Jenny And Teddy Creations Giveaway!
Our giveaway today is absolutely perfect to kick off Dolly Week! Today I want to introduce you to a sweet little Etsy shop called Jenny And Teddy Creation. Jenny And Teddy Creation is a shop that all of you that like to crochet are going to love!
Jane, of Jenny And Teddy Creation, specializes in adorable amigurumi crochet patterns. Like really really adorable (you don't have to know how to crochet to enjoy this giveaway though- keep reading)!
For those that aren't sure what amigurumi means, it is a Japanese term to describe knitting or crocheting stuffed animals.
I for one think the art of knitting and crocheting is really coming back in style, and is not just a hobby of older folks any longer. What do you think? I think young and old are both starting to fall in love with needle crafts.
Check out some of the adorable patterns you can find in Jane's shop.
And one more...
Head on over to Jenny And Teddy Creations and come back and tell me the name of the pattern you love most. That is all you have to do to be entered to win this....
One lucky winner is going to win this super cute little crocheted bear named Emma!
Isn't she adorable?
You will win the finished product, not the pattern.
For those of you that can't resist this pattern, Jane will be releasing this one in her shop soon.
Giveaway closes Friday November 26th 7PM PST
One entry per person please
Please leave a way for me to contact you if your email address isn't in your blogger profile!
These would make perfect Christmas gifts for those little people in your life. If you have never crocheted, now is the time to learn! :) Jane's patterns are also really inexpensive and she doesn't mind if you want to sell your finished products.
I remember being a little girl and sitting at my great grandmother's feet winding her tangled yarn into balls for her as she would sit in her rocker and crocheted. I used to wonder why she liked crocheting blanket after blanket after blanket.
Well, one Christmas, I received a beautiful crocheted doll from her. I wish I still had it. It opened my eyes and after that I would sit with hook in hand and try to crochet along with her (I just made a mess out of her yarn). It wasn't until recently that I really sat down and took the time to learn, and I hope one day to try out one of these beautiful patterns and give the same joy to my children.
I don't really remember many gifts I received as a child, or many treats I may have gotten at the store. I remember vividly winding yarn with my great grandmother and other such things like that. I bet these are the things you remember too. I try to remember this when I feel caught up in the "I have to buy this for my kid for them to be happy". So easy to get caught up in those types of thoughts but if you think back to your best memories they don't often involve expensive material possessions, do they? Now that Christmas is coming up I'm finding I need to remind myself of this daily.
Sorry for the story, but what would a post from me be without a little ramble? :)
