The Big Spring Contest from Offset Warehouse!

Offset Warehouse has just launched the Big Spring Contest, and guess what…? I’m one of the blogger judges!


As one of the judges, I’ve been asked to come up with a theme and judge all the entrants for that theme. I get to pick one lucky winner who will then have three weeks to make their design and get the chance to win a goodie bag of prizes (details further down this post)!

My theme is Pets, or animals if you prefer. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post with your idea, design or pattern along with the Offset Warehouse fabric you’d make it with by Sunday 16th March.

To get started, have a browse on Offset Warehouse’s site and see what fabric inspires you! 

Have a browse of the other themes for other chances to win. Here are the bloggers participating and the themes you can choose from:

Not only will a winner from each blog win the fabric of their choice for their project, but the grand prize winner will also get the following bundle…

PRIZE GreenTulip-Cork-&-Denim-Bowl-WEB These bambu Adjust-A-Bowls are the ultimate ‘hold everything’ bowl and Green Tulip are generously giving one of each – a hemp organic denim one and a cork one. Fold ’em down, or pop ’em up, use them to store your sewing bits and bobs, pop it in the kitchen for fruit, vegetables or bread, or why not in the bathroom for bottles? Hemp has eight times the tensile strength and four times the durability of other natural fibers, and is mildew resistant and anti-microbial. Cork is renewable and biodegradable, and cork forests are essential to preventing soil erosion, maintaining water resources and storing CO2.

PRIZE buckle-classic-basket This gorgeous leather trim buckle basket is handmade in Morocco with palm leaves. It is lightweight, strong and free standing, great for shopping, the beach, picnics, gym, nappy bag and much more! The leather handles are incredibly soft and long enough to go over your shoulder and tuck under your arm. With the added bonus of a leather strap and buckle to keep everything safe – it’ll be your new best friend!
