These are gorgeous and I am so going to have to buy some. If i won, I would choose the 2 different colourways for haul it, plus the first of the quirky hedgehogs and the co-ordinating stripe. I would then have to purchase more so I can turn them into 3 different quilts for my children.

Oh I hate being number 1 poster it is never drawn lol...

Thank you for your lovely giveaway.

Funky Fabrix said...

You are number 3 so good luck!

cartwrightc said...

I have cartooned hedgehogs since I was little (not sure why?) these fabrics are great :D thinking.....about.....what to .....craft ?

megsie said...

the hedgehog's are very cute aren't they! I'd use them for contrast on kiddies clothes and bodies for my softies, the stripes would be fantastic for stripey legs. The red/black haul it would be much loved by my little fella as pockets on a cool pair of denim pants

kook said...

These fabrics are so cute and unique. I love all of them.

I'd use the first hedgehog design one in an MCN, the owl and the blue coloured Haul- it as wetbags and attempt a skirt out of the second hedgehog design and if all of those failed id try pillowcases and drawstring bags.

clare's craftroom said...

Oh the owls are gorgeous but maybe the hedgehogs would be a bit different ! I'd be happy to win any of them !

Jodie said...

I love the hedgehog fabrics. I see some very cute bags using these!

Sarah said...

I love the hedgehogs, owls and stripes. They would make a great quilt for my friends baby.

Quilary said...

I'm definitely turning the owl and hedgehog fabrics into cute little wallets, all with that fantastic stripe as the lining. Thanks for the giveaway

bibby said...

Wow! I love them all but I would be making the following:
Red haul it - daycare bag
Hedgehog and apples - little girls cookery apron
Stripy - cover a large blank book for journaling\Hedgehog and hearts - cover an individual cup cake box...........
that is when I have finished looking and drooling over them!

ittybittyandpretty said...

Brooke said...

Oooh! I love Michael Miller fabrics - so funky! I'd love to win some of these. PS. LOVE your shop in Mitchelton - wish I could buy some of everything! :)

tepid duck said...

So beautiful, I would like a piece of everyone. I can just picture the quilt I could make with this.

Miss Amy said...

Hmm would I like to win some fabric... as If I even need to think about it! LOVING the hedghog fabric by the way. Very nice! The trucks are also cool though... Fabric fabric fabric... it is the constant distraction of my mind. ;)

Cook Clean Craft said...

I like the red Haul It the most, then the owls, then it's a tie between the blue Haul It and the aqua Hedgehogs.

Not sure what I'd do with it just yet, but baby boys (and girls for that matter!) are popping up all over the place with my friends, so probably appliqued onesies and matching bibs and other baby stuff.

La TempĂȘte said...

Ooooh. I love both the Haul It prints and also the hedgehogs and owls! Super cute.

stepfie said...

the fabric would be a HOOT HOOT to sew with. :-)

Clare said...

lovely fabrics!!! My son keeps pestering me to make something for him instead of the usual pink themed projects for my daughter! He would be so pleased if we won this xx

Kylie said...

What a great prize:)

I would have to choose Haul it (the blue one x2) and it would be turned into shorts for my little man and the scraps would be put to use as pockets and cuffs on pair of pants.

And then I would have to say the owls and hedgehogs and turn it into a pencil case and lunch bag for my little miss for school next year.

planettreasures said...

the hedgehog print is so cute!
I love the mixed hedgehogs, single hedgehogs, owls and the stripes.
I'd use them on BoosTees tshirts and maybe some new brooches.

Wee Sweeties said...

I am often being asked to make things for boys..who are often overlooked in the handmade dept..these would be perfect!!

Elizabeth said...

I like the four fabrics posted from the Hedgehog line. I would use them as part of an I-spy quilt. Thank you for the giveaway.

Kylie said...

Love them all! With the Haul It, both red and blue I would make a couple of Pencil/crayon rolls, and the Owl x 2 for a dress for my little miss! Can't with to purchase soem of these! Or The Owl print and Blue Hedgehog prints for appliques, pockets, trims etc. Too hard to choose :)

Sarah-Jo said...

it! it wins hand down in the too cute stakes and its great to see some really cool boy fabric such a rarity!

if I won I would definitely use some to make cushion covers for my son and perhaps some cute coin purses xxx

Doreen said...

Love them all. If I won, I would buy more and make a single bed quilt for my great nephew. Love your work..and your 'tweets'

Sparrow Bee said...

oh but i love them all - but i do like the trucks, so nice to see great boys farbics! Hmm now what would i make?? bunting? crayon wallets?

Tara said...

