Sew Mama Sew GIVEAWAY!!!!

Welcome to By Hook & Thread! I'm so excited that you're here for the great giveaway.
Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway!
Today's theme is Red and Grey.

Tea pot not included.
First up is a tea pot cozy made from reclaimed sweater ribbing. The back is in once piece, also from a felted wool sweater.

It will keep your pot warm for the 2nd cup after you've read through a bunch of other giveaways.

Along the same lines is a tea bag cozy. Now you can bring your favorite tea with you.

And something for the little man in your life (or wee lass) ARRRGGGGG!

Here is a needle felted ladybug ring.

And the back, I love the little heart on the back. (it's hard to take a picture of a ring that you can't put on your hand. I had the wrong lens and couldn't back away far enough.)

And lastly, a little sweater pouch. Coins? bandaids? hair clips? Up to you. It isn't lined.

So there you go... a whack of loot in red and grey waiting for you!

And as a bonus, one of these guys, he has a bit of orange, but he' also grey!

Just tell me where you're from. If you follow me, write a 2nd comment telling me so for an additional chance to win! I will ship internationally. I will leave comments open until May 25 in the evening after the kids have gone to bed. Winner will be selected by random generator.

Comments are now CLOSED! I'll be back in a minute while I count things up.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again!
Cheers,
Amanda
