It was so difficult to choose this week's Crochet Finds because there were so many fabulous projects to choose from.

OttLite Giveaway at Pattern Paradise

Ottlite Giveaway by Pattern-Paradise

Recently I received the 24w Craft Plus Floor Lamp to use and review. I couldn't wait to use it so I unpacked it quickly and assembled it, which consisted of attaching the base to the lamp (easy as pie). I have recessed lighting throughout the house and have always been pretty happy with it for my crafting needs. I did not anticipate the huge difference the OttLite would make.

Make Your Own Beaded Purse Handles!

Beaded purse handle by Pattern-Paradise

I love crocheted bags and have made my fair share of totes and market bags with sturdy crocheted handles, and they are great for practical purposes. Sometimes, though, I want something a little more elegant and dressy, perhaps for evening wear or a special occasion. With today's endless selection of yarns and threads, you can really craft a beautiful and elegant accessory but the traditional crochet handle probably won't be what you are looking for. There is the clutch of course, but if you are Read more
