I couldn't decide - you are all so talented! So I let random.org do the choosing for me, and it generated numbers 1 and 6. Commenters 1 and 6 are SallyAnne and Christine of BonTons.
Congratulations, ladies, I will be sending you messages to get postal addresses to send out your fat quarter!
Don't forget to check back in a couple of weeks, to see the tutorials from SallyAnne and Christine! They will also be listed at Totally Tutorials.

I am so excited to be participating in this wonderful idea by Dotty at Totally Tutorials.

All I ask is that you create a tutorial to go with your project and post it on your blog, or Craftster, or a similar blog. Good photos and clear instructions for your tutorial are a must!When you post your tutorial, please link to me (www.FabricFusion.etsy.com) and submit your tutorial to the Totally Tutorials blog. Your tutorial must be completed and posted to your blog within 2 weeks of you receiving the fabric.
When I post the tutorial here on my blog (and on my Facebook and my Twitter etc) I will link to you (your blog, etsy store or wherever you wish). It's a win-win for everyone!
To be considered for this exchange, please leave comments below, with a link to your blog or site, and a way to contact you. Deadline to submit your name is next Tuesday, 27 October. I will contact and announce who will be getting the chance to do lovely things with yummy fabric, on Wednesday, 28 October.

I have decided to call the new design .... Sweet Candy Basket
This is an amalgamation of entries by Esther (EthanZachEmma) and PJ (Unpicking Is the Pits), so congratulations ladies, you are both winners! Let me know if you prefer 50% off the purchase price, or the pdf pattern to create your own Sweet Candy Basket!
There are 2 different styles of Sweet Candy Basket available ready made at Sasha Sews right now. The pdf pattern, and kits that will include all your fabric cut to size, magnetic snap, and everything else you need to make your own, will be available at both Sasha Sews and Fabric Fusion, very soon.
Thanks again... and I am back to the drawing board with another idea, so look out for another request for your creative names.

The prize will be your choice of either 50% off the purchase price of this bag, OR the pdf pattern, free, to make it yourself!
Remember, it is the style / shape that I need a name for - this bag will be made up in lots of delicious designer fabrics (.... mmmm..... like the new Amy Butler 'Love' range that will be on my doorstep very very soon....), so the colour and print will be variable.
Don't forget to leave an email address or other way to contact you! Thanks, I can't wait to see your creativity!!
Oh, and if you can't wait and have to own it straight away..... check them out at my handmade shop www.SashaSews.etsy.com !

This simple stitching idea makes fragrant pads to go into your clothes dryer, so that your clothes come out with a delicious scent of your choice. I think it would also fragrance your laundry room very well, at the same time.
The recommended size pieces are small (about 5cm x 5cm), so perfect for using pieces from your scrap stash - including scraps of wadding, which can be hard to find a good use for.
Here is the link - I hope you enjoy, and that your laundry is made more pleasant.

Oh, and if you make some - come and leave a link to some photos, so we can all admire them!

please, Mr Postman, bring me my shipment of Amy Butler and Tanya Whelan fabrics........ I have been very good, and just can't wait till they are on my doorstep, and in my work room!
From Tanya Whelan's Ava Rose collection -
And the lovely Amy Butler's Park Fountains in green .....
There. I said it - is that step 1? OH NO! But I don't want a cure -- I love my fabric habit! So much that I have just opened Fabric Fusion!
I know how hard it is to browse for delicious fabrics with children, or husbands / partners / boyfriends, in tow. My 2 sweet little kids make craft and fabric shops a generally hazardous area for me (NO - don't wipe your sticky fingers on that gorgeous designer fabric bolt!). And don't even ask about the time that my baby chucked all over a rack of fabric bolts, in Spotlight.
So the solution is to order it in! (Takeaway fabric is far healthier for you than takeaway food!). Browse at your leisure, and enjoy unwrapping a parcel of divine fabrics - because they have been delivered right to your door. You can even treat it like a box of chocolates and slowly take out 1 new piece of fabric from your package, each day - if your will power is stronger than mine, of course.
This Fabric Fusion blog will bring together sneak peeks of new fabrics that are soon to be listed, together with the best of free patterns for all sorts of crafty projects, from across the web. I hope you enjoy - and feel free to share your fabric obsession with me!
