MCC Send-off Contest Winners!

All I can say is WOW! I can’t believe all of the amazing entries that came out of the woodwork for this contest! Thank you all so much to everyone who participated! It was so tough to choose the 20 entries that I did; I would have easily given out 20 more prizes without a second thought. So please know that if you didn’t get a prize, your participation was still very much loved and appreciated ♥ I got over 250 people that entered the contest, many of whom submitted 3 projects or more, so there was some tough competition.
If you haven’t gotten your prize email by now, below you should see where you stand 🙂 And if you still want to get a hold of some free patterns, I’m starting a giveaway TOMORROW! For all you guys that are still new to plush-making and maybe didn’t feel comfortable competing ♥

MCC Send-off Contest! Plus a new sewing pattern!

Hi everyone! As many of you might know, the Monthly Crafting Challenge is officially over, but I wanted to celebrate 4 amazing years with you guys with a contest! I’ve only done giveaways up until this point, so I thought a contest would be a nice change of pace and a fun way to bring back the feel of the challenge one last time 🙂
The basic rules are just like the ones for the original MCC! Simply send in your best projects made from my patterns and I’ll pick my favorites! But keep scrolling to get all the details.

So what’s up for grabs? There’s a huge grand prize pack as well as several runner-up prizes:
GRAND PRIZE gets the ultimate sewing pack:
• A collection of 9 jewel-toned Shannon minky fabric pieces; 18” x 60” each; perfect for making fantasy creatures and other critters!
• A 1½ yd. pack of Heat n’ Bond fusible web for applique
• A 1 lb. bag of poly pellets
• The entire 13 pattern collection of my legendary creatures series
• My newest pattern for a Chibi Steampunk plush! ↓

The pattern I use for my Steampunk Plushies has been one of my most requested patterns! Probably because it’s so dang versatile ♥ It can make tons of different animals, but this pattern will show you how to make a wolf, cat, fox, rabbit, or panda. And it comes with loads of steampunky accessories to dress them up! They’re a large 11″ tall size that’s perfect for cuddling. They’re a little more difficult to make than my previous patterns, but if you’ve been making my projects for a while now you might be ready to take them on!

SECOND, THIRD, FOURTH, AND FIFTH place winners will all receive:
• The entire 13 pattern collection of my legendary creatures series
• My newest pattern for a Chibi Steampunk plush!

Magikarp Hat Giveaway!

Magikarp Giveaway

Hi everyone! About a week back you all got me to over 2,000 subscribers! So exciting! I can’t thank you all enough for being such wonderful fans of this site 😀 To celebrate, I’m holding a little giveaway for this fun Magikarp hat!

UP FOR GRABS:
For this giveaway, you have a chance to win this slouchy Magikarp hat — a pokemon from the awesome video games and cartoon. It’s sized to fit unisex adults, and measures 23″ around — though it stretches to fit as much as 26″. It measures 19″ long from brim to tail tip, so it’s big and slouchy for a fun casual look. It’s made from polar fleece so it’s completely machine washable, though it’ll stay looking brand new much longer if you wash it on the gentle cycle and let it air dry (fleece air dries super fast). It includes all the little details too — like side fins, top and bottom fins, whiskers, tail fin, and big doofy eyes.

TO ENTER:
Fill out the form at the bottom of this post and submit! 😀

DEADLINE:
The giveaway will be active from Monday, September 7th and the winner will be contacted at 9pm EST on Monday, September 14th

CLAIMING YOUR PRIZE:

  • The winning entrant will be chosen at random from the list of submissions.
  • The winning entrant will be contacted via email about their win (so keep an eye on your email!)
  • The winner will have 48 hours to respond to their winning notification before another winner is chosen
  • As a winner, you will be expected to divulge your address (or PO Box) to me only so the prize can be shipped to you

OTHER DETAILS:

  • As a winner, I’ll announce your name and website (if applicable) on this page, so every entrant knows who was the final winner.
  • International entrants are more than welcome to enter
  • To all international entrants: note that you may be required to pick up your package at your local post office or pay customs fees. These rules differ for every country so unfortunately I can’t be held responsible for any extra charges you might be asked to pay.

