dress up dolls giveaway

grant dress up dolls
I've recently started working with the lovely folks at Grant Studios, dreaming up tutorials using their great craft resources and paper stocks. Do you remember the sneak peeks I gave in my creative space a few weeks ago? These were for projects designed for the Grant website, you can see them here along with some other great paper projects designed by a few familiar crafty types!

The first two projects published are inspired by Grant's wonderful Dress Up Dolls kits from their Studio Girl range. As I've said before, I'm a big fan of craft for kids and these simple kits are perfect beginner projects for little people.

The four kits come with a cute cloth dolly to dress as a princess, fairy, mermaid or ballerina. Its lots of fun (even for big kids like me!) and what I like about these kits is that all the fabrics and beads and sparkles are supplied, there's no extra to buy or find. And the instructions are simple enough for bigger kids to try on their own.

For those days when the dolly is tired of her princess clothes and wants to catch up at the park with friends I've designed a simple tutorial which shows how you can make your own outfits. And I couldn't resist the idea of being able to change the dolls' hair colour and styles too, so there's another tutorial that shows how to do that. Both of my projects could be made easily with fabrics and yarn offcuts you have in your stash.

But best of all - Grant have been nice enough to send me Lilly, the mermaid doll, for a giveaway, isn't she cute! A winner will be chosen from all the 'like'-ers of the new Flower Press page on Facebook. (p.s. this isn't a sponsored post, apart from the prize which I asked Grant to donate.)

Thanks to everyone who has already visited and made me feel so welcome - you're already in the draw. Its been really nice to find so many friends there.
The giveaway ends next Wednesday the 22nd (Show & Tell and Brooch deadline is on Tuesday!) so pop over now and say hi for a chance to win. Oh, and if you come back tomorrow, I've finally finished my brooch and just need to take some pics before I send it. How is yours going?
