The Bear's Blanket Giveaway (closed)

Winner Update: Melted Crayons (#10) as chosen by Random.org




A while back, I posted about the importance of putting your buddies to bed each night.  Apparently they like to be tucked in nice and snug.


And apparently they prefer personalized blankets.


(Don't look too closely, you won't see any ribbon-worthy quilting here - just a love of fabrics and stuffed buddies.)


How fun would it be for your child to receive some mail addressed to their special friend and find this inside?
I've made a bear-sized quilt and pillow to share, modelled by our sleepy friend Rabbit below.


All it needs is a name tag.

One happy bear/rabbit/doll/sock monkey will receive the cotton, linen and flannel toy quilt and the wool-stuffed pillow.  The winner can email me the name of their child's loved toy and I'll add a name tag to the quilt. 

TO ENTER:  Simply leave a comment below.  Giveaway open to anyone anywhere.  Please leave me your email address or make sure it is publicly accessible on your blog profile (not too many are).  Giveaway open until Saturday September 11th at which time I will choose a winner via Random.org.

What a darling post! I'll decline the entry privilege, as I've got twins...but know someone will adore this little bear blankie! Hmmm, I'd better find my scraps and get my sewing machine warmed up! Thanks for the inspiration!

I know a little "brown puppy" who'd love to have his/her own blankie (gender changes everyday!)!

I love this! We'd have to choose one of four special friends - mr. bear, another soft bear, funny bunny, and chris christmas - to receive this cute quilt. If we are lucky enough to win! Thank you for hosting this fun giveaway.

My 3 year old granddaughter would love a new cover for Jessica, her pretend baby sister doll. Sometimes her name is changed to Aleeshia, we're not sure why.Thanks for a fun giveaway.

My monkey uses any doll/animal accessories for herself. So I guess the dolls will have to go to the mattresses for the cute nighty night blanket and pillow.

Absolutely adorable! My daughter's favorite buddy right now is Red Fraggle (yes, of the OLD show Fraggle Rock!)! Red is now a traveling buddy as well as sleepy buddy and I'm sure she'd love a blanket of her own to cuddle under. :)

Thanks!

My boy sleeps with bunny every night (yes Bunny is his name) I bet Bunny would love a blankie of his own. It would be a great slightly belated birthday present! (for my boy, Bunny's birthday is in April) :)

My little girl turns two on October 2. She is really big into playing with her babies these days. . . and blankets are a MUST at our house when it comes to baby dolls. I know she would be honored to receive such a wonderful gift from you.
