New Patterns and a Giveaway!!

Dear Readers!!

It is very late and my hubby and I have been working most of the night to finish up three new patterns that will be available in my shop tomorrow.  I'm super excited about these as I've had many requests for them in the past and I am happy to finally make them available. 

This is the Petal Bear pattern.  It'll include Bunny, Kitten, Bear and Puppy ears, as well as all the accessories - cookies, a little book, a fish and bird friend and a sweet little beaded felt flower for adornment.

This pattern is very easy and I've made it especially for those of you who would love to try a mohair project, but think it might be quite daunting.  Well, it's not!!  And I can assure you of that!

I share tips on cutting the mohair and sewing it with a sturdy combination stitch that will keep your bear looking good for years to come.  Included are easy to follow instructions and  illustrations to guide you along the way.

Best of all, they are so sweet, everyone you know will want one!

These are the Scaries.  Quite possibly the kookiest things I've ever made!  But, oh-so-much fun to do!!  If you have a quirky imagination, these are for you!

These can be made into hanging ornaments, brooches, or just mini characters.

Perfect for Halloween!

And, lastly, the Little Elephant pattern.  These are a little more advanced, though still easy to follow even if you are a beginner.

I just love these - They are unbearably cute and I think they might just be my favourites of all!

This pattern uses a combination of mohair, fabric and hand woven felt.  I've used cotton lace, a tiny silver charm and a beaded felt hair flower as a finishing touch for them. 

For a special touch, I've embroidered a little beaded daisy onto the pink elephant's foot pad and appliqued tiny fabric patches onto the foot pad of the yellow ellie.

Now for the best part!!!  I will be giving away SIX patterns.  To enter, please leave your name and the pattern you would choose if your name came up in the draw.  I will hold the draw on Wednesday, July 13.

Best of luck to you all :)!!
