Bloggy Giveaways Carnival

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival ButtonJust when I was thinking I'd like to give away some more of my handmade toys I stumble across the bloggy giveaways carnival.


Whee!

Anyone can enter. Leave a comment. I'll choose the winner by random number draw when the carnival is over.

Edit: The winner will get to help me decide what to make for their prize. I make crochet toys. The second commenter asked me if I make up my own patterns. The two toys below were based on someone else's patterns (the alien from crochetme and the bunny from the Lion Brand yarn free patterns "Best Bunny") but I changed them up a bit. For example, the alien's body was a pattern, but the eyeball was all me. The bunny was based on a pattern, but the stripes were me (not changed up much in that case, I'm afraid). But I do sometimes make up my own patterns and I'd be happy to for this contest. Sign up, win, and we'll talk about what you'd like. It'll take me a week or two to make the toy(s) and I'll pay the shipping.

These are the toys I made for the winner of my last giveaway.

This is going to be fun!

Do you make up your own patterns?

Awesome Mom said...

I love crocheted toys! I just wish I was better at it so that I could make my own. The best I can do is a horrible single chain. I stick with knit toys.
