Color Squares from Little Bits ~ Giveaway CLOSED

Congratulations #356 Your Impact Matters ~ I have sent you an email!

image

Many of you probably already know the story behind Little Bits, but for those of you who don’t, you are welcome to read this post I wrote on my blog awhile back. Little Bits is still going strong and is one of our main sources of financial donations for our mission work. We are faith-supported missionaries, which means we don’t have an organization paying us. We get paid all through donations and Little Bits is one of our main sources! We are SO grateful to my mom and the hours and hours of work she puts into Little Bits to help earn money for us and God’s work.

You may have seen these adorable Color Squares on my blog recentlyIMG_2917

They have become a fast favorite of all 3 kids, especially Ladybug.IMG_9386

IMG_9393

Even Krash enjoys them, especially when they act as color coordinated pillows and blankets for his Battle Force 5 guys.IMG_9534

IMG_9539

We also use them for all sorts of other activities. They are about 3”x3” and are each padded inside with batting to make them like mini pillows. They are lightweight so we can even play catch with them inside.IMG_2941

On the Little Bits site, you can purchase a set of 10 {1 of each color} for $10.00 or a set of 20 {2 of each color} for $18.00.IMG_2925

My mom has offered to give away a set of 10 colors, 2 of each color, to one of my readers!!!

BUY IT & support our mission work!

If you’d like to purchase a set of Color Squares or any other Little Bits, you can do that here! The best way to purchase something from Little Bits with the desire to support our mission work is to select something from the premade section. My mom makes these items in advance so they are already done and ready to ship. You can see all premade items available on the Little Bits blog.

MAKE IT

If you know how to sew, just cut squares about 3-4” in size and fill with a tiny bit of batting. Sew edges together and then trim with pinking shears! Pretty easy for someone who actually knows how to sew a bit {NOT me}.

WIN IT! CLOSED

Mom has a set of 20 color squares all ready to ship to one special winner!

jess_hak said...

I really love all of the stuff! I guess that if I had to choose something other than the color squares I would buy some toy bags. I could always use more stuff to store toys together in. I do love that the bibs snap instead of velcro!
