  1. Oooh I would absolutely love to win one of these prizes, even though I’m not married to Santa! I think my favourite would be the 1st one because I LOVE your creations. I wanted to be a tester on the tummy bunny one but didn’t make it that time, and I love the owls too. Oh, and the Lil Monster, and, and, and…. Ooh they’re all so gorgeous!

    Reminds me, I’m coming up to my 1st year blogiversary, can’t believe it’s gone so quickly!

  2. Up, up and away for me – I recently bought the pattern and have made one wee balloon so far but would love the whole kit to finish 🙂 congrats on your blogiversary!

  3. I’m sitting here staring at the funny tummy bunny I made the other night for a girlfriend and I cannot decide! I would be very happy with any of them, but since I already have a few patterns, I would probably pick canine creatures or the owlery as they are the other two I haven’t quite got around to purchasing yet! Funny Tummy Bunny is simply so yummy!!

    • I Forgot to mention that I’ve never followed a blog before but for some reason yours made me want more more more! I guess that bunny has magic powers! Well done on 5 years!

  4. Congratulations on reaching the 5 year milestone – I have been following your blog for a couple of years now and I absolutely love the character you give your little critters.

    All those prizes look amazing but but I think that at a push I’d have to pick The Owlery as I have a friend who is about to give birth to her first baby and an owl mobile would make the perfect baby shower gift. Very had to choose though – you have designed too many beautiful things!

  5. Congratulations on your Five Year Blogiversary! I would love to win the Up, Up, and Away kit! My daughter is due to have a baby boy in two weeks and that would be perfect in her nursery. That is also the kit that drew me to your blog in the first place. I’ve always admired it. Another fun coincidence/fun fact: She lives right next to the park where Boise hosts a Hot Air Balloon Festival every Labor Day. We happened to be visiting this year and had a blast watching the Balloons take off and float around Boise.
    Happy Blogging!

  6. I’d normally say Prize 1 please because I love your patterns, but seeing as I have a few of the already (I know I know I really need to blog the results), I would loooove to be entered in to the draw for Prize 5 – that way if I want to make more balloons I can get my hands on those balloon panels quick smart!

    Thanks for the chance 🙂

  7. Congratulations! Five Year Blogiversary… wow, amazing!
    I would love to win the Prize n° 4: Canine Creatures. Just because my little daughter has just taken her first steps and it’s amazing how funny it looks when she just start walking!!

  8. I only just discovered your blog because of the balloon mobile pattern – which I have bought and already made. Am currently making a second for a friend. Then I am planning to move on to the owls which I love! So, for me, definitely prize 5 please because I am not sure what I would go for next. Although I suspect it will be the gorgeous little sausage dog. I look forward to seeing what else you create in the years to come.

  9. Wow! What a generous giveaway! And congratulations on FIVE years! That’s a lovely accomplishment. 🙂 I would LOVE to win Prize 3! Hot air balloons are so symbolic of adventure and new journeys, which is where I am in life right now. But I’ll be happy for whoever wins . . . because we can all enjoy your blog! 🙂 Best, Katherine

  10. Prize number 5, because it’s so hard to choose!

    Your blog has been such an inspiration for me! I stumbled across it when I was looking for nursery ideas after giving birth to my first child and your hot air balloon mobile was the springboard that I needed. I loved the whimsy of it and the idea of seeing the world from a different perspective than you might otherwise get on the ground.

    After that, I was hooked on reading your blog. Thank you for sharing yourself with the world.

  11. I was just sitting here staring at the prizes trying to decide which one I’d like the most for five minutes. I’d like to win Prize 2, the owlery. Owls are my favorite animal and they’re so cute, too! Fact: Did you know that a group of owls is called a ‘wisdom’ of owls or a ‘parliament’ of owls?

  12. Up, up and away i would love in multi, we are expecting our second bubba in January, but we dont know what we’re having (i love a surprise!) so a multi coloured one would be perfect for above their cot 🙂

  13. Congrats on your blogiversary!! It’s amazing how time flies so fast. Of course I’d love to have prize 1, the complete collection. I’m about to become a first time auntie and I’d love to shower my niece with your BEAUTIFUL creations. Best wishes for 5 more years of fun!

  14. Honestly it’s so hard to choose just one prize I’d like! Prize 1, 2, and 5 are my favorites. I absolutely adore owls and think your design is too cute! But I also love the other stuff and would like a chance to play around and create something special!

  15. I love love love the balloon mobile and would love to win it. I think it would be perfect in my infant son’s room. Congrats on 5 years!

  16. Wow , all the prizes are great! But I know without a doubt that I would want Prize #3. The hot air balloon pattern blog post was how I found this blog. I fell in love with them, and were the reason I started and continued to follow this blog. They are amazing and would love to make my own.

  17. Wow!!! I have just found your blog listed on the sidebar of Flying Blind on a Rocket Cycle and realise that I have been missing out. This is a fab giveaway too, as I have owl love I would adore the owlery prize. Thanks for the chance.

