i heart giveaways (and felt roses)

UPDATE: GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

it's giveaway day at sew mama sew.  wahoo!  this is such a fun way to get introduced to other blogs.

felt roses

for my first time participating in this event, i am giving away a felt rose corsage.  i will let the winner choose their colors.  the roses will be sewn onto a pin back and can dress up a jacket, t-shirt, or even a pillow.  pretty much anything looks cuter with one of these sweet things.  

felt roses

here is an example of one i made a few months back.  you can have one large single flower, a grouping of 3 or a grouping of 5. 

shoppe sneak peak

here are some of the colors i currently have in stock but i expect more felt soon.  (audible sigh)  i just love these flowers.
 
to enter, leave a comment with your corsage size (1, 3, or 5 flowers) and color choice(s)  - don't feel limited to those pictured - i want to be inspired by you!  i will pick a winner sometime on friday, may 21st.  so comment away until then!

oh and about the other giveaway day goodies?  go check them out!  but only if you have a decent chunk of time (which i am not sure i will be able to find).  there are a lot of them.  you will be sucked into visiting and commenting.  i guarantee you.

Lovely Annalea! I'm entering this one, since last time you gave away the banners I hesitated and missed out! I'd love to pin on a corsage of 5 roses to a pillow or sweater-maybe shades of green or yellow:) Thanks for sharing!

ItsMeBeth said...

i love the corsage idea. If i win I would like mine to have purple and yellow, pink flowers, maybe even a turquoise colored flower, they are my fave colors.

Lu said...

I love felt and I LOVE these flowers! I especially love the orange, I'm thinking a cluster of 3. Thanks for posting! My email is in my profile.

Kitty Vane said...

Oh my, you make such pretty things!

If I were lucky enough to win, I'd love a 3 rose corsage with one orange flower, one yellow flower and one red flower.
And if I could go crazy with the colours and all, I'd still stick with 3 flowers and I think I'd pick mustard yellow, bubble gum pink and turquoise roses with maybe a little green leaf or two thrown in.

Love that corsage. I think I'd have a group of 3, but can't decide on the colour yet... maybe red, maybe white, maybe a pinky mix... what about pale blue?
