Free Pattern and Fabric Friday!

on May 31 | in Contests & Giveaways | by | with 334 Comments

Today we’re going to play a little game called “Which Fabrics Would You Choose?” We’ll show you a pattern and you tell us which fabrics from our shop you would use. We’ll randomly select one person to win the pattern and the fabric they need to make it. Easy and fun, right?

Split Personality Reversible Bag ~ Straight Stitch SocietyThis awesome REVERSIBLE bag pattern is from Straight Stitch Society, a new pattern line by Liesl Gibson, the designer behind Oliver+S. Based on the super solid reputation of O+S, I think it is safe to bet that these new patterns will clear and accurate with an attention to detail.

Tell us, which fabrics would you choose? They must be in-stock in our shop. List your choices in the comments (it can be just the name, not the link.) We’ll randomly select a winner on Monday.

    Super cute bag! I really like the shape. O+S definitely know what they are doing. I really like Aloha Cream Mulit, Kite Ties in Ocean, and Trunk Tops in Cream for this bag. Lucy’s Crab Shack is awesome. Thanks!

  131. jennifer t says:

    Love the fabric the purse is made in! I also like the Pearl Bracelet Aqua and the Bulles Brown, cool combo.

  132. Karen A says:

    I would pick Groovy Floral Orange, Tonal Brown – Pezzy Print, and Pumpkin Shot Cotton.

  133. Jamie says:

    Umbrellas Multi ~ Town & Country
    Black ~ Essex Yarn Dyed

    Pretty, pretty!!

  134. Sarah B says:

    Such a darling bag! I think it would be quite cute with Frog Prince COTTON CANVAS ~ Trefle and Honeycomb Dot Green ~ Kei on one side and Honeycomb Dot Red ~ Kei and Apple Hearts COTTON CANVAS ~ Trefle on the reverse.

    I’d make the lower body half in Ornament Morocan Red – Tradewinds, and the top in Fall London Bus Red – Summerville on the outside and plain Ivory – Essex Linen/Cotton Blend on the inside, with the button strap in Blue Jeans Shot Cotton. Oohh – I can picture it now!

  142. Sharon says:

    What a great pattern!! So since it is early summer and everything is blooming I have to go with Cashmere Bamboo-Cocoon to represent the little creatures that help things grow. And the Leaf dot Grey to represent the actual things growing in my yard!! And a Kona solid of Corn Yellow for the sun! What a bright beautiful bag that would be!! Thanks again

  143. Emily says:

    I love the color in crossroads clementine from “A Stitch in Color” and I would add a little of honeycomb dot lime from Kei fabrics. I think those citrus colors would make a beautiful bag with this pattern.

  144. Margaret says:

    I’d use Essex Linen/Cotton Blend in Steel and Cashmere in Blue Moon from the Cocoon line for Side 1. And for Side 2, I’d use Essex Yarn Dyed in Leather and Vintage Flowers Green from Ruby Star Shining. For Fabric E (the 12×10 piece), I’d use a purple/red that coordinates with the Ruby Star Shining fabric. Maybe Mulberry? I’d need help on that.

  145. kate C. says:

    La Paloma blue red – Folklorico! And some other coordinating blue or red solid.

  146. krystina says:

    I think the Maasai Mara fabrics would make a cool bag! Especially the blue colorways. I would incorporate Maasai Blue for sure since it’s my favorite from the line.

  147. Anne says:

    I would make a purse with the following:

    The bottom: Peacock Feathers Sea Glass ~ Soul Blossoms HOME DEC (so there is more support)

  154. Kate says:

    This is such a cute pattern 🙂

    I would use “Buses Red” and “Tiny Diamonds Red” for one side
    And “School Uniform Apple” with a coordinating solid. I can’t tell if Kona’s “Banana” is a good match, but it almost looks like it from my screen!

  155. JennX says:

    Thanks for this. Struggled with the following but I think they work together?!
    Summer Totem Bronze & Jellybean Watermelon and a Kona solid to make the flap!

  156. Joy says:

    I’d use Amy Butler: Hammock Stripe Mocha ~ Gypsy Caravan and Lime ~ Full Moon Dot

  157. Diana says:

    I’m in need of a new bag – so a purse it would be.
    The Poise Turquoise is cute with maybe the blue circles park but then again the Nestling Pink Chickadees are super cute!

