A Fab Felt {Giveaway} : :

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *
It's time for a new Giveaway! 
A Fab Felt Holiday Workshop and Felt Stack Giveaway!!!

Wool Blend Felt for Friday's Giveaway!! 25 colors!

When Betz White asked me to participate in the blog tour for her new Fab Felt Holiday workshop on Craftsy, I was thrilled! I chose to make the Scrappy Garland and was so excited to share the wonderful project I had made following the workshop.

Scrappy Christmas Garland

I have long been a fan of Betz's books, creative upcycling projects, and overall passion for being "green". She is such an inspiration to my own sewing and crafting!

Here are just a few examples of her holiday felt work.


I would also like to encourage all of you bloggers, sewists, knitters, and crafters to join Craftsy, if you haven't already. It's free to join and super easy! I recently joined myself just several weeks ago, you can find my page here, and I am so glad I did. It's such a great place to find project tutorials and patterns of all kinds, and to share your own, as well!

The Prize!

Today the folks at Craftsy are generously offering the Fab Felt Holiday Workshop to one of my readers! The giveaway winner will also get a colorful stack of my favorite wool blend felt that can be used to create the projects offered in the workshop, with plenty extra to incorporate into their own crafts! I have created a pin board on my Pinterest page called "Just For Felt" which is full of inspiration for felt crafting and sewing. Craftsy and Betz's blog are always full of both felt and sewing inspiration, as well!

You can take a peek at the Fab Felt Workshop below!
