skyturtle said...

This is wonderful. I would make holiday table sets for me, my friends and family. And some rice filled holiday ornaments. Maybe even some Christmasy sleeping masks for sleeping in :)

I would love to make a tree skirt from these beautiful prints!

absitpos said...

Congratulations on the 1,000 page views. I am a new blogger, and fairly new to sewing as well. What to do with Holiday Happy...I have so many ideas but it is hard to choose just one! I think I would make a table runner so I could really show off this amazing fabric. I loved the stocking idea from a previous comment so scraps would have to be used in a stocking too.

Brighton Breezy said...

1000! Yay! - what a lovely giveaway treat! I'm not usually overkeen on Christmas fabric, but this is just yummy.

I'm currently obsessing about 3D patchwork geometric shapes (see blog!) so I think I would make it into baubles for all my colleagues and friends ... oh dear, now I'm drooling ...

Erica said...

Congratulations on 1000 hits! How exciting! I just downloaded a cool mod pillow pattern which would look great in these fabrics!

The Pink Fawn said...

I'd like to make cute Christmas buntings for family & friends!

giddy99 said...

I would make "patchwork" Christmas stockings of them! With embroidered names... sigh..

The Pink Fawn said...

Kimberly said...

The first thing I'd make would be a new Christmas/winter table runner for my dining room table, the second thing I'd make would be a new Christmas/winter table runner for my coffee table, the third thing I'd make would be a new Christmas/winter table runner for my side table... you get the idea!

Thanks for a chance at an awesome giveaway!

giddy99 said...

I think would make a little Christmas mat for under the tree...or a table runner...or a few gift bags like the Happy Zombie posted today (but not nearly as cute as hers)...or I may actually try to work it into a cute throw quilt...I just don't know but I love it so! :)

Ursula said...

What a great giveaway! I love the Holiday Happy line. I would make a table topper for my mom and me of course!

Hi Emma! I'm stopping in from Happy Zombie's blog to say hi. This fabric is wonderful!!!

Johanna said...

How sweet of you to give something this beautiful away! I would make a christmas quilt since I never had one before and it just doesn't feel christmasy enough without one :)

mamabug said...

I would love to make a quilt with my math group at the school I work at. Many of the kids are 9, 10, and 11 and I think that age kids would love to help with a quilt and then we could raffle it to raise money for school supplies. Yes that would be what I would do . Thank you k.bugbee@att.net

Skooks said...

I'd love to make a quilt with it . . . ooh . . . or a little tree skirt for my sewing room tree . . . or some little bags for gifts . . . oh goodness. The possibilities are endless. :)
