Giveaway for The Pretty in Plaid Glamour4You Crochet Pattern

The lovely Ann from Glamour4You has a new pattern out: The Pretty in Plaid Jacket… and she has given me a copy to give to you! That’s right, one lucky winner will receive the Pretty in Plaid Jacket pattern (not a finished piece)! There are 45 crochet pages helping Ann with her giveaway! There are many chances to win! Make sure you check out what to do here: Starr Creations


The Pretty in Plaid Jacket is a magnificent fashion statement that is a necessity for any wardrobe! This show-stopping jacket will turn heads!! The ability to use any colors will make every jacket a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art! Every part of this jacket is customizable: the length of the jacket; sleeves (make it sleeveless for a Vest!!), the option for a full Hood or a High Collar/Cowl, and even the application of a zipper or buttons!
Ann has added 2 videos to demonstrate how to do the Surface Crochet & how to add the zipper, along with a lot of pictures to help anyone complete this pattern.

My giveaway runs from July 28, 2014 to August 2, 2014.

Have fun and GOOD LUCK!!

Love Skulls? Crochet Skulls?

I love crocheting! It has become a great stress reliever as well as a great past time. I love to make items for friends and family, but I also love to test patterns for designers! One of my favorite designers is Ann at Glamour-4-You. She has so many wonderful designs and many incorporate skulls. I have had the pleasure of testing all of her skull patterns. The latest being her skull slippers for the whole family! Here are the ones I made for my 7 yo daughter and my 9month old son. They are adorable!!! You can find the pattern(s) on her website linked above.
