It's that time of year again! Yes, it's Sew Mama Sew's semi-annual Giveaway Day!
For those of you who have never participated, it is a day (well, actually a whole week!) where lots of crafty blogs get together to give away finished projects, craft supplies, fabric, books and all sorts of fun goodies!
Get your giveaway fingers ready to type, because there are hundreds of giveaways on these lists here and here! (Believe me, I will be entering as many as I have time for... I just can't resist the chance to win fun stuff!)
I have decided to participate again this year (I gave away a Christmas apron last year) by giving away a finished project. It is kind of a silly thing, but I decided to give away a turkey! And a pumpkin pie!
Well, they are not real.. but they are fun because they are made from felt! I got the bug to make my daughter a felt turkey before Thanksgiving (from this free pattern from Charming Doodle) and I had the crazy idea to make as many as I had felt for... that meant I made FOUR turkeys! And then I decided she needed some pumpkin pie to go with her turkey (free pattern here!), so I made THREE pieces of pumpkin pie!
When my felt holiday meals were completed, I wasn't quite sure what to do with all my extras, so I decided to give some away!
These are perfect for kids' imaginative play, especially if they have a play kitchen or dishes. They are also kind of fun to set around during the holidays as a decoration/conversation piece.
* One person will win both a felt turkey AND a piece of felt pumpkin pie sewed up by yours truly.
* This contest is open to both U.S. and international friends.
* You are not required to follow my blog to enter, though I would love it if you took some time to look around!
* The contest will be open from Monday, December 8 through Friday, December 12, after which time I will select and contact a winner. If the winner does not reply to my email within 48 hours, I will select a new winner.
So how to you enter? Well, I thought it would be fun to have a little contest. You see, I've been collecting buckets of pecans from my FIVE backyard pecan trees. (Yes, I'll be cracking nuts all winter long.) The person who can most closely guess the number of nuts in this ice cream bucket full of pecans above will be the winner. Happy guessing! :)
