We have a winner!!!

Posted by on 23 Jan 2009 | Tagged as: animal crafts, contest, winter

Ellen, you guessed it!  I am making the animals from Jan Brett’s The Mitten

Our daughter has always loved books. Simply opening a book could stop a complete screaming fit from the time she was 2 months old, and the love continues. Much to our dismay, our little man has never shown much interest in books. Until now. He loves The Mitten!

His little still-not-talking self drags me to the couch by my pants leg multiple times a day, demanding a reading. And because we are so happy about his newly found book love, I think he deserves a sweet little critter-filled mitten of his very own!

I was just thinking last night that I wasn’t sure I would be able to guess it, and we’re reading the book multiple times a day!  I’m impressed, Ellen, and I’m sure your mom will be proud!  A little felted bunny will be on his way to Korea next week!  Pretty convenient, since I already need to send you a very belated package!

I’ll keep posting the critters as I finish them, so keep checking back!

A sneak peek and a little contest

I’ve been working on a Valentine’s Day present for the little man, who is now 18 months old. There are quite a few parts to it, and I thought I would see how many parts I’ll have to post before someone guesses what I’m up to.  Keep checking back, and when you’re ready to guess, just leave a comment.  The winner will receive a little felted bunny.

I won’t be doing a tutorial for this, since I’m using the instructions from this wonderful book for some of the components.

Here’s the first clue. (Though if you can guess it already, you’re a mind reader!  I’m expecting people to need at least three or four clues.)
