BIG Giveaway!!!!

Ok, I'm going to spring this Ultra Big Giveaway on everyone....because there is a real crafty energy in the air at the moment.
I've got a bit of it, Ms. VintageRicRac has a lot up her way, and just about every one of my favorite bloggers/crafty people just impress me so much with their great innovative and ORIGINAL ideas.
So to get the giveaway ball rolling , some vintage crafty paraphernalia............
Very vintage patterns and Woman's Day booklets,


A mint 70's tea towel and pillowcase,

A piece of this cute little girl fabric,
and some other craft basket goodies......
And of course , I almost forgot, I started Lino Forest ONE year ago, which makes it a bloggiversary as well. So there is also this Betty Jo Sparrow brooch in the prize!This brooch is made with vintage lino, some lovely old buttons, a snippet of embroidery and the tip of a knitting needle for an eye. It comes packaged with this pretty birdy swap card.
All you have to do is leave a comment with your idea for a NEW Betty Jo design...I'm up for anything cute, and will even try to create some of the suggestions.I will choose a random winner next Friday.

  2. Oh my goodness, that really is a giveaway! How about some little Australian animals, maybe a bilby or a wombat? They'd be great done in Betty Jo style. Congratulations on your blogiversary. Also, a quick question - what book is the picture in your banner from? I remember the picture from my childhood, and would love to track it down!

  3. What a fantastic prize! You are so generous.

    My thoughts being solely on crafting today, I have three suggestions! First is a sewing mannequin (oh, the possibilities!), second is a knitting basket and the third is (of course) a sewing machine!

  13. I love the owl, my favorite animal right now! My next favorite would be a turtle, sea turtle to be exact, but a land turtle would be cute also. You could do an undersea theme with a seahorse, starfish, angelfish, sea turtle, etc...

  31. Thought I'd throw my suggestions in the mix, I agree a sunbonnet girl would be cute, or a hedgehog or a hot air balloon with a little basket. Congrats on your anniversary.
