Swedish Linen Winners!



It's Saturday morning here in Sweden and I pulled the Sew Mama Sew winners just a little while ago.  I let the 5pm PST go by, because I was sleeping!  Here they are:

Both gals have interesting blogs too!

I'll be contacting them today and hopefully mailing their loot on Monday.

Thanks for stopping by during Sew Mama Sew's blog hop and I hope I see you again!

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway: Swedish Linen

 


It's giveaway time again!  I'm keeping it simple so you have a chance to look at all the cool stuff at the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Blog Hop, and maybe win too!  
I have two giveaway bundles of Swedish linen:

One yard bundle of coral and white linen,


and one yard bundle of blue and white linen.


That's half a yard of each color!
This stuff is fabulous for sewing up zippy bags, tea towels, and other Zakka inspired handiwork.  I love it!  It is not the finest grain, but a nice and airy medium weave.  Perfect for drying quickly.

Fruit and Tomatoes
Some Zakka style towels I've made with this linen.....


I've held these up so you can see the weave:
