Big Little Felt Universe - It's Giveaway Day!

** This giveaway is now closed. The winner is Jess! Look out for an email from me! :) **

Guess what, friends? It's giveaway day again!


Let's join the fun, shall we? This week I'm giving away a copy of Big Little Felt Universe! It's full of patterns for making felt toys for your favorite littles.


I used the book to make the fire from the camping set for B's first birthday (you can get a peek at it here). The instructions were great and I love how it turned out... but I learned that I do not have the patience or commitment for hand sewing and I haven't touched the book since. So I figured I would pass it on to someone who would actually put it to good use!


You could make a grill set just in time for summer!


One of my favorite things about this book is that it has so many ideas for little boys!


How to Enter:

  • Leave a comment & fill out the Rafflecopter form! In your comment, tell me your favorite gift for a little boy - either homemade or purchased. Then be sure to fill out the Rafflecopter form telling me you did! There are a couple bonus entry opportunities in there too. :)
