Jessica's BasicGrey Canvas Sampler and a GIVEAWAY!

BasicGrey Canvas Sampler
Here's the canvas Sampler from BasicGrey that I had to work with. It was such a fun (and easy!) project to work on for the afternoon! I added bits of my favorite fabrics adhered with Steam-a-Seam. Iron the fabrics on very lightly from the front just to hold the pieces in place. Flip the canvas over on your ironing board and then you can iron the whole thing from the back and really stick on your fabric pieces. It worked great!
Basicgrey Sampler - corner
I love the glazed buttons and vintage buttons from BasicGrey layered on top of the fabrics and rickrack flowers! It adds so much dimension and interest to the piece. I even dug out some vintage straw flowers and some other flowers I had stashed in my scrapbook stuff to add to the mix.
(I know I'm going to get asked about the rickrack flowers... they are from an article in the Martha Stewart 'baby' magazine from Spring 2003. I couldn't find a link to the article on her website. Here's a link to a similar way that I made mine.)
Basic Grey Sampler - flowers
Wouldn't these be a great gift to give? You could make them up personalized for someone or they could have fun designing it themselves. Jennifer and I both thought that it's very easy to make these look good! You can see Jennifer's version of the Sampler here. They are super easy to do with the design that's already printed on!

Thank you so much to BasicGrey for allowing Jennifer and I to try out these samplers and buttons. We both love how they've turned out! Mine is already hanging in K's room above her nightstand. :)
Giveaway Sampler
So, maybe this is the best part!

BasicGrey has sent Jennifer and I an extra Sampler and TONS of goodies to go along with it! There's vintage buttons, glazed buttons, embroidered buttons, vintage patches and an 11" x 14" Saffron Sampler.

Please leave a comment if you'd like to win this great package!

I'll choose a winner by random number on September 20.
Make sure that you leave a way for me to contact you if you win.
Please note that this giveaway is open to those residing within the United States.

Giveaway Sampler and goodies
Good Luck!
~Jessica
