Tutorial: Sun and Cloud ornament

I sketched this little sun and cloud ornament out a few years ago but for some reason I never got around to sewing it up and creating the tutorial until recently.

I love working with felt and love how this sun and cloud ornament turned out. I think it could even work great as a patch. I’ll be stitching up another to use as a patch as soon as I decide what to put a patch on, ha.

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day: Win a cupcake ornament!

I love making ornaments, especially with felt. I had a few left over from my craft sale this past weekend and have started listing some in my Etsy shop but I thought I would give one away as part of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day!

Up for grabs is this cute cupcake ornament! Giveaway is now over but pattern details are below if you would like to make one yourself, or contact me through my Etsy shop if you’d like to purchase one. ūüôā

It was completely hand-stitched using wool blend felt that I purchased from Prairie Point Junction. The pattern I used is the cupcake ornament from the Festive Felties* set contributed to the latest One Thimble Magazine* by Lauren of Molly and Mama. I actually tested the Festive Felties set so I had received the pattern originally for free. It measures about 3 1/2″ high.

If you’re interested in making one yourself, you should definitely pick up the pattern. The set also includes a mouse and a reindeer. They’re¬†so cute, and if you love making felt ornaments as much as I do you’ll enjoy making them. Or you could always purchase one of the other two cupcake ornaments I have leftover in my shop ūüėõ OR better yet, you can win the one pictured above by commenting on this post. Be sure to click to enter through Rafflecopter as well, that way I’m sure to have an email address that I can contact you at.

The giveaway is open until Sunday, December 13th at midnight EST. I will contact the winner by email Monday. Since as per the Sew Mama Sew rules this needs to be mailed out by Friday, December 18th if I don’t hear back from the winner within 24 hours, I will redraw for a new winner. Giveaway is open internationally.

Don’t forget to check all the other giveaways happening for Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day!

Let me know in the comments who you’ll be giving the cupcake ornament to (or if you’ll be keeping it for yourself!)

UPDATE DECEMBER 16, 2015: The winner of the cupcake is Libby J. Thank you all for participating! I wish I was able to¬†give you all a cupcake ornament but the shipping fees alone would bankrupt me! I loved reading your responses. I especially loved the ones from people saying they’d be selfish and keep the ornament for themself! Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and have a great 2016!

P.S. If you’re purchasing on Etsy (for anything¬†really) don’t forget to use Ebates. You can get cash back on all purchases on Etsy, usually 1% but sometimes they run specials and it’s more. If you don’t already have an account you can sign up here if you’re in the US: Ebates.com*¬†or here if you’re in Canada:¬†Ebates.ca*. (Or do both like me) In the past year I’ve earned back roughly $50, and it probably would have been more but I have a bad habit of forgetting to click my links first, lol. Don’t be like me!

Handmaiden’s Cottage Christmas Stocking + Giveaway!

Handmaiden's contest details

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Ok well, sorta, maybe, not really. We had a light dusting of snow a couple days ago but otherwise nothing. I also don’t tend to decorate the house for Christmas until after my birthday (which is in a couple days), so I lied, it doesn’t really look like Christmas yet around here. BUT I have made a new Christmas stocking! Continue reading “Handmaiden’s Cottage Christmas Stocking + Giveaway!”
