Megazord Batt giveaway!

"For when the baddies get really big." Liz Beck of Things Liz Makes sent in this lovely batt in December for a Giveaway! It's a Megazord batt and for those of you who are familiar with Power Rangers, this is like all the power ranger powers put together. In this case, putting all these fibers together to make this batt was a brilliant idea! I really like how the colors blend together.

Things Liz Makes has more beautiful fiber and color combinations in her shop! Her luxe samples did not make it in time to be included in the box, but I think they'll be a great fit for our "Lady's Boudoir" theme next month!