  158. Steph W says:

    Victoria Tea Party by Lily Ashbury and some nice linen

  159. Jenelle says:

    Fabric A: Vintage Flowers Green ~ Ruby Star Shining
    Fabric B: Putty ~ Essex Linen/Cotton Blend

  160. Aida says:

    This is fun! I’d use some fabric from the It’s a Shore Thing collection, so summery and beachy! I’d just have to use the “Clams Sand” (how not to?) and I’d pair it with “Cabana Stripe Navy” on one side. On the other side, I’d have “Cabana Stripe Red” with “Beach Umbrellas Navy”


  161. Heather S. says:

    Oooooh My Goodness!! There is just so much to choose… I would love one of all but since that is not practical, I would love Aloha Cream Multi ~ Lucy’s Crab Shack – good choice? I think so too!

  177. Liz T. says:

    I’m pretty traditional, while I love some of your Japanese imports, I think I might have to go with Flea Market Fancy–Boutique Grey and Posies Tourquise.

  178. Jill says:

    I would choose Lucy’s crab shack – blanket green orange plaid on bottom and aloha orange flowers on top, with maybe a solid green strap (Kona chartreuse?)

    that bag is so cute!!

  179. Tara Weigner says:

    Oh how fun! I love this reversible purse. For side one, I’d use It’s a Shore Thing Sand with Flip Flops Blue (by day!)and then for side two, I’d use Marionetas Natural with Estrella de los Muertos Natural (by night!).

  184. Dell says:

    I would use linen for the bottom and several Summersville prints for the rest of the bag,

  185. Jess says:

    I’d use the Tula Pink Nightshade Collection – Coven, Raven Lace and Storm Cloud in the Evening colors. Fun and gothic, just the way I like it! 🙂

  186. Lauren James says:

    Lovely bag!
    I would use Aloha Orange and Trunks and Tops cream for one side, and then Aloha Deep Sea and Flip Flop Pink Bikini from Lucy’s Crab Shack!

  187. emily says:

    I’d use some Posies fabric from Flea Market Fancy.

  188. I’d choose the coven vapor nightshade with the spider blossom vapor nightshade, that I adore…
    And for the closure the starcomb stones curious natura.

  189. Shelby says:

    Alphabetty London Bus Red-Summersville
    Red 1308-Kona Cotton

    And a blue to match the blue in the print, not easy to second guess on a computer monitor but maybe Cornflower 27 ~ Kona Cotton

  191. Cinnamon says:

    This is almost impossible! I think I’d do a few color combos…
    #1 Grace Ruby Wine and Medium Aqua Essex Linen
    #2 Embroidery White and Squash Shot Cotton

  192. Gwynne says:

    I’d use A: Peck Stripe Aqua from the Enchino Fall collection B: Putty – Essex C: Bulles Brown – Cosmic Zoo D: Aloe Shot Cotton E: Squash Shot Cotton.

    I would use the “Buses Navy ~ Town & Country” and “Tiny Diamonds Red ~ Town & Country”. For the botton strip I would put the “Chinese Red 1480 ~ Kona Cottone”, and inside the bag the “Rain Drops Red ~ Town & Country”, just because I love dots!

    Great giveaway- thanks for the chance to win!

  205. Erin says:

    Wow! This is a fantastic looking purse! It is perfect for me, since I always have a hard time deciding on one colour theme! :)I love the fabric of the purse in the picture, so that made it much harder to figure out what I wanted to do.

    Fabric B – Pumpkin – Shot Cotton
    Fabric C – Empress Tea Rose – Tradewinds

  209. naelany says:

    Since it’s reversible, I’m going to assume that means you can use four fabrics? Well, five, I suppose. So hear goes

    London Red – Town and Country & Buses Red – Town and Country for one side.

    Hammock Stripe Wine – Gypsy Caravan & Gypsy Mums Wine – Gypsy Caraven for the other.

