Freebie Fridays

25 Feb

We are so so so so excited to reveal this installment of our Blog. It will bring a whole new meaning to TGIF!


or Finished Project Friday, since, ya know, we can’t always be giving stuff away.

So for our very first ever giveaway, we’re gonna make it easy:

Comment this post with what you would like us to Blog about. That’s right, isn’t that easy? So you ask, what are the prizes? Well, even better news, we have TWO! So that makes TWO winners!

First, Ashley’s awesome draw string bag. These are awesome. Bre uses them to hold different knitting projects, which is way helpful to have the drawstring, since she’s so klutzy, and always spills her bags everywhere. So here is prize 1:

Multi-Use Drawstring Bag

Oh but wait, there’s more! (More?) MUCH MORE!

Another lucky winner will win a loom knit baby beanie. It’s simple, warm, and uber hip. Well, as hip as it needs to be for a baby ;).

I would like to thank Cynthia’s Blythe doll for modeling for me in such short notice.

Obviously this is a pretty small baby beanie, anyone expecting a newborn?

But one more thing! Yep, Breana will double up this deal. If we get 50 comments, on this post, she will make a custom made adult beanie to match, with black & gray stripes. I mean, c’mon, how awesome is that? So one winner will get 2 beanies – one for the little one and one for themselves. So let’s get this going!

Fine Print:

This contest will end Monday at 7pm Pacific time. It is valid for USA only. Only 1 comment per person. If we find out people are double commenting, you will be disqualified. The winners will be posted Tuesday.

About the bag:

Handcrafted by Ashley of a s h l e y m a r i e . on Etsy

Measures 12×14, made of 100% cotton with 100% cotton drawstring, and appliqued fabrics by Echino and Kokka.

Can be used for anything your little heart desires!

About the beanie:

7″ long with a diameter of 13 inches. Can stretch to at least 14″. Made out of acrylic, which makes this baby vegan. Hand knit with a loom. The adult hat will be made from a loom also with the same gray yarn, and also a bulky black yarn in a striping pattern.

Happy Crafting!

Ashley & Breana

    I think Blogs about arts & crafts or DIY projects are fun to read! Also, upcoming community events are a good idea too.
