Three Little Owls Giveaway...

*Hooray* It's Pip's 3rd bloggy birthday this week. Sheesh - three years of sharing craft, inspiration and all round niceness, of which I have been happily reading for about one. Pip is celebrating giveaways today! I have never held one but have always wanted to. Who doesn't love to recieve things just because?!

I am giving away these 3 (keeping with the theme) sweet owls handmade by me in 2008 when I first became interested in softie making.

I still adore them, but sadly all three currently live in a cardboard box in a cupboard. I would like them to have good homes, where they will be seen, fly free and perhaps be loved by a child (or adult). They were made with love using nice things like...

  • retro buttons
  • thrifted fabric from 1) velour cushions and 2) curtains
  • doilies
  • thrifted ric-rac
  • felt

Although I hate to split up the parliament, I will be giving away one owl to three different readers. So really .... you have 3 chances to win!

All you have to do is... leave me a comment on this here post. I will be choosing the THREE winners on Saturday the 5th of December (at approx 8pm) and will be posting the following week. Posting within Australia only, sorry international visitors! Oh, don't forget to leave your email address so I can contact you if your one of the lucky three winners.

Yikes, I am a tad excited :)

Good luck! x

  1. Yay! I'm excited too... they're adorable owls. My children would love them to pieces (possibly quite literally) but don't worry I'll protect the owl from them!
    Thanks for the chance to win.
