International Crochet Day Giveaway!

In honor of International Crochet Day Sunday September 12th, I will be doing my first blog giveaway!  How fun!  I have taken a few pictures of this roll-up style crochet hook case that I designed and made myself so that you can get a good look at it.  This is the prize for the giveaway.  It is made in cotton fabrics: off-white with black butterflies, and mauve.  The ribbon tie is sheer mauve.
Their is interfacing between the layers to give it added stiffness.  I bound the edges just like a quilt and sewed it all by machine.
There is a flap to cover the tops of the crochet hooks so that they won't fall out when the case is rolled up.  I used a decorative stitch around the edges of the flap.
The crochet hooks are not included with the case, but they are there for demonstration.  The pockets are of graduated sizes, and are made to fit standard aluminum and steel crochet hooks.  On the right of the hook pockets, there is a pocket for small notions.  I use mine for stitch markers.

So, how do you win this beautiful handmade case?  Purchase a pattern from me beginning at12:00am CDT Wed Sept 1st, and ending at 11:59pm CDT Sat. Sept 11th.  You can do so through my etsy store: http://aprilcreates.etsy.com/ or my ravelry pattern store http://ravelry.com/stores/april-creates-designs-by-april-garwood.  I know that I only have 2 available to purchase right now, and that doesn't give you a lot of options.  Sorry!  For each pattern purchased, you get one entry.  You can also get one entry by blogging about this giveaway on your own blog.  Please comment below with a link so that I can find it.

I'll draw a name and announce the winner on Monday Sept 13th.  Good luck to everyone!

Happy stitching!

April
