Craft It Forward and a Pillow...


One of my very first blogging friends Tricia, came up with this genius idea over on her blog Craft Addict. Basically, it is called Craft It Forward and here's the rules:

If you want to win a handmade ♥GIFT♥ from me. Be one of the first 3 bloggers to leave a comment on this post, which entitles you to a handmade item from me. Winners must post this giveaway on your blog, meaning that you will {Craft it Forward} too, creating a handmade gift for the first three bloggers who leave a comment on YOUR post about this giveaway! The gift that you send can be any price range and you have 30 days to make and ship your item(s).

Now do you see why I thought this idea was genius? How fun is this gonna be? Remember, it’s the spirit and the thought that count! When you receive your gift, please blog about it, sharing appropriate Linky Love! If you are not one of the Top Three to comment on this post, you can still play along. Please start your own {Craft it Forward} chain, and encourage your blogging friends to do the same.
I was too late to win a gift from Tricia, but I saw that the Hat Chick was participating so I hopped over to her blog and voila, I WON! So now I am Crafting it Forward on my blog. This is gonna be fun way to share some of the great crafts we are always making .

On that note, thought I would share a pillow I made last week. I thought it turned out pretty cute. I am probably still gonna add an applique on the front, but for now I am leaving it as is. I wanted to do a pillow like Kimba made here, but I did not have enough fabric, so I simply took the fabric I had and cut it into strips, and then sewed them together. I left the top open and stuffed in the pillow. Last I cut the remaining top into strips and tied it closed. I added extra strips of fabric to the knots to make my ragamuffin fuller.


What do you think? I could make you one if you win, or maybe a tassel or sock monkey?
