I haven’t had a giveaway for a long time – and now I am having two at once!! There is a chance to win a paperback copy of my “Around the Year Quilt Book” featuring Rosie and Bear and also a chance to win a kit to make your very own Reindeer Head – using exactly the same fabrics as I used to make mine. Here’s what you have to do ……
To enter the giveaway for a paperback copy of my book …
Just pop over to my Facebook Page where you’ll see how to enter. If you can’t wait to get your hands on a copy, then it’s also available from Amazon and as a download from this site.
For a chance to win the Fabric Reindeer Kit – including everything you need to make your reindeer apart from toy stuffing……..
Just leave a comment below – and for fun – please tell me what you think his name should be. For both draws, the winner will be chosen by random selection and yes, I will post worldwide. Good luck everyone!!
I still have one Reindeer kit for sale on Etsy. And then there won’t be any more as I only had enough vintage fabric to put 3 kits together – and now it’s all gone. Sorry, now sold.
PPS A couple of people have asked about the pattern – it’s available to purchase as an individual pattern here, or as part of this month’s ezine here. Thanks so much for all your lovely comments – I am loving reading all your suggestions!
I love your reindeer and would love to win the kit. I think he should be called buttons ‘cos you have used buttons for his eyes and nose
Hugs Jackie x
I would make him with a red nose and call him Rudolph, Sr.
Your softies are so fun! I’d name him Mister Ren–that is Swedish for Mister Reindeer.
We have quite a few deers in Scotland and they are all called McTavish (by me!)
He is sooo fabulous for those of us with a thing for deer! I do believe he should be called Rupert MacBustle 🙂 Hugs and cheery smiles, Daisy x
I love your reindeer I think he should be called Hamish he looks Scottish x
What a lovely giveaway… I think he looks like a Herbert! Just because I like it 🙂 ha! Xx
I think this exquisite and handsomely regal reindeer should be named ‘Caribou’, which is a type of reindeer native to North America

Love your reindeer !Iwas only looking at one today at the knitting and stitching show in Dublin,made from decopatch,this is so much nicer.Ithink his name should be Dolphie
Hi. I would love to make my own reindeer. I’d have to name him “dasher” as he’s ever so dashingly handsome!!
He’s adorable, I think I’d like to name him Heath.
I would have to call him Blue for two reasons:
1. His main colour is blue
2. He knows there aren’t many like him, so he feels a bit lonely and blue 🙁
I think your reindeer is so cool and think Derek would be a good wholesome deer name.
Many thanks for the opportunity
Ciao, la tua renna è davvero deliziosa, io la chiamerei Mr. Blue.

He looks like a ‘Norbert’ to me. 🙂
I love the reindeer and so do my boys. He’s such a sweetie. We think he should be called Comet.
He is fantastic – and a wonderful take on the traditional stag’s head wall plaque. I would love to win this, it would be a wonderful decoration for my daughters room at uni and a great reminder of home.
I know we won’t all be lucky enough to win, but would you consider releasing the pattern for sale? I’m a McFarland and we have a family tartan, I would love to make one for my father and son. Traditional, modern and vintage all in one go – clever Helen x
he’s darling, thanks for the opportunity, I’d call him Frasier

Oh just fabulous… erm a name… let me see… toying with a few but its … Duffy

What a lovley thing to make, I am sure it will be really fun to sew. I think he should be called Prince, as his checked fabric reminds me of a royal tartan XX
He looks very handsome and smart. I think I would call him Smarty 🙂
He is lovely! And I would call him Randulph! 🙂 xx
He is so cute and I should be very happy to wish him a Merry Christmas on my wall!
What a wonderful idea, a perfect decoration. I think he looks like a George, no particular reason it’s just the name that sprang to mind.
Are you going to sell a pattern for making him?
I lived in Illinois (1979-81) and my kids loved Rudolph´s story. I would love to tell my grandchildren the same story, under this sweetie. The name would be Rudy.
Thanks for the opportunity, Sandra, in south Brazil
Misty blue is my choice of name.
What an original pattern, which is hard to come by, these days! I think he is absolutely wonderful! I think his name should be Cupid, as he is stealing the hearts of so many!

