ElJay Plushie - Stuffed animals and MORE (TWO prizes!) {Handmade Giveaway #2 US}

Hippie grazing in our yard.
A few weeks ago, I saw this great giveaway on Crum's This n' That and I just had to enter. The prize was a Hippo plushie and a little pillow with a hippo appliqued onto it - both fleece - from El Jay Plushie on Etsy. Little Guy's favorite books from the library have been Sandra Boynton stories and, recently, he's been asking to check out The Belly Button Book more times than I care to read it. (Hey, the good thing is he knows the words by heart and now he "reads" it to me!) It's about hippos and how much they love their belly buttons!

I have been informed that Hippie is a very polite hippo who loves sharing his pillow with others!
When our prize arrived, it was so much fun to watch him open it up! Out hippo had a big green bow tied around his neck and was as soft and fuzzy as ever. Little guy was in love at once and named him Hippie. Now, this particular hippo was born without a belly button (gasp!), so we found a teeny-tiny blue button and sewed it on for him.

Leah carries a ton of other animals and pillows in her Etsy shop. I just love this set Three Craft-Style Rattles, don't you? In fact, I am going to give one of you this set. I chose it because I think that, just because they are rattles, they can really be played with by children of all ages. And, with all of the flowers blooming around here, I'm really in the "spring spirit" and these colors and that great big flower are irresistible!

This listing is for three fleece rattles in a very simple craft style. The first is a flower rattle in three fleece colors with seams on the OUTSIDE, giving it a very unique and simple craft look. Please note that the flower rattle was sewn with a dark thread, so that it would stand out and have a crafty look to it. The second is a cube rattle with six different fleece colors, one for each side/panel. The third is a triangle shaped rattle in six different fleece colors with a heart patch on one panel.

The flower measures approximately 8" x 5", The cube approximately 2.5" x 2.5" and the triangle rattle approximately 1.5" x 2".

All three have been softly stuffed with a rattle in each one. The rattles have a clear and pleasant sound.

Here is what Leah has to say about her work:

"My favorite things to make are hand-cut original patchwork fleece baby pillows, original soft fleece baby rattles and stuffed animals with my own original fleece appliques.

I love the feeling I get from making and giving these adorable items. They are hugged and held and provide comfort and love to children and adults alike. There is a certain satisfaction in knowing I made that cuddly bundle of cuteness."

In addition to the Three Rattles Set, Leah has generously offered to add this cute Lion to the giveaway! I can't believe it! This guy is just too cute for words!

Dark brown, light brown and white fleece make up this adorable handmade plush lion. He has brown and black safety eyes and a dark blue ribbon around his neck. He stands 10.5" tall and 8" wide. He is perfect for a baby shower or a collector. Soft and cuddly. He has a hand stitched closure just above his tail.
