Easter Crochet-a-long: are you in?

As if you really needed another excuse to crochet more adorable stuffed animals… I’m giving you one! It’s time to kick off the FreshStitches Easter/Spring Crochet-a-Long… and there are prizes!

How does it work?

It’s easy!

Just crochet an adorable spring-themed FreshStitches pattern and share it before April 8th, and you’ll be entered to win one of 3 great prizes!

What are the ways to share?

Share any way you’d like! You can either:

  • Post the photo to our Facebook Wall
  • Tweet a photo (and be sure to include the hashtag #EasterCAL so I can find it!)
  • Email your photo to me: stacey (att) freshstitches.com

You can share on all of the mediums, but there is only one entry per crocheted creation. You can, however, crochet as many cuties as you want for multiple entries!

What are some pattern suggestions?

There are quite a few spring-themed cuties at FreshStitches. Here are some of my faves:

Russ, the chick in an egg Is it a chick or an egg? He’s both! This cutie turns inside-out to surprise and delight!

Easter Eggs These guys are a free download… so why not crochet up a few?

Bunny or a chick? I got caught up in the Easter spirit and couldn’t help but design some new cuties… it’s the same pattern for either a bunny or a chick! Pattern to be released later this week… stay tuned for a great deal!

Of course, feel free to get creative! Crochet up any of our patterns with your own springtime twist!

What are the prizes?

There are some exciting ones! Photos will be judged by a unbiased third party (aka. my hubby) for: cuteness, originality, springy-ness and photography.

And, I have to give a big shout-out to Michelle from Suncatchers Eyes, who is such a fan of crocheted cuties that she’s donated an incredibly generous $20 gift certificate to one of our winners!

I use Suncatchers Eyes in all of my animals, and I recommend checking out her awesome hand-painted collection. Someone is going to be a very lucky winner!

What are you waiting for?

The contest is open to international entries as well, so there’s no excuse not to join in!

I can’t wait to see all the springtime cuties you crochet!
