BDSI Giveaway Winners!

Thanks to everyone who joined in the #BDSI fun last weekend. I got sidetracked teaching Sam how to use her new sewing machine:

She is already hooked, and spent a lot of fun hours going through my scrap bins and practicing sewing straight seams. We went to JoAnn Fabrics on Saturday morning so she could pick out her own fabric to make her first project, a pillowcase.

Can you tell what her favorite color is?


I managed to get some sewing of my own done, and made an infinity scarf using Anna Maria Horner velveteen and satin fabrics:

Have you made one of these scarves before? They're so simple - sewing 2 rectangles, approx. 70-72 inches long together. I started out using AMH's tutorial, but modified the width of my fabric (I made mine a narrower 13.5 in vs. 18 in.) so it wouldn't be so full around the neck, wrapped twice.

So without further delay...the WINNERS of the #BDSI giveaways are:

#4: WeezyRose: you won the 2 hand dyed fat quarters!!! (Giveaway #1)
#21: AJ (The Quilting Pot Podcast): you won the 1 yard of hand dyed fabric (Giveaway #2)

Please check your email inbox (or a recent comment on your blog WeezyRose!) so we can arrange shipping of your prize. Thanks again to everyone who entered and joined in on the BDSI fun on Twitter.

  5. Sam, you go girl. Put that pedal to the metal and sew on! Always a joy to see another "sista" join the world of creating! I bought both DIL's Janome machines for Christmas and both are finishing up 1st quilts. Shhh, don't tell but Sam I like purple best too. Happy New Year. shelly beth...who learned to sew on at the age of 6 on a old singer with one stitch and a knee lever.
