Make Like A Sheep GIVEAWAY!

Yeah, I know.  The use of sheep to describe someone's status as a follower has negative connotations - but sheep are so darn cute!  So, I'm goin' with a sheep theme for my "Hay, I Reached 100 Followers" giveaway.

This is an exciting day for me!  (Okay, Wednesday the 23rd was the actual day that followers of Fowl Single File tallied 100.  It just took me awhile to extract myself from the garden/backyard and get busy in my craft room - I'm so baaaad about that when the weather's nice.)  At any rate, 100 is a LOT of followers and this giveaway is an opportunity for me to express how much I appreciate ewe guys.  So here's what one lucky follower can win:



Five cute sheep magnets and a little sheep pouch!  I've explained the theme of sheep already and I decided to go with magnets because they're universally practical and cute at the same time.  The pouch was an afterthought, though.  The magnets by themselves just seemed kinda stingy and lame.  I realize that they don't really go together.  How many times have you said to yourself, "Gee.  I wish I had a coordinating pouch in which to store all my magnets."  Probably never. 

Now on to the details and more photos.  The sheep pouch was made using this super-handy Perfect Box Pouch Tutorial from Indie House.  It had to fit the theme, of course, so I appliqued a little sheep on the side.  I know.  Shear genious, right?



The finished dimensions are roughly 2 inches tall, 5 inches wide, and 3 inches deep.  Okay. That's probably enough pouch information.  I won't ram  any more details about that down your throat.  Let's move on to the magnets (and I promise I'll be brief).

Five sheep magnets in green.  These little guys are a combination of fabric, eco felt, ebroidery floss, glue, fusible web, and magnets.  Here they are posing on my fridge.  I tried to give them different facial expressions.  I think the one on the bottom left looks a little sinister, though.  I guess he's the literal "black sheep of the family."




Did I mention that they can do tricks?  They're a fairly acrobatic breed.


Alright.  If you're on the west coast like I am I'll wrap this up because it's probably getting to be pasture bedtime.  Here's how to enter.

1.  I'll close the giveaway at 6:30am (PST) on Friday, July 9th. 
2.  I'll use a random number generator to determine the winner.
3.  I wool notify the winner via email, so make sure that's available to me either through your blog or your Blogger profile or leave it in your comment.
4.  I will ship internationally, so everyone's welcome to participate.
5.  To enter, leave one comment on this post.  It can be anything but if you'd like, please leave any suggestions for what you'd like to see more of on my blog or what you like best about my posts...don't be sheepish.  Tell me what you really think.

I'm gonna make like a sheep and get the flock outta here now so folks can start entering the giveaway!  By the way, the official pun count for this post is 9.  Did you find them all?

[Note added 7/9/2010: Find out who won the sheep.]
