In Fall For Cotton

Fall For Cotton – Giveaway Time!

If you completed your Fall For Cotton project by the deadline, then Tasha and I would like to reward you with a chance to win one of four awesome prizes: Two here, and two on Tasha’s blog!



Prize Pack One consists of a vintage mail order pattern, six pink vintage buttons, and two yards of Pellon tracing paper. The pattern is complete and appeared to be in factory folds before I checked to make sure all the pieces were there. It’s a super cute, VERY simple dress (just 2 pieces and the facings!) from the late 50’s or 60’s. The size is large but would be very simple to scale down for any size. The pattern pieces are unprinted, but you can follow my tutorial if you’re not familiar with how to trace/use unprinted patterns.



Prize Pack Two contains a Butterick Reproduction pattern for 1954 apron styles (now out of print!), 1 and 1/8th yards of this Alexander Henry cotton fabric, 2 packets of red ric rac totaling 5 yards, and one large scrap for some patch pockets. That’s one seriously cute apron ready to be made!



1.) You must have completed your Fall For Cotton project and uploaded your photos by the deadline**.

2.) You must leave ONE comment below including a valid email address, your first name, and your Flickr username.

3.) You must leave your comment before midnight on Saturday, October 5th PST

Be sure to enter Tasha’s giveaways as well!!

(There will only be one winner per each of the 4 giveaways, drawn at random, and you cannot win twice. This giveaway is open to all qualified FFC participants worldwide.)

Good Luck!!


**If you’re reading this and you haven’t finished your project and uploaded your photos, then you’ve missed the deadline 🙁 But, if you’re rreeeaallllyy close to finishing and would like to still be included in the wrap-up parade video then please get your photos in before the 6th!

    This was my first sew along, and I really enjoyed seeing everyone’s projects. I wish I had done more than one project and had had more time to go through the Flickr photos, but I definitely feel excited to do another sew along, and next time will make more time to get to know others participating.
