Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

I love Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day. It is so much fun to visit new blogs! It is a great way to make new friends and also a chance to win great giveaways. I keep thinking I will blog more but I am so busy reading other folk's blogs that I forget to post on my own. This week though has been a posting fest for me! So look around and see the little things I have been doing!

 I finally decide what my giveaway would be this spring...a Moda Scrap Bag! Never seen one? They are great. Here is the description from Moda:

These bags contain the leftovers from Modas production of layer cakes. Near the print plant, they were being discarded, until Moda swooped in and came up with a great way to save a scrap!

Each bag contains 1/2 pound or more of fabric in strips that vary from 2 to 4 in width. Each piece is 32 long. Each bag includes ONE beautifully color coordinated Fabric collection. Who Can resist


All fabric is 100% cotton


All you need to do to win is leave me a comment about what you will use these strips for.  I have had so much fun with the ones I have had, it will be interesting to see how others will use them!!!! If you want an extra chance, you can friend me or if you already are, tell me so in a second post.  I will ship internationally.

Don't forget to check out all the other great giveaways  from Sew Mama Sew. The giveaways start on Monday May 6th  and end on Friday May10th. Come on and join the fun!!!!

I will end my giveaway Friday night May 10th at 8 PM and randomly draw a winner at 9 PM. I will notify the winner by email so be sure that I have a way to reach you!