Love your reindeer! Can’t wait to start a new project I’ve downloaded from your site.
I’d love to win a reindeer kit to make one of my own. I’d call him Joe 🙂
Love the reindeer kit it is so cute and seasonal. I think his name should be Snowy. The colors just make me think of a beautiful winter morning.
So tactile and appealing – I would call him Mist
He’s so cute….perhaps ‘Beau’….
I would love to win one kit. I would call him Reny, like an small Reno.
I would so love to win the Reindeer pattern and would name him “Frazier” as that is a family name and he does have the tartan look about him. Also, I would like to put my name in the drawing for the stitching book, I don’t do Facebook, so wouldn’t have a chance that way. I do a lot of stitching and this would be great for my five youngest grandchildren. Thank you for the opportunity to win one of your generous items. Joyce
This is so cute. My oldest granddaughter is a big fan of reindeer. I would love to add this to her collection.
I think he should be named Tarquin, as he seems that kinda guy!

I would call him cariblue my grand daughters would really love to see him or a friend of his on my wall
What a cute reindeer. It would be a perfect decoration for the holidays. Thank you for the chance to win a kit.
I live on Cape Cod, but grew up in the forested North Shore of Boston, where we lived at the end of a dead-end street surrounded by 14 acres of woods. My family always used princess pine and other greenery to make our own Christmas wreaths, and we encountered deer and other forest animals daily.
Now I live in a seaside community, but at Christmas time I celebrate those childhood memories by decorating my tree as a snowy winter wonderland forest, with pine cones, acorns, and ornaments of squirrels, owls, and of course deer. Your delightful (but unharmed) deer would fit right in!
I love your blog and look forward to Bustle and Sew every month.
A big “wave” from New England,
So cute. I’d really like to make this.
Adorable reindeer. I would call him Lloyd, because my uncle has many of the “real” things hanging on his walls and this one is so much cuter!
So gorgeous. Thank you for sharing. I would call him Robbie after Robbie Burns as he seems to need a scottish name.
A kit would be nice but I’m thinking I’ll buy pattern since I have never won anything LOL. Call him Shocker since I would be shocked to win 😉
Thanks for the chance at winning this so cute kit and I would name this reindeer Raymond.
I think your reindeer name should be Rudy . I think he’s a boy
What about Rudy? He’s such a sweetie.
I would love to win a reindeer kit!
How about Rory??
H e is a beauty and very regal so deserves a kingly name. How about Rex the Reindeer.
Such a sweet reindeer , I think I would call him Plaid 🙂
I love the reindeer! I think I’d name him…Thomas. Thanks for all the fun patterns!
I loved this pattern from the time I set my eyes on it. Having several boys and a husband that hunts this is the PERFECT Christmas present for them.. I can honestly say that I was SOOOOOOOOO ecstatic when I found your blog and all your patterns.. I am always so anxious to see what you have come up with and you have given me the encouragement to try my hand at embroidery..
As for this handsome deer’s name My Boys and Husband believe his name should be ” Rutt “.. 🙂
Well, I would call “her” Misty. Thank you for the wonderful giveaways.
That is so cute. My children have real deer heads on their den walls, so this would look cute in the grands rooms who aren’t yet old enough to hunt. Thanks for the opportunity.
Probably a little late with this, but maybe one day you will make an entire deer?!? I was so excited when I saw this, but must admit a little greedy, 😉 and think it would be too cute to have it standing next to the sofa. Any chance there might be one in the offing? Thanks and love all your things, Anita!
Hi Helen, I just adore this guy! Thanks for a chance to win.
Love this reindeer. How about ‘Harvey’? Thanks for the giveaway.
” Riley, the Devon Reindeer …. Had a very handsome nose …. and if you ever saw it, you would even say it glowed …. All of the other Reindeer, used to laugh and call him names …. They never let poor Riley, join in any Reindeer games 🙁 …. Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say … Riley with your nose so bright, won’t you guide my sleigh tonight …. Then how the Reindeer loved him … and they shouted out with glee … Riley the Devon Reindeer …. You’ll go down in history!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! “
This is just darling! I would enjoy making this for my nieces as well as one for myself! Too cute!
Love the kit, really sweet reindeer 🙂 I think he looks like a Harold, not sure why.
So much fun!!!! Thank You!!! He looks like a Rascal to me!!!
That reindeer is so cute! Thank you for the chance to have him.
I wish I hadn’t read all the comments first — the two names I thought of were already used! Love Gilly and Blue, but a new one would be Tartan. He does look Scotch and would look so much better on the wall than the real thing. He’s wonderful!
ABSOLUTELY THE CUTEST REINDEER THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR THIS GREAT WEBSITE.
I would name her blue crystal….she looks like she emerged fromt the snowy lands of make believe.
I would love to make her.
He is gorgeous, so classy and modern but with a real vintage feel to him. My grandson thinks he is “cool” and says his name should be “Chalky” the reindeer. I am being nagged to make one, just need the time ……..
OH I would love to win the little kit for “Charles” The Reindeer, He is King of the Forest after all! Thank you Helen for this chance to maybe get “Charles” in the mail here in the USA!!
Hugs, Jan G.
I would make that reindeer and leave him up all year! I don’t care if I live on Oahu! 🙂
Oops, I left off his name…KahunaRudy
He is So sweet. My four year old has been naming things Patches lately…so I’m going with that.
I love this fabric reaindeer! My immediate thought of his name was Horace. Not sure why, but I like it. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win.
He’s so handsome. Prancer
This is the only deer head I want in my house. =) Don’t get me wrong, I will eat the meat, I just don’t want a real deer head looking at me all the time. I hope I can win him for a change.
With a red nose maybe Rudolph?
Can you name all of the other reindeer?
He is so cute with his beady button eyes. Would love to try and make him. We dont have reindeer here but he is so cute he would be popular. I think he should be called Dasher cos he is so dashing!!
Would love this in my living room!
I love him and would really enjoy making him! I think I would call him Patches because he’s made with different fabrics!
What a cute idea. Please enter me in this giveaway. He is adorable!
I think he is one of Santa’s reindeer – Dasher maybe?
He’s brilliant enough to inspire even me to have a go at making something – potentially a real family heirloom (would beat the loo roll fairy my mum still dutifully hangs on her tree thats over 30 years old now!) I think he looks like a Digby.
He is a handsome chap and does not give me the creepy feeling of seeing a dead creature used a decoration….how about Billy the blue-nosed reindeer?
So cute! I would name him Snowflake.
He’s so adorable! I love the colors! I would call him Mckinley, after Mt McKinley in Alaska. To honor the reindeer that still roam there. And Santa too of course 🙂
I would love the chance to make something so beautiful, and I would call him Roger 🙂
He’s a lovely chap and I think I’dcall him Sven as that’s the only Nordic name I can think of at the moment!!!
Would LOVE the pattern and fabrics for the reindeer – would put this on the wall on our cottage at the lake
Oh my goodness – myself and my two sons have fallen in love with Herbert – named by 4 year old Archer. We would love him to come and live with us 😉 x
love to make for my granson who is a hunter thanks for the chance to win
How generous of you, I love the book, however I am not on facebook, so I can’t enter that one, but the reindeer is just too cute, I can imagine him in all different colourways! xxBrenda
I think he should be called Cairngorm as in the Centre – The Cairngorm Reindeer Centre. The Cairngorm Reindeers belong to Britain’s only herd of reindeer found free ranging in the Cairngorm Mountains in Scotland.
My family visit virtually every year, it is educational and well worth the visit. My Granddaughter Macey just adores Reindeers and would love him to bits.
I love the reindeer! I will make it for my grandson who likes hunters. I think his name should be patches.
Cute!! Francois can live at our place on Francois Lake, BC (Canada).
Being as deer have been so popular in my Alberta backyard this fall and so curious, I would love to have him inside my home this Christmas. His name would be Dash.
I would call him Fergus the Fabulous Festive Reindeer. He is such a character and deserves to have such an honourable name.

