{Fabric Friday} last 3 creative competition entries…

Ok fabric enthusiasts, it’s another chance to be wowed by people’s creativity. Here are the last 3 entries in 5 Bundle Creative Competition. It’s been so cool to see that the creations are as unique as the places that they came from. It’s all about the lime, blue, & pink stacks today… 
The lime stack of fabric was shipped to Dawn (pop-i-cok). How cheerful & charming is this little bunny? I love the stitched details throughout & cool play with pattern. I’m sure this fellow will make some kiddo thrilled. Nice work Dawn! 
Heather jumped out of her comfort zone with her fabric of blues. I love her attitude & her lovely, modern twist on the “stained glass applique” method of quilting. You can just sense her enthusiasm from looking at her piece. Great job to you too Heather!  
The pink stack of fabric went to Amy who embraced this challenge by not only creating a beautiful gift set of stationary, but also created a new crafting space in her house to work on this project. Her love of handwritten letters inspired this creation along with the special & creative ladies in her life. Certainly a letter on one of these cards would be cherished.  Well done Amy! 

See what I mean? These are three very different, but equally special treasures don’t you think? If you missed the first 2 wonderful entries, go check them out here. Again, I have to say- I’m so impressed. Everyone was so excited & gracious about being included in this challenge. I really appreciate the effort everyone put forth. I know time isn’t easy to find. Be sure to come back on Fabric Friday for the voting. You get to decide who wins another fabric stash & a $20 klt:works gift card. What would you do if a stash of fabric was given to you?

Wow- I’m blown away from the response to this fabric remnant giveaway! I think Sayer is at a loss for words too. I only wish I could send everyone a stash.

The winner is “Make Mine Mid-Century! Yay- can’t wait to see what you do with this stash- you will send in a picture, right?  Just make sure I have your address & I will replace the names on paper in the tote currently, with fabric & ship if off to you right away. Congratulations!


Thanks to all of you for participating! I look forward to sharing what is up my sleeve – I think you’ll like it.  Hope you have a great weekend. Happy Fabric Friday!

{Fabric Friday} KLT:fabric bundles & giveaway…

Those of you that have been following my Fabric Fridays for the last year, won’t be surprised to learn that my fabric stash is taking over my studio right now. Boy do I love fabric & I have piles dating back to the late 1990’s. The lightbulb finally went off after numerous inquires from customers about buying my fabric to match their klt:mobiles & plush. Part of my new year resolution was to simply & pare down. So, in the spirit of making more space in my studio, I’m now creating & selling fabric bundles from my  klt:fabric stash in my Etsy Shop.

As I was frantically going through my fabric, cutting & bundling, I came up with a fun idea (I think)- a Fabric Friday Giveaway! I thought I would put together some fabric remnants in this KLT owl tote as my giveaway prize. I figured that those of you that are crafty & creative would need an extra tote. So, I will gradually add fabric to this tote over the next week – and announce a winner next Fabric Friday. Sound fun?

{Everyday Inspiration} more Marimekko…

January was good to my ever growing stack of Marimekko fabric. I actually might call January 2011, the textile month because I went a little bonkers with finding gorgeous fabrics internationally. Not to mention I brushed up on my textile/design history and learned about a lot of amazing textile designers. Most of my fabric purchases came from Finland or the UK with a combination of cool vintage & new finds that I’m really excited about. So what am I going to do with all of this fabric you ask? Oh, oodles & oodles… but lets’ start with some new slug plushies, a kitty, … and ol’ Phil the Groundhogs cousin- Mr. Squirrel.

I find making plush out of Marimekko fabric so inspiring- my hands can’t keep up with my ideas. The painter in me loves to play with different color combinations in search of making the colors sing.  While I realize this isn’t Friday – and this could be classified as a Fabric Friday post, I felt it belonged in my Everyday Inspiration category as well. Besides, who couldn’t use a jolt of gorgeous color on a Wednesday? What would you do if this was your stack of fabric?
