Susanna and Lily of Crafts2Cherish ETSY shop based in Dublin, Ireland is offering us this stunning Adeline-Black French Style Beret made from pure wool-with hand felted red Rose brooch a priceless work of art for this first pay-it-forward giveaway. They are textile artists, working primarily in felt making. Felted wool fabric is one of the most ancient textiles. Their entire collection is created using the highest quality of natural and sustainable materials. They use a variety of raw wools which are selected for their felting characteristics, texture and wear ability. They are hand-dyed and hand carded by them to provide a wide palette range, and then hand-felted by layering and building up color and texture to achieve a soft and flexible felted item. All things are one of a kind and handmade with great care and attention to detail.
Hopefully, this giveaway will inspire everyone that enters to do one little deed today to help someone- a loved one, a neighbor, a co-worker, or some online that has touched your heart. Try to make a habit out of it- just one tiny gesture each day. If everyone did this, imagine the effect on the entire world. It’s amazing to think about the possible results. So readers let pay-it-forward. I know everyone of you knows someone that would just adore this stunning designer hat, but cannot afford it or would be uplifting to someone going through a difficult time. With the economy in such a mess think what a new hat would mean to someone special.

You can tell as little or as much about the person as you and they would be comfortable with. Can anyone think of the best way to select a winner? Maybe all the editors on Craft Gossip would be good judges. This giveaway will run from today March 2, 2010 thru March 17th 2010 a perfect awarding date for and Irish shop. Wow! I am lusting after everything in their shop, what spectacular designers, but I do love this hat.
