Time for Felt Giveaway

PLEASE NOTE: This Giveaway is now CLOSED. Please feel free to leave a comment though. We love to hear from you!
As I gathered GUEST bloggers for Celebrate the BOY, my friend Laura of Alice in La La Land immediately came to mind. She doesn't have a craft blog and she doesn't have a boy. But this lady has amazing style. She's traveled the world, her mom taught her every craft skill in the book, and well, she always looks like she just walked out of a magazine. I knew that whatever she chose to share, it would be cool and photographed just perfectly.

So without further ado.....
it's something you've always yearned for....
a way to accessorize your little boy while still keeping him manly.....

The Felt Watch:
But first let's hear all about it from Laura.....
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I love making creative things, I guess primarily because I have been surrounded by ├╝ber creative people all my life. I was raised in a family of all girls by one of the most amazingly creative and crafty women on earth. From her I learned just a few of her many talents: knitting, sewing, crocheting, needlepoint, and many more. I am, however, sad to say that I did not inherit her patience and precision in these areas. I avoided these crafts for years, instead doing things like cooking, drawing, jewelry making, and photography. But, then I had my little girl, and found a new desire to create things for her.
My daughter is the inspiration behind the majority of the things I make. I love to accessorize, and luckily so does she. I have an ETSY shop where I sell some of my accessories for girls. But, thanks to my good friend Dana, I have revisited creating for boys! Boys like to accessorize too, they just don't know it. Every boy likes wearing a cape, a belt, boots, a hat, and a watch, right?

Well, what I have for you today is a watch that every boy will like. It may not tick, but it is soft, comfy, easy to put on and take off, doesn't set off the airport security machines, doesn't require a battery change, and always let's you know what time it is. With this watch, it's always party time!
Made of craft felt, embroidery floss, and velcro, this little timepiece is a quick project with a lot of life!
Your boy is sure to enjoy his felt watch. (My girl thinks they are fun, too! Shhh...I just mentioned girls).
