Sew Bettie Contest

Contest.

All of you DIYers should listen up because Hip Hostess has another April contest that is perfect for you!

Sew Bettie is a Chicago-based textile design company that specializes in limited-edition prints sold by the fat quarter (18"x21")...the ideal size for small craft projects. Their cheeky designs are quirky, cool and certainly not to be forgotten. These happen to be some of my faves:

And Sew Bettie is offering one of our readers a free fat quarter of their choice! To enter, go to the Sew Bettie site and pick out your favorite designs. Then leave us a comment telling us what you like and what fun DIY project you have in mind (hint: there are some great ideas on the SB site...like the fab lampshade below). The contest ends on April 30th and the winner will be announced May 1st. Good luck!

I love love love the Bulldog Fabric!! I'd probably do sew a cute little hankerchief for my fiance or make him a small pillow. All for his love of bulldogs!

The luxe Moroccan fabric is divine! I would use that to make a lamp shade to add a splash of color to my new all white office.

It's the retro pig fabric for me! My Mom has collected pigs for years and just celebrated her 80th birthday~it would be perfect to make something extra for her!

I have a brand new handbag pattern that calls for a fat quarter! The chain link fence fabric would be absolutely perfect for a new summer bag!

Our neighborhood is undergoing a gnome invasion- they keeep popping up everywhere! I'd love to have a tribute to them in our home!

I'd probably make a pillow or wrap a canvas in the fabric and hang it in the living room. Too cute!

Oh dear... literally, I love the faux taxidermy deer, but also leaning towards the fantastic french bulldog... or the mustache beard combo! Multiples would be great for photo back drops or the quilt guest book we're considering.

I have some really ugly couch pillows that I would love to cover with the Tribal Irish fabric!

For me, it would have to be the moustache fabric! I would make a tie out of it. :D

Retro piggie is super cute! I'd make little potholders for all of my bridesmaids... maybe with their initials monogrammed on the corner!

I think the mustache fabric is hysterical! And the fabric with the little pig. What great choices.

Oh definitely the Mustache fabric! I would use it to make some gifts for our groomsmen... the groom would love it too!

I love the Avant-Guard gingham fabric. I would use it to make a pillow or a small set of makeup bags.

Delaney said...

Love the bicycle fabric - my husband is an obsessed cyclist - I would make a great little flag for my daughter to wave at races when he pedals by!

Love said...

Definitely the pigs! My fiance grew up on a pig farm, and it would be a hoot if he had a piggie bowtie to go with his tux. And yes, he'd wear it proudly!

What a fun giveaway! I love anything beachy, starfish, colors of the sea... you name it! I would love to make new barstool seat covers, and maybe some pillows for fun!

I'd use the mustache fabric as background for a framed photo of my fianc├ę and me — then put a photo of us when he has a beard in it. =)
