Giveaway: Farbenmix Fabrics


I previously featured the new prints produced by German pattern/ribbon/embellishments company Farbenmix in this post. The Farbenmix folks were kind enough to send me a big package of fabric and coordinating ribbons! And I’m here today to share the wealth. Tell me your favorite print in the comments, and I’ll draw four names to receive a yard of fabric and a couple yards of ribbon. Comments will close and the winners will be drawn next Wednesday, July 14, 2010, at 3pm CDT.


LoveChirp by Luzia Pimpinella (amazing photography on her blog!)


Miss Liber-T by mymaki — so cute that Germans would produce this ode to America! In return I will root for Germany in today’s World Cup match. But, Spain fans, don’t worry, I am but an American fair-weather football fan who knows nothing.


Fliepis by paulapü


Tattoo Kids by Hamburger Liebe — check out her Spoonflower designs too!

There was an accusation in the earlier post’s comments that the Farbenmix fabrics were not of high quality, so I tested them myself. I cut and machine-laundered and machine-dried 10″ swatches of each print. They didn’t fade one bit as far as I could tell, and a normal amount of shrinkage (2-5% lengthwide and barely any widthwise). They are a lovely medium-weight 100% cotton and were beautifully soft after laundering. See pictures of the laundered swatches alongside the unwashed yardage on Flickr. Apparently there are some knockoffs of these fabrics going around, so maybe that is what the commenter received.
