Felt Pattern Giveaway!

Just in time to treat your little sweetheart to a ♥Valentine's Day♥ surprise, Little Crickets Felt Fun and I are ready for a giveaway!

Last spring I purchased the Little Crickets mailbox pattern.  Well, I have just now gotten around to making it!  The pattern includes more than just the mailbox (with working flag!).  Also included are a shipping box, mail bag, envelopes, stamps, cookies, and shortbread.

I really like my finished mailbox!  I'm not into pink (and I have a daughter and a son), so I change the coloring of the mailbox's details to better fit our family.  I also made it gray, but only because I didn't have white felt on hand, and I wanted to make the mailbox sooner than later!  You might notice my lettering is a bit different than in the other photo.  I would have enjoyed purple lettering with a green blanket stitch, but wanted to use what I had (again), so I went with blue lettering accented in the pink blanket stitch. Though the pattern includes letters, for this I had fun just cutting them out myself.  I have not yet made the rest of the items to go with the mailbox.  Soon, right?

Little Crickets has some cute patterns!

My favourite would have to be fruit. Encouraging healthy eating and all that, but still fun. If it was just me, I'd pick cakes of course.

The mailbox is probably my favorite, but I also love the fruits or veggies. Very cute (and affordable) patterns!

I think my favorite was the sandwich. I love that it has the brown bag and everything. Though the mailbox is a close second.
