Learning Laboratory: Emma Sews + SMS giveaway =)

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered! Congratulations to the winners: Cynthia, Shola, and TheBargainBabe!

Welcome, Sew, Mama, Sew! visitors! Instructions for entering my giveaway of the pieces and instructions to make a small animal like those pictured below are at the bottom of this post. While you’re here, you might also want to check out my free downloads, which include patterns for a monster children can decorate and felt food.

Emma's hand-sewn dog

Emma’s sewing has really taken off since she made her duck! She made this duck and chicken (see below) with very minimal help from me. I cut out the pieces, threaded the needle, and tied the knots, but that was it.

She even added the tail to this puppy – it wasn’t part of my original design! She made the chicken in one day, while listening to Little House On The Prairie CD that we borrowed from the library!

She has a few more animals cut out, just waiting to be sewn up. They are all based off of the ones I saw in this post at Little Family Fun.

As mentioned in the title, This post is my contribution to the Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway Day! I will send a kit with your choice of pieces for a duck, chicken, or dog to THREE winners, anywhere in the world. The kit will have the felt pieces cut out (colors may vary slightly from those pictured); you have to provide the needle, thread, and fiberfill stuffing. This is a great way to learn sewing, so if you know someone who wants to learn how to sew, this is a great place to start! To enter, just leave a comment saying:

  • you’d love to be entered AND
  • which animal you would pick.

You can have two extra entries if you link a post up to my Learning Laboratory linky (see below) – the post can be new or old; it just needs to be about something someone learned because they wanted to! Be sure to let me know in your comment that you linked up!

This giveaway runs through May 25th, when a winner will be chosen using random.org.
