Hand Dyed Fabric Giveaway! CLOSED

Woohoo! I love having a giveaway! Lucy at Charm About You is having round two of Fugly Fabric Giveaway Linky Party. Last time, I had a blast giving away a ton of fugly fabric, but this time I decided that I would give away some NOT so fugly fabric - some of my own hand dyed fabric. I really love this fabric and want to share a little bit with a lucky winner.

Three 1/2 yard pieces of hand dyed fabric. The base fabric is Robert Kaufman PFD (prepared for dyeing).

Cerulean blue, fuchsia  and purple

Magenta, Fuchsia and purple

Two tone purple
Each piece has been dyed with high quality procion dyes and has quite a lot of variation.

 How to enter to win 1.5 yards of Hand Dyed fabric:
1. Leave ONE comment about hand dyed fabric i.e. have you ever dyed, have you ever used hand dyed, do you like hand dyed etc. MAKE SURE I HAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS so I can contact you. No email, no winning!
 
2. For a second chance to win, follow my blog, tell me in a second comment. If you are already a follower tell me that in a second comment.

3. This giveaway will be open until May 13th at 7:00 p.m. EDT. You can leave ONE comment per day on this post for additional chances to win.

 I will ship internationally. Mr. Random will pick the winner on May 13th at 7:00 p.m. EDT, winner will be announced May 14th at 7:00 a.m. EDT. PLEASE make sure I have your email address, no email address = no entry!

  16. I have never used hand-dyed fabric. I've always been afraid the colors would run but I guess you do something to set the colors so that doesn't happen. I would love to try using the hand-dyed fabric. Thanks for the opportunity.

  27. I really don't know if this counts as hand dyed- I hand bleached a T shirt for my husband, like tie dye, but tie bleaching! It was for a sixties theme party.

    I have also hand painted fabric for costumes. Including hook and eye tape!

  75. I have not dyed fabric before or used hand dyed fabric. I have dyed clothes and even shoes, love that you can transform something radically yet simply using dye. Now, your fabric looks gorgeous, and in my small stash I have mainly (95%) of loud prints and I am always lacking something to balance those, like your beautiful fabric.