I am a follower of your blog! My four favourite are the fabrics from the Hedgehog Group of fabric.

Thank you for holding this give away. :)

My Little Mod said...

It has to be the Haul It design for me! I've just created some wall art for my daughter (covering canvas with fabrics in a row to create a storyboard above her bed) using Juicy Jungle and was on the look out for something for my transport crazy son - I've just found it! After that it would be some shorts and a quilt. He would love it!!!

toadstooldots said...

too cute, especially the owl and hedgehogs.
I would probably make a wrap skirt for my DD and the leftover I would frame and hang over my sewing machine.

teemoo designs said...

oh those hedgehog fabrics are divine. i can definately see our little Samuel wearing some funky trousers for winter using that fabric.

the owls are too cute as well. would make some lovely baby booties and a matching bib.

hrmmmm so many possibilities!!

Cass said...

I'd get one each of the Hedgehog Group fabrics, and I'd also buy some Love Birds Olive. Too cute!!!

I've just started sewing, so I would make simple-ish projects - a crayon roll for my daughter and a library bag for my son. :)

Marie-Andrée said...

OOohh! I love the hedgehog fabrics.
They are all gorgeous!

Steph Bond @ Bondville said...

Love them all, but would get the 4 hedgehog fabrics. The stripe for nursery curtains, and the patterned for dancing dresses for my 2 beautiful girls.

Kimberley said...

As a new "stay at home mum" I was searching for something to keep my hands from being idle other than changing nappies and settling my beautiful bubs. i felt my mind slowly turning to much but then something wonderful happened. I discovered that there are wonderful fabrics out there and lots of things you can do with them. I went from going stir crazy to always planning my next project and budgeting to afford that extra half metre of fabric!
I love the haul it fabric. It is on my wish list for adding something funky to my boys room. Maybe a few canvas prints? Maybe a quilt?? Oh oh where should I start!!!

Shari said...

I've just started embellishing my little girl's t-shirts with pretty fabrics. I think some of these would make great t'shirts for boys! I need to branch out into boys things!
I'd choose the red vehicles, the owls, the stripes and I'm unsure whivch hedgehogs!lol Probably the bright ones!

GG said...

i love the owls and the stripes. i've been making baby change mats and these would be PERFECT!!! just the right size too... no need for cutting :)

Big Fish Little Cheese said...

The bottom four - hedgehogs and owls! They are begging to be made into beautiful gathered pinafore dresses!!!

Sue said...

I should pick the owl 'cos yesterday I found the sad little body of an owl near my henhouse. I cried for him :(
But I just love those hedgehogs. They need to be turned into a tote so I can carry them everywhere with me.

Sue said...

Whats with everyone loving owls and hedgehogs? I've just had another look and think I love the aqua trucks. How cool are they for li'l boy gear. I just bought a kids backpack pattern and the trucks would be perfect.

Oh Gorgeous Baby said...

I love the blue Haul It material. I have a baby boy due in 5weeks and I would use it to make him a fabric bag that I could store some of his toys in.

alyce said...

I LOVE the Hedgehog Fabrics!! Love the little Hedgehogs the most, I'd make Taggies,a purse and a few har ties out of them :)

alyce said...

I love the Hedgehog fabric!! LOVE the little hedgehogs th most! I'd make taggie, a purse and a few hair ties out of the fabric!!

Sarah said...

If I had to choose four fabrics I'd choose the two hedgehog ones, the stripes and the owls. I'd make my girls some lovely skirts or dresses.

CurlyPops said...

The funky coloured hedgehogs with the co-ordinating stripe are definitely my fave. I also love the prints that are suitable for little boys. It's so hard to find anything for boys!

Deb - Two Cheeky Monkeys said...

These are such great fabrics! The four I like the best are the aqua haul it up, the two hedgehog group fabrics with the hedgehogs and the stripes. The hedgehog fabrics would be great for skirt for my girls or I could use all of them to sew bags for them too.

:) Deb.

Gem said...

I ♥♥♥ the hedgehog fabric and would made some cute bags out of them. But I also love the MM and would love to make my son a library bag or something cute for his room!

Kimminita said...

The best giveaway EVER! I would like to take a shot at the red trucks, the stripes, the owls and the cute hedgehogs on blue. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Kimminita said...

The best giveaway EVER! I will take a shot at the red truck to fancy up a shirt for my nephew, the stripes and owls to make my niece something nice and the hedgehogs on blue (cute) for myself. But not sure yet what to make first as my wish list is looooong.

kraftykathryn said...

Having 3 boys, I would love to make something out of the Haul It range - so cute! I also love the Hedgehog and the owl fabrics. I can think of so many things to do with them!

qotfu said...

