SOGGIBOTTOM CHRISTMAS BEAR GIVE A WAY


December the 7th is birthday day in the cottage tomorrow.

It is also the anniversary of the date we moved in here.

Here is the small mohair Soggibottom Bear I made last week.... I don't normally name Soggibottom bears, this little guy has a hat that looks like a christmas pudding and a festive green ribbon around his neck. He has ultra suade paws and sewn claws.
He's also got a very soggibottom, full of lead shot, so he is small, but quite heavy.
I haven't made him for a child to play with, he is all artist bear.
All he needs is a new window to look out of.

He could be yours, depending where in the world he goes, you might not have him before Christmas. No rules, you just have to LEAVE A COMMENT, all very easy "stuff".

No special blogger rules, it's open to anyone, and everyone, anywhere.

If your not a blogger you can still enter, if you email me I will add your name to the list. Only one go. No sneaking in twice.....I will check .........

Closing date for the last comment is December 14th. A WHOLE WEEK.....

Tony, Amie and the mob (Frank, Hannah, Mew and Fluffs) will pull out one of the names from a Christmas hat on December 15th............As long as you leave me some kind of contact or we won't know where to send him........he's all yours.



Perkins, the Soggibottom bear and William of Orange aren't included, they are Soggibottom Cottage bears but the little guy could be yours.

GOOD LUCK. Don't forget if your not in it you can't win it. x x x


I'm sure not many other give a ways add a footnote.....I just love being different..
Bloggers thank you for all your comments so far, don't forget this is OPEN TO EVERYONE..... in any country in the world.
EVERYONE, ANYWHERE.........email me if you can't leave a comment and I will add your name..........or number as that is the way we have decided to make the draw.....
No names in the hat, just numbers......then we will look to see which number comment has won.....We hope you feel this is fair....we also promise to give the hat a really, really good shake....

This bear is so cute, as all of your bears. While I do follow your blog, I appreciate you letting me know you were having a giveaway (I would have hated to have overlooked it). I'll be posting shortly about your delightful giveaway on my blog for sharing insights on contests & giveaways.

Have a very Merry Christmas! And hug your bears for me!

Your Little bear is so precious? I love teddy bears. I think I love them more so now that I am older as when I was a child, the Teddy bears were so hard not cuddly & soft like today.

Merry Christmas

I love the little bear you made and if I were to win, I am sure he would love the view from my window here on the Isle of Man, He could sit looking at the sea view from my bedroom window :0 **fingers crossed***

Wonderful family of bears you have! I've had a few Christmas bears, but the girls usually ended up wanting them and they became year round friends...now that the girls are in college, I could begin a Christmas bear tradition! Would love for soggibottom to be the 'firstborn' of his kind! thanks.

sudukc said...

Laurie said...

I have a wonderful window for this little guy to look out - it's a busy window with lots of walkers and cars going by and a fence that the birds like to perch on. I think he would really like it here! Thank you for a chance to win this cutie :) Merry Christmas!

2ne said...

I love teddy bears so count me in. I'll post about it on my blogg. Whishing you a nice Christmastime.

Heckety said...

I really don't see what's so special about having a bottom full of lead shot? I have a very heavy bottom too- but no one is posting pretty photos of me on their blog with a nice hat and smart green ribbon. I'm very jealous of your Bear in fact...

Of course the Soggibottom bear is beautiful, look who made him! I have my Dad's childhood bear, and Noel, given to me by a dear new friend. Three bears would be a collection, so I'm told. Wonderful job, Midge! Someone will be very fortunate indeed.

Hanne said...

I love the teddybear and i think he want to come and see Norway. Soooo pick me:-)
