Scrapbooking Giveaway Day

scrapbooking giveaway day
Dolls and Day dreams
This weekend, one commenter will win a cute Panda Plushie Pattern from Dolls and Daydreams.

Sarah Hanson is a UK girl living in the US. She designs patterns for plushies that are just gorgeous, and her store is bursting with cute doll and critter patterns that are sure to delight!
The more I read about Sarah, the more I like her and her work.

“I specialize in Fun & Easy Step by Step Photo Tutorial Patterns so that even a beginner sewer will be able to make dolls and softies just like mine!

When I was a little girl my Nanna taught me to sew & my first project was a little rag doll – I was in love! But when I brought a store doll pattern I was shocked at how hard it was to understand and so unhappy with my finished friend. So I kept creating my own doll & softie designs for my friends & family.

My life took an interesting turn after I organized a charity doll drive for the children of Haiti. I designed and offered an easy free doll pattern and the response was amazing. We collected over 500 dolls for the children and have since continued to collect, make & send out 1000’s to children in need all over the world. Through this wonderful work I received so many kind comments and requests for more designs and patterns and thus Dolls And Daydreams was born.”

You can become a fan of her facebook page here.

To enter, just leave a comment on this post describing your most treasured toy, childhood or adulthood!

Entries close at midnight Thursday UK time and the winner will be posted Friday evening, so be sure to check back to see if it’s your lucky day!

Good luck!

  3. Jessica Holton Says:

    Eeek Hope this is the right place to comment I’d love to win Sarah’s pattern she makes such amazing patterns! My favorite toy is a doll that my grandma traded an afghan for when I was a baby. This doll is so amazing and over 30 years old now and still looks great and has an amazing yellow vintage(now) dress and huge hand embroidered eyes. I’m thrilled that we actually found a very similar doll at a craft show two years ago so now my little girl has her very own dolly like mom’s. I love using Sarah’s patterns and my little girl also has a little cute school girl that she helped pick out fabrics for. PS hope this is open to the US too ;)

  23. Sally Says:

    My favourite toy when I was young was my Strawberry Shortcake doll that blew kisses. It was taken away from me for a while thinking i was allergic to the scent. Devastating at the time. But i got it back. My daughter now plays with her :-)

  24. Skooks Says:

    My most favorite when I was a kid, hands down, was my dolly. She didn’t even have a proper name. I just dragged her around and called her “my beautiful dolly”. Nowadays my favorites are all of my toy sewing machines. :)

  25. Tina Says:

  26. ana paula waaijenberg Says:

    We have these children books in Brazil where the girl lives in a farm with her Gramma. She has a rag-doll that is alive. My father gave me one when I was about 4. I’ve never been a doll kind of girl (hated Barbies) but I love that shaggy little one until today. She is called “Emilia, a boneca-gente”

    Love the plushie – would love to have a go at making one!! My favourite toy was a Tiny Tears doll that I was given when my sister was born! She was my baby and I still have her sat on the bed in my craft room! My mum and nan made clothes for her and she went everywhere with me for years! I think I managed to knit some scarves for her but that was about it then!

  35. Penny Says:

    My Mum made me a new soft toy every Christmas it was left on the top of my stocking for me to open when I woke at 4am and go back to sleep cuddling so I have a whole host of special toys. I am keeping the tradition going and this panda would be just the thing for my twin daughters christmas toy this year.

    Cute patterns!

  42. Kerry Bruce Says:

    My most loved doll when I was little was a rag doll called Victoria that my mum made, years later she made one for each of my three girls. One of my daughters collects plush Panda’s and would be absolutely thrilled if I could win this one of Sarah’s for her as it is so unique and cute.

  43. Lynda Says:

    I was a Barbie girl. My most cherished doll, though, was a small, lavender-skinned, long-haired doll with green eyes that lit up and flashed when you gently shook her. It was a surprise from my mother :)

  49. Caro_frenchy Says:

    what a nice Panda, I love it !! It makes me think of my sister whose nickname is panda (because of her non waterproof mascara and tears).
    My most treasured toy is a blue teddy bear that I have since I was born, it was given to me by my godfather and it has been everywhere with me (followed me in every single travels), been squished by my hugs, and soaked with my tears ! He as been so far my most faithful friend, and kept all my secrets !

  50. Jennie Says:

    My favourite toy now is a teddy called Duncan that my now husband gave me on our first Christmas together. My childhood favourite was a handmade bunny in a dinner jacket that my Granny and Grandad’s neighbour gave me. My little girl Matilda is 21 months and I am really getting into making her toys. My favourite so far is the owl I made for her 1st birthday. I love the panda and will be checking out Sarah’s other work. xxx

  55. Michelle Says:

  56. Krystal Says:

    I still have my beanie babies from my grandma! She used to get us a beanie baby for each holiday and our birthdays. It was something we collected together. Now that she is no longer with us, they are my way of remembering her. :)

  57. Bek Says:

    My Pop gave me a Lion called Leo. He was my best friend from the moment we laid eyes on each other. He was orange and yellow and had the kindest eyes. He had a pull string and used to talk to me. He always shared my secrets and told me “ Your braver than a lion”. <3

  58. Lianne K W Says:

    My most precious toy is a large doll with vintage cord dress & pinny completely hand made by my god mothers mum. I can’t remember exactly when I was given her but I remember her from very very young. A few years ago her ‘maid style’ hat went missing and I was gutted!… Still am!
    I’d love this panda pattern to create gorgeous bears for my LO’s to treasure

  59. Sam Gibson Says:

    My most treasured toy as a child was my “My Child” doll that my mum bought me when I was 7. I loved her red hair and gorgeous little face. She was unfortunately lost during a move in my late teens, but I was lucky enough to find one just like her a couple of years ago, so it is one of my most treasured items now :)

  60. Nicole Says:

    My most treasured toy is a bear my aunt gave me when I was six weeks old and in the hospital. The doctors thought I might die but God did a miracle and I completely recovered. The doctors could not explain medically why I began to get better. I still have the bear and when I see it it reminds me of what a gift life is.

