Today is the last day of Giveaway Week. Have you entered all of them: day 1, 2, 3, and 4? Day 5’s giveaway is a very weird. We’re giving away 4 meters of fabric,
but I don’t have any pictures of the fabric. I have no idea what the fabric even looks like! pictured here! All this beautiful fabric is certified organic too!
The story [of Zonen 09 fabric] is actually the same as the one with the patterns. I sew for my boys but I couldn’t find what I was looking for. It is hard to find stylish boyish fabric that both me and my boys like.
If I wanted boy fabrics I liked I would have to create them myself and although I have the ideas, I can not draw. So I searched for someone who could and had the style I was looking for. I found her in Paris and our collaboration was perfect. She drew exactly what I asked for and added her own special touch.
Here is where I should show you the awesome drawings that came from this mysterious Parisian lady, but I can’t. ARG! Instead I’m going to show you some of the fabric choices Sharon makes, because she has a great style.
Chevrons, snails, crazy stripes? The lady knows how to push the envelope when it comes to boys-wear. Retailers tell us our boys should be wearing red, navy, and gray–and maybe some green for good measure. We make a point to tell our daughters they can wear any color they want, why shouldn’t our sons wear yellow bunnies or aqua stripes if they want to?
By now you are yelling, “When do I get to see this awesome fabric?! Tomorrow! You can hang on until then right? Because tomorrow is Zonen 09’s third birthday, Sharon has put together a special launch party for her fabric collection:
A lot of my customers are Belgian and Dutch bloggers who give Zonen 09 so much visibility without asking anything in return. Without them, Zonen 09 would not have been able to grow the way it did the last three years…I decided to host a product launch event combined with a Zonen 09 birthday party for about 100 of those bloggers and best customers. The event takes place this Saturday June 20th. The invitees will get a few hours of with lots of treats and they will be the first people to see my fabrics. After that the rest of the sewing world can too.
EDITED TO ADD: and it is good! This mini collection consists of small scale prints, reminiscent of bugs, in fantastic colors. All Zonen 09 fabrics are certified organic. There is one jersey print and one poplin print, both available in three color ways
Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter by Friday, June 26. This giveaway is open to international entries, void where prohibited by law. One winner will receive 4 meters of Zonen 09 fabric: 2 meters poplin and 2 meters jersey (your choice of colors).