  18. Congratulations on 5 years! It has been wonderful to see all of the creations you have come up with over the years and also the creative process. I have loved making your little owls. They are just so adorable.
    I would love prize 5 please!

  19. Congrats on the anniversary! I was introduced to your gorgeous creations by a friend who gave me the owl pattern to keep my hands busy in my last few weeks of pregnancy!! I have just bought the balloon mobile pattern to get started on…. so cute!

    I would love prize 1 or 5. Even though I already have 2 of your patterns, I would love to be able to give them as gifts to my crafty friends.

    Thankyou for sharing your creativity with the world!

  20. Congrats on your blogiversary! I love all your patterns and love how they are all different! I would love to win any of the prizes, but if I had to pick one it would be the owls!
    By the way I’m am 3/4 of the way through the balloon mobile and my friend (who I also bought the pattern from) is done! She gave it to a new baby and it looks awesome! We are both really happy with the pattern and have had so much fun in the process! Thanks for being so crafty and sharing with us.

  21. Oh how exciting! I’d love to win all the patterns so I don’t have to pick a favorite creation of yours… Thanks for the opportunity!

  22. I have 2 sons, aged 2 and 4, and it was exactly 2 years ago, shortly after my youngest son was born that I just had to make him a mobile for his room (must have been the hormones fueling this urge because I was somewhat sleep deprived and overwhelmed!). This was when I came across your gorgeous owl mobile, which I had so much fun making and which my son absolutely adored, and still does! I went on to make several more owls, including Christmas themed ones, which were loved by all. I would love to win the balloon mobile kit to make for a dear friend expecting her first baby in December. Congratulations Clare, on 5 years of Craft Schmaft and for following your heart. Your blog, and your creations are a joy!

  23. wowsers what an AMAZING giveaway, it’s so generous of you to share with the lucky ones Clare. congratulations on your anniversary! I just love your patterns and have made many a mobile/softie for a very impressed recipient. (I’m quick to tell them I was just following a pattern!) I’m looking forward to seeing what you create in the next 5 years! xx

  24. Congratulations on your Bloggaversary. Five years, what an awesome achievement. I think just about everybody would love to win first prize. You have so many great patterns. I think 5th prize is also pretty awesome. There are a couple of your patterns I would really like to buy and I love to shop, so maybe that would be my first choice. I would also be happy to win the sausage roller as I think he is really cute. Your sock owls are like your signature piece, so that is also a really great prize. I also think your hot air balloon is pretty unique and would love to win that as well…. errm, so hard to choose…. FIVE. Five is my pick, but really, truly, I would be happy to win any of those prizes.

  25. Gosh! All your prizes are lovely! But if I had to choose one it would be Up, up & away. I’ve been wanting to make one of those for ages – and your balloons are the sweetest I’ve see.

    Congrats on the five year anniversary 🙂

  26. congrats on your milestone. I would love the patterns so I could make all your lovely creations. Thanks for putting up such generous prizes.

  27. Congratulations on your 5 year blogiversary! 🙂 i follow you on fb too! would absolutely love to have prize 2 the owlery – 6 months preggers here and going owl crazy for our little one 🙂 would love to have an owl mobile for the nursery. Would have to post to the heart of the Mediterranean though! Anyways big well done and keep it up! 🙂

  28. Happy Blogaversary! I love all your creations but am most in love with the balloons so would love to win that kit! Here’s to another 5 years. X

  29. I’ve only just started following your blog but I think I might actually be in love with some of your adorable little creatures! I would be delighted to win any of your prizes but the qwls are definitely my favourite because they are amazingly cute! Congratulations on 5 years of blogging. I have only just started out but hopefully I can make as splendid a job as you! xx

  30. I’d really love to win prize 2 (don’t get me wrong – I love them ALL and would love to win any of them!) but we have found out that we are having a little girl in January and I think that the owls and mobile would made a really sweet addition to her nursery for when she is here! I love to try crafty things so if I were to be able to win and make this for her I’d feel like there would be a lot of love put into it and I’d be really proud of myself – my hubby thinks it’s very cute too!

    Thanks very much for the competition xx

  31. i haven’t really been following you for that long, but once i found your blog i was so enthralled that i read all the way back to the beginning, so i made up for lost time 🙂

    Congratulations on 5 years of creating

    It wouldn’t bother me which gift i won but i would love the 1st of 5th prizes, i love creating myself and they might kick me in the bum to do something 🙂

  32. Happy 5th Blogiversary! I would love to win prize 2 or 5. I have had the pleasure of making your owl mobile and i would love to try my hand at Funny Tummy Bunny, Woof Woof and G-Raf. Thanks for the opportunity.

  33. Congrats on your blogiversary! What a great giveaway!! I love them all! If I had to choose one, probably the first one. That way I could make and remake all of the awesome stuff over and over!!

  34. Congrats on 5th anniversary. My son is two on Sunday 23sept and his only word (not counting mama and dada) is up which means anything from ‘I want this’ to ‘I’m hungry’ so my choice is prize 3.