  223. Olivia says:

    I would use Aloha Cream Multi and Flipflop Cream Multi from Lucy’s Crab Shack line. I love the summery feel of it. I’d use the flowers for the top and the polka dots for the bottom. Then I would use Kite Ties Deep Sea for the button strap. Such a cute bag!

  224. Suzanne says:

    Peck Stripe Aqua

  225. jen says:

    I would use the La Paloma Tea ~ Folklorico and Fiesta Firecracker Natural ~ Folklorico

  226. I would use Bouquet Turquoise & Circles Park.

  238. Norma says:

    This was fun! I browse by print, by color, by designer and finally came up with: Beach Blanket Ocean Deep Sea, Tiny Diamonds Navy and Cite Indigo Tea. Maybe I should have a matching Kona Solid too. Beautiful Pattern!

  239. I would use Pearl Bracelet Coral ~ Outfoxed with the Charcoal Kona cotton. This is a super cute purse, by the way. Love it!

  240. Kristel says:

    That’s a terribly difficult question! Having changed my mind a half dozen times (give or take), I’m going back to my first instinct, which was the blue beach blanket print from Lucy’s Crab Shack with the blue dots from the same line for one side, and then the turquoise bouquet with the grey eyelets from Flea Market Fancy for the other side. It’s always hard to guess for sure without having the fabric in front of me, but I think the blues from the two lines look like they’d work together.

  241. laurel says:

    i would pick some fabrics from the petal pusher line – if it needed just two fabrics, i’d say the die cut floral brown and the tiny diamonds cherry – but if it needed a third, how cute would that line work brown be?

  242. Evelyn says:

    I’d pick fabrics from the Flea Market Fancy group – posies grey, bouquet grey, leaf dot red on one side, and posies turquiose, bouqet turquiose, and eyelet grey on the other. So pretty!

  243. Debi Kibbee says:

    I think that “Its a shore thing” Polka dot Navy & cabana stripe with the Kona Red would look so cute for summer and I love the bag. I just got a new yorkie puppy who is 2lbs (4 when full grown) and she would love to attend functions riding in such a cute bag!!!!

  244. Gwen Windham says:

    I’d choose Starcomb Stones ~ Curious Nature, Ornament Moroccan Red ~ Tradewinds and Tomato 7 ~ Kona Cotton… That was a tough choice– there are SO many pretty fabrics in your shop! 🙂 Thank you for the giveaway!

  245. Diane W says:

    I would use the Hello Pilgrim fabrics, in the green colorway. Thanks for the giveaway.

  246. Leslie D says:

    Love Empress Tea Rose, Lagoon solid and Palace Garden Vanilla!

  247. I’m so into grey these days, I imagine it in Denyse Schmidt’s Flea Market Fancy, in Leaf Dot and Eyelet, both in the grey colorway.

    I would make this bag with Aloha Deep Sea-Lucy’s Crab Shack and Solid Navy Kona cotton.

  254. Cheryl Korman says:

    I like bouquet gray & posted gray of the flea market line. They look great together.

  255. Tammy Nash says:

    I have always wanted a black and white purse and the perfect fabrics for it in my opinion would be ghastlie natural on the bottom and button strap with a ghastlie crewel natural for the top. Tammy

  256. Cynthia T. says:

    What a great pattern! I would have to choose the Town and Country. I love that squirrel, the trees and the dots. I think it would make a fun summer bag.

  257. Kate F. says:

    I’d use FMF Posies Gray and Eyelet Gray as the prints, and a Kona orange as the button closure accent– maybe Papaya or School Bus? I’m not sure which would complement the FMF best.

  258. Anna says:

    Would look great in Japanese print Framed Foliage & honeycomb dot orange for the base!

  259. Pat Kelley says:

    I love the pattern. I would use the patchwork wings chocolate from the Soul Garden fabric collection designed by Carolyn Gavin for P & B Textiles, with a coordinating solid. Thanks for the chance to win.

  266. Marsha McCreary says:

    Aloha Cream Multi ~ Lucy’s Crab Shack

  267. Liz A says:

    Numbers Games and Bouquet turquoise would be darling for this bag.

