Meet Ali from Kooky Crafts

Scotty Dog Cushion by Kooky Crafts Hello, my name is Ali and I've recently set up Kooky Crafts as a place to sell some of the handmade crafts I've been making.

I have always enjoyed making things but never really took things much further until I went on a short evening course in dressmaking. Although I enjoyed the course, I realised that I much preferred making smaller items, especially using felt.

Starting off with requests from friends (as soon as they found out I could sew) led to quite a few more orders, so I decided to set up places to sell my bits and pieces online which means I get to spend time making the things I love and share them with other people too!

The prize for the giveaway is a handmade felt heart shaped or square cushion with your choice of one of my felt embellishments hand stitched to the front!

You can find all my embellishments in the Kooky Crafts Etsy and folksy shops - and you can also see a few examples below!

The frog is just gorgeous. My mother in law collects frogs which is just as well as when I kissed her son he turned into my prince. This would be an ideal present for her

The scottie dog is my favourite! I really really want a real dog but we have 3 cats so a gorgeous cushion might be a better idea!
