Countdown to Birthday give-a-way

Presents? Yes, presents. We are having a birthday give-away.

Pictured below are the two items for the give-away.

Carol made the first out of felted wool, stitched layers together with some padding in the center, and embroidered a die cut flower on top.

The heart measures 6 1/2" from top to bottom.

Elizabeth's gift is a set of sweater felted pieces:

These 20 felted wool sweater pieces are a little over 4x5 inches each.
The four felt flowers are 2 inches each
These are all cut up from wool sweaters
that have been washed in hot water to felt.
The plan is: Make a comment on any post from this one (July 22) through Sunday (July 26), and we will draw 2 numbers on Monday. We will post the winners on Tuesday (July 28). Please be sure your email is available so that we can contact you.

  1. Oh my goodness - what yummy gifts! That heart is simply precious! I may need to try my hand at felting. It's gorgeous, and I've not ever tried it!


  2. I want 'em! I want 'em! I want 'em all! I love the little heart, Carol. And, Betty, so many pretty little felted squares! Carol, I liked how you photographed it hanging from a tree... Such pretties. I still haven't figured out how to submit comments any other way than annonymous. -Becky (

  3. I figured out how to post comments now like a normal fan! I love the photographs of the presents. -becky

  4. The heart is just lovely! And I have to agree with Heather, the felted sweater pieces are, well, yummy! (seriously, the exact same word came to my mind when I saw the photos - to funny!)

  5. What a lovely giveaway! You two are just so sweet. :) I've been enjoying your blog...I'm glad you finally got around to starting one.

  6. You ladies have the most beautiful give aways! I love your craftiness. I am so glad I found your blog and your friendship! Twyla

  7. I just love the felted wool! Happy Birthday!

  8. I would love to win these wonderful felt treasures! The heart with the flower is absolutely charming. And to receive felted wool that I didn't have to felt myself would be tiptop. My poor washer would be happy too! I just can't lose because I am in the Silver Bella ornament swap with you and look forward to meeting you in person in November.

  9. I love all your work and your supply of wool sweaters that you felt. I keep looking at all the goodwills, etc but have no luck. Maybe CA is not exactly a sweater friendly environment. Our family does not wear very many either.


  10. Pretty! This is going to be a fun swap!
