Sharp Crochet Hook Giveaway!!!!

I came across The Sharp Crochet Hook a few months ago and thought, WOW, that would be super handy.  I wonder if it really works.  Yes, I am a bit of a skeptic.   Jessica at the Sharp Crochet Hook had some gorgeous projects that she had finished using this little hook.  These are just a couple of the cute projects she had .......



I had yet to try to crochet through any type of fabric before.  So, might as well give it a shot, right?  I received the hook and a handy little idea book.

 
After, checking out Jessica's website and the idea book. I gathered my supplies

 
 and took to crocheting.  I like to mix and match my crafts.  Crochet, quilting, and sewing so I loved trying something new. 
 
 
 
The flower is crocheted into the fabric.  The hook did what it said it would.  It glided through the fabric with ease.  Well, I could just stop at accessorizing a pillow.  A little added bling to a kitchen towel was next.
 
 

The material for the kitchen towel was thicker, but it still went into it with no problems.

 
Another project I have always wanted to try, but thought it was way more difficult.  Next, off to some plain old blue napkins that might need a little crochet bling.
 
 So, I bet you would love to get your hands on one of those little hook right.  Well, it just so happens that Jessica at the Sharp Crochet Hook was generous enough to give one of my readers a hook of their very one. 

And she will ship it INTERNATIONALLY!
 
The details:
1. Just be a reader of my blog and tell me what you would try with this hook.
2.  For a Second Entry Follow Jessica at the Sharp Crochet Hook
3.  The giveaway will be open until  April 5th at Midnight.

  14. This is one of those "why didn't I think of it" gadgets! I've used a regular needle to puncture a few holes in the fabric, then followed it with my crochet hook. Spectacular giveaway!

  23. Amy,

    I just found your blog today through Sharp Crochet's facebook page. I'm really enjoying looking around, you're doing a great job! I absolutely love that tablerunner. If I won the sharp crochet hook I would make that first, then a cute edging on a fleece blanket, and then I would do an edging on the hem of some of my daughter's dresses. I would love to win!!!! Thanks for the giveaway.

  24. My volunteer group does service project quilts. One of the ladies like to crochet an edging onto them. I never knew how she could do them - but turns out she has a sharp hook! How I would love to try this for those dainty girly type service project quilts. !!

  25. I have crocheted towel toppers before. This hook would make it easier, but what I really want to try is crocheting an edging around fabric to make a baby blanket, and a table runner and edging on the bottom of hanging towels in the bathroom.

  26. Hi Amy, I have never tried this kind of crocheting before. Whatever I try first, it will be super simple. By the way, I like the red color that you used. My favorite.

  47. What a good idea - saw a blanket that used scrap fabric and crocheted them together after stitching a blanket stitch around each square. This will eliminate one step! Might finish then!!!LOL. My grandmothers did edging on all sorts of household items. I follow via email.

  48. I love to try it. I love to crochet!

  52. Thanks for the super duper giveaway! I would try to crochet the edges of the place mates and tea coasters and maybe the table tops. Bet they would look really pretty. Wishing you a great Sunday.

  56. Wow! I would use it to crochet around fleece for Project Linus. Right now I use that skip stitch balde to cut all teh slits before I start crocheting but this looks a lot better!
    Thanks for the chance to win one:)

  57. I'm already a follower and I would use the hook to crochet pillow case edgings after I make and embroider on them like vintage pillow cases. I like to give pillowcases as gifts.

    I'd also like to use it with my crazy quilting projects and on grandkid's clothes.

    I see the single crochet hook at Jessica's website is out of stock or I would go order one. I don't need any pattern books on edgings since I have a vintage collection of edging patterns or I'd order hook+pattern combo.

    Or maybe I'll win one!!!

  58. I'm convinced - I need one of these hooks! Thanks so much for linking up on Hookin On Hump Day!

  59. I would like to crochet trims on my granddaughter's clothes and my own fairy shirts!

  60. Hi, Amy, thanks for the chance to get my fingers wrapped around one of these nifty sharp crochet hooks. I can think of a few projects that I would like to try with these. I have always liked crochet edgings on pillowcases. In the past I have used a large needle to sew the yarn through the fabric but it is slow going and hard on the hands. A sharp crochet hook would be so much better. I also think I would like to make a baby quilt combining fabric and crochet with a ruffled crochet edging. Matching curtains. Pillow edgings. Crochet flowers on a bag. Sew many possibilities .... :-) Pat

  61. I am following Jessica now, too ... thanks, again ... :-) Pat

  65. I would love to have a Sharp Hook. I just found out that I will be a very proud great grandmother and have purchased a length of fleece and will be crocheting a pretty edging on it. This would make the project go so much faster. Thanks for the opportunity to win!
