Jordi's Bundle of Beanies; a giveaway!

And so today it's the sixth of March and in honour of that -- after all, it's Autumn and my birthday month -- Girlz 4 God is officially holding a giveaway.

My super-talentedly creative friend, Jordi, crochets beanies -- owls, horses, monsters, rabbits, dinosaur's... and really, the list just goes on.

Yeah, that's right. She made that. Amazing, I know. If I tried crocheting it would probably end up looking like a demented sock or something.

Talkin' to the Artist
Jordi! Okay, so, tell us -- how come you're making the beanies?
The money is going towards my school's mission trip to the Philippines, which I am hoping very much to go on.

How long does it take to make a beanie?
It takes about an hour to make the beanies, then about 20 minutes to make the faces on them and another 10 
or so minutes to sew it all on, so about an hour and a half roughly.


Prices, sizes?
Newborn sizes to 5 months are $12. 6 months to 7 year olds are $15 and than 8 year olds to adults are $18. If i have to post a beanie it is an additional $6.60 for postage. [Although probably more for overseas. Just Emii making up something but who knows.] 

When did you discover this cool-as talent of yours? 
When i was about 9 I think, my grandma taught me to crochet. I'd seen her crocheting for years and thought, "I wanna have a go at it." It took me a few years, and patience  to get as good as I am now. I think I discovered my 'talent' as Emii calls it when I was 12 or 13.

And just think. All these years I never knew that I could have a wardrobe of cool hats.
