Little Elf's Toyshop - Giveaway!!

When I first joined Etsy over a year ago, Little Elf's Toyshop was one of the first shops I 'discovered'. And one of the first shops that I purchased something from - an adorable polymer clay pony. Little Elf continues to astound me with her work.

Elfie has graciously offered one of her needle felted sculptures as a giveaway. If you are not familiar with needle felting, it is the art of stabbing wool roving (wool before it has been spun into yarn) with a barbed needle, thereby 'felting' the wool fibers. You have to be VERY careful to NOT stab yourself, it hurts (I know from experience). But it's very fun, and if you're very talented, you can create work like this:

So, if you would like to win this beautiful little bunny -


1. visit Little Elf's Toyshop


2. pick your favorite item for her shop


3. come back here and leave a comment with your favorite item


4. Contest will end Monday, June 9th, 2008 at midnight.



Thank you!!!



NOTE: some of you that have been wonderful enough to enter this contest have not left me a way to reach you. I will post the winner Tuesday morning, and here's hoping it's somebody that I can contact! Next time I promise to leave a reminder. Or feel free to come back and leave another comment with your contact information!!!
thanks!!

LittleElf makes adorable rabbits and toys, especially her Peter Rabbit characters, but I'm really drawn to Big Ben the Gnome as my favorite since Jacob left her shop :)

mannequin said...

I like Little Gray Kittie but it was a difficult decision because the bunny is who enticed me to take a look at her shop. She is quite talented!

Everybody needs a cuddly bunny.

Hi, I love the "Little Elf's Toyshop!" Handmade is the only way to go. I like the "When You Wish Upon a Star" wall hanging, "Cuddle Bear" doll and the "Little Mushroom" pouch!" I would love winning the adorable bunny. Please enter me in your drawing. Many thanks, Cindi
