Fabric Flower Hairclip GIVEAWAY!!!

FINALLY!!  It's been a long time in the making, but at last I feel comfortable with having this giveaway.  What a learning process it's been!

First I found out that the glue wasn't holding the metal alligator clips onto the fabric good enough and the clips would come off when squeezed a few times. So now I reinforce the clip with additional felt.  Then when I actually slipped a clip onto my own head and it hurt, I realized that I was gluing them on upside down.  Also, earlier pieces have scotchtape as basting material 'cause it was faster than sewing. Newer pieces I've sewn instead 'cause it comes out better.  Feathers got squooshed when I didn't store them properly. Now I try to keep them all neat. Oh boy . .  . I've come a long way . . . and now I got 29 clips to give away!! 

Here's how I'm gonna do it.  As usual, Wendell will draw the names. There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner.  The top 3 winners will win three hairclips each.  The 1st place winner will get first choice, etc.   The remaining clips (20 of um) I will give to the rest of you who enter . . . at least one to each of you, depending on how many people enter the drawing.  I will number each name as they are pulled.  Hopefully, everyone who enters will win at least one clip!

To enter all you need to do is comment here or e-mail me at JalnaA@aol.com (don't forget the extra "A"). Me and Wendell are not gonna "juice" the drawing so anyone is eligible. If it's likely that I'm not gonna be able to meet up with you to give you your clip(s), can you e-mail me with your mailing address?  Also, please tell me what your top 3 favorite clips are. It'll help me choose for you according to your preferences and it'll also help me in deciding what kind of future pieces to make.  If I can make enough clips before I get bored of doing it (you know how I am), then maybe I can have another giveaway.  Hooo hooo, I'm EXCITED!!  Oh, almost forgot . . . drawing will be held next Sunday, March 18.

In no particular order, here are the hairclips. Maybe I should mention that if your baby or little girl doesn't have enough hair yet to clip these onto, you can get a headband and attach the clips to the band!
