Choose My AQUA Fabric

Quick update: I retook the pics because some people weren't seeing the aqua color in the third fabric, hopefully it's better now! :-)

So we're going to take a slight detour from the rainbow, and look at aqua fabrics today! Seeing as it's kind of in between green and blue, I thought it would be a good time. I have a ridiculous amount of aqua colored fabrics, apparently I'm drawn to the color. So I'm excited about this week's choices, can't wait to see which one y'all choose!

So, you know the drill, tell me which fabric you like best. 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:



Click on the image for a closer look! I've included a quarter to give you some sense of scale.

The first is a fun floral on an aqua background, the second is an aqua and white damask, and the third is an aqua damask print on a green background.

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

*Include an EMAIL ADDRESS where I can contact you should you win, (US residents only, sorry!). You can do this either by



  1. Making sure your email is available through your blogger profile. (See here for help with that)


  2. Leaving your email address in your comment.


  3. Emailing me at mllevaleur (at) hotmail (dot) com with your email address, subject line "Giveaway email"


  4. OR if I know you from a forum somewhere, leave your SCREEN NAME so I know who you are!

If I can't find a way to contact you, I'll just have to pick someone else, so make sure to do one of the above! :-)

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 Monday evening at midnight (central time). I'll update this post with the winner on Tuesday, 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!

Choose my fabric! :-)

UPDATE: Alright, so #1 it is! I already have some ideas for this one, so I'll get to work! Thanks all. :-)
