Fusible Fleece Giveaway

A while back, I made this pillow using Etchings Wovens and a fusible fleece which I bought from  Julia at Gone to Earth.  I have since made more pillows with this fleece which I can't show you because they're Xmas presents but I love it so much and it makes pillow making so easy and the resultant pillow is very cosy and soft if you're in the mood for a Sunday afternoon nap which I often am.


I asked Julia is she might give some of this fusible fleece away and she has agreed to do so.  So, here's a quick Thanksgiving / Black Friday giveaway of 2 metres of this wonderful fleece for you to try your hand at making pillows (or bags or other items) with.  Just one quick easy comment to be in with a chance of winning.  Just let me know what you would make with it and Mr Random will draw a winner on Sunday, probably just after my afternoon nap.

  1. ooo - enter me please! It would encourage me to finally get round to making those 3 cushions for the living room sofas (and we could stop fighting over the 2 I have finished!)

  2. Cushions would be fantastic, as I'm trying to use up some of my scraps! I've heard of fusible fleece before, but I'm not totally clear on how it works...

  3. I'm a total Gone to Earth fan, they are super helpful.

  6. I used fusible fleece for the pillow I made in the recent Brit Quilt Swap after your suggestion. It was a dream to hand quilt the design in perle and you've converted me. So now I want to make more pillows. If there was any left over then it would almost certainly be used in bag making!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Cushions and some little pouches with the scraps.

    Thanks Karen

  11. I think I would be a complete copycat and make a stars and stripes pillow too, but mine would go and live in the USA with my little sister! Or perhaps a stars and stripes one for me and a Union flag one for her...
