Giveaway: Outside Oslo fabric yardage

Greetings, everyone. To kick off this post-Labor Day week, how about a little fabric giveaway? No, scratch that. How about a big fabric giveaway, totaling nearly $500? With not one, but ten winners!

The Needle Shop, manufacturer of the latest textile line I designed, would like to put some Outside Oslo fabric into your hands. This retro-inspired collection is 54" wide, home dec-weight cotton canvas. It's perfect for making bags, purses, curtains, tablecloths, pillows, furniture, you name it. (Or begging your mom to make those items for you; that's usually what I do. It's much easier.)

Here are a few of the awesome projects from the Outside Oslo Flickr group, where everyone is invited to add photos of their finished work:

Check out the box pouches from Belly of a Whale, or Little Ticket's sweet Ingrid dress. And the jacket by Dashasel is amazing! Inspired yet?

The prizes
Ten randomly selected winners will receive their choice of any three yards of fabric from the Outside Oslo collection. You can get continuous yardage of one design, or mix and match prints (pieces must be at least 1/2 yard). Choose from six different designs in two colorways, Dawn and Dusk. For a two-page PDF that shows the choices, click here.

Above is the Dawn colorway, and below is the Dusk colorway.

How to enter
To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post. Be sure to include a link, email address, or other way of contacting you. And if you've got a favorite fabric store or a manufacturer of cool products that might be interested in some Oslo, mention that, too. The Needle Shop would be happy to send them a bit of info about the line.

The giveaway closes Friday, Sept. 9 at midnight CT. Winners will be randomly drawn, contacted by The Needle Shop, and announced here the following week. International readers are welcome to enter, too.

If you're a fan of The Needle Shop, follow them on Facebook or Twitter. And if you need to purchase more Outside Oslo for yourself, visit their online shop any time. Good luck, everyone!

Update: Giveaway is now closed. Ten lucky winners have been contacted. Congratulations to Jane, Melissa, Anne-Laure, Lamina, Jessica, Katie, Mette, Mandi, Andrea, and Danielle!

For folks who didn't win but would like to grab some Oslo, check out the list of stockists.
