Weekly Giveaway #24

Hello again, I've got a real treat for this week's giveaway. I've written before about how much I enjoy Japanese craft books and how pleased I am to see that Shambhala Publications has been printing English translations under the "Make Good: Craft + Life" imprint. They recently sent me a copy of each of their newest releases so that I could have a look (yes, sometimes my job is awesome!). I've been poring over the goodness for a couple of weeks now, and I think it's time to share the love. I've got one copy of " Felting for Baby" and one copy of " Carefree Clothes for Girls," and I think that's enough to make two people very happy! picture-41 "Felting for Baby" is packed full of great ideas for baby presents – so much so that it's making me wish my friends had *more* kids that I could make gifts for. From those darling little slippers shown on the cover to a crib-side organizer pockets to clatter balls and a sweet teddy bear, I think you're sure to find something in there that's just perfect for the little one in your life (I wouldn't mind having one of the little mushroom-shaped felted "jars" for myself, actually). And with step-by-step photographs for both wet felting and needle-felting, you can start from scratch (like me) and get great results. picture-23 " Carefree Clothes for Girls" would be a perfect source for gift ideas for the young, active, imaginative girls in your life. Whether they're run-and-tumble tomboys or girlie-girls with a penchant for fairy princesses, they're sure to love these clothes, which achieve a perfect balance between frilly and down-to-earth – witness the lovely multi-layered lacy dress and the pants with built-in leg warmers (I could use a pair of those today!). And these projects would all make perfect Christmas presents. (Check out the links for both books to find sample projects that you can try!) I'll be giving away one of these books to each of two lucky winners. For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post telling me which prize you'd likeEntries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 19; a winner will be posted on Tuesday, October 20. Good luck!
