a fishie giveaway!

i promised and here it comes...

but first a new finished squishie fishie to share....

stripey squishie fishie:
approx. 6" tall, 9" lips to tail
Lion Brand Baby Wool (Pear, Blue Bell)
Acrylic Baby Safe Crocheted Eyes

isn't he cute?!? he's stripey!

i had so much fun making him and i followed the pattern notes i took while making the spikey fishie and it worked perfectly (which means it's ready to write up and share soon!) these fishie's are so cuddly and squishie!

and now... what is this giveaway that i keep hinting about?

well... how about a MINI FISHIE!

mini fishie:
3" tall, approx. 7" lips to tail
Lion Brand Baby Wool (Sprout, Orchid)
Acrylic Baby Safe Crocheted Eyes

isn't he the cutest!

my mini fishie is about 1/3 of the size of my squishie fishie design and i have big plans for him! not only will he be another custom fishie to add to my shop opening (uh, what! yup more info on that coming soon!!) but he's also going to join up with his mini friends to make some fun mobiles!

ok. so how do you win this cute little green guy? 3 simple steps...

2. share the giveaway! you can share a link to this giveaway post on Facebook or Twitter or Google+... or all three if you feel super share-y. it's really easy... just click up there on the blogger bar where it says "share" and pick your platform!

3. leave a comment on this giveaway post! let me know in your comment that you've completed step 1 & 2 and be sure to leave me your name and a way to get ahold of you (email, twitter name, etc.)
