Today I’m moseying over to San Antonio, TX, to visit with my old friend Linda Permann on her cute blog Lindamade. I’ve written about Linda before on Manhattan Craft Room when she visited me on her blog tour for her most recent book, Little Crochet. In addition to being a fabulous crocheter, Linda does many crafts – including sewing. We are definitely crafty soulmates when it comes to our shared love of multiple crafts! In her blog tour post today, Linda reviews Sewing in a Straight Line and even whips up her own One-Hour Skirt (which she says took her two hours to make, but I won’t hold it against her. *wink*)

So head on over to Lindamade to read Linda’s post, check out her skirt, and enter to win a copy of my book — as well as soak up all the fantastic crafty inspiration Linda has to share. Thanks for being part of my blog tour, Linda! xoxo

And now it’s super-duper giveaway time! Up for grabs today is a six-yard bundle of gorgeous Amy Butler Organic Soul fabric! Amy’s latest line is as beautiful as ever (that’s it, above), but produced on 100% organic fabric using low-impact dyes. It’s perfect for quilting, sewing home decor, fashion, or one of Amy’s amazing bag patterns or other designs, which you can find on Amy’s site. I’m a huge fan of Amy Butler designs and have been for years, so I’m thrilled to offer these fabrics for giveaway today!

To enter, leave a comment on this post and tell me what you’d like to make with these organic cotton fabrics. The winner will receive six one-yard cuts from the Amy Butler Organic Soul for Rowan line (fabric to be selected by the fine folks at Rowan; not necessarily the exact patterns shown above.) THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED; PLEASE SEE CURRENT POSTS FOR CURRENT GIVEAWAYS.

Special thanks to Westminster Fibers and Rowan for sponsoring this giveaway! And thanks to Amy Butler for being so fabulous!

  • Laura Martin

    Oh I LOVE Amy Butler prints. LOVE. I’d definitely make a top for myself…I’ve had this pattern bookmarked and think those fabrics would be lovely. I’d also make another apron most likely as a gift for my mom who saw mine and instantly said with pouty face “I waaant one” And I’m sure there’s much more I can come up with.

  • Amanda

    OH my LORD – I am crazy about these fabrics! I have been looking to recover some cushions and a chair – perhaps these could work?

Oh my gosh I am going to be spinning in circles with ideas for this amazing fabric! Thank you so much for such an amazing giveaway :)

  • Christine H

    These would be beautiful in your Sham pattern, or an A-line skirt, or a pillow cover for a couch, or …..

    My first thought is pillows to brighten up my living room, but if all the fabric matched so beautifully, I might get ambitious and try my first ever quilt wall hanging.

  • RivkaBelle

    Oh. How. Fun!

    Oh man…I’m not sure what I’d make, there are so many ideas bouncing around my head right now – maybe a quilt-ish something, maybe something to welcome one of the many babies that’re going to be joining my friends this year :)

  • Janet

    I love the colors! I would make new bed pillows and arrange them all over! or maybe even pillow cases! My bed needs a remake! :D My husband is on disability, so having something bright and cheery would do him good!

  • Renee G

    I might actually make something for me if I won! Oh, who am I kidding, it would probably all be made nto twirly skirts because they are my daughters favorite thing. :)

  • Juliette

    I think I would redo my office with throw pillows, a fabric bulletin board, photo frame matting and trim my curtains. Honestly, I think I could do it w/6 yards.

Now I’m hopping over to check out the two hour skirt and drool some more… cheers!

    I want to use these fabrics to line a hand-knitted swing coat’s two front facings and inner back neck, all of which will definitely be seen frequently.

I have been looking for fabric to make my “happy skirt”… a tiered skirt to wear in this horrendous heat that makes me think of cool spring days that herald the coming of summer… this fabric would be fabulous in that skirt and give me some relief from the 110 degree weather… I live in Oklahoma where we’re in a drought and for the month of July were officially the hottest place in the united states… HOT… please… let me make my happy skirt and get some relief from the heat…
