Have you heard about the “Waverize It!” challenge going on at Jo-ann Fabric’s Facebook Page right now?
It’s national sewing month AND Waverly Fabrics 90th anniversary! Jo-ann’s and Waverly are giving you a chance to win 30 yards of Waverly fabric and a $250 Jo-ann’s gift card (pretty sweet, huh?!). That’s enough to Waverize your entire house! All you need to do to enter is sew a unique project using Waverly fabric and upload a photo of the finished project to the contest site.
You can find more details by clicking on the photo below.
Jo-ann’s is also hosting a blogger contest and I was contacted to participate! I was sent 2 yards of Waverly fabric and asked to sew up a project with it. I always love a new project and a contest, so I jumped at the chance.
Now, I will always strive to be honest with my readers and I will let you know that I was less than satisfied with the fabric they chose to send me.
I received this floral print in my surprise package. I think anyone who reads my blog will know that this is just not my style. I do love SO many Waverly prints and I had my fingers crossed that I would receive one of these beautiful prints:
I was pondering what to make, when my daughter started oohing and ahhing over the fabric and asked if it was for her. We were also headed on a trip and I thought it would be a great idea for her to have a small suitcase to carry her toys in.
So, now she has her very own quilted, Waverized, suitcase! I used the Sidekick Mini Suitcase pattern from Sew Fearless as a guide, but I decided to add a front pocket on the outside and a zip pocket on the inside for smaller items.
I love the bubble-gum pink piping and that kelly green double zipper. The pattern was easy to follow. I would say it is about the same level of difficulty as Amy Butler’s Weekender bag, so if you’ve made one, you can make the other!
The inside is big enough for all her accessories.
And the suitcase is still small enough for her to tote around.
She let me shoot one photo before running off to fill her bag!
Now it’s your turn!
You have until September 22nd to get sewing and get Waverized.
