It seems like ages since I created anything with fabric, but I was delighted when Mollie Makes approached me to make something new for a future book, to be entitled "Feathered Friends".
And nearly 12 months later, here it is!!
And nearly 12 months later, here it is!!
It contains over 20 projects with clear step-by-step instructions.....
....featuring crochet, sewing, knitting and more!
And here is my little contribution!
The book is published by Collins & Brown and is available here, but I have a copy to give away!!
And I am going to offer a separate prize - the prototype I made!
Who's a pretty boy then?!
To be in with a chance of winning either the book or the finished parrot, all you have to do is leave a comment underneath. I will announce the winners on Saturday 22nd June. Good luck everyone!
Ooh would love to win either!ReplyDelete
It looks like another fantastic book ~ I'd love to be entered into your giveaway please and wouldn't mind either prize, although if I had to choose it would have to be the parrot! :O)xxReplyDelete
Oh Kirsty, that bird! I'd love to win either but we're expecting our first baby and I'm hoping to do the room in a jungle/safari 'theme' (I hate that word) and he would just fit right in! I was going to contact you about a mobile anyway!ReplyDelete
Ps well done on the book, fantastic!
I love your bird!ReplyDelete
Great giveaways - I'd be thrilled to win either!
Ooh!! The book (and bird) looks great!! How exciting!ReplyDelete
wow, fab book and even fabber birdie!ReplyDelete
i would love to own either - but the birdie would look lovely in my kitchen!ReplyDelete
He he he.... He's lovely. Both he & the phrase Feathered Friends reminds me of Quentin Blake's 'Cockaoos' a book that my daughter absolutely loved when she was little. I have a feeling she'd adore this chap too. :)ReplyDelete
Pieces of eight, pieces of eight...ReplyDelete
Lush. Of course!
So gorgeous!! Would be delighted to win either, what a great giveaway. xReplyDelete

The book is wonderful - my copy arrived yesterday as I was given a heads up by the Mollie Makes newsletter. Your parrot is definitely on the to-do list, if I'm not lucky enough to win it. Or perhaps I should do several in different colours to keep each other company?!ReplyDelete
Great idea! Make sure you show me a picture if you do get around to it!Delete
count me in Kirsty please - yes the driftwood has taken over - no paper collage either but they are labour intensive and Steve can't do his collecting bit!!!!ReplyDelete
