Mollie Makes Feathered Friends Giveaway!

 It seems like ages since I created anything with fabric, but I was delighted when Mollie Makes approached me to make something new for a future book, to be entitled "Feathered Friends".
 And nearly 12 months later, here it is!!

 Very exciting!

It contains over 20 projects with clear step-by-step instructions.....

....featuring crochet, sewing, knitting and more!

And here is my little contribution!
The book is published by Collins & Brown and is available here, but I have a copy to give away!!
And I am going to offer a separate prize - the prototype I made!

Who's a pretty boy then?!

To be in with a chance of winning either the book or the finished parrot, all you have to do is leave a comment underneath. I will announce the winners on Saturday 22nd June. Good luck everyone!

  2. Oh Kirsty, that bird! I'd love to win either but we're expecting our first baby and I'm hoping to do the room in a jungle/safari 'theme' (I hate that word) and he would just fit right in! I was going to contact you about a mobile anyway!
    Ps well done on the book, fantastic!
