Kerry's Winter Woolies Pattern - Giveaway!

Kerry's Winter Woolies

Thank you so much for everyone who left comments on 
my organizer baskets tutorial
It's been so fun and rewarding to see your 
baskets popping up in the Pink Penguin flickr pool.
I also enjoyed hearing about your plans for your baskets' use
in the comments. I'll make a list of your ideas for the baskets
and add it at the end of the tutorial post sometime soon.

I wanted to share with you a few projects I whipped up 
in this past few weeks. The mittens above were made using
Kerry's first paper pieced pattern for sale! 
Isn't it the most adorable thing?! Have you seen Amy's take on it?
Such loveliness! I especially love those mittens, so I am making 
a tea cozy with these blocks for my new small tea pot. 
(I enlarged the pattern quite a bit.)
The pink mitten is mine and the other one is Joe's. When I saw the 
creature fabric, I had to snatch it right away because 
it was the Joe-est fabric I have ever seen! Joe doesn't
like the fabric, but hopefully he'll change his mind after 
seeing a tea cozy, hehe.

tissue box cover for a friend
Here is one of several tissue box covers I made for friends.
I had quite a few failure attempts in making this pattern,
but I ended up coming up with a pattern that is just a perfect fit
for a Japanese standard tissue box (it's so short!).
I'll have to make one for myself!

Cracker Scraps for Angela - Stash Trad Bee





And this is a block for Angela in Stash Trad bee.
This is her original pattern called Cracker Scraps, and you can find
her super easy to follow tutorial here! With her clear tutorial, I was 
able to make this without making a single mistake. It felt so good!!

Ok now to a giveaway! Kerry has allowed me to give
away her Winter Woolies pattern to one lucky Pink Penguin reader!
For your chance to win the pattern, leave one comment
in this post by the midnight of October 26th. 
Good luck :)

Thank you for stopping by! Hope you are staying warm!

  86. Kerry's pattern is adorable and I love the tissue cover. I'm going to give it a good study and see if I can figure out how you did it. It looks a little like what I have to hold my purse pack tissues but you mentioned it was holding a box? Hmm. I'm curious! Off to Google to search for images of Japanese tissue boxes.
