    What a dream to win this. For the 10 girls (1 daughter and 9 nieces) in my life, I would make them beautiful dresses and blouses, some lined in voile, and I would be in sewing heaven!

    NIght & Day = Heidi Organic Voile = some sort of summery tank top…. perhaps one of Jenny Gordy’s patterns. New Traditions = a fitted top like Magritte or a Franzi vest (modified to work as a top) Metro Living = a sporty duffle bag with lot’s of pockets.

    I would make lovely baby items and a matching dress for me and my baby! I’d also make a lovely jacket and maybe some clever pillows for my bed! So beautiful!

    I would make several new pieces for college and for a new summer wardrobe, and I’d probably make a pretty tote bag, or something like that for my mom (something Vera Bradley-esque). I mostly sew with thrifted sheets, so nice fabric would be really fun!

    Off the top of my head, I would say the Easy Breezy Wrap Skirt from the Sew Everything Workshop book, and some purses/other accessories :D

    I would make chair covers for my dining room chairs. There are so many uses; I made my wedding skirt out of Robert Kaufman.

    Maybe a 60’s style dress of the Metro Living, a sundress of the Organic voile and Night and Day, and a totebag of the New Traditions, or a matching purse and sundress (New Traditions), with an Organic voile shrug that ties in the front. Possibly, I might make a short kimono jacket of any of the three prints with the voile to be used for the collar part of the jacket. Then, I would use the leftovers as part of a crazy quilt for one of my daughters.

    Night and Day and New Traditions are for my dresses, the organic cotton is for my son and husband7s summer shirts, and Metro Living is for some bags and pouches!

    Wow! I love them. Would definitely make at least 1 of these prints into a kimono dress i want to make and use one of the other ones to make the obi sash. Mix up patterns a bit. I will also make a couple of large totes to use for groceries and library books.

    Beautiful! If I won the fabrics, I would make totes, totes and more totes of all shapes and sizes for all ages! Teachers would get them, aunts, friends, neighbors, coaches, etc….I’ll probably make a matching insert and iTouch holder…..

    I was just browsing the BurdaStyle article with all the resources for beginners. I think some of this fabric would be perfect for the Anda dress, or the A-line skirt. Or a hat. Or a bag. Stop me!

    I have a pattern for a carry-on bag that would be fabulous in either Night & Day or Metro Living, but I have the feeling Night & Day would be stashed for just the right thing; it’s gorgeous!
