Little Knitted Hen Gift Bags!

My Creation

These are the 20 Little Knitted Hens Gift Bags we put together for the big BHWT collection day, which was just over a week ago, and was the same day we got our four new hennies.

I thought the gift bags would be more eye catching and it seemed the ideal time to donate them as there would be lots of fellow ex caged hen enthusiasts there.

Every gift bag contained one of our four basic coloured Little Knitted Hen range, a Hen Hugger postcard, 2 of our LKH business cards to pass onto friends, and a leaflet I've created using photos of the knitted chickies to help give tips and advise for new rehomers.

All the bags were then tied off with matching blue ribbon which had a very thick, luxurious sheen to it. The ribbons were recycled off chocolate boxes and I bought recycled card for the postcards as well to be as eco friendly as possible.

I'll have to update this when I hear how many sold, hopefully they all went!

I hope they sell well. I have often thought about taking in some ex-battery hens but we have a border collie and he tends to chase everything, including humans!

Just got word back from Wendy who works at the BHWT. They managed to sell three of these on the day (so that's another £7.50 to save some hens!) and they're going to sell the rest on stalls next summer!