  268. Ellyn says:

    what a cute pattern! I’ve been eyeing up the new Lucy’s crab shack patterns so I think I’d go with an assortment of those. Fabric A: flip flop pink bikini, Fabric B: Aloha deep sea, Fabric C: cruiser orange cycle fabric D: aloha orange fabric E: flip flop cream multi

  269. Sherry Von Fumetti says:

    My choice would definitely be Alphabetty London Bus Red – Summersville and Typewriters Blue Ruby Star Shining.

  270. Gina says:

    I think anything from the Alegria line would be a perfect fit for this bag!

  271. Debbie says:

    I just got some vintage modern fabric and think that would be fun.

  272. Andie d says:

    Love the tradewinds collection. Especially the south pacific colorways!

  273. Barbie says:

    I’d use the little folks voile collection from Anna Maria Horner. The little link houses would make a sweet,whimsical bag for summer!

    Cute pattern. I would definitely use a neutral, solid linen (love linen) and then Flea Market Fancy (Turquoise Bouquet on the one side) along with Kona solid trim that complements the print. On the reversible side I would use a black and white print with solid linen.

  275. patricia says:

    This is a fun challenge. Please do more of these.

    Bottom fabric: Coral Pearl Bracelet from Lizzy House
    Top fabric: Shell Shot Cotton
    Button Flap: Kite Ties Ocean Lucy’s Crab Shack

    Interior: Pink Turquiose Laminate Kaffe Collective

  276. Debbie Lauzon says:

    I like rose trellis ivory and rose trellis red for the main 2 fabrics, with the red on the bottom pane. I like tiny diamonds cherry for the button tab.

  277. AngieSue says:

    I’d use Natasha Brown from the Crazy Love collection (Jennifer Paganelli) for the top — then coordinating sold brown and blue for the bottom and button tabs. I think it would look very sphisticated!

  278. Alyssa says:

    I would use Flea Market Fancy, in green or orange.

  279. mframe says:

    I would pick the Beach Blanket Ocean Deep Sea ~ Lucy’s Crab Shack with the Simple Dots Blue Bell ~ A Walk in the Woods

  280. christine says:

    top= Papel Bonito Natural ~ Folklorico
    bottom= Crossing Paths Persian PANEL ~ LouLouThi Needleworks
    lining= Circles Park ~ Modern Whimsy ORGANIC

  281. Sheree says:

    LOVE this pattern! I’d love to use the Flea Market Fancy Fabrics from Denyse Schmidt for this bag! I think I would choose Bouquet Turquoise for the top and handle, Posies Gray for the bottom, and Eyelet Gray for the button closure part. As for the inside, I would use the Leaf Dot Red for the top, Daisy Dots in Red for the Bottom, and use the same Eyelet Gray for the Button Closure part! Thank you! 🙂

  282. AnnaPK says:

    How about the turquoise bouquet from Flea Market Fancy and the Circles Park Modern Whimsy. I am not very good at choosing combos though, so Maybe the Flea Market Fancy and something like a linen.

  283. Marge Wearing says:

    Liv Sapphire
    Grace Peridot

  284. Gigi says:

    Hmm, I think I’ll use the petal pusher in brown. Very cute pattern and fabric combination 🙂

  285. Sumi says:

    It was really hard to select the fabric since you have such a great selection, but I would pick Wild Poppy Milk and Velvet Vine Stainless for one side and Line Work Brown and Dis-cut Floral Brown for the other.

    Thanks for the fun game!

  286. Kristen Powell says:

    I would love to use the Alegria line!! Blooms blue and Walk About

  287. Ellen M. says:

    I would use Cambay South Pacific Tradewinds and Ornament Malabar Green Tradewinds (both from Lily Ashbury) and trim it (for the tab) with Kona Azure 1009 (or whatever color matched the best). Thanks for the chance to win!

  288. Heather says:

    I ,adore the cloud 9 Bluebirds paired with Triangles blue and peacocks. T be practical I would use the bluebirds as the base to reduce the show of dirt on the bottom of the bag. This purse pattern looks fantastic .

  289. Cindy says:

    Love that pattern. I would have to choose something in black and white, like the Pezzy print by American Jane in black/white and a solid Kona black for the bottom. Perhaps some Pezzy in red for the trim.

