freebie day

That's right, freebie days are back :-)
But first, I need to show you what I achieved yesterday....

It was a cupcake day ::



Big fat fluffy cupcakes ::


Flat cupcakes ::


and ...drum roll please.... *new* fabric patterned cupcakes :-)
two photos of these because I love how these turned out !

Each one is made of felt and fabric and hand-stitched together and then decorated with fantastic buttons, I had such fun picking the buttons! (John came home from the garage whilst I was doing this and we were chatting away and at one point I said 'I'm not talking to you I'm talking to my buttons'. Sometimes I worry myself!!)

and now for :: freebie day ::

I wanted to make this freebie a little special to say thank you to my lovely blog readers for sticking with me while I have been a bit sparse in the blogging front, all the lovely comments I receive really do make a difference and keep me going when the going gets tough (ha! now get that song out of your head !) SO judging by flickr, my most viewed pictures are monkeys and cupcakes so freebie day this time round is a monkey and cupcake themed freebie ::

First prize is monkey (and his favourite cupcake) and then two further prizes of a set of 3 flat cupcakes.

All you need do is leave a comment on this post and winners will be picked on Sunday.

And once the freebie is complete I can tell you all about the gorgeous new felt colours I am going to order later, I would do it now but I have to go to work!

Monkee Maker said...

No - you just ignore VC and Working Mom Knits .... VC has ONLY JUST WON A MONSTER - and isn't WMK meant to be down-sizing?? She really doesn't need more stuff!

I, on the other hand, desperately need more monkeys.

And I especially love the cupcake with the brown spotty bottom. They're all fab though.

greetingarts said...

Ack, ack, ack! Such a cute monkey, and you're so productive. I have to throw my name into the hat this time, too greedy not to. Thanks for the chance to have a paper-and-string original!

My Paper World said...

I love buttons, too. I used to amuse myself for hours going through my grandmother's "button box." She recycled before it was cool, and entertained me as a side benefit.
