IMPROV fabric design GIVEAWAY

December 4, 2012


So I had this weird yet intriguing idea in the night, an idea that was (I hoped) a virginly new one, an idea that might get peeps excited and buzzing about a novel and exciting thing to participate in. I think you’ll find it intriguing too. It involves winning a yard of texty fabric. But better yet, it involves your input!


STEP 1: You think of your favourite adjective/s. It can be in any language but it must be an adjective, and it can’t be obscene.  Make sure no one has already picked the same word/s. Then you leave a comment on this post with this fabulous, deadly, amazing, flowery, dashing, grotesque, original, cheeky, hairy (or smooth), large yet tiny, ambitious and intrepid adjective. Along with your favourite colour. (Or a colour that you’d like a yard of fabric in.) And don’t forget a link or email address so that I can find you if you win.

STEP 2: Then we will bring in Ruby, our living, eating, breathing, hot-blooded and talented Random Number Generator, to pick a winner. Remember Ruby? Check out the link if you don’t. And although you may think that using adjectives like “carroty” or “green” may serve you well with this Random Number Generator, good luck with that. He’s not that bright. (Yes, Ruby is a “he” – but that’s another long story)

STEP 3: I design a fabric using  ALL the adjectives sent in, and using the winner’s colour choice.

STEP 4: The lucky winner receives a yard of Kona printed with the hot-off-the-press, texty fabric design.

You in? Great. You know what to do. Only ONE entry per person please.

DEADLINE: Enter by midnight (PST) on Wednesday December 12.

      Hi Barb
      Technically speaking “enthusiasm” is a noun so I’ll make yours “enthusiastic” if that’s OK with you. I know, I’m such a geek! Thanks for participating.

    I’m adding a few adjectives of my own as I think of ones I like: persnickety, pompous, curly, chunky, feathered, freckled, hilarious, skinny (as in latté), riveting, crusty, tangy, nutty, ambitious, juxtaposing and ridiculous. I heart language. Such a geek!

    Spiffy! Ooo swanky is a good one too or zippy!

    Yes I agree this is a brilliant idea! I ended up on the phone with my father in law debating if I could pass off kerfuffled as an adjective. He didn’t think so and I trust him since he is our families self proclaimed nitpicker.

    • berene permalink
      December 6, 2012 2:24 pm

      Ha ha. If a girl, say, forgot half of what she wanted to say in her comment, one could describe the comment as “a kerfuffled comment” – wouldn’t you say? In which case the word “kerfuffled” would be an adjective. So I’m putting it in. Maybe in yellow?!

  28. December 6, 2012 11:01 am

    Great idea! Awesomesauce, crafty, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, Canadian, fabulous, immature, and skookum are words I’d love to see on fabric. I’d probably go for classic black text on a white background.

  29. Lysa Flower permalink
    December 6, 2012 11:03 am

    Whoops I forgot enter my favourite colour-yellow. Talk about being kerfuffled!
