6500 likes Giveaway!

I was trying to get some sewing done over the weekend and my Daughter, Amelia, just would not give me a moments peace. So I told her she could design a dolly for Mummy's market night and asked her to pick whichever fabrics she liked from my stash. She delved into my box of felt and came out grinning holding a sheet of bright red polka dot felt that has been in there for years! I bought it ages ago because I liked it, but couldn't find a use for it! Great. Thanks Amelia! She then got her stool from the bathroom, reached up onto my shelf of fabrics and pulled out some green toadstool fabric. All I could think about was my mum saying "red and green should never be seen"! But I was given my orders. That's what she wanted and she also insisted on blue socks!

I was apprehensive whilst cutting it out, but the more I sewed, the more I began to love her and her quirky style!  The end result was this spotty dotty toadstool dolly, aptly named "Dot". Not  a bad designer for a four year old after all!

As I reached 6,500 Facebook likes on Saturday, I figured a giveaway was well overdue as I didn't do one when I reached 6000.  Amelia's dolly design gave me the idea to run a Design Your Own Dolly competition and the winner will receive one dolly in their chosen design (or as close as possible). So without further ado... Here's the competition rules:


1) Pop over to my Facebook page and LIKE the competition post which is pinned to the top.
2) Design a dolly using the free colouring sheets on my Facebook page.
3) Scan, (or take a photo of the picture if you don’t have a scanner) and EMAIL it to me at along with your child’s name, age and the address where you would like the dolly posted to, should you win. Mark the subject line COLOURING COMPETITION. I will then upload the photos into an album on my Facebook page and the winner will be the picture with the most likes.
