August Giveaway - Corinne Lapierre Creations!


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!

Felt Pixies 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!

Gingerbread Men Felt Kit 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'.

It is such a professional welcoming site to visit well done on its design.

My favourite item, though hard to choose from all the fab felted designs, has got to be the 'Scallop green purse bag with black gun metal clasp', the design is so unique and classy.

I hope I win my little girls would love to do this together.

I have always wanted to try felting. I did it by accident once when I put a wool jumper through the washing machine & then the dryer. I would love this Felt Gingerbread Men Kit as a project for my daughter & myself.

I love the duck down filled cushions. Only thing is, I'd love them too much to leave them for other people to snuggle into. I'd have them all for myself on my bed!