Wow that Haul It fabric is fabulous! My 2 year old is obsessed with all forms of transport and I think would detail a pants and shirt combo with one of them (probably pockets and cuffs for pants and applique for top) AND I've been meaning to make him one of these http://homemadebyjill.blogspot.com/2009/12/cozy-car-caddy-tutorial.html. So the other Haul it would be fab for the outside.
Other fabrics I love are the hedgehog and apples and the stripes, I think they could be a top for a friends 2 year old girl.

Fingers crossed!

Naomi said...

I love those little owlies. I would make some toddler clutches.

Toni D said...

I love the hedgehog fabrics, can think of so many applications. Would love to make a bag, a pencil roll and even a dress for my little girl out of these. Need to place an order soon of these and some of your beautiful organic fabrics.

cherri said...

ohhh - the owls and hedgehogs are my favourites - very nice! Fingers crossed!

h. said...

love the new Michael Miller's!!

In the process of designing a spring quilt for my 4yo cousin (boy), so the Michael Miller fabric would be perfect!

Thanks, hx

Bec said...

Ooooo! Loving all the hedgehogs group fabrics!!
I would make them into a little quilt for my daughters cot with plain fabrics.
Gorgeous fabrics!!

bekahdu said...

I looove the blue hedgehogs and the red/black trucks - well both of the trucks really! as well as the stripes and the owls. I have 3 boys so I think the trucks would be put to good use as cuffs, applique features on some clothes. Tic - Tac - Toe set backings or car set backings. Definately purses or little bags for the owls and hedgehogs.

Mel said...

Your owl fabrics have done it for me & I'd co-ordinate a laptop/messenger bag - just for me to use - what a "hoot" that would be :)

poppyjaxon said...

i would say that as my boys miss out on everything i make, i would pick both the haul it fabrics, then the owls and stripes.

now with what id make. for son 1 would make a new library bag, son 2 a nappy pouch and for the only daughter would make a skirt with the owls and strips...

good luck to all, and an early congrats to the winner!!
oh and thank you to funky fabrix!

Sarah said...

I adore the hedgehog ones, especially the first one. SOOOOO cute!

Kim said...

Oh i love them all, it is hard to find gorgeous kids prints that are unique.
I would use them on nappies, how much fun would a hedgehog nappy be?
And gosh i love the fire trucks too, would make for some happy kiddos at nappy change time!

berniebabe said...

I have been eyeing those cute prints off for ages.

The Webbs said...

I love the whole hedgehog collection! I just got the best surprise ever from my mum, she bought me my first ever sewing machine, a beautiful Janome! So I would love to use the hedgehog fabrics to make my older sister a taggie blanket for her 3rd baby which is due in November, after 12 years she is going to do it all over again, hats off to her!

GemmaJoy said...

I love the first 2 and the hedgehog and the stripes. I may love them all. I think I may have even seen your eames chairs on ebay... I was really impressed with those!!

Little Snuggle Monkey said...

OOOHHH I LOVE the "haul it" fabrics
and the bottom two hedgehog fabrics!
I would love to make them into some cute clutches, or maybe some soft blocks :) Or maybe I would turn the haul its into some cute pocket and cuffs for some cute jeans for my little man <3 x

al.camerons said...

I love the transport & hedgehog prints. I am only new to sewing & have only just acquired my first sewing machine and I am now inspired to want to make anything & everything for our first baby who is 4 months old.

Clarissa said...

Hmmm...my favourite are the two car/vehicle ones, the one with the big hedgehogs (in diffrent colours) and the striped one. I would make something for my nephew..and maybe some sort of bag based thing

Kazza said...

The hedgehog fabrics are devine, although I do love the stripe ones aswell. Oh,the things of what I would create with these fabrics are endless

Cindy said...

I love the hedge hog ones and the red cars one is gorgeous too - one of my favourite lines at the moment.

Shellgel said...

i love these fabrics! the owl and hedgehogs are so cute! Id make a skirt or top or dress for my daughter.

Lesley said...

I'd use the two boys cars prints to make my gorgeous little man, some awesome pants and then I'd use the hedgehog fabrics to make a cute and funky purse for my little girl.

Lynette said...

I'd choose both colours of the Haul It and make my little guy a cute little library bag and toy bag. I also love the colourful spikey hedgehogs and the owls which I would use to make taggies for my daughter and some new bubs in my playgroup.

Sally said...

Definitely the two haul it fabrics, I'd use one for shorts and an applique top for my wee boy and the other in a cushion or toy holder for his room. I'd choose the hedgehogs and stripes and use them in a bunting for my niece.
