Fabrics and Craft Supplies Giveaway!

Oh wow...I'm getting so excited by all these giveaways this week!  I'm hosting a different giveaway every day this week, Monday to Friday, so do pop back for more!

Today, I'm pleased to be teaming up with Abakhan who are offering 3 vouchers, effectively tripling your chances of winning!  Each voucher is for £20 and if you are one of the lucky winners you can spend your voucher on whatever you like from their website.

strawberry fabric from Abakhan
I have plans for this fabric ...
it might be cold right now but I'm thinking summer picnics!

Abakhan have long been one of my favourite fabric shops (I love that I'm close enough for a special trip every so often to their North Wales branch) but they don't just sell fabrics.  There's a whole lot in the way of craft supplies too: if knitting, felting, crochet, beading or jewellery-making just happens to be your thing, you'll probably find something you love!

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning a £20 voucher is this:

Leave a comment on this post, telling me what you would make if you won.

It's that simple!

What are you waiting for?  Pop over to Abakhan for a browse and some inspiration, and pop back here to leave your comment.

Winners will be drawn Thursday 31st January at noon UK time and announced on this blog soon afterwards.

This particular giveaway is only open to people in the UK.  Check here for yesterday's giveaway if you missed it - and don't forget to pop back tomorrow for another!

Isn't their spotty fleece fab?? I'd like to make a spotty fleeecy patchwork throw to snuggle under during this chilly weather.

Shmum said...

I would make a super warm onesy with some fleecy warm fabric for my little girl. Sharon domesticgoddess76@hotmail.com

I love having a look around Abakhan. I want to have a go at making some summer tops (fingers crossed for sun). Thanks for the week of giveaways.

I'm experimenting with paper and fabric patchwork on hand-made cards so the voucher would go on supplies. Abakahn is always inspiring to visit and I always spend too much!

I want to make a snuggly comfy dog bed for ny gorgeous 4 month old miniature dachshund. I know exactly the shape and colours I want. Then I am going to make her a winter coat as all pet shop ready made ones are for little dogs with short backs! So I need something a little longer! Abakahn here I come !!

claireabellemakes.com said...

This year I want to make my first quilt so I think I would start with some sections for that!

Unknown said...

Quilts and then some more quilts!

CHRISTMAS PIE CRAFTS said...

It would have to be something relevant to the current very chilly weather for me: a gorgeous draft excluder, perhaps decorated with sequins for a bit of added glamour.

say it said...

If I won I think I might get some beads and make a necklace for me. I love their glass cross pendants. And they have some lovely buttons.

Crafty Helen said...

My daughter has been nagging me to knit her a cowl, so it would have to be some lovely chunky wool. Thanks X

Natalie said...

I really am determined to make a bag so I would but some beautiful fabric to make a tote bag. Thank you for the giveaways - my fingers are crossed! x

Sue said...

I'm banned from buying anything new at the moment so winning a voucher would mean that I HAD to shop wouldn't it?! I'd love to make a patchwork bag - my sewing machine has been sitting idle for far too long!! Sue x

Chrysalis said...

So pretty - I'm hoping to revamp my kitchen later in the year, and a table cloth and napkins in this fabric would go down a treat with the gentle candy pink and blue I'm planning to use. Thanks for chance of entering again today xxx

Clare Lewis said...

I would get my mummy some fabric so she can make me something and stock up on some of their gorgeous beads, I do love sparkly things :)

Anonymous said...

Hi if I won,I would love some of the fantastic strawberry material and I would make myself a lovely vintage style apron , I'm fed up with my practical boring apron !

thanks for the chance to win
Helen

knitnrun4sanity said...

As I am intending to follow the sew and knit along on ros made me this year I would spend it on buying supplies for this. That way I would have one less excuse to not join in!
Thanks Wendy for another great giveaway :)

Sewing Directory said...

So glad to see an Abakhan voucher giveaway I can acutally enter ;-) If I won I would buy some of their lovely fleece to make microwave wheat cushions to keep us warm in these cold evenings.

If there was enough I'd also make gloves and scarf for my son.

Stephen @ Soy of the North said...

I've seen some great colourful stripy and spotty cottons on their website. Those would be perfect for a new set of place mats for my dining table. If there's enough fabric left I would try to make a patchwork cushion cover to go on my rocking chair.

Ginx Craft said...

Although very tempted by the knitting yarns, I would probably buy some of the felt and tools if I won. I love some of the felting I see online, and keep meaning to have a try at it myself.

Louise said...

I would make a lovely quilted runner for my new bed.

LesleyW said...

Thank you for the chance to win this giveaway. If I won I would use the voucher towards fabrics for my latest project, which is a quilt and accessories for my first grandchild (due this summer!).

Amys Crafty Shenanigans said...

Hmmm - I think I would make a cushion for my sewing chair as it is rather wooden and hard after a few hours sewing!! Great giveaway!!!

