Giveaway: Heart-Felt Holidays

Kicking off "book week", I've got two copies of Heart-Felt Holidays up for grabs...

  
Heart-Felt Holidays is the follow up to Lark Crafts' book of felt Christmas crafts, Fa La La La Felt. This time round, instead of Christmas projects, there's 40 things to make for holidays and festivals throughout the year from Easter and Halloween to Chinese New Year and Groundhog Day


Most of the projects are from the same designers who worked on Fa La La La Felt (including me! I've got six projects in this book - you can read more about my projects here) so chances are if you liked Fa La La La Felt then you'll like this book too. Both books focus on fun and cute beginner-friendly designs, with an introductory guide to working with felt and simple step-by-step instructions for each individual project.

When my copies arrived I was delighted to see that my cake toppers make an appearance on the back cover... 

 
 .. and that one of my heart ornaments had been chosen for the spine of the book :)


Heart-Felt Holidays is now available to buy from Amazon.com and to pre-order from Amazon.co.uk.

I'm giving away one copy (signed by me) to a reader based in the UK... and Lark Crafts are giving away one copy (signed by the editors, Kathy Sheldon & Amanda Carestio) to a reader based in the USA.

If you're not in the UK or the USA, I'm afraid you can't enter this giveaway but don't despair! You can follow these links to download some free projects from the book instead: the bunny from the front cover, some bunny bunting, a piece of pumpkin pie, a mushroom love brooch, or a leprechaun finger puppet.

Want to enter? Just leave a comment on this blog post for your chance to win - please say which country you're from so I can pick one winner from each! Leave your comment before 10pm on Tuesday 10th April, and I'll pick two winners at random on Wednesday 11th April. 

Please make sure you leave a name or pseudonym (no anonymous comments please!) and leave a blog link, Twitter username, Etsy username or email address so I can contact you. If I'm unable to contact the winner within two weeks then I will pick someone else.

UPDATE: this giveaway is now closed
