eleventh monkey GIVEAWAY!

My birthday is on the eleventh (of August) and my Chinese zodiac sign is monkey, hence the ‘eleventh monkey’. Under this name, I’ve already designed and hand sewn numerous felt creatures, and many of them were monkeys. Ten to be exact, so the next monkey I’ll make will be the eleventh! I feel like celebrating!

I’ve been wanting to organize a giveaway for ages and this seems like the perfect occasion! The winner of this giveaway gets to choose all the colors for the eleventh monkey. You get to decide the color of felt for the body, the face, and the nose. The color of buttons for the eyes and the colors of the embroidery floss used to sew it all together!

There are several ways to enter into this giveaway. You only have to do one of these to enter, but if you do more or all of these you’ll have a bigger chance of winning the custom made monkey! I’m so excited about this giveaway, and if things go well I’m sure I’ll host more giveaways in the future.

HOW TO ENTER
  1. Follow my blog and TELL ME about it in the comment section of this post
  2. Heart my shop on Etsy and TELL ME about it in the comment section of this post
  3. Like my facebook eleventh monkey fan page and TELL ME about it in the comment section of this post
  4. Choose your favorite eleventh monkey creature and LINK to its photo on Flickr in the comment section of this post

  8. Facebook about my giveaway and LINK to it or TELL ME about it in the comment section of this post
  9. Tweet about my giveaway and LINK to it in the comment section of this post
  10. Buy something in my Etsy shop and TELL ME about in the comment section of this post
Numbers 1-9 all count as 1 entry each and number 10 counts as 3 entries! And if you've already done one of these things in the past (like follow my blog or heart my shop) it still counts, just comment about it here. If you enter in more than one way, you can just tell me in one comment, no need to create separate comments.

I will draw the winner on Sunday June 13th, so be sure to get all your entries in before 11:59 PM Japanese time (see the clock on this blog) on June 12th! Good luck everyone :).

See who won and what the actual 11th monkey looks like.
