy vintage style aprons with the sheet and I'm thinking the ric rac would go down a treat on those aprons!
    Thanks for a fabulous giveaway Kate! x

    ReplyDelete
  9. oops! p.s. yes I follow too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. The fabric is gorgeous (love green with that tree!) and it would be used for a little girls skirt, the green ric rac would go on the skirt for trim and the other coloured ric rac would be saved for another day :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think I would have to make a swing dress for Pop-inator as it is soo sweet, but I think a sheered one so that I can get the dress to shirt wear. That croched ric rac though is going straight to the mummy pile - divine! and I will never have a hope of recreating that. I think a denim skirt would so need a bit of ric rac love.
    I think I am a follower?!
    So lovely to meet you all so briefly on Sat night. Will have to organise a morning meet up one day!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well with the sheet I would either save it and make a cute dress for my little miss for next summer, of course with some of your fabulous Ric Rac on it.

    Or maybe a cool project bag, or maybe to line my new craft box that will be made out of a picnic basket.

    As for the Ric Rac, well your example on the wee dress looks fabulous, or maybe as decoration on my project bag, or even on a cute doll.

    It's too hard to say right away, because they would also look lovely just as they are :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ooh I'll have two entries please! Now I think I'd make my littlest girl a dress like you have made. They look so cute. And the ricrac I'd probably have to keep for a while to just admire it and think how clever you are at making it.
    Thanks for a wonderful giveaway Kate!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love the print I'd probably use it as part of a bag the ric rac would be fun trim for pants or jeans for my little miss

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ummm ... maybe pop the square into a quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Lovely to meet you on Sat night (and put a friendly face to the name!)
    Oh, the things I would do with some hand crocheted ric rac! But the square (love the idea of printing on patterned fabric!) would definately be a ballooned top for my little one for summer, matched with apple green bloomers. Lovely! Of course I'm a follower.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hooray for a Giveaway! I would have to make a cushion cover with ric-rac trim so that it could be used everyday and it would remind me of your lovely comments to my humble blog :-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. A dress or a bag, may be some pants? For the gals. Lots of things I could make. Love the trim.

    ReplyDelete
  19. It would have to be a dress just like the one you made (I have no imagination!). I'm a follower...please be me, please be me!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh how divine! First thing that has popped into my head is that I would take that tree and sew it into some saddle bags for my vintage Schwinn cruiser bicycle. She is the loveliest shade of green and it would so suit her. The ric rac has so many potential uses but, I'm leaning towards a little gathering bag for the smallish one.
    Thanks for the chance to win something so nice.

    No, you're not paranoid, I am indeed following you.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi Kate. Great giveaway! I do love your ric rac and I think I would be tempted to turn it into some jewellery for me. I love the colours and can just see it adorning my wrist and neck or maybe gathering a bit of it up into a brooch. The tree printed fabric would be turned into a bag for me too. After the kids clothing week challenge I am feeling very selfish when it comes to sewing! And yes I already follow your gorgeous blog.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Don't count me as an entry, but I think that ricrac is really lovely. I'm going to have to find a pattern to make some of my own! You chose some great colours.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh Kate the purple ric rac is begging to finish the neckline of a dress in my UFO box. I think once I had them in my hands and absorbed the texture some other ideas would flow. Crochet ric rac would be a great textural addition to cards too!
    I'm a follower :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ok I am joining you in the giveaway day..And of course I follow you :)......

    As far as creations, I would have to take a cue from you and make Sophie a little something with this fabric and ricrac...Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. The vintage screen printed linen would look wonderful as a pillow cover and the ric rac would be super cute trim for a pillow case or doily! Thanks for the chance!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you Kate for a beautiful give away, truly divine and just so special with your homely touch. I think I would love to use the ric rac to create little flowers with a matching button or bead in the centre and turn them into either a hair accessory for my gorgeous little girl, or use them as a feature embellishment on an article of clothing, even on a little brooch clip as a funky piece of jewellery. Likewise they would make a great appliqué feature on little tops (with fabric yoyos etc.) Endless ideas.