Swallow Barn said...

ooh - how wonderful. I would definitely be after a quilt pack - there are some gorgeous packs of fat quarters. And I love the tiny apple buttons. So I'd probably make some patchwork cushions that fasten with apple buttons! That said, it would be very easy to be tempted by their fabulous yarn...

Ailsa Cordner said...

I would stock up on my jewellery making supplies, maybe some buttons for button jewellery!!!

kazbar02 said...

What a wonderful cheery fabric. This would look wonderful used in matching kitchen accessories, TPot cover, quilted placemats and matching curtains.

Free Spirit Designs said...

ooooh... i think i might make tea cosies! :)

threads 'n' shreds said...

wow so many lovely goodies - you can never have enough craft goodies!! I would make a crochet granny cushion, with some lovely cotton yarn, but then the Zpaghetti yarn did catch my eye. But also i've just started learning needle felting, so the coloured wool tops would be fab as i'd like to make a felted heart and flower garland. Phew i think it would be a big decision :)

Simmi said...

Ohhh I would get some furry fabric to make up some new teddy designs that I have floating about in my head :-)

Samantha Newson said...

I would make something out of the pink cow fabric for my sister's first baby due in June - unless it's a boy then I'd make us some new curtains!

Louise (Elsie May and Bertha) said...

I'd use the strawberry fabric in your post to make a frilly apron with a matching pot holder :-)

cjplus4 said...

I would make some curtains for my youngest's bedroom, she has the ones I made for her big bro and keeps telling me she needs new pink ones!!

Picto said...

Oohhhh the shower proof fabric looks good, I'm looking to make some totes and book bags so that would be ideal.

Lynn Hardy said...

Thanks for the chance to win this lovely prize. My daughter bought me a book for Christmas with patterns for 25 Animal Hats. Some of them are knitted, some crocheted and others are sewn from fleecy fabric. If I won I'd like to buy the wool to knit her a hat and also some fleece to make the cute fish hat for my 1 year old grandson. I'd be spoilt for choice in Abakhan though - I can get lost in their Manchester shop for hours!

SherryG. said...

I would make myself a shawl. I knit for everyone else and forget me.....

almondrock said...

Ooh great giveaway. I'd probably make a triangle quilt or a slinky crepe dress! :-)

patchworkfairy said...

I love Abakhan and I can get to the Birkenhead one in 20 minutes! (which I do quite often!) I would enjoy buying some more expensive fabric and making a new cover for my recent charity shop chair purchase. I think it would be a patchwork cover! Wonderful week of giveaways Wendy!

Pickle Lily said...

What a fab giveaway - thank-you Wendy. I would choose dome of that lovely butterfly fabric you showed us, and then more fabric and wool, and let the creative juices flow! Jo x

judith67 said...

i need some new cushion covers

Kay Eyles said...

Thank you for a great giveaway. I would use the fabric to make lots of hexagons to make up into bags, also some fabric baskets.

Highland Monkey's said...

OOh what would I make...think it would be another quilt. I love that strawberry fabric, reminds me of a dress that I made my daughter 20odd years ago.

Elizabeth Poole said...

I'm make a handbag! Been thinking of a new design for a while now :)

It isn't easy being frugal said...

If I won of make my little girls a dress each ., something unique that's not following the trends of the high street

pembrokeshire lass said...

I just love their Valentine fabrics and ribbons!! If I won I would probably get some of those as I have decided to make more of Valentines day this year as I was in hospital over Christmas and didn't even get to put up a tree! Great giveaways. Thank you! Joan

Nati said...

I am working on a beedroom remake so i will buy fabric for it! Thanks for the chance to win.

Linda Rumsey said...

I'd fill a few holes in my yarn stash with some lovely summer yarn. The snow finally melted today and I'm looking forward to Spring!

Jenni Stobbs said...

BUTTONS... you can NEVER have too many buttons. I could use them in so many projects - bags, cushions and more!

mandicraft said...

I need to bring spring into my living room, so some nice bright cushion covers would be my priority.

Cazzyline said...

My friend is getting married in a few months and is really excited about button bouquets and handmade purses, so I would surprise her with a hamper of sundries for that. In her signature purple, of course!

SewLittleToSay said...

I really want to make a scrappy quilt, but don't have enough scraps. If I were lucky and won, I think I'd cheat by buying lots of skinny quarters of their quilting cottons.

Julie said...

Oooh, this is well-timed! I have my eye on a fabric from their shop already, pink with tiny hearts and spots, for the backing of a baby quilt I'm working on! Thanks for the chance to win!

foxynitta said...

I've just bought my first proper sewing pattern for a skirt, so Abakhan's wide selection of print cottons is looking very tempting!

terrorstar said...

I love abakhan and I'm into quilting. At the moment I want to make a union jack quilted table topper in red white and pale blue
