nani IRO giveaway

March 7, 2013

What better way to celebrate the designs of nani IRO month than to giveaway some nani IRO fabric? I’m not giving any from my stash, I love them too much to even think of doing that ;P But luckily for all of us, my very kind sponsor Miss Matatabi on Etsy, has agreed to sponsor not just 1, but 2 whole yards of nani IRO fabric!!!

First of all, a quick introduction to Miss Matatabi – Miss Matatabi is a little family owned fabric store specializing in modern Japanese fabrics and trims. The owner is Frances and not only is she super friendly, she has a really awesome range of nani IRO fabrics in her store. She is based in Japan so you get them directly from the source and shipped worldwide with fast and efficient service (spoken from real-life experience as a customer). Go and check out her store, but be warned for you might get stuck there for a while. ;P

For the giveaway she has selected 2 different designs, 1 yard each so that we can have not 1, but 2 winners!

Pon Pocho – NIKO
2012 collection

Now it’s time to get excited! Here’s how you enter the giveaway. You don’t have to do all of them, but for every extra point you do, you get an extra chance to win!

1. Like my Facebook page
2. Follow me on instagram –
3. Like Miss Matatabi’s facebook page
4. Follow Miss Matatabi on instagram –
5. One extra chance will be given for those who “Share” the posts on either of our Facebook pages listed above.

Finally, leave a comment below this post and tell me which of the above you have done, as well as your Facebook/Instagram usernames (so that we know who to give the fabric to ;P)
One comment per person please. Thank you!
And remember, the comments need to be approved (to cut down on spam) so if you are commenting for the first time, don’t be worried if you don’t see your comment showing up immediately.

This giveaway ends on the 28th of March 00:00hrs UTC/GMT (click to find out the corresponding time where you are), and I will announce the 2 winners on the following day.

    […] More ideas on how to use the fabric. The woodblock pocho is a really cute design. There are so many different parts to the fabric that you can play with because of the way the pattern is repeated. You can be sure every single garment you make out of it is unique!  😛 Does this fabric look familiar? That’s because it’s one of the designs for the giveaway! Enter here (if you haven’t done so already) […]