    So many options for the fabric, a feature panel on a taggie blanket to be loved and cherished by a young child, a gorgeous cushion panel to match my décor’, a journal cover which could feature the embellished ric rac flowers, a divine apron panel with added ruffle bottom and beautiful ties to wear in my country style kitchen.
    To see the fabric in real life would bring the greatest inspiration for its’ true destiny.

    I’m also a follower J Wish me luck J

    ReplyDelete
  27. YAY! I have been dying to get my hands on that tree print! And that fabric is to die for! I think I would either make some sort of a gorgeous patchwork table cloth or runner (we are in desperate need and then the print and fabric would always be on display) or I would make a little mini dress for my bub to be with the ruffles and all. Thanks for the chance! xo m.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I already follow your great blog and am a fan of your prints! I would probably use the fabric and crochet trim on a cushion - my house is in serious need of new cushions xx

    ReplyDelete
  29. PS. I am already a follower- and you can tell how badly I want to win by the fact that I am mentioning this to get two entries... LOL. xo m.

    ReplyDelete
  30. How could I not enter this giveaway!! I love the little tunic you made, so I'd have trouble trying not to replicate it, but uber goober needs a treasure bag to sling over her shoulder as she's taken to wandering around the house with whatever she can find - the bath toy bag, paper bags as big as she is, shopping bags I'm yet to put away...the list goes on! It would be rather fun to make a purpose built one out of your tree!

    I'm pretty sure I'm a follower! I hope you're having a pleasant day. xx

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'd have to say the vintage fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love that ric rac, I wish I could do that!
    I'd edge something for Tallulah, but first I'd hoard and hoard it!
    The sheet is gorgeous, she has a tunic out of that fabric too.
    Maybe a shirt...I love soft old sheets, I had this print as a kid.
    Maybe a skirt for me...thinking, thinking.
    Of course I follow your inspiring blog. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would make a bag/tote for my mother in law with it all! I would use the screen print and ric-rac in the one project... or I would make a pillow or a pin cushion or... there are lots of thoughts in this brain! :)

    email: krystal.zschech@gmail.com

    AND I AM a follower!

    ReplyDelete
  34. oooh. i want in on this!
    I just love this fabric & think it would make an awesome skirt, dress, or tunic for one of my littles. Thanks, Kate for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Kate, I love your tree screen prints and I love that green fabric. I think it would find a place on the front of my favourite dark green skirt right over the large stain that has been preventing me from wearing it. As for the ric rac, Eloise has a pair of lovely apple green pants that need embellishing, and I love these colours together.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think it would make a lovely tote bag with purple ric rac. Speaking of tote bags, I'm giving one away! Don't you just love Giveaway Day?!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love that the sheet is green so I can craft something up for my boys. Probably some sort of library tote. The crochet ric rac would probably be seen hanging in our playroom with some handmade something hanging from it making into a lovely garland.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Is one allowed to enter even if they don't have a blog of their very own? I do follow your blog and it's one of my favourites.
    In case I can enter I'd better explain my plan for your lovely prize. I'm in the middle of making a skirt for me and need some ric rac for the hem base, not on the outside, but on the inside with the curvy bits poking out. I would use the screen printed tree sheet fabric for the front half of a top for a friends little girl.
    I hope I'm allowed to enter. nicp42@live.com.au

  39. I think i would make a skirt! Love the vintage sheet!

    ReplyDelete
  40. i definitely see a similar shaped top for my 11 yo in that ace fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh hard decision. I think I would make a toy bag for all the little wooden doll house people or maybe a cushion for my daughetr's room.
    thanks for the swell giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would make a tank top like you did or a skirt. Oo That rikrak are adorable.

    Thanks for your giveaway!!!:)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh and i'm also a follower of your blog on google reader:)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would be making that gorgeous fabric into a panel on a black linen skirt for myself!! And the trim would probably be hoarded and brought out occasionally to look at then when the exact right project came along it would be lovingly stitched on :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. and now I'm following too :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow, I'm deeply impressed!

