in LOVE with amy butler + giveaway

by kath_red on 16/11/2009

in Sewing+Fabric

Amy’s new collection – LOVE – is a heady mix of a pretty florals and ethnic architectural designs – inspired by her recent adventures in Indonesia and England. The colours are rich, hot and tropical – with more dark colours – blacks and navys than we have seen with Amy’s collections before.

I have recently discovered and fallen for the simple creaminess of her solids collection which perfectly offsets her earlier suites of fabrics. I hope there is a solid range coming out to accompany LOVE.

Amy Butler is giving 3 whipup readers the chance to win a pattern pack with the Madison bag, Sweet Harmony bag and The Field Bag. Leave a comment here about what you have made with Amy Butler fabric.

You have 48 hours to enter. winners will be emailed – thanks for entering everyone!

Winners have now been contacted via email – congratulations Angela, Leisa and Christie.

Cool! I love Amy Butler’s fabric and patterns. Just yesterday, I finished cutting out my fabric for a Birdie Sling bag. I’m using the home dec weight August Fields. I can’t wait to finish it, so I can use it!

3 Heather November 16, 2009 at 8:28 am

I’ve made curtains, handbags and a duvet cover all out of Amy Butler fabrics …

8 Christie Porter November 16, 2009 at 8:42 am

I have just started to sew again after a 30 year break. Amy Butler’s Frenchy handbag was actually my second project (working on project three now). I used Amy’s home decorating fabric: August Fields–Slate/Knot Garden for the lining; Spruce/Coreopsis for the outside main panels and handles; Grey/Modern Love for the top panels. I am extremely pleased with the results (and I had never sewn a purse before)! The purse looks darling, and I am giving it to my son’s girlfriend for her birthday at the end of this month.

9 Adrianna November 16, 2009 at 8:46 am

What HAVEN’T I made?! Zipper pouches, skirts, a dress, appliques, a passport holder, pillows, her Brick Path Quilt…. I could go on!

34 lisa November 16, 2009 at 9:53 am

nothing yet as none of the fabric stores in this area carry her fabric. I am doing my best to change that at the fabric store that I work for.
I do love the wonderful graphic nature of her work though.

35 dot highter November 16, 2009 at 9:55 am

43 skippingdaisies November 16, 2009 at 10:21 am

Wow what can’t you make with Amy Butler fabrics. I have made some cushions for the lounge and i would desperately love to make a bag and clothing. It’s on the never-ending growing to-do list.

44 Sara L. November 16, 2009 at 10:26 am

I have used her fabrics in several quilts I have made, as well as a couple of handbags. I have never used her patterns, but I would love to start!

45 Laura November 16, 2009 at 10:28 am

Oooooh! Amy Butler patterns are the best! So stylish, so well-written, so easy-to-follow even for a sewing semi-newbie like myself. I made her high street messenger bag with fabrics from the midwest modern collection.

63 Amy November 16, 2009 at 11:26 am

I have made the Blue Sky hat, Cabo Halter, and two Weekender Bags with Amy Butler fabric. Also a queen-sized duvet cover, an eye mask, Anna Maria Horner’s socialite dress, and a throw quilt for my mother-in-law where I used uncut pieces of two different AB fabrics for the front and back. I’m sure there are other things as well, but they aren’t coming to me at the moment!

Amy Butler fabrics really are gorgeous. I’ve asked my local craft shop to stock them, and I live in hope!! Last Christmas I made a load of peg doll kits using Amy Butler fabric to sell at my daughter’s school fayre – they all sold out making around £80 for the school. I want to get some more of her fabric this year to make covered notebooks. I’d love to make one of her bags though! Here;s hoping with fingers extra crossed ;)

92 Wendy November 16, 2009 at 1:06 pm

I planning on picking up more of her fabric for Christmas presents for my girls.

97 sassypriscilla November 16, 2009 at 1:18 pm

I’ve made a lot of things using her fabric. Most memorably, I made the laundry bag in her book as a graduation gift for my cousin. I just bought some to recover parts of my cat-scratched couch and make coordinating pillows. I also just bought some to make a shower curtain.

104 beccy November 16, 2009 at 1:51 pm

112 Megan November 16, 2009 at 2:30 pm

The best thing I have made with Amy Butler fabric? For my sister’s birthday, I gave her a basket brimming with fat quarters of every Amy Butler pattern and weight available in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. I went to five stores, and it was worth it: You should have heard her squeal!

This is the finished bag here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/starrysworld/2663147155/

I’m having heart palpitations this giveaway is so great. I have never found amy butler fabric in my town, but I would make probably a quilt with it should I find it. Gorgeous awesomeness! <3

141 marie beck November 16, 2009 at 4:28 pm

I am so embarrassed to say that I have never splurged on Amy Butler fabric, but I want to soooooo bad! I want to make bags and aprons and cozies of all sorts out of it!

142 Leah November 16, 2009 at 4:29 pm

I’ve used snippets in a quilt, and covered my diary in Amy’s fabric, but mostly I just have it sitting in the cupboard for a rainy day.

143 suzanne November 16, 2009 at 4:32 pm

I’ve made a lap quilt with Amy’s fabrics and also love using it for mixed media projects, art journals, and the like. Thanks for the great give-away!

144 Katie November 16, 2009 at 4:37 pm

I used her fabric to make a beautiful quilt and several bags!

145 stacy November 16, 2009 at 4:38 pm

I’ve made a lot of bags with Amy’s fabrics, but also did my entire sewing room in one of her lines (machine covers, pillows, and an apron to ‘dress’ my dressform)!

146 Laura November 16, 2009 at 4:46 pm

What wouldn’t I make with Amy Butler fabrics? Quilts, baby gifts, clothes, bags. So love her prints.