  290. Ana Seixas says:

    Uau! What a great giveaway! I would choose turquoise because it’s my favorite color – turquoise posies and turquoise circles park. Have a lovely weekend : )

  291. Sue Preece says:

    La Paloma Tea – Folklorico and Ornament Malabar Green I think. Hard to be sure without seeing the fabrics next to each other but I think these would work together!

  292. Brie says:

    I love this pattern! I just pinned it yesterday! I am thinking Posies Grey and Eyelet Grey from Flea Market with maybe a solid orange for the button strip!!!

  293. Cat says:

    Oh, the lovely pattern !!
    I can see it in those 3 fabrics :
    – la paloma tea (folklorico)
    – kite ties ocean (lucy’s crab shak)
    – kona cotton in lapis 357
    MMM… Dreaming, now !
    Thanks !!

  294. Nancy Ratte says:

    I would use fabric from Lucy’s Crab shack – aloha orange and aloha cream, for the top parts and use the number games coordinating colors for the bottom of the bag, one in orangesicle, and the other in green. Cute bag, thanks.

  295. Joann says:

    I would use Vintage Modern!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  296. kelly jo says:

    I’d go for a Flea Market Fancy bag – Bouquet Red and Eyelet Pink (or maybe Seedpod Stripe in Pink!)

  297. Belinda says:

    I would use Bouquet Turquoise (Flea Market Fancy) Denise Schmidt for the base of the bag.
    Alphabetty London Bus Red – Summersville for the top and strap.
    And Peacock 1282 – Kona Cotton for the button tab.

    Looks like a great bag, I look forward to seeing more patterns from them.
    Belinda (

  298. Filomena says:

    I think I would probably do in “Pie Basket Fiesta ~ Hope Valley” and “Wall Flower Fiesta ~ Hope Valley”.
    But then, I also like “Summer Totem Bronze ~ LouLouThi VELVETEEN” and it go very nicely with either of the above. It’s a hard choice 😉

  299. Calinda says:

    I would have a crack at this lovely pattern using your Spider Blossom Evening Nightshade and Raven Lace Evening Nightshade!

  300. hungryhippie says:

    I live in London, so I would love the Red Buses fabric matched with something floral, perhaps Posies by Flea Market Fancy. Sounds mismatch-y, but I like a quirky-ness to my makes. Love O+S patterns, so I will have to check out SSS.
    Thanks much,
    natalie s.
    (a.k.a. hungryhippie)

    Really cute bag, and so versatile 🙂
    I’d use Nesting in gold and Cactus Hearts in yellow both from Chickadee for one side. For the other side it would be Wedding Ring in Spectrum and Stars Spectrum in Fuchsia both from the Quilt Blocks line. For the closure I’d use Magnolia Road in Spectrum also from Quilt Blocks.
    Fingers crossed!

  304. Tartankiwi says:

    I’d make it with Typewriters Neutral ~ Ruby Star Shining and Medium Aqua ~ Essex Linen/Cotton Blend on one side and Bulles Blue ~ Cosmic Zoo ORGANIC and Natural ~ Essex Linen/Cotton Blend on the other side.

  305. Carole S. says:

    I see this in Liv Stone Cocoon linen, with the bottom in chocolate Essex linen-cotton blend and the tab in sand or putty Essex linen-cotton blend. Looks like a great pattern!!

  306. Paula says:

    In the Clearing and Summer Totem Velveteen! I think it would look fabulous

  307. Christie says:

    Peck Stripe Aqua ~ Echino Fall 2011 and maybe Ruffles Cherry ~ St. Ives.

    Leaf Dot Red ~ Flea Market Fancy and a red Kona solid to go with it.

    I would prefer “Lucy´s Crab Shack” i Ocean

  310. Nicole says:

    I am always trying to act and work in a sustainable way in my everyday-and-working-life so I would choose the ‘Bulles Brown ~ Cosmic Zoo ORGANIC’ in combination with the ‘Organic Twill PFD Bleach White ~ Robert Kaufman’ which I would dye in a light blue color.
    Thanks for offering such a nice gift, I am a huge fan of your website.
    Greetings from Germany, Nicole

  311. Sue says:

    Love the idea the bag is just wonderful and would look good in any Flea Market Fancy fabric

    I would use Denim ~ Essex Yarn Dyed linnen (out of stock, what a pitty!) and Waving Tulips Blue ~ Petit Joli.