  55. Hmmm, I suppose telling you that I would pay you to make me one of your fabulous original designs for moi would be out of the question then...?

    Bugger.

    I think ruffle pants might be the way to go then, if I had to make them myself, I'm yet to break out any of the patterns from 'Sewing Clothes Kids Love' (yet to iron on the interfacing stuff...), what better to start out on than a pair of fabbo pants using a unique print from Foxs lane?! (Seriously, I ask you... what better..?!)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Of course I follow your blog, girl!
    As for the fabric, a bag (for me)
    And the ricrac? Too gorgeous to use straight away; I'd just stash it and covet it for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  57. The green fabric with print is amazing. I love green and would love to make the front of a market-bag to bring my knitting around with me. And I love green and purple together, so it would need a bit of purple ric rac too :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. woah...they are unreal!
    definitley make myself a skirt with that AWESOME ricrac - how in the world did you do that?? are you addicted?!!

    Feel free to head over to my giveaways too

  59. Summer is approaching here (UK) so I would make a summer skirt for my little girl and add the ric rac around the hem and maybe add some pockets with a bit more ric rac on them too.

    PS. I follow you on my reader. I grew up in Victoria so enjoy your photos of 'home'.

    ReplyDelete

  61. That gorgeous ric rac is going straight around the edge of a vintage chenille skirt!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Wow - never realised you could crochet your own ric rac! they would be fun to decorate skirts - and I think the fabric would make a perfect cushion for our "book nook".
    Thanks for the giveaway - and the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Oh goodness Kate you are lovely, I can't imagine that anything I would do with either would be up to your amazing creations.
    I think I would use the ric rac as an edging or trim on a llittle dress for a bear.
    xo

    ReplyDelete
  64. Oooh crocheted ric rac - yum!
    I'd use the print in something for me I think (forget the kids!), it could be the panel in the new skirt I plan to make for me.
    And I would use the ricrac to trim some skirts for the girls - thy ove the 'frilly' bits as they say.

    PS - lovely to meet you on Saturday night, sorry the dark hair threw you!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oh and I am a follower of course on bloglines.

  68. I'm entering all these giveaways for my friend Kali, who lives in Tennessee and was affected by the devastating floods they had there. She lost about 78% of her things including all of her craft items, her sketchbooks spanning the years and all her poetry from the last 30 years. She's pretty sad about loosing all her pretties as you can imagine, so I'm hoping I'll win a few of these giveaways and she'll get a lovely surprise present in the mail LOL!!

  78. Um, the same thing you made. That shirt is very cute. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  79. How lovely, I think the piece of fabric should be seen as a whole, so with that in mind I looked at the measurements and have decided it will make a gorgeous cushion, I would use the little bit thats spare to make 3 large fabric buttons as its closure, and with the lovely crocheted ric rac, I would hope to incorporate this in the seam around the edge,so it doesn't get lost in the fabric, and then I'm hoping theres still some ric rac left to incorporate into a brooch.
    I only found you last night, I absolutely love your blog, and sat there reading virtually all of it!
    So it will come as no surprise to you I'm now a follower...

    ReplyDelete
  83. I would make a pillow cover with the print. It has to be displayed! and not sure exactly about the ric-rac but I'm sure it would find a use with one project or another - perhaps on a quilt

  86. What a great giveaway Kate! I might sew a top for one of the girly girls. Or maybe something simpler, like a bag or a cushion. That lovely ric rac would embelish the cushion or bag!!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I would make a tote or a pillow for my bed! Yes a pillow and some ricrac would go to a towel for next summer (we are starting winter here) and some other for a little girl's dress and the rest for my pillow!

    ReplyDelete
  93. You MADE that ric rac? I love it!

    I would use all three together on a little white onesie or skirt, for a Dockers-mad friend who is expecting a little girl in 3 months time. The sheet? That would be for my own little girl, a lovely litle skirt!

