Thank you for stopping by. I’m delighted to be a part of Crochetville’s National Crochet Month blog tour celebration. It’s my first time participating and I’d like to thank Amy and Donna for all their hard work and energy in coordinating this fabulous event. Be sure to head over to Crochetville daily to read up on all the featured designers and giveaways too.
In honor of National Crochet Month and the blog tour, I have a few treats for you today…
First, I’m releasing a new crochet pattern today. The Garden Party Purse includes the use of metallic thread and beads in addition to crochet thread to challenge your skills, but don’t worry, I’ve included tutorials and photos to make it an easy challenge! This cute little purse is perfect when an evening bag is too dressy and a daytime bag is too casual. It would be completely at ease at an informal wedding, or other special event.
The pattern is on sale in my Ravelry shop for 50% OFF
through Sunday, March 22nd,
Coupon Code: NATCROMO
I designed the purse in #3 crochet thread and added two strands of metallic machine embroidery thread to the textured stripe and rows of beads for a little color and sparkle. Speaking of color and sparkle, the custom made beaded handles are the final touch that give this purse the polished look that makes it so special.
The pattern also includes a photo tutorial for a custom lining with an interior pocket too.
Second, I’ve released a photo tutorial with step by step instructions for the beaded handles.
But wait, there’s more!
Finally, I have an exciting OttLite giveaway for you!
Recently I received the 24w Craft Plus Floor Lamp to use and review. This is a fabulous craft light that has become indispensable to me for crocheting or sewing and I’m delighted to be giving one away to one lucky reader!
