paper n stitch – Congratulations! - A daily dose of handmade, design, and style inspiration

First a hike to find the perfect marshmallow stick. Then I love sittin by a campfire with good friends, telling stories, laughing and eating toasted marshmallows.

Erin C.

Thinking about all the things I could do with that Camp Series Fabric (especially the mini green version). I love camping in our ’63 Airstream!


I think my last comment got lost when our internet connection was cut for a minite or so – so I’d like to re-enter:

Leanne’s works are so sweet and I already faved her red tractor tea towels there. I have never been to camping but hopefully her camping tea towels will lead to me to!

Thanks for sharing.


I have never gone camping but would love to, maybe with these sweet Tea Towel, who knows!

Thanks for inroducing Leanne’s works. I loved loved the Red Tractor Linen Tea Towel at her Etsy store!


My least favorite part of camping is the bugs!


I like the canvas totes – super adorable.


My favorite part of camping is having a meal cooked over a fire, because usually you are so tired and hungry by the time it’s done it is the best meal ever. My least favorite is not being able to bath – I feel super yucky.


The Tractor Tote is a favorite!

Shannon Finer

leave favorite: lack of bathrooms or if they have them, horribly dirty bathrooms!!! and if you have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. YIKES!

favorite: when the sun sets and you’re sitting around the campfire and laughing and singing songs and making smores and drinking hot cocoa and have amazing talks with amazing people and you realize that this is a moment you’ll never forget.

loved all of your things..but my favorites are the camper linen towel tea set and the house next door tote! so cute!! you’re featured here: junenicole.blogspot.com


I tweeted.



Least favourite part of camping : The deadly mosquitoes! They bite and bite until my skin has lots of red dots!


I love the Large Canvas Tote – House Next Door – Blue


Favorite thing about camping – sleeping outside!

Least favorite thing about camping – THE BATHROOMS (or lack thereof!).

Believe it or not, I actually like the Camp Tea Towel Series the best!!! Thanks for the giveaway!


Beyond the s’mores,(and you can make them quite easily over a candle!) there’s nothing I like about camping! Lots not to like though, outhouse bathrooms, bugs, fire bans, wasps that just.won’t.quit. Love the ‘puppy love’ tea towel!





I really liked the great outdoors fabric, but I can’t decide on only one color 😉


My favorite thing about camping is that my boyfriend and I get to spend quality time together, without mobile phones..and no television to watch football on..!!


The best part of camping, NO PHONES!!
The worst part, BUGS!


Really love Large Canvas Tote – House Next Door – Blue



i tweet it too! 🙂


My favorite thing about camping is the fire. It makes everything so much more exciting- all stories, even non-scary, are way better by firelight. Plus you can make smores!

Tina W

My favorite is the tractor tote.

Tina W

The Hand Printed – Linen Tea Towel – Red Tractor is soo cool

Please include me in the giveaway. I love tea towels. There are so many interesting prints. I like My Heart is Yours Tea Towel and also the tractor. I camped out many time with the Girl Scouts. I’ve never done it as an adult. I loved being in the woods and smelling the trees. The sounds and the peace is wonderful. Plus the smores are wonderful. The worse part is the bugs. I have tweeted about this contest. http://Twitter.com/makeupgirl21. Thank you.


My least favorite part of camping is the lack of civilized restroom accomodations (in some cases).


I love the Puppy Love Tea Towel. We have a Westie of our own. (The dog on the towel might be a Scottie, I guess.)


Tweet! http://twitter.com/ktkatherine/status/3780854613


My least favorite part of camping is the little to no showering. I’m a clean myself every day kind of girl! 🙂


I love her Hand Printed – Linen Tea Towel – My Heart is Yours! Adorable!


Now.. because I want new tea towels!!!.. on to the Camping.. I love being outdoors, the smells and the quiet at night, but don’t go camping any more- too old to tote all the stuff and then wake up all stiff from sleeping on the ground and tote it out.. But the worst part was always putting things away after having all that fun!! cooking over the open fire, gathering berries, keeping the beer cold in the stream.. All good!!


