    I will make two of the scissors covers for my two girls (3.5 and 5 years old), so they can safely put away their children’s scissors!

  2. That scissor cover is so pretty! I never would have thought to make one. But I guess it would require putting down my scissors long enough to actually sheath them πŸ˜‰

  3. Working with wool is fun, easy, and relaxing. There are projects available for all ability levels. No wonder everyone loves it!

  4. I love felting! The scissors cover is perfect for anyone with special cloth scissors. It’s a great reminder for kids so they know that they are special and not to be used to cut paper or so your husband doesnt grab them in a pinch to cut wire!

  5. I am constantly leaving my scissors around the house. Having their own covers would make finding them much easier – and safer. I love Living Crafts! And all things wool and felt!

  6. My daughters and I love felting. We made felted eggs for our Spring Nature table and we’d love to do more, more, more! …and we’d especially love to win the subscription give-away. I’ve been considering an subscription!

    Thanks for a wonderful giveaway, love the magazine.

  8. I love hand sewing gifts for my kids and friends. I just finished up a felt t-rex for my son. I KNOW we’d put these books to great use:)

  9. These wonderful books would make the perfect birthday gift for my daughter! She loves to make wee things for her little one! And the subscription would be a great addition — she has had a subscription before but doesn’t now (she shares her magazines with me — what fun!!)

    Thanks for such a fabulous giveaway opportunity!

  10. I am anxiously awaiting my first subscribed issue of Living Crafts (just bought it at the store, previously), but what a treat an extra year would be! Thank you for the opportunity!

  11. I am a new mom and could use some help crafting! I would make little felt people and animals to match the stories and songs I tell my 2 1/2 year old. thank you for the opportunity. πŸ™‚

  12. Felting is the craft that my wife and I both love, these books would be wonderful for us both!

    thanks for posting!

  13. I thought I left a post yesterday. but I don’t see it.

    I love this craft pattern and will make several for special gifts. Thank you for sharing it!!

    I love crafting with colorful new felt as well as recycling old woolens for felting projects!

  14. Love working with wool. But I thing I love the challenge of shopping thrift stores for the right wool item to transform into something else and it has to be a bargain. lol

  15. That’s so smart Judy. Our upcoming issue has feature articles on eco fashion, using recycled materials, upcycle party for kids, and recycling through sewing and dyeing. you will love it. Pardis

  16. I like th idea of having some realle essential tools with me all the time… like a crafting project! And this little scissor etui is just gorgious! Did you know, that it was even published as a craft idea fpr christmas in one of our swiss magazines some time ago? Great how living crafts and its artists even influence our little countrys’ craft scene!

    I’d LOVE to win!!!!!


  17. I love Living Crafts and wait eagerly for each issue to come out, and when it does I have been known to look all over the city to find a copy. πŸ™‚

    WOuld be so happy to win this! Thanks for the chance!
