Happy Give-Away day, craft fans!
Hello and welcome back to the Handmade Crafts give-away. We're slightly late this month, because
we've been busy with updating the site to allow you to
Submit Craft Links to
our directory - did you think we'd forgotten about the give away?
A little word from our sponsor
This month's prize has been kindly donated by
Corinne Lapierre (of Corinne Lapierre creations).
She's got a few words to say - both about the prize and herself, so we'll hand you over in just a second.
You can enter as usual - simply visit Corinne's website, look through her "gallery" and
leave a comment on this post telling us which of her lovely items you like best.
Entries will be accepted up until Midnight GMT on Sunday 29th August 2010, at our discretion.
Corinne, meet everybody - everybody, meet Corinne!
With a background in fashion design, I have always been passionate about crafts and more so about textiles.
Whilst studying millinery, I came across felt and was instantly amazed by the unique qualities of this material!
I researched and taught myself how to make felt with different wool and in 2009 I launched my craft business
Corinne Lapierre Creations, making unique
handmade felt accessories, mainly using Merino wool as it is soft and luxurious.
I make a range of fashion accessories (bags, purses and brooches), home accessories (cushions and tableware),
children accessories ( soft toys, decorations and baby slippers) and I have recently developed a range of
kits for people to make their own creations. I sell online, at craft fairs and to the trade. I also run
feltmaking workshops so I can pass on the bug!
The prize: Felt Gingerbread Men Kit!
A lovely kit including everything you need to make two felt gingerbread men decorations.
Presented like a baking kit, you will find two pre-cut handmade felt shapes (colours of ginger and cinnamon).
The felt is handmade with pure Merino wool.
A small bag of 'raisin-beads', a bag full of 'icing ric-rac', 'icing sugar embroidery cotton', ribbons and a
needle as well as the stuffing (Merino wool) and 'recipe'.
