You see that little dachshund brooch? He's really cute, right? Well, he was destined for my Etsy shop a week or so ago when tragedy struck. I had just finished making him and picked him up to walk across the room to get something and proceeded to drop him! No, not on the table or the floor, which wouldn't exactly be a tragedy seeing as he's not real. I did, however, drop him right into my coffee cup. Yep, I have really good aim!

Needless to say, I immediately gave him a bath. And while I don't recommend dunking my felt pieces in coffee and then soaking in soapy water, he seems to be just fine. I took these photos after the accident, and you can see he's still in one piece and pretty cute.

But seeing as he's been through a lot already, I don't feel right about listing him in my Etsy shop. I only list things that are perfect (or as perfect as I can make them). I had planned on just keeping him for myself, but I thought maybe it would be a fun giveaway?

I'm also going to include this little butterfly brooch. No accidents have befallen this pretty lady, but I realized the listing expired some time ago and I forgot to renew might as well give it away too!

I'm also in the midst of a studio clean-out and trying to make room for new stuff, so I'll probably throw in a few more fun things as well.

Just leave a comment if you'd like to win. Open to anyone, worldwide. I'll announce the winner next Saturday.

***Giveaway Closed*** Thanks to everyone who entered! :)

    I'd like to join! :)

  2. I never knew dogs like swimming around in coffee. I would like to join in too!

  3. Super cute! Please enter me :)


  4. Adorable!! As I have a real genuine "long dog" named Henri, I'd love to win this!

  5. He is adorable! He would cheer up any cardigan and I'd love to win him :)


  6. Oh, that totally sounds like something I would do! But he's too cute not to go to a good home :)
    I'd love to be entered in your giveaway!

  7. Me Me! I want a coffee dipped pup and a pretty little butterfly:)
    So sweet!

  8. Oh, I am in love with him already and looks like he's a bit of a coffee addict like me. Though I try not to swim in coffee. :)

  9. At least you didn't drop your phone in there, as my best friend has done more than once. :-)

    I'd love to win! I know exactly who I'd give the puppy brooch to.

  10. Lady, do I have a coat that pin would be PERFECT on! The doxie, I mean. I have another idea for the butterfly—that is, I would pin it to another jacket. A lighter one because it's a symbol of warm weather and dogs have fur.

    Okay, I've said enough. I sound like a goof.

  11. Super cute! I love them both and would give them a good home :)

  12. poor he was wired after that fall.
