Help!! I Need some suggestions!

My 5ooth post will be coming up next month and I'd like to do a giveaway. Any suggestions for that??? Crocheted Item, tote bags, coasters, something I've made before for a swap????? Take a look at what I have for sell in my shops and give me an idea. Here is the link to see what I have in all 3 shops
Please give me some suggestions because I'd like to give something away that people really would like to have.

Also, I bought these Michael Miller fabrics on Ebay last week. I love the colors!!! What should I make out of them. I have a yard of the top piece and 1/2 yard of the other 3. Tote bags? Pillows? What do you think? This fabric is a little more expensive than I usually buy, but I love Michael Miller fabrics and I couldn't resist.

Right now I'm just content with taking these fabric pieces out and gazing at them, but I suppose I should eventually make something out of them.

Thanks for your suggestions!!

I love the Michael Miller fabrics! Maybe they could be used in bits and pieces in some kind of small wall hangings? That way you can get the most out of the pieces you have and incorporate them with other things!

Since Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are around the corner- you can sew some dinner napkins. Or crochet some leaf coasters? A candle mat. Gimme an email if you need ideas! Flickr is full of Inspirations too! Something like that?

Sherry: Anything would be wonderful. The fabric is lovely, perhaps just giving it away and someone could make what they want. Your handmade items are beautiful and there is always the thought to find an Etsy or ArtFire shop owner that would donate something small for advertising! So many things, you are so talented, I can't wait to see what you come up with!

The fabrics are lovely Sherry. I especially love the bird cage one. I loved the "Circus" banner you made for me and the crocheted chicken egg cosy. I think anybody would love to win something like that.