  108. Wow - that ricrac is exactly what I need to finish the edges of a tablecloth that I am hand stamping for my in laws! Perfect!
    And the fabric with tree, I. Love. It. I think I might use that to make a book cover... definitely using it for me and not the kids, though! :)

  111. I would make a lunch bag out of the fabric with a new pattern I have :)Since I will be working in the city a tree would be a nice reminder that the word still has trees (even if I cant eat under them on the weekdays)

  121. The possibilities may be endless, but I'd so just copy you exactly. That dress/top is just DARLING.

    ReplyDelete
  122. The printed fabric is great by itself. It'd look great in a big embroidery hoop.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  123. Hmm...the fabric definitely with some other tree quilt fabric I won from the fat quarter swap last month! The ric rac I would have to think about!

  126. I love the colors and would probably make it into a pillow. I know, not very crazy, but I need some neat, modern/vintage pillows to spruce up my house!

  133. I'm thinking that screenprint tree should be on a throw pillow, and the ric rac? embellish something I'm sure.

  134. I love the idea of a little top. I might use it for the bodice of a dress for my daughter. So cute.

    ReplyDelete
  135. The rick rack might look nice at the edge of a skirt.

  136. cool idea! i think a nice picnic blanket with a pocket for books, etc embellished with the ric rac would be great. thanks for the chance to win :)

    ReplyDelete
  137. That is fabulous. Every time I see someone screenprint to make something their own, I am reminded all over again how much I love it.

    I would make a reversible cross back no button pinafore with it for my three year old. Long enough to be a dress now and a top next year.

    I love your blog - this is the first time I've been by, but not the last.

    ReplyDelete
  138. I'd make a baby dress or top.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Great ideas! First thing that came to mind is trim on a summer top, or since I enjoy making purses and wallets, well you know where that is going :)

    Thank you!

  144. HI Kate, I hope you get lots of nice visitors who hang around and find out just how nice you and your blog are! I have admired your ric rac for a long time- so you expect your winner to actually use it- not just admire it hey. Big ask! Well, because I am in the process of making my crafty space nice I think I would put it on a cushion for in there- although, I would also like it as a trim on a skirt for me. The printed sheet- well it could be a feature in the quilt I am 'gunna' make using vintage sheets. Gee, you'll be reading these comments for a while- there are loads!

    ReplyDelete
  145. I would use the screen printed fabric in a bag or throw so that lots of people could admire it's beauty and simplicity!

    ReplyDelete
  146. handmade rick-rack? I had no idea! Would love to turn these treats into something fun for my girl. sarah@frogcreekcottage.com

    ReplyDelete
  147. Handmad ricrac! Wow! I see trim on a tunic pocket I think...

    ReplyDelete
  148. I would make a tote bag to highlight that pretty tree! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  149. I see a large carryall purse with the fabric. Not sure if ricrac would be enough to embellish it or if I would have to learn how to crochet my own.

    ReplyDelete
  150. so... how do you crochet ric rac? that is the question. I'll have to look into that. I might make a similar top for my girl, if I was to win!

    ReplyDelete
  151. The fabric would make a great pillow front!

    ReplyDelete
  152. great giveaway. i adore crochet trim! so hard to decide, i'm leaning toward handmade napkins?

    ReplyDelete
  153. Wow, lovely giveaway! I will use both to make ruffle pants for my princess. Tk u!

    ReplyDelete
  154. I love the ric rac and the sheet also. I am a beginner sewer and i would want to use either until my skills improve. So i guess i would look at them lovingly for a little while and dream.

  155. ooh I would make them into a patchwork quilted tote to carry around all of my favorite stuff in! I *love* your printed fabric piece!

    ReplyDelete
  156. I just stumbled across your blog, and what excellent timing! I love vintage sheets, I love ric rac, in short - I love your giveaway!

    As for what I would make - I'm not sure, but I have a total obsession with the idea of little girls dresses at the moment. I have never made one before, but I think this fabric would be ideal, and in 6months or so a dress will actually be quite useful for my plump little darling who will probably be walking around like a big ole person by then!

    ReplyDelete
  157. wow that dress is amazing!! how creative!