153 Danielle November 16, 2009 at 5:11 pm

163 Shirley November 16, 2009 at 6:51 pm

I have just bought my first lot of Amy Butler fabric to make a skirt with. Something simple and summery.

164 Amy November 16, 2009 at 6:55 pm

176 LisaB November 16, 2009 at 8:39 pm

187 Maria Peagler November 16, 2009 at 10:06 pm

I’ve made three Amy Butler bags: the Swing bag, the Drawstring purse, and the backpack (can’t remember the name) when Amy was still publishing under the Country Living name. Gorgeous fabric in the LOVE line.

188 Kate November 16, 2009 at 10:06 pm

198 Stefanie November 16, 2009 at 10:58 pm

I have made many a Birdie Sling bag. They are just perfect. Small enough to carry as a big purse, but roomy enough to pack full for a weekend trip! They make great gifts and everyone just loves them.

199 Sara November 16, 2009 at 11:04 pm

I haven’t done any big sewing projects lately, but I have fabric and the pattern to make the Barcelona skirt.

200 Amy November 16, 2009 at 11:11 pm

206 Dawn November 16, 2009 at 11:39 pm

213 Shannon November 17, 2009 at 1:14 am

Adore her stuff! I own quite a bit of her fabric, but have only made a plastic bag holder and a stuffed baby ball with it thus far. Considering those are the two of the three sewing projects I’ve made, her fabric has dominated my work!

214 Courtney November 17, 2009 at 1:22 am

227 Christine November 17, 2009 at 8:07 am

The fabric gives me an adrenaline rush! I’ve made pillows, a duvet cover, and handbags – all beautiful. I recently made some baby bibs for an ultra modern mom who dislikes traditional prints. Excellent!

228 Louise November 17, 2009 at 8:17 am

I haven’t made anything (yet). But I have a long wish list.

229 Ajaire November 17, 2009 at 10:01 am

I love amy’s fabrics! I made two of her bags and the patterns are great and easy to follow. I’ve asked for her In Stitches book for Christmas this year so I’d love a chance to win more of her patterns!

230 Shari November 17, 2009 at 10:15 am

It’s easisr to list what I haven’t made with her fabric! Quilts-check. Pillows-check. Bags-check. Clothes-check. I own most of her patterns and just purchased her software. Pattern use: Betty Shopper (four times), Cabo halter (three times), Weekender (twice), Birdie Sling (twice), Stash Bags (twice), Blue Sky Hats (twice), Birdie Sling (twice), Sling Bag. Plan to make a number of the tunics this fall for spring.

I loved the home decor fabic released with Kokka. The pods fabric was my favorite and I could use many more yards of the lime pods!

231 Me-shell November 17, 2009 at 10:20 am

I have yet to make anything with her fabric (although I do have a couple yards sitting in my stash somewhere), but I’ve made several of her Birdie Sling bags.

232 Emily November 17, 2009 at 10:24 am

I love her cheerful fabrics and fun but sensible and piratical patterns. I use sewing as a way to clear my head and cope with grad school. I am very grateful to such inspirational crafters who share their love of sewing on blogs for everyone to enjoy.

233 Kimmi November 17, 2009 at 10:27 am

Super cute diaper covers this past summer. I haven’t tried any of her patterns yet but I sure would like too! ; )

238 Vicky November 17, 2009 at 11:39 am

When I was new at sewing (still pretty new!) I went through Amy’s In Stitches book and made several projects. I found the instructions very thorough, detailed and easy to follow. And they all turned out great!

239 Heather November 17, 2009 at 1:12 pm

Oohh, how fun! I love Love! I just made two sets of pillowcases out of Love and used some of the scraps in a quilt.

245 Lauren November 17, 2009 at 4:15 pm

246 Heidi November 17, 2009 at 4:18 pm

I love Amy Butler’s fabrics. I have used them in applique as well as throw pillows. One day I will have the courage to try the weekender bag which I love!

247 chelsey November 17, 2009 at 4:22 pm

I made a totally awesome quilt out of Amy’s very first line called Gypsy Caravan. I love it and it makes me smile daily!

248 Billie November 17, 2009 at 4:25 pm

LOVE the fabric! I also love that you share free patterns. I plan on using my newest amy fabrics to make the portfolio pattern I found at the site today. I’m off to sew, thanks for the contest!

249 margot kingon November 17, 2009 at 4:45 pm

What haven’t I made! Bags, quilts, headbands….so much more to do!

250 Leisa Zoeller November 17, 2009 at 6:10 pm

Amy Butler is the reason I have recently returned to sewing/crafting.Her use of fabrics and colour and her gorgeous patterns. I havent made anything from her patterns yet, Im working on a tight budget and still need the patterns, but I have a small Stash of her Fabric and plan to make a handbag very soon (like, next pay cycle). Im also eyeing off the new Tunic pattern. But a handbag first I think.

251 Courtney November 17, 2009 at 7:01 pm

i made a cutie skirt and am working on a bag! she’s so much fun!!

252 camila November 17, 2009 at 7:26 pm

Booo, this is so bad. I’ve never made anything from Amy Butler, because I can’t find her products where I live. So I’ll love to get one of the prizes!

253 pamela November 17, 2009 at 7:31 pm

Bags! Quilts! Clothes!

259 Alyson November 17, 2009 at 11:34 pm

I’ve made two bags with Amy fabric, as well as wristlets and log cabin pacthwork cushion covers. Also a knitting needle roll and pencil case. Amy Butler fabric goes pretty quickly, so no matter how small the swatches I’m able to get my hands on, I turn them into something.

260 Becca November 18, 2009 at 12:06 am

I just dont think I could love her fabric any more . . . perfect!

261 Aimee November 18, 2009 at 12:09 am