Steampunk Plush Giveaway

* Click the picture to head to the entry page! *

Hello everyone!

I’m pleased to announce that on about a week ago I met another one of my kiriban goals! This time for deviantArt pageviews: 150,000! I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of my amazing deviantArt fans and introduce a new plush line at the same time 😀

The winner of this giveaway will get to create a custom steampunk critter plush! It’s the same as many of my other big-headed plush cuties, but this time it’s all decked out in steampunk gear. You have your choice of fabric color, animal, and accessories.

Since the giveaway is due to my kiriban on DeviantArt, I’m actually hosting the giveaway there 🙂 So to get all the details and enter you’ll need to visit my DeviantArt page directly (and make an account if you don’t already have one). I just wanted all of my followers on here to get the heads up as well ^o^ And stay tuned to that page, because once the giveaway is over, I’ll release an EXCLUSIVE coupon code so you can buy a plush for yourself if you like ♥

Good luck to everyone who enters!

Nyan Cat Quilt Giveaway!

Nyan-Cat-Quilt-Giveaway

* Click the picture to head to the entry page! *

Hello everyone!

I’m pleased to announce that on Saturday I met another one of my kiriban goals! This time for deviantArt pageviews: 123,456! A silly number, I know, but choosing a more even number like 150k or 200k seemed too far :B So, starting today, I’m holding another giveaway!

The winner of this giveaway will receive this handmade Nyan Cat quilt! You might recognize it from the Nyan Cat quilt-along I did last year. I knew as soon as I made it that I wanted to give it away as a prize, and now seemed like an ideal time because I have some current projects that are still a few weeks off from being ready to share.

Since the giveaway is due to my kiriban on DeviantArt, I’m actually hosting the giveaway there 🙂 So to get all the details and enter you’ll need to visit my DeviantArt page directly (and make an account if you don’t already have one). I just wanted all of my followers on here to get the heads up as well ^o^

Good luck to everyone who enters!

Custom Steampunk Cap Giveaway!

SteampunkCapGiveaway

Hello everyone! As promised, I’m announcing the new giveaway to celebrate 100k pageviews on my DeviantArt page!

The winner of this giveaway will receive a custom steampunk aviator cap! This is a design I’ve been wanting to implement for a long time now – a suede cloth aviator cap with minky faux fur lining and a choice of hand-painted motifs on the side. The chosen winner will get to work with me and pick out the color, ears, headflap, motif, you name it!

And, when the giveaway is finished, I’ll be launching the rest of the hats on my Etsy store! You’ll get the same color selection with a few custom options. Be sure to check back here when the winner is announced as I’ll be giving out a coupon!

Bat Hat Giveaway!

Thanks to all of you I now have over 1,000 followers on my website here! In honor of this, I’m holding another giveaway!

BatHat

BatHat2The prize for this giveaway is one of my original hat creations, this adorable and fluffy little bat x3 It features cute little ears, a professional satin stitched face, and two long wings that come down the sides. It’s made from polar fleece which is perfectly machine washable, but also air dries quickly if you want to avoid machine drying it and keep it looking new as long as possible. It’s pretty much a one-size-fits-all for adults, as it fits heads between 22”-25” in circumference because it stretches so nicely.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
For this giveaway, I thought I’d try something new. While the randomly chosen winner will get the bat hat, everyone else will also get a prize! I’ve been working hard all month making some more hats and hoodies (like the bat hat here) from the last of my fleece yardage and they’ll be done just in time for the holiday season (stay tuned for an update about that in about a week) 😀 Once the winner of the giveaway reaches me, everyone will be mailed a coupon code to my Etsy store so you’re free to buy a hat at a discount if you didn’t win! ^-^

The fun part is, the coupon code is a mystery that you choose >w< When you sign up for the giveaway below, you’ll be asked to pick what’s behind door number 1, 2, or 3, and depending on what you choose you might receive a coupon for a certain percentage off your total purchase, a certain dollar amount off, or maybe a free gift with purchase – that kind of thing!

Thank you all again for signing up for email updates and getting me to over 1,000 followers! And good luck to all of you that are entering 😀 I hope the winner loves their new hat!
