Choose My RED, WHITE, and BLUE Fabric

I'd originally planned to do purple this week, finishing out the rainbow, and then do patriotic colors next week in honor of the 4th of July. But, seeing as we'll be getting ready to go on vacation next week I figured I just go ahead and do them now, and then we'll have a little break for a couple weeks while I'm on vacation. I may still do some blog posts, but the Great Fabric Destash Challenge series will have to wait until I get back home to all my fabrics. :-)

Oh! Also, after several requests I've decided to go ahead and open up the voting to my Canadian friends to the north, since shipping costs are fairly similar. Sorry to all my friends overseas, wish I had the money to open it worldwide!

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 the leftover of a fabric I used to create a border on a custom skirt I'm still in the process of finishing, there's not a ton left of it, less than a yard. The second is a great big kind of flowery check pattern, so fun! I have a good 3 yards of this so I have some big plans if this one is chosen. The third medallion-like print is a little bit of a cheat because that's all I could find in my stash for this theme! It does have red, white, and blue but it also has some gold in it, I think I have about a yard.

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 and Canada 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 Sunday evening at midnight (central time). I'll update this post with the winning fabric on Monday, 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: The people have spoken, #2 it is! With 3 yards to use up completely, I have my work cut out for me! I may be a little later this week with all the fabric to use up in the midst of packing for the trip, so I'll shoot for Saturday. Thanks for voting!