I love Leanne’s block prints!!. Looks like some Christmas presents to me!! I thought the puppy love dish towel was my favorite until I spied the tractor!!! I grew up in a farm machine dealer family and love all the old farm machines, emplements and barns!!


My favorite part of camping is being away from the city and in the fresh air. Not favorite part of camping is the bugs and critters!

Elaine R

Love the My Heart Is Yours Linen Tea Towels-such a pretty design.

Elaine R

My favorite thing about camping is: We always take the ATV’s along and go riding as a family, along with many friends. It’s a great way to meet friends and make new friends.

Worst part: ?

Also really love this tote bag:
Large Canvas Tote – House Next Door – Blue

Here is our post directing people to the giveaway!

april brooks

My absolutely LOVE camping! We go to a different place every summer, we’ve been to South East Missouri (Sam Baker State Park), Stockton Lake in Missouri, South Dakota, Colorado, Arkansas, and lots of other places in Missouri (where we’re from). So I guess that is my favorite part of camping– getting to experience living with nature in different places!


I like camping if there are real bathrooms I can use! No port a potty or just the woods please.

april brooks

I love the tractor fabric!

april brooks

Love the Great Outdoors blue Camp fabric! So cute!


Okay, so I’m kind of a camping poser, as I’ve only stayed in cabins and never quite ‘roughed it,’ but I lovelovelove a good bonfire and some roasted marshmallows!

Lindsay {Shrimp}

I love the Custom House Portrait set – what a great gift that would make for a new homeowner!

Lindsay {Shrimp}

I love the Custom House Portrait. Those are awesome gifts. I know a lot of people who would love those!

I love this Linen Tea Towel – Puppy Love 🙂 so cute


Thanks very much…..Cindi


I don’t like communal showers while camping. If there are individual stalls, then I am just fine.
Thanks, Cindi


I love her work! Two other of her creations that I adore are the Large Canvas Tote-Camper-Orange and the
Tea Towel/ Red Tractor.
Many thanks, Cindi


I love the Baby Camper T-shirt!

I’m going to tweet you ;o) (http://twitter.com/daisyfleurx)

Fav bit of camping – sitting around the fire eating, drinking & chatting
Worst bit – waking up really hot because you’ve piled on all your layers last night when it was cold….


Ooh, here’s my fav item. That green is divine! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29783132

My favorite part of camping is just being outdoors and living life in its most basic form. Bliss!

Least favorite is bugs. Ugh!

And here’s my tweet – http://twitter.com/modernemotive/status/3736012549



i tweeted the giveaway this morning, too 😉


lesley [smidgebox designs]

and my favourite part of camping would be a beachy campfire! friends and family roasting treats, singing, playing around a campfire! nothing better to me!

thanks for the great giveaway! yay leanne!


My favorite part about camping is waking up to the aroma of fresh brewed coffee. Although, I’m a tea drinker, I love the smell of coffee in the morning when we are out camping.


Renee G

I love the hand printed linen tea towel — red tractor. I know my husband would be crazy about one of these.

Renee G

what a beautiful shop! i love the fabrics! such a lovely camping motif!


my favorite part of camping is sitting around the campfire and making s’mores, and staying up all night talking with flashlights in your tent. :]


I like the tractor fabric!


My least favorite part is how much stuff you have to haul with you! My favorite part is the togetherness.


I love all the fabrics in the fat quarters. How fun.


My favorite part is the food! Smores! Hobo dinner! Anything you can roast on a stick! The smell of the campfire cooking your dinner is bliss!

Jenna Z

Red Tractors Linen Tea Towel! Being a country girl, I love this!

Jenna Z

I hate the bugs but I love the campfires!


I really love the tractor fabric. I think I would love pijamas made out of that fabric 🙂


my favorite thing about camping: how it brings groups of people together and tends to highlight each person’s strengths and know-how.

least favorite thing: dirt under my fingernails!

kristen k.

very pretty things in this shop…my favorites are the My Heart is Yours tea towel, the House Next Door fabric, and the custom house tea towels. so colorful and simple!

kristen k.

My favorite part of camping is the smell of a bonfire. There is nothing in the city that can equal the smell of smoke and nature.

My least favorite part? Lack of decent washroom facilities. Sorry, but I have much love and respect for indoor plumbing!


