~~May Giveaway Day~~My First Giveaway!

SewMamaSew is hosting May Giveaway Day Monday May 17th. 
This is my very first giveaway and I am pleased to offer two of my handmade projects to one lucky person.  You have four opportunities to win this lovely wool felt pin/brooch and a wool felt pincushion.
This pin is a deep rosy pink flower pin with green leaves made from recycled sweater felted wool, white vintage buttons as the center. Measures 3" in diameter without leaves.  Here it is pictured pinned to a black felted handbag, but it would also look good on a suit or a sweater or a coat.
And now for the cool pincushion!  Makes a great addition to your sewing room or would be great to give as a gift to your sewing/crafting friends and family members.
Spring green and cornflower blue (not sure why but these photos don't reflect the true beautiful cornflower blue), this wool felt pincushion is made from recycled wool felted sweaters. Cherry on top is made from wool roving, wet felted. The pincushion measures approximately 3.75 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide.
Here's how to win:
1. Enter by going to my etsy shop WoolenWondersbyEllen and enter a blog comment to tell me which was your favorite item.
2. Favorite my etsy shop for another entry, enter a blog comment to tell me you favorited me.
3. Become a follower of my blog and enter a comment to tell me that you are now a follower.
4. An additional blog comment telling me which is your favorite flower earns you one more chance to win!
That's four chances to win!

I will put each entry into a hat (or a bowl or maybe a paper bag or well, you get the idea!) and have my 2 year old niece Elena draw the lucky winner! That is unless I can figure out how to use an online random drawing process!
You can leave comments until May 20 at 9 pm CST and I will announce and contact the winners Thursday night.
I will ship internationally so don't let that stop you from entering!
The winner will have their package shipped Saturday morning.

The pincushion caught my eye because I have been wanting one of those--the ones in the store are so soft and yet hard at the same time---maybe I'm crazy to think that!!! But you know what I mean, I hope! Yours is so pretty!

I like both the kitten border fabric and the apron pattern from Simplicity. Love your pincushions, too.

Joanna said...

Okay, question number four is a hard one for me because I love flowers. I just planted dahlias this week, but I love zinnias, iris, tulips, roses, daisies, daffodils, etc., etc.

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

I love those! My favorite thing in the shop is the orange flower...it would look so nice with the giveaway flower! I think I might have a hard time keeping the cupcake for myself...my daughter will surely want to have it all to herself!

dozens of people have probably told you this, but I use www.random.org for a number generator!

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

I love so many flowers, but I'm rather obsessed with rhododendrons and hydrangeas...