This is so cute! My mom would love to make it for me 😉
What a cute reindeer. Would love to make the pattern for my great nephew who is a hunter. It would look great in his room. I think his name should be

Sandy T. in So. Cali

I have a one year old grandson whose mom and dad bow hunt. What a cute decoration for his room. Adorable!
oddly enough – I happened upon your site when actually looking for a pattern for a deer head to mount in my sewing room! My only change would be to add an eye patch – for no reason at all, other than it would look odd (and hilarious).
your reindeer should be named: “Eliot” … he seems like an Eliot.
He is very cute! I would love to win one :)! Blizzard or Rudie for a name!
My parents are from England and I enjoy your blog and your stories and pics of Ben. My son and husband hunt and we have the variety of antler mounts at our house – I think the reindeer would put my daughters and I in the running for “best shot.” 🙂
Enjoy your day.
I would call him Harris after my favourite jacket inherited from my grandad. He’s really cute x
I WOULD LOVE TO WIN THE REINDEER KIT….I T WOULD BE A CHERISHED PART OF OUR CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS….THE GRAND CHILDREN WOULD BE THRILLED TO SEE HIM….I THINK HIS NAME SHOULD BE “RASCAL”….CAROL

Hi Helen I just love the reindeer. I would have to name him “No Idea” before he got his eyes, then when he got his eyes it would be Handsome cause that what he is.

