Japanese Fabric Giveaway! Over

Congrats to Tiffaney! #57
I'll have to tally up & see what was
the most popular print today.
I'm curious.
My favorite today is hula girl.


How is this for Japanese fabric?
It's darling,
even better in person.
There are glittery sparkles
on the fabric.
We've put together a fun collection
of Japanese linen fabrics.
Kicking it off is....
Little Red Riding Hood.

Then there is:
Cinderella,
Mermaid
Monkeys
Matryoshka dolls
Hula Girls
Frog Prince
Tinkerbell
Apples
Pinocchio
Emperor's New Clothes
and Peter Pan & Captain Hook

Available on etsy in
5" charm squares
or
10" squares & fat quarters.

A great way to get
a little bit
of it all!

Today's giveaway is a
half yard
(or 2 fat quarters)
of any of the Japanese prints.

To enter the drawing,
leave a comment about which one's your favorite.
If you have a good hula story,
include that too :-).

Random drawing later tonight.

  1. I love all of this. Gets me in the Aloha spirit! Difficult to pick a favorite, but I think the Hula girls are so very cute. I love this sort of fabric and am dreaming up creative ideas to use it.

  2. I love the hula Aloha girls. The first one up top. I'm not much of a hula dancer, but I do love sewing and arts and crafts!

  3. I love the Matryoshka dolls - been designing some in cross stitch, so the fabric would work great with them. Never hula'ed, but would a hula hoop work? I fell trying to teach my daughter (then 5 now 29) and I broke my arm. I was the talk of the kindergarten class gossip.

  14. Loooooove the hula girls - had a holiday in Hawaii two years ago on our way home to NZ after visiting our daughter in Canada to celebrate her 21st birthday. Was such a special time to join in a hula demonstration although my rather unco-ordinated hips didn't move as fluidly as the lovely Hawaiaan girls!!!! Ciao

    Sorry I've no hula story... well, just thinking of my friend who used to live in Hawaii and showed me a photo of his garden. He had placed a bathtub, under a mango tree and he said he could see the ocean from the bath... Would that count as a hula story??? LOL

    I am planning a "tropical island" quilt so I would probably take the hula girls.

  27. I love the Cinderella! My daughter has always been my little Cinderella. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  28. The frog prince is my favourite! The frog is HUGE compared to the princess, kissing that frog would be scary, a little frog, not so much! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I can already think of things to do with the Little Red Riding Hood and Matroyska dolls fabrics! Thanks for the giveaway... the closest thing to a hula story is a memory from elementary school where we put on a "luau" during 4th grade!

  53. i love little red riding hood and peter pan! i do have a hula story...a couple of years ago, my little family (me, my husband, and my 6 month old) went to hawaii with my parents and my brother and his wife. we went to a luau at a hotel, and they told my mom, my sister in law and myself that we won a prize. the prize was that we had to hula along with about 10 other people in front of everyone at the luau. i'm not a dancer, and i'm not a fan of being in front of crowds, so i'm pretty sure my face was red THE ENTIRE TIME. but it's a good memory. :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. No hula story I am afraid. but the girls are cute. as are the fairy stories like red riding hood and sleeping beauty. love the apples.. I think they would be great in combination!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ilove the hula girls and russian dolls, and oh the little rede riding hood is just the cutest! Thank you for a chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Sadly no funny hula story- but planning firmly to move to Hawaii in the next few years!
    I have been eyeing up the Little Red Riding Hood with blue trees for some time (extremely difficult to find where I live) so it would be wonderful to try that (or the Emperor's New Clothes, which made me grin)
    If I do get lucky, may I please pay for the postage as I am in the UK :) It would be only fair, seeing as you are treating us to some fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  57. little red, of course :) just too cute!

  58. Little red is by far my favorite, I have been stalking this fabric for a while and would love to win it!

    Fun hula story:
    When I was a youth my mom worked the young women at our church and coordinated some really fun activities for us. One time we had a cultural day and each room at the church was from a different place around the world. Oddly enough they picked Hawaii for one of those places and the missionaries, 2 19 year old boys, dressed up in hula skirts over their suits and taught us young girls to do a hula dance. It was hilarious and so much fun :) We have some pretty good pictures too... im sure that created some fun pictures for their mission scrapbook in later years haha.

    ReplyDelete
  59. They are all great but the Little Red Riding Hood is so adorable. Do you think when my son moves to Japan he will buy fabric for me? Doubtful. I guess you will just have to be my source.

    ReplyDelete
  60. they are all so cute! but my favourite is Cinderella! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I like the monkeys. My husband and I went to HI and were able to enjoya luau but nothing much to share about it.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Oh my, how can anyone choose a favorite of these, they are all so adorable! Although, I might like the monkeys and Red Riding Hood the best.

  67. I definitely would want the monkeys - my best friend has a cappuchin monkey that is her baby and I'm always looking for fabrics to make her something! No hula stories but my cousin did send me a wonderful book on Hawaiian quilting last week after a vacation there. She didn't invite me on her vacation though. :( blessings, marlene

  69. Oh I love the hula girls!!! We have fallen in love with Hawaii since our daughter and her family moved there. We have been lucky to be able to go visit them a few times and have such a wonderful time there. This fabric is just adorable. If I won it, I would be nice and give it to her! (maybe....)

  86. I like the Mary...dang it, can't spell without going back and looking. Those Russian dolls. Like them! Hula...hmmmm I remember one time we were having a dance festival for church, luckily the boys had shorts on underneath because one of the guys lost his skirt because of the intense polynesian dancing (it was Tahitian...not hula, but close as I could get with a story)

    ReplyDelete
  92. I'm not going to pretend, I love them all. plain and simple.

    Here's a hula...er...surfing story for you: I lived in Hawaii for year. I met my now husband while he was stationed at Pearl harbor naval station. One weekend we went out to north shore for surfing. My husband had taken a tourist kiddie lesson in wikiki the week before and thought he was a badass. we went out to the toughest beach possible and he got in the water. long story short, he didn't have a clue, got sucked out to seas by a rip tide and had to be rescued by not one but 2 lifeguards. He never went surfing again. we laugh about it now, but at the time It was scary...well, for him anyway. I laughed my butt of as soon as I knew he was safe.

    My sister lived in Hawaii for three years and I got to visit twice, but no good stories... I just wish I could look that good in a grass skirt!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Oh most def the Hawaiian Aloha Hula Girl is my favorite and oh so appropriate. On a trip to Maui years ago we encountered so many newlyweds from Japan. They were so cute and attentive to one another (remember those days?). At times there were more Japanese couples on the beach than any other group! Thanks for the chance.

  97. I love Peter Pan and Captain Hook. These are oh so cute:)

    ReplyDelete

  103. We moved to Honolulu two years ago. Right after we got here a woman in our ward was putting together a hula performance for our ward Christmas party so I signed up. It was a bunch of white girls trying to learn how to hula...we probably looked so goofy, but it was so much fun. I would love the hula girls fabric. cassidydawn(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  127. It's a toss up between Little red riding hood and the Matryoshka dolls. I like them both. Hula story? My grandparents went to Hawaii in the late 60's and brought back a hula skirt and a coconut bra. They were such a unique delight for Texas farm kids. So we always pulled those out of the drawer and played like Hula dancers when we went over to the grandparents.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I bought a charm pack of some of these prints from you last spring! I loved them the first time I saw them. I'd love to add Little Red to my collection!
