Big Hook Rag Crochet Review and Giveaway!


My bloggy friend Dedri Uys has just released a great book, Big Hook Rag Crochet (ISBN:978-1-4547-0925-1).  She's the super duper talented designer who created Sophie's Universe (amazing work of crochet, be sure to definitely check that out).  

Have you ever crocheted with fabric?  This book jumps right in with 25 fun projects that are both beautiful and unique.  There are 15 designers that wrote the lovely patterns in this book, so each has a nice variety of project styles and sizes, ranging from a large pet bed to a trendy necklace.  There's also a thorough techniques section which explains everything very well. 

Dedri herself designed the "Fun Fruit Pouffes" a fabulous green apple and a cheerful orange too...aren't they great?

The "Floor Cushion" caught my attention too, what a great accessory for the home and perfect for those cozy days at home.

I have a thing for tote bags, it seems I'm a collector of sorts (you can never have too many, right?), so I'm loving this "Simple Shopper" I love the bold colors and the fabulous handles too...practical and pretty!

Your laptop will be super cute in this laptop cover...shown in lovely lavender and secured with 2 buckles, This fun project explores the seed stitch and adds a delightful texture.

  1. I love the look of the floor cushion. My kids aren't allowed on the couch with food and this would make the floor a bit more comfortable during movies and popcorn nights.
