This is the first time we've ever done a giveaway, but I am so so excited to share this with you! I teamed up with Lauren of LLadybird earlier this fall to create a custom fabric for her to sew something magical out of! We put our heads together to come up with a super versatile fabric that she could make into basically anything. We decided on my traditional medium weight cotton paired with a super textured, slightly heavier cotton for the weft. We settled on a solid color so the texture of the fabric could really shine.
11 lbs of cotton and all the blue dyes I had available and we had the perfect color blue. Since it's hand-dyed the color varies from side to side as well as having a few white spots that the dye didn't quite reach. It was pretty east to weave up because I was so excited to see the finished fabric. It is pretty much the most perfect 'almost worn-in' fabric that you want to wrap yourself in and never let go of :)
I gave the fabric to Lauren and she sewed it into the most beautiful swing dress- you can read all about it on her blog! In addition to some wonderful tips about sewing with handwovens, she is hosting a giveaway for 1 1/2 yards of the same fabric! The giveaway is open worldwide until December 21st, so head on over to her blog and tell us what you would make with the fabric in order to be entered to win!
Best of luck and I can't wait to hear all of your wonderful ideas!
