freebie day is BACK!

Hurrah 'tis freebie day again!
I have been inspired by the toadstool swap (I posted my parcel off today to Claire)
and have included materials to create your own toadstools, should you wish to do so :-)
There are two packages which look like this ::

and each one contains this little lot ::

Two pieces of felt, a fat quarter of toadstool fabric, two lengths of grosgrain ribbon some felt ric rac and a cute little iron-on patch.

All you need to do is answer the question below in a comment on this post and make sure I can contact you, either through your blog or an email address. Any un-contactable entries shall be disqualified (because it makes me sad when freebies have no home to go to!)
FREEBIE QUESTION :: what is your favourite craft?
for me it's hand sewing felt, but I guess you knew that right?

PS the question is just for fun, I will pull two winning names randomly from the hat on Sunday :-)

Ooh, that bundle of stuff looks lovely, I especially like the little rabbit patch! My favourite craft at the moment is sewing fabric bags -you can complete a whole project in hour and I do like that (almost) instant gratification!! (I also knit a little, am trying out quilting and have a list as long as my arm of other crafty stuff to try out!)

dottycookie said...

Ooooh, is that mushroom fabric in your shop? I love it!

Don't put me in the draw since I've already won once and it's someone else's turn!

Oh yes, favourite craft - I'm sorry, that's like asking me to choose a favourite between my children!

Nia said...

I have to say, you hold the best giveaways! My fave craft is felt embroidery.

Andrea said...

...well, my fave craft is make jewels with remnant of different materials...so if I'll be lucky, with your delightful giveaway I'll be able do make something new..;o)

jellybelly*jellybrain said...

Wow! What a fantastic giveaway!

My favourite craft is seeing something in my head and then seeing it come to life .. whether it be fabric, jewellery, DIY, etc. So I supposed that's "designing" !!

ethel and edna's tearoom said...

How do I answer that? Anything that involves needle and thread really, hand or machine sewing, but preferably a mixture of both. I suppose that's why I like dolls so much - there's construction and then the decorative side as well.
What a fab bundle of goodies. I spotted the patches the other day in your 'sick-bed shopping' and fell in love with them. :o)

dottydesigns said...

ooh lovely giveaway, my favourite craft is applique with free machine embroidery. X

Katy said...

I keep trying to resist, but I'm coming back for freebie day...I can't stay away any more!!!
My fave craft is hand sewing. Doesn't matter what I'm sewing, just sewing along happily in front of the telly. Bliss!!!

Kelly said...

At the mo i'm trying my hand at lot's (have a few stab wounds from the needle felting i've been trying out today) but my favourite would have to be crocheting small animals, (probably because it's what i'm best at and can do quickest)

Elizabeth said...

I do enjoy a bit of easy knitting as it's something to do whilst watching telly, but I also enjoy making book bags from pretty vintage pillowcases too. Love the mushroom fabric and the rabbit patch in the prize. (Contact details - elizabethyule@hotmail.co.uk or www.makinggooduse.typepad.co.uk)

Alison said...

Sewing in general is my favorite craft. I am obsessed with fabric and baby gift items. So I'd be happy the rest of my life if I could just sew baby stuff every day!

Thanks for offering such beautiful prizes!!

Melissa said...

Who doesn't love a freebie especially ones like these I would have to say sewing with felt and mohair because I got started with felt and keep coming back to it but really love mohair too.

Heidi said...

Hand-sewing felt is my #2, but #1 has to be knitting. I love how portable it is!

Anna said...

I would have to say crochet. I love how easy it is to just make things up as you go along.

(I found your blog a week or two ago and have read through all the way from the beginning - you make such lovely things! Also, I grew up in Horsham although I don't live there any more, and my sister lives in Worthing)

Oooh...great freebie prize!

My favorite craft right now is making clothespin dolls. They are so sweet and fun to make!

greetingarts said...

You're simply amazing, you know that, don't you?

My favorite craft would have to be any kind of hand sewing, I think. Embroidery, too. Just love the feel of the needle going back and forth, and the even, straight stitches (well, hopefully anyway!).

Jill said...

My favorite craft of the moment is making "vintage" paper cones, or tussie mussies. I have started to appreciate any and everything vintage and Victorian and these go right along with that theme!

Shelley said...

Ooh a lovely giveaway, how nice of you! I love applique, felt is of course my favourite fabric to use as you can do so, so much with it, although a little retro fabric remnants thrown in amongst the felt does no harm in my opinion!

Jenn said...

My favorite craft (this week) would be paper crafting. I go through phases though, so I'm sure I'll be tired of it next week and ready for some sewing.

Nina said...

Hmmmmmmmm my fav craft. Thats a hard one. I think it had to be scrapbooking as I am using the millions of photos I take and I can use a wide veriaty of materials, there are no rules!

sara said...

At the moment it is knitting but that could all change in the blink of an eye.

Sohaniee said...

Lucy Carlson said...

At the moment I am indulging in the frivolous but gorgeous art of felt food..I never now so much fun could be had from making a felt sandwich and having a pretend picnic with the children without any of that vile plastic food! :D

Maxine said...

What a fantastic giveaway! It's very difficult to choose my favourite craft but at the moment I'd say it's hand sewing as I find it very relaxing.

Dragonfly said...

It depends what day it is for my favourite craft...today, it's been crochet, earlier in the week it was quilting...I'm very fickle!

Helen said...

My favourite craft is creating with felt, whether stitching to make a creation or adding to my scrapbooking...

Jessica/Yesi said...

my favorite craft is making greeting cards. i always put lots of time and effort into them, and then love to send/give them to people when they least expect it. i think people really appreciate something handmade than store-bought.
it also makes me feel super giddy when, later on when i visit their house, i see the card! maybe even weeks from when they got it! propped up on the mantle, dresser, or fridge! i'm glad i can make something someone else will enjoy so much <3

MamaSheg said...

Oh what a fabulous freebie you are giving away.

My favorite thing is paper crafting.Especially altering items with paper...I love it!

XOOXO

willywagtail said...
