I think it is high time we had a competition here at Handmade Kids  Who doesn’t like winning something, and winning a cute handmade item is even better.

So for the last few days I have been tossing and turning with this, do I make it easy, or do I make it a bit harder and interesting, such a dilema.  So I went the interesting option, after all, in my life I can do with all the entertainment I can get.

So if you would like the chance to win this handknitted doll, see the details below.  She really is really lovely with some absolutely gorgeous detailing.


So here are the rules:

1  You need to tell me your daggiest or worst attempt at creating something homemade.  It can be anything, baking, sewing any craft you like!  Now don’t be embarrassed we know there is a lot of talent out there when it comes to creating, but I am sure there are many like me who give it a go, but it just isn’t up to scratch.  I can even post photos of my shonky christmas decorations if it will help.  Just tell me about  your attempt in the comments section. 

 2 The competition is open to Australian residents only, if you win, you must have an Australian postal address.

3 You must leave your website or email address so I can contact you should you win.

I have always loved reading and one of my many favourite books would be Enid Blytons “The Magic Faraway Tree”.  Even now as an adult I will still pick it up and read those magical tales that Enid was brilliant at creating.

The most popular searches that brings readers to Handmade Kids would be those seeking items on fairies and princesses.  So with that in mind, I have decided to indulge in the fantasty world of fairy tales and bring you some more handmade finds all things  magical.


Pinky the very cute clothspin doll from BeezTings



Red Rose Twinkle Dress from Saphire Secrets.  I have mentioned it before and will again, Saphire Secrets is the perfect place to go when looking for fairy items, they have everything from wands to wings.


Another perfect store for all things fairies is Fairy Frocks.  I just didn’t know where to start here, too many gorgeous sparkly things.  The ladybird costume above is just one of the many great costumes on offer.


How special are these tutu’s by Baby Hoot from Tasmania.  You can get your own by visiting Millie Molly Moo.



Oh my giddy Aunt has the most gorgeous handmade fairy wings, decorated with glitter they are sure to capture a child’s imagination.  And you might even find a matching wand and headbands.
