Happy World Turtle Day! (Giveaway)

World Bee Day inspired a family conversation that went something like this …

Husband: So, if there is a World Bee Day, there must be a World Turtle Day?
I: I don’t know!
Son #2: According to Google, “World Turtle Day” is on May 23rd.
Husband: You should write another blog for that!
I: ?!?!?
Husband: Maybe you can do a giveaway for a PennyTURTLE™?

So, thanks to my husband, and in celebration of World Turtle Day, here is your chance to WIN A PennyTURTLE LOOM KIT FROM THE FIRST BATCH, which will be launched June 1st, 2020!

  1. Not sure yet what I would make and I also like to collect looms that I dont own yet.

  2. I have always LOVED little things. So I will make little teenie turtles, flowers, birds, and whatever 3D things I get inspired with once I feel that wonderful little loom!!! Thank you!

  3. Oh my gosh! I was sitting here weaving red hexies on my newly acquired Tiny Turtle loom this morning (to make some red poppy mug rugs for Memorial Day) and was wondering if there was a smaller loom!!!! Then I get your new post for World Turtle Day, and lo and behold there is a smaller one! Oh I hope I win one!!

  4. I will make geometric designed shawls or scarves combining the Penny with other Turtle loom shapes.

  5. I keep drooling over the turtle looms. I don’t have one…yet. Might as well start small. ❤️

  6. Well of the looms I have tried in the past 5-6 years of weaving, I have not yet tried a turtle loom! Always curious about something new!

  7. My 1st thought is for buttons, have seen that one on the MWAL this week; but the tortoise shell is our oyster :>)

  8. I don’t have a specific project in mind yet but smaller looms are good for filling in places in projects that would otherwise have a gap.

  9. I LOVE Turtle looms. I want them all. What will I make with a Penny Turtle? Hmmmm…. little flowers to start with and then of course I’ll wait for Gabi to post patterns of her creations!

  10. Teeny tiny amigurumi-type toys and flowers! Plus little looms tend to multiply at my house…lol.

  11. I would love a penny turtle loom. I have been looking at the turtle looms, and this would be a good place to start my collection!

    1. What a great idea to celebrate turtles! I made turtle ornaments with the 2” loom and think it would be adorable to make mini turtles!

  12. I love the turtle looms. The penny turtle looms is especially cute. I could make interesting patterns with it.

  13. I honestly would love to learn to loom. I’ve been a huge craft fan and I would love to create some fun creations for my walls and home. I love the size of small, it’s cute and can be perfect for small areas. Plus, it looks much easier to learn how to design smaller things for a beginner learner than using a large one. ☺♥☼

  14. I mean, I’d make jewelry…of course, I already have this loom, but you can have multiples, right? Lol

  15. Oh boy — so many cool things one could make with this little beauty! Someone mentioned buttons, which was my first thought. Perhaps a cute little embellishment for attaching straps to a loom-knitted bag?
    Yes, that sounds like an excellent idea! 🙂

  16. Happy World Turtle 🐢 Day! I love your Turtle looms. I’m currently working on the “2020 Patchwork Project “. I like the name Penny Turtle, and making flowers would be fun or mini pillows.

    Congrats 🥳

  17. I would try to make something 3D, like a pencil wrap. That way I can send it in the fall with my kiddo when they return to school (hopefully!) Or, a decorative sandwich wrapper to go around a zip-top bag. Or, a scrunchie! Yes! I would weave them up and put elastic in the middle and make a cool scrunchie.

  18. I totally love collecting all Turtle loom’s 🐢 I would say this size of loom would be awesome for jewelry making, buttons and for sampling yarns on💖

  19. Happy World Tuurtle Day! I’d make Earrings! And Christmas ornaments. And buttons! Lots and lots of buttons.

  20. I’ve only discovered small looms in the last couple of months and already own three of your looms! I would have already owed more if they hadn’t of run out of stock! Pin looming has become one of my all time favorite crafts and your looms have contributed to that! I also love making jewelry and can see lots of possibilities with the penny loom! I can’t wait to start weaving!!

  21. It is an awesome size for seeing samples of yarns as fabric and keeping records of home dyeing. I love hexagon flowers and a scarf of these would be a real field of them 🙂 I also like the idea of doll clothing to match daughter clothing using different sized looms.. I really know she would also love that idea 😉

  22. I love making small things, I’ve made the sloth with my turtle loom, an afghan, a cowl and most recently some candle mats or doilies with the center embroidered! I’d love a little turtle to play with! Many Blessings to all!

    1. Since it looks like it is for smaller yarn, I might use it with the Elongon hexes to make flowers for a vest that I’m designing.

  23. Happy World Turtle Day!!! I am unsure exactly what I’d make; however, the size might indicate a throw for doll bed — or kitty bed. Would be fun to use of yarn scraps & see how many I could gather up — those are my thoughts re. What are you going to make with your PennyTURTLE. Thx for the opportunity to participate.

  24. This looks like fun! I’m always interested in projects to keep my hands busy and this will even help me use my stash. Thanks for the chance to win 😊

  25. What a cool idea. I would make jewelry with a penny loom with my 5 year old grand. Joan in MS, USA

  26. I would love to have this little turtle loom to make a little granny flower blanket for my 16” Sasha Dolls to go with their bed.
