This number was picked by http://www.random.org/, but unfortunately I couldn't copy & paste the result or do a screenshot to prove which number it chose - sorry.
So, congratulations to SIMONE who is "going to play with them" ! Simone, if you could please email me your address I'll get them sent straight out to you. Well done !
I have to say I did love reading all of your ideas of what you would use the shapes for - "hats for aliens" really made me laugh !
And in answer to ethel & edna's comment about how many shapes were in the boxes - well there were actually ..................................................... you'll have to wait until next time to find that out !
Thank you to all of you who take the time to read my blog and to those of you who entered the competition. If you're wanting to get your hands on some of the shapes, they're all listed on the website here - you can buy them individually, in sets of 30 circles
and in complete sets of 90 just like the giveaway.
Following on the theme of what would you do with the shapes - last Christmas I had these
which were made from the large felt flowers and small felt circles,
all with brooch pins sewn onto the back. I sold them in my NOTHS shop, my website and at all of the Christmas Fairs that I did, for between £3.50 and £5.00 each.
I was constantly selling out - these brooches were my best seller. At a cost of 35p for the large flower, 18p for the small circle, 6p for a brooch pin, a bit of thread and your time - that's a making price of around 70p for each brooch. Not a bad return eh? Christmas is a coming ... get making girls !!
This weekend, I managed to get the Yo-Yo makers onto the site - they were delivered absolutely ages ago and I never got round to listing them - but they're now available for sale on my website.
I'm also running a SPECIAL OFFER for the rest of May - buy any needle felting kit and get a needle felting sponge / foam pad absolutely free. This is a good freebie because even though the kit contains everything you need to complete the project, it doesn't contain the sponge pad, so if you do decide to buy a kit ... maybe as a gift ... the recipient will get everything they need to complete the project, with you saving £2 into the bargain.
That's it for this week. I'll look forward to seeing you at the Blooming Felt website, with lots of felt shapes and brooch pins in your shopping carts !!
