Comment on the blog or connect with us on Twitter for your chance to win a copy of Jeanette Lim’s book, Big Little Felt Universe, or a complete felted grill set!

Our friends at Lark Crafts sent us over this adorable book and we just can’t seem to put it down. Felt projects are just too darn cute, and they are a great way to reinforce hand sewing skills, too.

Here is the book description:

Enter the imaginative universe of crafting with felt, with this irresistible collection featuring a super-cute Asian-inspired aesthetic. Twelve “sets” include more than 70 projects, from fruits and a felt knife for “slicing” them to a show-stopping birthday cake with decorations and detachable candles. Hundreds of photos and full-size templates make the crafting easy.

Sounds cool, right?! Until Tuesday, April 19th at 12 p.m. EST one person could win a copy of this great book. The author is also giving away a complete felted grill set, which included the the grill, a hamburger (with cheese, lettuce, onions, and tomato), a hotdog (with mustard swirl) and a bottle of ketchup and mustard — all handsewn from felt! One person will receive the book, and another person will get to win the set.

To enter, answer the following question in the Comment section below, or via Twitter: What was the last item you sewed by hand? If submitting an answer via Twitter, be sure to include the @BurdaStyle tag and the hashtag #comment2win.

Good Luck!

- David @ BurdaStyle

    the last thing I hand sewn is a cathedral window bag. I used dark green fabric as the base and all the flowers scraps I could find just in time for spring. My next one is yo-yo quilt. I already made hundreds of yo yo already!

    I only close the last couple stiches of an opening by hand and I´m not patient and talented enough to sew a whole object just by hand. I probably should get more practice in that.
