[comments now closed, winner announced 10/27!]


Recently, Windham Fabrics sent me Type, the upcoming debut fabric collection by Julia Rothman.  This collection is scheduled for release in November.  It’s a fun collection with a typewriter/office theme and cool retro colors.

I was given a 10″ stacker pack that contains 2 of each of the above prints.  I’ve been letting my mind wander and think of all the projects for which one might choose this collection.  Office decor? A quilt for a writer?




Tell us, what would you use this fabric for?  Leave a comment below with at least one idea and you will be entered into the Type Giveaway!  I will announce the winner on Saturday’s sale post (10/27).

    This fabric would be fantastic for making little bins and such for work. As a cubicle dweller, I would love to liven things up and add a bit of personality, so maybe a few small bins for office supplies (pens, etc.) and a quilted name plate to hang on the outside of my cubicle (it would be much nicer then the boring printed one I have right now).

    I’d make a mug rug and mug cosy for my desk at work, then I’d probably make something else for my desk… not sure what yet… it definitely needs cheering up!

    The glasses fabric is so much fun, I would have to make a glasses case for my husband who is forever putting them down somewhere or other. I would use the others on some fabric baskets to use in the office area. Thanks for the giveaway.

    i think glasses cases out of the glasses fabric would be great. and a ipad cover using the typewriters. i just love the paperclip fabric!

  23. Helene says:

    I think I’d make either a set of linen table napkins using the fabrics as contrast strips, and make a matching set of tea towels for the kitchen.

    I have an attic office space with two side-by-side windows and that fabric would be perfect for some patchwork valances. Right now I only have some half shutters on the windows and really need something to soften the look. Those fabrics are the perfect pattern for my “work space”
