  2. Hello Caroline
    Congratulation on 200 posts, what a milestone to have reached. I found your blog during Me Made may and have enjoyed following you so much, you have real artistic flair.
    If I won the giveaway I think I might make some summer tops with the smaller pieces, perhaps some contrasting bias binding edges made from the colourful scraps.
    The two metres of baby blue polka dot would make a lovely summer dress, do you think the teal fabric is enough for a long sleeved t-shirt made from the New Look pattern? There are so many exciting possibilities that I would be dreaming of ideas for ages!

    1. Thanks Rosemary - I have enjoyed following your blog during MMM too!
      I love the sound of your plans lots of nice ideas. I think the New Look top may fit into the teal fabric as its quite a wide fabric (although I think they recommend knit / stretch fabric for the top).

  3. Ha, I can never decide what to make with things until they are in my hands, and then (sometimes) inspiration strikes! So complete fail on this for me. Congrats on your 200th post, such a milestone!

  4. I am just getting back into sewing clothing, so these fabrics would make some lovely summer tops for me! Other pieces would be added to my current fabrics to make quilts and table runners...both for gifts and for my home! Congrats on 200 posts! duchick at gmail dot com

    1. Kathy, great to hear you are getting back into sewing. Quilts and runners sound like a great idea and the floral fabric would make a great summer top.

  5. 200 blog posts! Congratulations and what a lovely idea to share it with us by doing a giveaway. I've just seen that you're just like me a rower. You've have some beautiful giveaways. If I'm one of the lucky one I would love to have the baby blue cotton and make a lovely summer dress. info@sewingalacarte.nl

  6. What a nice idea Caroline! :) I feel like I need more skirts, so I'd probably make skirts :) the teal fabric and the one with the flowers look perfect for that :)

    1. Good idea to make some more skirts - always great to co-ordinate with me-made tops and cardigans. The floral fabric would make a lovely skirt but you would have to be very diligent with pattern placement as their is only one metre.

  7. How wonderful to stumble upon a sewing blog. I was inspired by a few podcasts to not only join in MMM but to replace my ready to wear clothes with handmade. A few skirts and dresses later I have cut out trousers and tops are next on the list. Your great prize would inject some piecing into the mix, and the larger sizes of fabric would become garments. I do need to hold fabric to feel what it wants to be.

  8. Big congratulations on your 200th post - yay!
    I have a shirt dress pattern calling out for a polka dot fabric, and a pattern for one of those super fashionable off the shoulder top which I need to make soon before the trend finishes! Plus bags of course, I can't stop making bags to give as gifts so my friends can save their 5p's.