  35. Oh I love the balloons, I am due to have my first baby a little boy in 4 months and I am starting to nest… I have been looking for a theme for his room and the balloons have sent my mind racing with possibilities, I had success with your owl pattern and would love to try the balloon pattern… Congrats on your five year milestone.

  36. Congrats on the big occasion!

    Should I be ever so luck to win, I would very much like prize number one. I have been reading your blog for years and do very much love your creativity and execution of your creations. Can’t wait to see you in Brisbane!

  37. All the way from South Korea…
    Wow! Such a generous give away. Congrats on the blogiversary! Difficult to make a choice but I think my one year old would love the sausage dog!

  38. Congrats for the 5th anniversary!! & Thankyou for the giveaway! 😀

    hope i could win this giveaway *crossing finger*

  39. Congratulations on five years! That’s great!

    I would be so thrilled to have any of them – so I guess I’d have to say #1 or #5. I’ve been debating which pattern to try for my daughter, Lauren. I love them all, and especially the bunny. 🙂

  40. Oh wow… if it’s not to late to enter, I’d love the Canine Creations. I have a baby on the way (a week overdue already in fact) and when he or she starts toddling in a year or so from now, I bet s/he’d love to be pulling a sweet little sausage roller along.

    Congratulations on your milestone, I discovered your work at the Stitches and Craft show in Melbourne two or three years ago and I’ve checked in regularly with your blog ever since.

  41. Is it too late to enter? Pleaase pleeeese, I would love love love the Number 2. Because well, owls are my favorite!
    Such a warm giveaway, I hope I’ll give away one of my designs if I (ever) reach blogging for 5 years (lol)
    And, I am getting closer to my 2nd year, so prize # 2 would be appropriate?:)
    Much love from Turkey.

  42. Gefeliciteerd met je 5 jaar Blogiversary.

    Prize #4, because Polly the dog is going back to my sister after a weekend sleepover and my two daughters (2 and 0) will miss her very much. Perhaps the canine creatures can soften their hartache.

  43. I hope you keep blogging; I love seeing some of the nifty crafts you come up with! They’re all so adorable! Any prize would be awesome, but I really love the doggy in number 4.

  44. Prize 1 : The Schmaft Pattern Collection. I am due to give birth to my first child soon (EDD 12 November – eek) and will be off work from 12 October – I want to win this prize so that I can commence my crafty skills and create wonderful hand-made items for my baby-to-be while on my maternity leave !! 🙂

  45. I would LOVE to win the hot air balloons. I have just had my last child ( child number 3 ) and have bought a new house!! When we move in in 3 weeks I would love nothing more than to decorate his room with hot air balloons ( did I mention we’re sharing a room at my mother in laws )

  46. Would Love to win prize 1, I’m making toys for OCC shoe boxes this year and your toys would be loved by third world children.

  47. Ohhhhh! The pink up up and away kit!!!! I have started doing up my twin daughters bedroom and keep asking them if they’d like hot air balloons hanging from the roof. They would be SOOOO excited if I told them a prize was coming to the letterbox for them! Goodluck everybody! Congratulations and happy birthday!!

  48. Congratulations on 5 years! If I was lucky enough to win a prize I would choose the voucher…I already have a couple of your patterns…it would also provide me with the perfect excuse to attend a market!

  49. Congratulations on your Blogiversary! I love all of your patterns for their creativity, and adore the combination of gorgeous fabric that you use.

    As I have multiple favourite patterns, I’d love to win Prize 1, so then I can take my time to pick an ‘all time favourite’, and then give the other patterns to crafty friends and family to introduce them to your lovely patterns too!

  50. Would love to win any of the prizes but the ‘up and away’ would liven my little fellas room no end! Gorgeous craft to inspire us all, thank you…..

  51. Ooooh it would be the voucher. I’ve already purchased and made the hot air balloon mobile and would love to make more fab creations!

  52. Congratulations on reaching your 5 year anniversary, and what a giveaway to celebrate!!!!! My choice would be Prize 1 – soooooo many cool things I could do with those patterns – and the ones I already own would be shared with those I love (who also love crafty things)!!!!! Congrats again!

  53. Of course, I would love to win any of those prizes (even if I have now done quite a few of these ^^) but I would particularly enjoy the first one!!!
    Since I discovered your craft at the last Flinders Keepers in Melbourne, I have done owls, bunnies, doggies, and even tried my hand on a penguin. Everyone loved them so much that I quickly got overwhelmed with orders. However, they are still a special treat. Being expatriated (from France), I try to keep in touch as much as possible with friends and family back home, and your creations give me a great way to do so: I know make sock toys for everyone I love, keeping their sister socks for myself. This way, we are all linked over oceans and lands (over 17000km!) through these lovely cuties and their siblings. 🙂
    I love looking at the toys I kept for myself and imagining where their twins are!
    So thank you for this (MERCI!) and I would love to be able to make a millions more!
