___________________________________________

It looks like I'm arriving fashionably late to the party. This week is Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day! There are hundreds of great giveaways going on from now until Friday May 25th.


I'm happy to participate for the first time! Since I love vintage sheet fabric so much, I have put together a rainbow scrap pack. There are 16 different prints of beautiful vintagey goodness. They are a variety of sizes, some smaller, some close to fat quarter size.  They weight just over 11oz.

To enter, please leave a comment below. I would love to hear what are your favorite colours in vintage sheets. Please make sure I have a way to reach you! I will close comments Saturday morning and pick a winner.

Thank you for visiting le petit cardinal rouge!
Good luck!
