Choose my TOILE Fabric

So as I mentioned before, this is going to be the final month of my destash challenge. We're done with colors and color combos, and we're going to be looking at groupings of prints from now until the end. First up is one of my long time favorites, toile! I have a crazy love for toile that I simply can't explain, so naturally I have a ton of it in many different colors. It was hard enough just choosing 3 to show here!

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 actually a very large toile on a lovely linen fabric. The second is a brown asian toile on a creamy yellow background (the colors didn't show up all the great, sorry!) And the third is pink on pink toile, I love the girliness of this one! It's what I have on my wall covering a cork board in my sewing room. :-) Not much left of it, though.

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 Saturday evening at midnight (central time). I'll update this post with the winning fabric 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!

Choose my fabric! :-)

UPDATE: Looks like #1 is our winner! Check back later this week to see what I've made and who has won. :-)

...tough decision again. I am kind of in between #1 and #2. I love the color of #1 and the pattern of #2. Since it is a toile fabric, I decided to pick #1.

Thanks for the chance and have a nice weekend!