  62. Helen Says:

I still have him now a little threadbare but still loveable.

    I loved my big stuffed bear, it was huge and bigger than me when I first got it. I could hardly carry it around. I was sad when it fell apart and my mum told me it was going to get better and the dolls hospital. It was a very sad little girl until my treasured bear was back in my arms all fixed. I still wonder whatever happened to him 40 years later. Would love to still have him.

  87. Geraldine Says:

    I just love Sarah’s patterns, and made them for my babies. I have made dolls for 45 years and I love them all like children, Even throw I don’t know where they all are now. I just found out on my 60th birthday, that my nice (now 45) secretly dreamed of having one of my two headed dolls when she was little. It made me sad knowing I didn’t make her one. I make them and give them away. Dolls do make children happy and feel loved, boy or girl. I loved all my dolls.

  88. Jo-Ann G Says:

    What a cute panda! My treasured toys was a large panda teddy bear. I still have him today looking a little worse for wear. Also a holly hobbie sewing machine, that sadly was lost during a house move, I wish I still had it to hand over to my girls.

    Love that beautiful Panda. I also love the idea of making a doll for a child in Haiti. I am going to look into this. My favorite toy is a bear which belonged to my beloved godmother, who passed away a couple of years ago. I hug it everyday and think of her.

  92. Jane Says:

    I absolutely love Sarah’s site. Fun!!!!
    My favorite doll was a very stiff, tall walking doll – my aunt bought me when I was at a supermarket. We had a man get it from the very
    tippity top shelf. I thought that was so very
    special. This had to be about 56 years ago!!
    Wow!! I love that Panda!

  96. Bronwen Says:

    My favourite toy was my bear Bertha. I loved her! My mum made her for me when I was just one, and the story goes that she hadn’t yet stitched on the eyes or embroidered the face, and gave her to me to cuddle, and I wouldn’t give her back! So Bertha had no eyes or facial features other than her nose. When I was older, I thought about adding some, but I realised that then, she just wouldn’t be Bertha!

  104. Gail Says:

    I don’t remember a treasured toy as a child but my daughter had a teddy bear named Teddy, go figure. When she was about 5 the summer before she went to kindergarden, she lost Teddy at the airport in Nashville, TN. When she graduated from college, she became a flight attendant. I told her she only did that so she could look for Teddy in airports across the USA and around the world.

  105. Jessica Says:

    I absolutely love her patterns! My favorite childhood toy was actually a panda. My grandmother got me a giant stuffed panda and I will forever remember it as my very first teddy. He was so special to me.

  111. Claire Tubb Says:

  112. Joanne Brooks Says:

    My favourite toy(s) as ayoungster was my ‘Boy Bubby and Girl Bubby’, two dolls handmade by my mum, from Terry-toweling fabric, with felt eyes and wool hair. Of course, the girl was pink and the boy, blue of course!! :-)

  113. Kylie Figliomeni Says:

    I love Sarah’s patterns, I am addicted.

    I’m 35 years old and still have a little pink elephant that my grandmother bought before my father even met my mother, with the thought that she would give it to her first grand-daughter. In the end, I was her only grand-daughter :)

    My BooBoo Bear (from the yogi Bear cartoon) was my favorite, and my Chatty Baby!!! I do love all of Dolls&Daydreams patterns and own a coupke of them, the Monkey is my grandaughters favorite toy right now, even though she’s almost 15!

    My most treasured toy is undoubtedly my teddy bear which is made from my mother when i was a little girl. <3 I have that teddy bear since i was 5. So it means a lot to me. :) I’m fixing him every time if he needs some sewing. He became old but he is precious for me forever. And i’ll take care of him all of my life, because he did the same thing for me in my childhood.^^ If i’m so far away from my home without him, i feel still lonely in my bed like a little girl and can’t sleep… ^^ Love my teddy! <3 Have a nice day!

    My most treasured childhood toy are the two crocheted animals (a pink elephant and a crazy blue owl) made by my grandmothers (one from each).

    I also adore the camoflauge brotosaurus my sister made me in high school hom ec (she was shocked I still have it).

    My most cherished toy from childhood was my black rubber baby doll. She was so cute and soft. I have been looking for one on ebay for years, but so far have not had any luck. Mine was chewed up by my friend’s dog about 10 yrs ago.

  128. Melanie Martin Says:

    My favorite childhood toy was my carebears. I could never have too many and each one of them meant something special to me. I wish my girls appreciated toys like I did when I was there age. Times have sure changed.

    This is a hard one…I gues my favourite toy would have to have been Barbie. I must have about 200 of them and I loved making them clothes, costumes. Giving life to my imagination through this doll was wonderful. I am a little jealouse of the great items Barbie has now but am proud to say I was making my dolls into fairies and mermaids before you could store buy them. :)

    My favorite stuffed toy was a raccoon and her baby. The baby had Velcro on her tummy and the momma had it on her back so the baby could take a ride! Loved it.

    I had a giant orange and green rabbit whose name was Carrots. Looking back at pictures he was not the prettiest cuddly toy but I absolutely adored him and he had to go everywhere with us. I even made him his own passport.