  313. Gill says:

    Great bag!
    I’d use Peacocks from the Alegria line and Squiggle in teal or maybe red!

  314. Sally Dutton says:

    HI. What a fab giveaway…I would certainly love to make this bag with Akeno black/Isso Ecco and Heart, Pot Plants Cherry – ST Ives, and Peck Stripe Aqua/Echino fall 2011. Just wishing…

  315. Olga says:

    I would probably use Tic Tac Check Shade Grey, Fall London Bus Red or Flip Flop Cream Multi.

  318. sangeetha dsouza says:

    Circles Park ~ Modern Whimsy ORGANIC
    Pearl Bracelet Aqua ~ Hello Pilgrim

  319. Tina says:

    I think it would be fun to go completely different,

    so one side: Trunks tops deep sea & Aloha cream multi (Lucy’s crab shack), (Beach bag)

    the other side: coven evening night shade & Raven Lace evening (sun-down cocktail bag)


  320. Laura says:

    I just found the perfect fabric for my friend’s apron! ack! Amazing *dies* She wanted sugar skulls on it, but I think Papel Bonito Natural ~ Folklorico is even better. *swoons*

    Sorry up too late and full of caffeine.

    I would be torn between choosing

    La Paloma Tea ~ Folklorico for the top and Flip Flop Cream Multi ~ Lucy’s Crab Shack for the bottom with maybe Kite Ties Ocean ~ Lucy’s Crab Shack for the stripe? or maybe a solid blue or red? hrm…


    Bouquet Turquoise ~ Flea Market Fancy for the top and Beach Blanket Ocean Deep Sea ~ Lucy’s Crab Shack for the bottom, with Flip Flop Pink Bikini ~ Lucy’s Crab Shack for the middle stripe.

    OR I COULD DO BOTH! wow. my brain just (metaphorically) exploded. I just noticed it was reversible. *more swoon*

  321. Christiane says:

    The choice is to difficult…
    Beach Blanket Deep Sea – Lucys Crab Shack
    Alphabetty in Coal – Summersville
    Brush Strokes in Teal – Summersville
    Akeno Black ~ Isso Ecco & Heart Linen
    I love the idea of a reversible bag, I just own too many bags because I love the choice before I go out.. Thanks for the chance to win!

  322. Carol says:

    That is certainly a must have pattern, great bag for summer!
    The fabrics I would choose:
    1. Lucy crab Shack Canvas- Aloha Deep Sea
    2. Lucy Crab Shack Canvas – Cruiser Cream Deep Sea
    3. Flip Flop Deep Sea

  323. Ooo pretty! i would definitely choose Leaf Dot Red and La Paloma Black.

  324. Bruinbr says:

    Fun! I’d choose Sweetwater’s Lucy’s crab shack prints: Trunks tops cream, Kite ties deep sea, aloha cream multi, Cruiser cream deep sea, and Number games ocean.

  325. CheezyK says:

    So many fabulous fabrics to choose from but I think I’d keep it simple with “La Paloma Tea ~ Folklorico” and some co-ordinating solids.

  326. Valerie Boudier says:

    I’d choose Bouquet turquoise – Flea Market fancy and Circle Park – Modern Whimsy

  327. Chloe says:

    I would use eyelet grey from flea market fancy for the top, posies grey for the bottom and a solid orange or red to pick out the posies colour for the strap 🙂

  328. Galatina says:

    I’d love to make this for a friend with Elephants red/navy for the base, star flower moroccan red tradewinds for the main, Scandi London Bus Red Summersville for the inside & a contrast blue for the tag. If it was for me I’d go for ploral blues – too difficult to choose.

  329. Adrienne says:

    Such a cute pattern!

    I’d use a natural linen or hemp for the bottom portion; “Vintage Flowers Green ~ Ruby Star Shining” and “Souris Verte ~ Cosmic Zoo ORGANIC” for a very split personality purse! lol

  330. MelodyJ says:

    I would use Velvet Wine Grape-Gypsy Caravan.
