It's here again -- Sew Mama Sew's biannual Giveaway Day! I love this opportunity to get to know a few new faces in the online sewing community while getting my name in the ring for some fantastic prizes. If you're a newcomer to Fabric Mutt, welcome to my little corner of the blogging universe. Above is a mosaic of my projects pulled from the past six months -- so many great memories here. If you stop by my blog often, this is the kind of stuff you'll see. I'm currently working on a book for Stash Books, so there's a lot going on behind the scenes these days, but I'll have lots more to share with you in the coming year. 2013 has been amazing, and I know that 2014 is going to be just as great!


I know you have hundreds of other sites to visit before the day is through, so let's get to the giveaway. Normally I love to pull some fabric from my stash to share with one of you, but between rising shipping costs and packages going missing, I'm taking no chances. This week's winner gets a $25 online gift certificate to one of my favorite fabric shops: Fabricworm. International entries are welcome, and the winner will be chosen randomly and announced here this Friday (12/13) after 5pm. Please be sure that you leave an email address in your comment if you're a no-reply blogger so that I can get in touch with you if you've won! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post answering this question: what's your favorite sewing book? I usually love to answer my readers' comments on the blog, but due to the high volume of remarks left on giveaway posts I probably won't have the chance to answer everyone this time. Come back again with a comment on another post, though, and I'll be happy to chat with you!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

    Well recently I've sewn from Sew Clothes Kids Love by Nancy Langdon&Sabine Pollehn as well as the Amy Butler Little Stitches for Little Ones.

  146. Sadly, I don't have a favorite. I learned how to sew just a few years ago and there is so much info online and so many great individual patterns. I learned how to sew first from a class and second from the oliver + s patterns. They have done more for advancing my sewing than anything!

    ReplyDelete
  161. I only have two sewing books, so picking a favorite is pretty hard, as one is a basic how to sew guide, and the other is a project book. If I'm looking for inspiration, the one-yard wonder book I have is pretty great, if I'm looking for how do I do this properly, the other book wins.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Angela Walters free motion quilting book. Thanks for the great giveaway! I love that shop!

  183. My favourite book is Sewing Clothes Kids Love. So far I've made about 6 different patterns out of that book and will continue to make them as long as my kids like. They are so cute and well designed and the kids look absolutely adorable in everything I make from this book.
