Oakland Baby Booties - Giveaway + Crochet Pattern


If you follow me on Instagram you may have recently noticed a photo where I had just finished reading "The Light Between Oceans". Although the book opened up the waterworks many a time, I loved it so much that the cover of the book inspired the theme and colours of this darling pair of baby booties.
So many of you requested a pattern for these cuties, which is why I decided that I had to write it down and add the pattern for these whimsical Oakland Baby Booties to my Etsy and Craftsy shops!

One pair of tiny booties is just never enough (in my unbiased opinion), so be sure to check out my patterns for a set of darling Little Lady Baby Booties and quirky Urban Baby Booties.

The Ultimate Crocheter's Giveaway (Win $250 in Prizes)


Pinterest is my favourite social media platform as it's stuffed to the brim with creative crochet and knitting patterns! 
Over the years I've loved discovering such a variety of different projects and designers through Pinterest, and then being able to connect and work with them.

Recently, I surpassed 75,000 followers on Pinterest (and 50,000 on Facebook!) and I  decided I had to put together a huge giveaway full of items that I absolutely love in an effort to say "Thank You" for all your wonderful support over the past few years...

Here is a look at all the amazing prizes that I've personally selected... Trust me,  it was hard as I wanted to make sure to put together a perfect little bundle of crochet goodies that I've enjoyed using during my own crochet journey... Hopefully you enjoy them too!






  • "We Are Knitters 15mm (P/19) Beechwood Crochet Hook" - Two months ago I worked with the amazing people at We Are Knitters to host a giveaway. During the process they gifted me the loveliest chunky crochet hook I had ever crocheted with! I've often found when working with larger hooks in the past, that it feels rather bulky and unnatural to work with... However, the same cannot be said about this lovely hook! Somehow, it became a creative extension of my hand, and I loved the fact that it was varnished so any wool just glided smoothly over the hook while I worked away.





If you'd like the chance to win all of these wonderful prizes (worth $250!), all you need to do is follow the prompts  in the Rafflecopter widget below and you'll be entered to win!
