Elephants on parade...and a giveaway!

So, here they are. Handmade stuffed animals!
(forgive the picture quality - our camera battery is dead and I can't find the charger)




the one on the left is actually light purple, not blue

These turned out pretty darn cute, I think. I had to do embroidered eyes (instead of buttons) as these are gifts for newborns. Don't want to give a choking hazard as a gift, now do I?


And because I had so much fun making these, I want to make you one, too. So I'm diving into my first giveaway:


1. Leave a comment on this post to enter.

B. Encourage other people you know to post a comment as well (but don't let them forget to say that you referred them). If your referral wins, you win, too!

III. I will pick a winner on Saturday, February 20th.

Once a winner is chosen (oh, US and Canada mailing addresses only, please), I will contact you to discuss fabrics and colors.

Any questions? Let me know.

Those are so cute! My little girl is obsessed with elephants and has a small collection of them...6 to be exact. This would be a great b-day gift for her. She'll be 2 in 3 weeks! C-Beth sent me! ;)

I'll do a blog post about this too!

Awww, I love elliephants! Totally throw my name in there. Also, C Beth sent me because she's awesome.

These are great! These are the kind of toys that kids drag around until they are thread bare and then they pass on to their kids! (I had a toy like that!)

I like elephants, and my son's room is done in a jungle theme, so we would be happy to take this off of your hands . . . Plus, Jacob needs a new lovey since we just transitioned him from the family bed to his own crib. Bonus score!

Well I saw this on C.Beth Blog and ran right over here! My daughter LOVES elephants and wants to be an animal doctor when she grows up. She's 2 years old, going on 3 and would absolutely adore these creatures. I'm not picky about fabric and colors, just the fact that they are elephants will make them a winner in our house.

They look so cute and cuddle-able! C. Beth sent me so I guess I'm hoping for good luck for both of us. I noticed what another poster said about being in the UK disqualifying him. Can I be included if I have a US mailing address? I hope so.

bridgetnealy@hotmail.com said...

I love the elephants. Just thought I'd let you know. I found you from BBC.

Isabella said...

Thank you all for your great comments! :)

I only excluded international mailing addresses because the shipping would be pricey. If you're in the US or Canada, you are fine.

Those are cute elephants, and they would be precious in my nursery! Thanks to CBethBlog for posting the link!