I’d just call him Artie!
He’s a real cutie
Since i live in Dubai, i’d have to give him a slightly Arabian name. Arise Sir Ghazal de Nordica! …Ghazal = deer. Nordic Deer? I actually don’t know the Arabic word for reindeer!
Ohh, great giveaway! He looks like a Harold to me!
He is so cute!! My husband is a youth pastor and has been looking for a mascot. He would be perfect and his name would probably be Jedidiah or Mr Reindeer.
LOVE that fabric reindeer! I think you should name her rosie
What a cutie! For a name… Markle.
My Deer, your Deer is wonderful! I’d just love that pattern and the supplies that go with it.
I would name him Blixem. The 1823 poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” (known today as The Night Before Christmas) calls Donner and Blitzen “Dunder and Blixem”. Blixem is much more flattering than Dunder, so we chose Blixem.
I think his name should be Bruce.
This is the perfect citch item for my home! It’s so cute
Stitches the button nose reindeer
I would call him (Proud)” Pontus,” that’s a swedisch boys name.

Buzz is light years ahead of all the other reindeer 🙂

I love, tanks for contest.
Simply Deary. That’s what my children would have picked, I can imagine. I do love him so…
Oh he is adorable. His name should be Rudy. So so cute.

He’s adorable. I like the name Norman.

My daughter is “into” reindeer and I’ve been looking for a good pattern. This is it! Thanks for the chance.
Congrats on another fabulous pattern, and project. I fell in love with him the minute I saw him. I would call him Dashing, as he cuts a very dashing figure, and I would love to see him dashing around with Father Christmas!
Thank you for generously sharing your wonderful creations.
He is adorable. Can I name him Mine? 🙂 or how about Clyde.
He is so great! I think he should be called Hugs:)
This is adorable (and cruelty-free! 8-)). I’d call him Twinkle, because he looks to have a cheeky twinkle in his eye! x
My husband is an avid hunter, I would LOVE to add your deer to our “game” room! My deer will be named Threads : )
he’s lovely. I’d call him Big John for no particular reason I guess. What a charmer he is though.
So sweet, I would call him frosty.
F.R.E.D. (fabric reindeer – extremely delightful)
Hi Helen, I am glad you liked “No idea” the follow up to that name is “Still no idea” because he has no legs!! I heard that joke years ago and it still makes me laugh.
How darling!! I like Randolph…I have no idea where that idea came from, maybe a take off on Rudolph…but he looks like Randolph – or Randy – the Deer! He’s sweet as can be! Thank you for your generosity! xx
Our dad used to infuriate us when we were little by singing a “Rudolph” parody called “Randolph the blue-nosed snow deer”. Our allegiance was with Rudolph and we would brook no mockery. Thanks for the memory.
He is absolutely precious and I think his name should be Art. I have no idea why!
I am sure I left a comment and checked but I cant now see it.
I have a name chosen and if I win I will let you know and I will be making this for for my son who has started his own heard of deer, but none as cute as this one. Fingers crossed.
That is one of the cutest things I have ever seen, definitely Dasher since he is so dashing.
I think he looks like an Edmund.
I just love the reindeer! I’m so happy that I found this blog last year.
I’m unsure of his name, maybe Rufus? He looks like a Rufus!
He’s so gorgeous. I think he should be called something like Sparkles. Thanks for the opportunity.
Since he is quite unconventionally coloured for a reindeer, he should have an unconventional, Australian name such as “Bonza”! He’d be really Bonza under our Christmas tree that’s usually decorated with a stack of reindeers & mooses rather than the usual stars & bells!
He is so cayoooote! My seven year old said to name him “Brownie” so there ya go:)
My girls would name him either Icicle or Froster
What a cute guy!
I think he looks like a “Westley”. Great design!
I really LOVE your reindeer!! My own version of it: http://howling-liz.blogspot.nl/2012/11/x-mas-reindeer.html
Thanks for sharing! Liz
I believe he should be called “Charles” I love him!!
Hi Helen,I just love Rudy Reindeer. He would make a lovely gift for my new Greatgrand baby.
Love the deer, We have actual deer in the yard every night, but not as cute as this one.
maggie from Maine