  159. Not very original, but I would make skirts for my little girls from the fabric and ric rac (I LOOOOVE ric rac).

  160. I think perhaps a cushion for my sewing room, just for me! Or a bag for my crochet projects so I can carry them with style. :)

  161. What an awesome screen print. The shirt is a clever idea, I am not sure I have any more clever than that. I like making fun little skirts for my daughter :) Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  162. wow Kate soooo many entries for you that's so wonderful, if my girls were little I would definately make a dress like yours but I think I would have to say it would make a lovely cushion I think and some of the ric rac would edge the cushion and the rest of the ric rac I would use in making bags or adding to necklines of plain tops

    ReplyDelete
  163. ps just letting you know I am following now xx

  164. wow lovely stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  167. LOVE the fabric Kate - what a treat! I would actually make a summer top for myself and supplement it with green fabric if there's not enough... the ric rac I would give to my crafty daughter and share the Fox Lane love :) fabulous giveaway - thank you! Kx

    p.s. I'm a follower - second entry, yes please!

    ReplyDelete
  168. Beautiful fabric and lovely tree print! I love green! I'm not sure what I would do with the fabric - make a dress for my daughter, bag for my self, use it in my vintage sheet quilt I have planned. And hand crocheted ric rac! I would save it for something special, just not sure what yet! Thanks for a great giveaway!

    PS. And yes I follow your wonderful blog!

  169. i would use the ric rac to adorn some of my crocheted hats, and the fabric to make a bag :-)

  171. I am so inspired by your creativeness. My baby girl is 19 but you give me incentive to want to make her something. She loves the instyle hat and scarves - so, I am thinking that if I win I will find a tutorial on the kind of hats she likes(reminds me of conductor's hats) and make her a hat out of the material and ric rac. Thank you for sharing your talent.

    ReplyDelete
  172. Okay, I'm a follower. I love the reversable lined winter jacket that you, yourself can't believe you made. :) Isn't great when God lets us be suprised by the talent He gives us! Super job. Your talent inspires me.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Love that sheet. I think I would either look for a matching solid and make a top, or turn it into a tote bag (probably not very inventive I know, but it would show off the pattern nicely!).

    ReplyDelete
  174. Hi There,

    i'm going to applique that onto a t-shirt!

    ReplyDelete
  175. Love the fabric and especially the ric rac! I would probably use it to trim an apron.

    ReplyDelete
  176. What would I make?.... maybe a dress each for my little ones or to get a longer use from it I could use it in the tent/den I'm planning on making for summer days in the garden or on the allotment.

    I'm also a follower - you inspire me to do more. I'm always wondering just how you manage to squeeze so much into your life? Do you have a magic formula - if so please share!

    ReplyDelete
  177. how darling! I am currently looking for some interesting backing fabric for quilts for my nephews and planning on piecing fabircs...your vintage fabric with tree would be so nice to use!
    thanks for achance.

    ReplyDelete
  178. I would use the fabric for either a small pillow or a doll quilt. The ric rac I would use to make barrettes with.

    ReplyDelete
  179. I've been wanting to make some clothes for my baby girl and that ric rac would be adorable on it!

    ReplyDelete
  180. A fabric note board, I think. So pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  181. oh what a darling dress. i hate to copy but i think i would use the goodies to make a similar dress

  182. I could see making a baby dress with the ric-rac. I think the tree would look nice framed.

    ReplyDelete
  183. I would put the fabric in a quilt and on my wall. I absolutely love it!. I might share the ric rac with my sister who uses ric rac more than me. Or I might keep it for myself. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  184. I would used the ric rack to add trim to a shirt I'm working on to my oldest. Any left over I would save :)

  186. I've been making these summer baby hats lately: http://tawnykw.blogspot.com/2010/05/how-to-laneys-emergency-summer-hat.html And your vintage square plus some ric rac would make an extra special one. Don't you think? :)

    ReplyDelete
  187. hmm, either a dress/top for my baby girl, or a bag, maybe...

    ReplyDelete
  188. Love the sheet! It's made even better by the printing on it. I would have to add it into my vintage sheet quilt. It would be a great addition. Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
