Saturday Giveaway - Eve's Little Earthlings




Eve's Little Earthlings, a member of the Natural Kids team, makes Waldorf inspired children's toys, pillows and home decor made from re-used and felted wool sweaters.

About Eve's Little Earthlings in Eve's words ~

I can't stop making stuff! I was originally trained as a potter and worked at that craft for 15 years. I started sewing and creating different animals for my children to play with. From a simple bunny pattern that I found in a book, I began designing my own little animals. Each one has its own unique appearance. My favourite part of the process is adding the eyes and nose, which just seems to bring the creatures to life. Every year I add a few more species to my repetoire. My kids are teenagers now, but I am still sewing and stuffing! All of Eve's Little Earthlings creations are made with repurposed materials whenever possible. They are all stuffed with wool fleece. I use only 100% felted wool fabric for the bodies of my animals unless otherwise stated.It is a fun challenge hunting down the perfect used sweaters for my creations! Although I am new to Etsy, I have been designing, making and selling Little Earthlings for over 10 years. Little Earthlings are sturdy and meant to be played with. When I'm not sewing, I'm doing mom stuff or working in our large urban garden.

Here is what Eve is offering for this giveaway~



Is it a toy or is it a real chimpunk? This toy chipmunk was out on an excursion and went for a little runabout on a fence rail. I love the way this little guy is scurrying along. His posture really suggests movement!

This toy chipmunk is made from a felted, repurposed sweater. Its stripes are cut out of a another patterned sweater. It is stuffed with wool fleece and embroidery floss is used for eyes and nose. It is suitable as a toy for all ages, or would be a sweet addition to a nature table or collection. Chipmunk is 3.5" long and 3.5" tall to the tip of its tail. Machine wash cold on delicate or hand wash. Air dry only.

To win this adorable chipmunk, please visit Eve's Little Earthlings and then come back and leave a comment about one of her amazing creations. The drawing will be held next Saturday morning, July 31 at 7:00 am.

I really love all the little creatures but I have to say My favorite thing are the beer cozies. I don't drink but I live in WI and I'm sue they would be a big hit in the alcoholic state. LOL

LOVE all the animals, trees and hollow log habitats. My girls would have so much fun playing with this stuff. And I think it is so great she makes "toys" for adults too, the wine and beer cozies were great!

That is the cutest little chipmunk I think I've ever seen! I adore Eve's shop, my favorite item in her shop has got to be the chipmunk or the squirrel, they are both too cute!

Oh my... I LOVE Eve's creations. They are all adorable and I had my favorites but I'd have to say that this little squirrel might be my fav now. He have a resident squirrel called Timone who eats nuts from our hands... even jumps onto our laps. But we are so worried, we havent seen her for a month now. It's the height of summer and so she isn't hibernating. Usually she comes around ever second day or so... Please, Timone, come for a nut!
Blessings and magic,
