Hemingway Design fabric giveaway

After running a whole WEEK of daily giveaways for One Week, One Pattern, I vowed to take a bit of a break from giveaways for a while. All was going swimmingly until I was offered the chance to give away some Hemingway Design fabric. I fell hard for this lovely mid-century inspired collection as soon as I clapped eyes on it, so how could I deny my readers the opportunity of owning a metre? The answer was, I couldn't, so it's giveaway time!

The giveaway came about when Tracy from Trixie Lixie contacted me after reading my post on the fabrics. As well as a giveaway for my readers, she very kindly offered to let me choose fabric from the collection to make something fabulous with. Oh joy of joys! Trixie Lixie stocks the full collection, which actually makes the job of choosing one even harder.  In the end I went with one of my original favourites - Duck Egg Grid - which will be swiftly turned into a shirt dress come spring.



The full collection comprises 29 designs, some of which I hadn't even seen when I wrote my first post. Here's just a taster of some of the colours and patterns used:










I can tell you first hand that the fabric is a lovely, soft cotton, which I think will be perfect for dressmaking. The colours and patterns have a really authentic vintage feel too, they'd be great made up into a fifties inspired shirt dress or a cute blouse. Or even cushions to add a fifties flavour to your couch!

To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is look at the Hemingway Design Collection on the Trixie Lixie website and leave  a comment on this post telling me which one is your favourite. The winner will receive one metre of Hemingway Design fabric of their choice. The giveaway is open internationally and closes at midnight GMT on Monday 10th November. Please make sure you leave your email address if it's not linked to your Blogger profile so I can contact you if you're the winner. 

A big thank you to Trixie Lixie for the giveaway and good luck everybody! x

  2. Wow great giveaway!! After never really wearing green I recently discovered it actually suits me so the Hemingway Designs Green Pink Tulips fabric would be perfect!

  3. Very cool fabric, and thanks for the chance to win a metre of it. I think my favourite is Light Green Fleck fabric, although it's a hard decision to make.

  4. it's a tough choice! they are all so lovely (as the hours i have spent lusting over them in john lewis will testify!). i like duck egg twigs.

  15. Interesting looking through these... When we renovated the bathroom in my very old Queenslander, a few years ago, the wall coverings we found behind the mounted mirror were incredibly similar to "light green fleck" except in the softest shade of purple. I think I might have to acquire a few metres either way, for sentimental reasons.
