Friday FREEBIE - Doggy treats

friday freebie header 500

Happy Friday everyone. 

Well well how come such a simple idea could create such interest.
I have created lots and lots of different items over the years,
but my doggy cushion has certainly hit the spot! 

Firstly thank you to everyone that joined in with last weeks Friday FREEBIE,
it is always great to read your comments.
You have given me several ideas for other animal silhouette ribbons. 

As we are away again – yes a different city, different hotel room.
Although I must admit this hotel room is rather nice.  Tony got us upgraded,
and we even have a room over looking the river. If you have forgotten where we are this week,
we are in London at Excel for the Hobbycrafts show.

No random org this week, so lets go with our room number again. 

Number 03 = WendyL 

WendyL left us this comment.

Congratulations WendyL  please email Bev with your address details
and she will post you the WANT IT ALL Animal Silhouette Ribbons.
You have until Thursday 10th April to claim your prize.

So you liked my doggy cushion – poor Bev said the phone was going crazy yesterday
with customers wanting the whole set.
Buttons, felt, ribbons, template and the cushion cover. Oh and a different dog shape!
Ooops sorry Bev.


So for this weeks Friday FREEBIE you can design your own cushion.

Pick any silhouette from our Animal Silhouette ribbons
(IT MUST be one of the animals on the ribbon)

silhouette ribbons

and I will turn it into a template for you. 
AND the animal ribbon colour of your choice,
AND the Black Basics 2 Go buttons,
AND the black felt.

So all you will need is the cushion and the time to make it!

Add your name to the list AND leave us a comment with your chosen animal and colour.

Nearly forgot – do come and see us today and Saturday at the Hobbycrafts show at Excel London,
on stand C28. Find out more about this show here.
Have a great weekend.


  1. Hi
    Thanks for the win it is great.

    Cushions ?Mmmmm
    I would choose a doggy cushion with a Bichon Frise (I think thats how you spell it) And give it to my friend Susie as she has three of these cute doggies. And it would have to be pink as she is a very 'pink' lady. xxx

  2. Yay! That cushion looks fabulous!

    I think I still have to stick with those dinosaurs because they are so stinking good-looking. And I am sure every little boy would fancy a cushion with them. And maybe with apple color...


  3. I would choose dogs so if you gave a Yorkshire Terrier or some sort of terrier that would be great and i love pink! Thanks for the chance to win the fab kit! x

  4. I love dogs. I have 2 Chihuahuas and they are my absolute fave babies. The color I love best is green. Thanks so much for a chance to win! Hugs, Robin

  5. Hi, ummm, I was thinking horse, the galloping one with the flowing tail, although maybe the legs would be a challenge?? or bunnies, of course. I love the one stretching his neck up. I think your colour scheme was perfect. The button colour was gorgeous and the white so clean. I think part of the appeal of your cushion was the clean look and the button dog is so cute. I often try to put buttons together in an area and they don't seem to look right, although I was pleased with the effect I managed with this card Maybe I just don't have the right buttons! Your colours are so gorgeous and glossy. Off to check them out.......

  6. Well there's an opportunity too fab to pass up!! It would have to be a horse cushion for me and the elegant cream and black of the scottie example looks stunning!! xx

  7. That's easy - the kitty and pink! My two favourites! And yes, your doggy cushion is AWESOME! I love it!

  8. I love parrots the best as I have five of them. They are my babies. Since you don't have birds I would have to pick the kitties. I had cats as a child and they are still dear to my heart. My fave color is green. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  9. Lovin the new puppy ribbon gotta have it :)

  10. Dinosaur for sure one of my nieces is so into them she would love it for her bed :) thanks for the chance

  11. I got my animal ribbons this morning in the post, they are gorgeous, thank you, xxx
