Choose My RED Fabric

Alright, here it is! The first Choose My Fabric post for my Great Fabric Destash Challenge.

As I explained here, I want to hear from you which of the fabrics below you think I should use up! Which one is your favorite? Whichever fabric you help me pick (I'll choose whichever gets the most votes), I'm going to have to use it ALL up...that means NO leftover scraps like I usually have. Most of what I make will likely end up for sale in my Etsy shop.

Once I've used it all up, I'll choose something I made with the chosen fabric to give away! Here are this week's fabric choices, all fabrics that are red and natural/cream colored.


Click on the image for a closer look!

The first is a deep red damask on a natural background, of which I have about 2 yards. The second is a berry fabric on a cream background, I have about 1/2 a yard of this. The third is a very large stripe made up of the print you see on a natural background, it's just asking to be made into some kind of border fabric! I have about 2 yards of this one.

All you need to do to enter the giveaway is leave a comment with your VOTE on which fabric I should use up this week or which one is your favorite, and an EMAIL ADDRESS where I can contact you. (US residents only, sorry!)

**Please make sure I can find your email through your blog profile (see here for instructions), otherwise please leave your email address in the comments along with your vote...you can use this format [mllevaleur at hotmail dot com] if you don't want to have it show up as a link. If you get chosen and I don't have a way to contact you, I may have to just pick again. Thanks!**

I'll choose the winner randomly from among those who voted for the winning fabric, since I'd hate to send someone an item made from a fabric they don't love!

Please submit your vote before Saturday evening at midnight (central time). I'll update this post with the winner on Sunday, and then get to work! Check back at the latest on Friday to see what I've made, and of course to see who has won the giveaway and what they won!

I'm so excited!! Ready? Set? Go!!

UPDATE: And the winning fabric IS #2, the berry fabric...by ONE vote, phew, that was close! :-) I'll use it up by Friday, and announce the winner of the giveaway when I post what I've made. Thanks for your votes, time for me to get to work!

Love the second one with the berries. I'd also love to see what you do with a small amount. I have lots of little pieces that I love too much to throw away, but am at a loss as to what to do with them.

I love number 1, although the berry print is also very cute.
I think the universe is telling me I need to learn how to sew, with all the crafty blogs I find myself reading. ;)
