Today's Special: A Giveaway!

MMMMMM.....
Hungry?
Can't eat this guy...
but he's cute to look at.
Wouldn't you agree?

It's a Hamburger!

(with all the fixins'! Lettuce, tomato, cheese and onion)

(Notice his seed bead sesame seeds)
It's a pincushion!

It's a tape measure???
(it's in the hamburger patty)


It's all 3!!

That's right!

This guy will not only hold your pins,
measure your fabric,
and just look good sittin' pretty....

He will remind you to stop sewing and grab a bite to eat!

I have to admit that this project took on a mind of it's own.
But I love him!
Hope you do too!

He's made out of all thrifted/recycled items
(except the tape measure--I bought that new yesterday)

Including felted wool sweaters,
a hideous pair of pants,
and the stuffing from a terribly ugly pillow/sewing project gone wrong.

And all this could be yours
for the low price of....

well...
a comment.

Welcome to my little spot in blogland.
And thank you for coming.

I am excited to get Today's Special on it's way to you.

It doesn't matter where you are...
I'll get it to you!
(this means I will ship internationally)

I'll keep the comments open through
June 1st, 2009
@ 6:00 am
(Canada time--oh I don't know what time! Early!)

Just leave me a comment
and tell me how you would dress your burger...

Do you like ketchup?
Mayo?
Crushed potato chips?

What??!

Have a happy giveaway day!

That is a tape measure I might not lose and a burger isn't a burger without cheese, bacon and honey mustard.

***LIZ*** said...

Courtney said...

cutest little thing ever! I like my burgers with ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato, and cheese. Sometimes though, just cheese and some ketchup.

Amanda said...

That has to be the coolest funkiest pin cushion EVER!!

3 things in one - how could you beet that.

Speaking of beet, I am Aussie so to dress my burger you HAVE to put beetroot on it. A burger just isn't the same without beetroot.

Jaime said...

You do not even know how bad I love/need this! What a freakin' cute idea! I am crossing my fingers on this one! and me toes! hehe.

Digital Misfit said...

Now that is one fabulous (and calorie-free) burger!

One of the strangest burgers that I have ever had was at this fascinating place called The Works. There you can order 100% beef burgers with the strangest toppings you would never imagine.
My partner and I decided to go and choose the scariest burger for each other.
For him, I chose a beef burger topped with poached pear slices, honey, carmelized onions and blue cheese.
For me, he chose one that had beet slices, pineapple, carmelized onions, and a fried egg!
It was surprisingly tasty!

These days I stick with lettuce, tomato and onion :)

Ammie said...

LOL! How cute! I love it. (I like to dress my burger in cheese. After that, it needs some mustard and a dab of ketchup. If tomatoes and lettuce are handy, he'll be an extra pretty burger.)

Deb said...

My kids love felt food so much (okay, so do I)! I love burgers with ketchup (tomato sauce to us Aussies) and mayo.

B said...

A reminder to stop what I'm doing and eat hey? I need it just for that reason. I swear my sewing room is like a casino. No windows, no clocks, and they pump in oxygen.

I like just about anything but relish on my burgers. Not that I don't like pickles, I love those, just not relish.

Super Fun Mama said...
