Original Post: 
Weekend Kits is participating in May Giveaway Day at Sew Mama Sew!  One winner will be randomly selected to win two Fabric Panel Craft Kits - the Blue Toile Apron Kit from Springs Creative and the Harper Handbag Kit from Fabric Editions.


Fabric panel craft kits are a great choice for beginners just getting started sewing.  With fabric panels, there's no need for traditional tissue-paper patterns, because the pattern pieces are printed directly on the fabric.  You simply cut the pieces from the fabric panel & sew!

Fabric panel sewing kits also appeal to busy crafters looking for a quick & easy sewing project they can start & finish in less than a day.  You can see our complete selection of fabric panel sewing kits in the Sewing Project Kits section of the store.

Lots of great items--I think my favorite category is the Sewing Projects. I could give one of these to my niece and then enjoy spending time with her while she works on it. Thanks for the giveaway.
