Heart Felt Holidays Giveaway

March 15, 2012, 10:21 am  Posted by needlearts

It’s the middle of March and you know what that means–it’s the holiday season! Well, maybe not THE holiday season. But it is certainly full of fun and festive occasions.

Amanda noticed it while putting together Heart Felt Holidays: There’s just so much excitement from March to May as things warm up. To help you celebrate, we’re giving away a copy of Heart Felt Holidays along with its sister book Fa La La La Felt and a bundle of felt!

Here’s a brief look at some of the things you could make. If you’re excited about St. Patrick’s Day, there’s the Leprechaun Finger Puppet you saw last week. Of course there’s also Easter, so you may want to make the Bunny Bunting, some Easter Egg Tree Ornaments, or even the Bunny Pal you see on the cover. And specific holidays aside, you may want to celebrate the joy of April showers and May flowers–perhaps something like the Mushroom Love Brooch, the April Showers wall hangings, or the May Flowers Garland is up your alley!

To enter for a chance to win a copy of Heart Felt Holidays, a copy of Fa La La La Felt, and a bundle of felt, please leave a comment on this post by 9 p.m. EST on Friday, March 16. Any comment is fine—though we’d love to hear what holiday you’re looking forward to! One winner will be selected at random from among all eligible entries and notified by Monday, March 19. Cara is the winner!

    I can appreciate any holiday that gives me a day off work to sew! :) But especially Christmas and New Years, because of the time with family and friends, and a chance for a fresh start.

  • NellyKelly

    Wow, thanks for the opportunity. I’m just starting some felting projects, this would be a great resource!!

  • SewLindaAnn

    I know seasons aren’t a holiday, but I’m really looking forward to some sunshine in Spring/Summer. Holiday wise I’m looking forward to Christmas. I’m making a whole bunch of stuff this year, and even have some things cut out already. I’ve never been good at starting early and I’m trying to change that.

    I like Memorial Day because that seems to be the start of bbqs and the 3-month period when it’s ok to leave work early.

  • Drmithome

    That’s such a great giveaway!  Thanks for the chance to win. 
    There’s really not any holiday that I’m looking forward to.  We
    don’t really celebrate holidays due to MIL’s religion.  She lives
    with us.

I love all the things you can make with felt while sitting in the evenings watching TV. I knit sew and paint, but i sure do love working in felt!!!!!

  • Heidi

    I LOVE Fa La La La Felt!! I don’t know how many times I have gotten it out of the library. So, I would really love to own it for myself. And then another book on top of that??? What a great thing!!! 

  • Usairdoll

    Some holidays I love more than others, however, my all time favorite is Christmas. I also love Halloween. I have a one year old grandson and can’t wait till he is old enough for him and I to start making holiday decorations together. Looks like two wonderful books I’d love to have.

    Thank you for a great giveaway and a chance to win.

    I like the 4th of July because it is also one of my daughter’s birthdays – she’ll be 21 years old this year!

  • http://cindyiscrafty.wordpress.com/ Cindy Is Crafty

    My favorite holiday is Easter as it means that Spring is here!  Love Spring with the flowers, and the new life, the baby birdies and duckies, too!

    Oh what a fun giveaway!  I love 4th of July ’cause it’s right in the middle of summer! :)

  • Leslie

    The only holiday I really care about is Christmas. It always seemed to hold such promise and warm feelings. This would be a terrific prize to win! Thanks for the chance.

  • Laura O

    I am determined this year that I will begin working on Christmas projects early enough to actually finish them. Of course, it’s agony to try and think Christmas when Easter is around the corner!

    Thanks so much,

  • justval

    I am currently working on little homemade Christmas presents and ornaments for my 22 year old baby girl.Since moving 2000 miles away, I want her to feel bits and pieces of my love not only at Christmas but through out the year. It also helps me deal with missing her so badly!

  • Mandy L.

    I just love holidays in general, but my fave is definetly Christmas!

  • Dona Reynolds

    I love all the holidays because I sew for my local children’s hospital and it gives me a chance to make them smile.  Use mostly felt and they love the small dolls/animals to hold when they’re scared.


  • Kirsetnjett

    Looks like fun! I’d love to try some of these projects.

  • Christine Bolin

    I love the colos of the felt.  I’m thinking about Christmas right now. I do this every year.  I put together all the things I’ll need to make most of my Christmas gifts,  That’s the hardest part is putting all the materials together.  

  • Kathleen

    My son collects bunnies which I realize will probably not last through his teenage years.  So, I would enjoy making the adorable bunny on the cover while my house collects dust bunnies!  Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  • Poppy

    I always look forward to Easter because it means warmer weather, flowers, butterflies, and green grass are coming! I could use more craft ideas for other holidays besides Christmas, thank you for the giveaway.

    Halloween is my most favorite.  I love everything about it…crafts, decorating, goodies, spookies, etc.

    I look forward to Christmas. This year I will be making scarves for the family, my grandmother just passed and she use to bring a big box and let everyone pick. She taught me to knit, and now I must carry on the tradition. I am already picking out scarf patterns and yarn she left me. The made those fuzzy scarves, I think we will do lacy ones this year. Keep the tradition, but change it a little.

  • Jennifer R. Gojira

    I look forward to Halloween every year. It’s like Christmas to me and my hubby. 

  • Anna Muniz

    I love the versatility of felt. It’s such an approachable, inexpensive material for newcomers of textile arts. Applique, stuffed toys, wearable accessories- just get a glue gun or a sewing kit from your nearest 99cent store and you’re ready. 

  • Anonymous

    Easter!!! I rescued a bunny a few years ago, and now I am obsessed with all things rabbit! I decorate her cage and make it her special day.
