Contest Sponsor: Amy Butler!

My new favorite person in the whole wide world?

Amy. Butler.

Or-as she has become known in our household-"AMY STINKIN' BUTLER!!!!" :o)

I emailed Amy during the planning stages of the "Ruffle Your Stuff" contest to see if she wanted to donate an autographed book to the grand prize winner. (Yeah, right. Like Amy Stinkin' Butler cares about my little contest.) And a couple of days later her wonderfully sweet promo specialist emailed me and said that Amy would love to donate a book, and how about some patterns, too? And to let them know if there is anything else they can help with. Ah! Could they be any nicer?? That just totally warms my heart, that big, fantastic people still care about the little, less-fantastic people like myself :o)

So I mean it, whole-heartedly, when I endorse her, and say....go blow your entire life savings on her fabric. :o) Her newest collection, "Love", is, well, just that. I would give up a year of life to get some of that fabric :o)

And in case you're new on the scene? Amy Butler is a designer, most famous for her beautiful fabrics and sewing patterns, but she also has many other wonderful products. Books, bags, bedding, art, stationary, even gift-wrap and table ware!
Please go and check out all of her stuff, and be prepared to fall deeply, deeply in love.


Some of Amy's handiwork:

Fabric swatches:

(DYING OVER THESE!!)

Bedding:


Rugs: (cool!!)
Even towels!
You'll have to go to the website to see the rest!


So thank you, Amy, for your sweetness and generosity! :o)

  5. Love her stuff! I am a beginner and I am desperately trying to find somewhere locally to get my hands on her stuff.

    Love your stuff too! Definitely wish you had a boy too so I could see what you come up with for little guys.

  7. Wow Amy Butler, that is great, I do love her fabrics as well and hope to one day have a big collection besides just Joann's. I guess I'm not much of an online fabric shopper (yet). I have a hard time not being able to touch it and feel comfortable buying something I can't see. So glad that she is contributing.

  43. What could be better than an Amy Butler giveaway. I feel like my husband knows more about Amy Butler than he really should because I am so obsessed with her. I talk about her like she is my imaginary friend. Creepy? Maybe but she is so talented I feel justified in it!
