This Giveaway in now Closed.
Today is turning into a super busy day, so I will announce the winners tomorrow (June 11th.) The winners will also be notified by e-mail.
The very first time I saw the fabric line Spring Bloom designed by Amanda Caronia for Windham Fabrics, there was one particular fabric that caught my eye. The blooms reminded me of peacock feathers and I knew that it would be perfect to fussy cut to make a thimble pip.
I decided then and there that I was going wait until it was released and even if I had to order it on-line and pay international shipping I was going to have some of it. Well as regular readers know, the fabric came to me in the most fun way possible.
I won a fat quarter bundle with one each of the entire Spring Bloom line. You can read all about that here.
I was so excited to be able to play with all that beautiful fabric and I have a big project in the works using them but first I had to make that thimble pip! Well two actually because as you can see from the photo above there is also a pink color way of the same design.
Here’s the blue one:
Each thimble pip is lined with the matching blender fabric from the Spring Bloom line.
After making the thimble pips I embroidered around each with 2 strands of embroidery floss using a herringbone stitch. And then to give them a bit of bling, I added teardrop shaped crystals to the “eyes” of the peacock feathers.
Now if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I already have a small collection of thimble pips. You can find my tutorial for how to make them here.
Since I have so many, I’ve decided to give these two away.
The rules are simple:
1. Leave a comment on this blog post telling which Thimble Pip you’d like to win before midnight EDT June 9th. Two winners will be drawn by random number and I will announce the names on June 10th. (If both have chosen the same colored thimble pip, the first name drawn will receive their choice and the second name drawn will receive the other pip.)
2. For a second optional entry, leave a comment telling me how you follow Super Mom – No Cape!
