Little Tweetheart Doodle Keepsake - Kit Giveaway!!!

I've been a busy little bee today.  Even the arrival of the second issue of Mollie Makes didn't deter me for too long.  (okay it did really, but let's pretend shall we!).  For a while I've been working on my Little Tweethearts Sew Simple collection.  I have several projects all mapped out, it has been making them up that has slowed me down.

I've only gone and finished one!

May I introduce my first ever kit........ (drum roll please)
Little Tweetheart Doodle Keepsake

I'm so pleased to be showing you this.... that I'm also going to offer my first ever giveaway too!
A complete kit to make your very own tweetheart.  

Kit Includes

Everything you need to make the heart (you only need add stuffing)
Buttons (including 2 of my Cajame ceramics)
Vintage Lace
Vintage crocheted doily
Part of the Little Tweethearts Sew Simple Collection
Pretty Portable Projects - Ready to Go
Hand sew your own special Keepsake

Full instructions will help you complete your Little Tweetheart in no time at all.  Each kit will be provided with a personalised Doodle design if requested.  I will include any names/words as required, all hand doodled and ready to embroider.  The fabric shapes are all pre-cut and backed with vilene or bondaweb as appropriate.  You really do only need to thread a needle and you're off!

The perfect make to carry around in your bag, it would be an ideal project to do of a lunchtime, or whilst travelling to and fro work.  Although there is a lot of embroidery involved, they are all very simple stitches and so it does come together quickly.

The little tweet has been appliqued onto a calico heart by blanket stitch, with the wording My Little Tweetheart embroidered in back stitch.  The heart has then been doodled with a variation of stitches, designs and words.  On this one I've included, SMILE, LOVE, LAUGH and TWEET.  With a perky button eye and floral wing - she's a pretty little thing.

The reverse hasn't been forgotten either!  I've designed the heart as a keepsake, so there's a little vintage lace edged pocket for hiding away a little treasure.  What could it be I wonder?  A lock of hair, a baby tooth, a piece of vintage jewellery, perhaps even a love letter - carefully folded away.  With pretty buttons and a vintage crochet doily, this Little Tweetheart harks back to times gone by.  The main body of the heart and the hanger are in pastel gingham.  (available in either pale pink or pale green).

I'll also be including one of my button-heart bag charms, and a little surprise or two.
