Five Little Toys that could make a huge difference

Ever since I saw the first post about the Little Flowers Project come through my facebook feed, these children have captured my heart and I have yearned to help them in a special way. But I kept asking myself, "What can I do?" I cannot go to China and love on those children like I want to. I have a limited pocketbook, though I can make small donations. I can knit, however. And people keep telling me that the little knitted animals are so cute. So, I decided to knit five little animals (I actually only knit four of them. My talented sister knit one for me!) to raffle off to raise money and hopefully spread the word about this wonderful organization. Here is the link to the Little Flowers main page, so you can read about all the different ways they help the abandoned children in China.

So how can you enter? Make a donation! For every $5.00 that you donate, you will have one chance to win one of the animals. For example, if you donate $25.00, you can apply all five chances to one toy, or one chance on each toy. After you make a donation, you should receive a confirmation e-mail. Copy and paste the donation details portion from your email receipt in the Rafflecopter widget for each animal(s) you would like to win. You need to enter your donation details for each entry.

You will need to log in to Rafflecopter with your name and email address. To make it easy to send the animals to the winners, please leave your email address in the comments section of this blog post. Good luck! The raffle will start at 12AM Monday and run through next Monday.

Please, please share this post with all your friends and family! I would really like to raise as much as I can for these children. Thank you in advance for your generosity!

If you have any questions, please email me at the address in my sidebar.

Ella Mae the country bunny

 Ella Mae is knit with a cotton/acrylic yarn. She is 10 1/2 inches tall. She is a no-nonsense bunny who works in her garden raising vegetables to share with her friends. She likes warm, sunny days to go hippity-hopping in the forest. Her sweet little smile is but a hint of the love and tenderness in her heart.

Mrs. Mulligan the monkey 

Mrs. Mulligan is knit with organic cotton and acrylic yarn. She is 9 inches tall. She is a stylish little monkey who loves to shop for all the latest fashions. Her closet is so full, she just couldn't make up her mind what to bring with her to her new home, so Mrs. Mulligan has an extra frock to change into when the mood strikes her. 

Edgar the elephant

Edgar is knit with a cotton/acrylic yarn. He is  8 1/2 inches tall. He is a shy, quiet elephant, who enjoys a good book, a cozy chair, and a rainy afternoon. Edgar is a true gentleman and listens from the heart. 

 Miss Catherine the cat

Miss Catherine is knit with 100% superwash merino wool. She is 9 inches tall. Miss Catherine is an outgoing cat, who loves to entertain in her home. She prefers tea parties with yummy little tea cakes. You will never hear a word of gossip at her parties. She is a classy lady.

Milo the mouse

Milo is knit with 100% superwash merino wool. He stands 8 inches tall. Milo is man of mystery. If you have a case that needs to be solved, Milo is your mouse. He is smart as they come. He is quick-witted as well as speedy on the run. His cute little nose can sniff out the truth in a heartbeat. 



  1. I LOVE that you are doing this. You have such a sweet spirit and a generous heart. And of course, I'm in awe of your knitting skills.
    Since I've gotten to watch the creation of these little characters, choosing which one(s) to bid on was very hard for me. I love them ALL. In the end I put all six of my entries onto Milo the Mouse. Because in a certain way, he reminds me of Peter. And besides, he's wearing a cable knit sweater. Who can resist that??
    If I win (please please please) , it gives us an excuse to get together again. :)

  2. Ella Mae arrived and she is just darling! Her dress...oh my goodness, is just so sweet.

    1. I am so glad you like her! Each one is special to me. Thank you again for making a donation to the Little Flowers project.