Love the Camper – Camp Series- Original Fabric- Fat Quarter. The colors are wonderful and the pattern is too cute!


I love camping because you refuse many many usual materials you use everyday, become natural as born and so get relaxed, totally.


I absolutely love the camper print! It looks just like the camper that my fiance just brought home from his grandparent’s in Pennsylvania! The thing I love most about camping is the fishing I get to do while I’m outdoors!


Lovely giveaway my fingers are crossed. I love the house portrait tea towel sooo pretty . Helen


My favourite thing about camping is taking my Nephew to places he’s never been. Get him out of the city and away from his mom. Let him be a little boy. We lay under trees, catch frogs, photograph mushrooms at his request, and I teach him the basics of life. Camping is a priviledge that some can only hope for.


i loved the camper print fabric so much that i had to buy it!
also, my favorite part about camping is the smell of the campfire.


My husband and I (along with 3 dogs and a love bird) go camping at least every 2 months around Florida. It is only time I actually sit and do nothing. So I guess that is my favorite thing about camping…doing nothing.


how cute is red tractor tea towel & tote? in love!
my camping high & low.
high would be bonfires.& smores. mmmmm.
my camping low is waking up in the hot hot tent in the morning!


anna d.

i LOVE camping…everything about it. i guess my favorite part is hanging out with my friends in the woods, acting like we’re at summer camp and dreading going back home.


My favorite part about camping is the food! It always seems to taste better when you haven’t showered in three days…


1) I like her My Heart is Yours tea towel. This would make a nice gift for my Grandmother whose birthday falls around Valentine’s Day.

2) The best part about camping is:

Eating a stove-cooked meal after a long day of hiking, watching the sunset, sitting around the campfire talking or making music, and looking up at the stars.

It fills you with love for life.

Great giveaway!

Awee they are all so cute! I love the Large Canvas Tote – Camper – Orange 🙂

I have lots of favorite things about camping. Being able to see the stars so clearly, sitting around a campfire drinking a beer, being in nature. Great giveaway, those tea towels are super cute.


I love the tractors, and the camping set!!!


OMG! I love the Camper Baby T-shirt! I wish one of my camping friends was having a baby!!!


My favorite part of camping is the food! When I go with my whole family, my dad makes the most spectacular campfire meals…my favorite is omelets!


tweeted here:


Least favorite thing about camping – trying not to pee on poison oak/ivy. Favorite thing is cooking on the fire.


favorite part of camping – the full embrace and being in nature. all five senses enjoying it.
least favorite – MOSQUITOs. how i wish they didn’t care for me!!


custom house on a tea towel?! bliss. amazing.


My favourite thing about camping is, that you can leave civilisation behind, in a cultural sense as well. And it is a very good and effective way of discovering others and yourself: how you (and others) react in situations, when civilisation (like comfort, towns etc) are not there to help you.

My least favourite thing about camping is when insects try to sleep with me :-).


Gorgeous shop, I love it!
My fave item is the tractor tea towel – so funny!


But! my favorite over at Leann’s is the tractor printed items. It reminds me of my parents ranch land.

Cheryl O

The worst part about camping is packing and unpacking. Oh, to be a kid again where all you have to do is show up and stay out of the way. 🙂

Those towels are too cute!

Cheryl O

we love to camp, but like to do it in comfort 😉 cushy mattress, nice linens, good food…so usually it’s great! my least fave part is the inevitable dampness you feel when camping in the pacific northwest, whether it’s raining or not.

lesley [smidgebox designs]

Love Leanne Graeff’s shop! so sweet. i think my fave is the camper original fabric, from the camp series. it is awesome, i can imagine so many cute things to make from it!!

Love this work! I checked out the shop, and I adore the cap original fabrics! I would love to make pillows out of the fabric with the little campers!
My favorite part of camping is the smell. I know it’s weird, but tents and sleeping bags, lifejackets- they have a nostalgic scent to me. And I adore the smell of a campfire.
I also tweeted: http://twitter.com/rachelballard

Rachel B.

My favorite part of camping is s’mores…I believe the reason why is obvious. Love these tea towels!
