I have been toying with the idea of a giveaway from my Artfire Studio for a while, but just could not make up my mind which item to give away. So, I decided to let you choose by giving away a $10 gift certificate to my studio.

Now, what could you choose with that gift certificate? How about a set of tawashi

Heart Tawashi

Or you could purchase a baseball or football themed beverage cozy….

Or perhaps you could pick something for a favorite girl’s favorite American Girl doll….

For the crocheter, I have many crochet patterns….

Since I plan to be completely finished with the alphabet, both capital and lower case by next weekend, I decided to set up a giveaway for those who would like to have the entire set of letter patterns. This project has been a labor of love for me, but I am also ready to move on to some of the many other pattern ideas that I have.

These letters are the perfect size for toddlers and preschoolers to play with, great for decoration on a wall or shelf in a nursery, awesome for a holiday themed word on the mantel, or anything else you might want to do. They are also a great way to use up those odd balls of leftover yarn from larger projects.

So, you may ask, how do I win this giveaway? For each of the items below, please put a comment below as this is where I will check entries to choose the winner. Please be sure that each comment below has an email address for contacting you if you are the winner. Here are the guidelines:

1. Post a comment below letting me know what your first project would be if you won the whole set of patterns. (1 entry)

2. Crochet one alphabet letter pattern. You may choose one of the three free ones on my blog if you like. Post a photo to my flickr group showing off your letter. (5 entries)

3. Tweet about this giveaway. (1 entry)

4. Publish a blog post about this giveaway. (1 entry)

5. Follow “lauraslefthook” on twitter. (1 entry)

Winner will be chosen randomly on May 31st. I will contact the winner by writing a blog post about the winner and contacting the winner through email. If I do not hear from the winner within three days of the email and post, I will draw for another winner. Winner will have choice of having letters “gifted” through Ravelry, emailed as separate pdf files, or the entire set sent as a zip file.

Since I was blessed with so many entries, my six year old daughter chose a number between 0 and 7 for the tens place and then a number between 0 and 9 for the ones place. She picked a 1 and a 6, so number 16 is our winner. I have emailed Susan Varney and am anxiously awaiting her response so I can mail her package on Monday.

This was a fun giveaway that gave me some good insight into favorite items in my shop. Thanks for the input. I hope to do another giveaway sometime soon.

I completed writing out, taking photos, and having others check out my Big Bad Wolf puppet pattern recently and am braving offering it for sale. Now for the fun part. To launch my pattern selling debut, I am going to give away the pattern to a blog reader this week.

Here is what you need to do:

1. Check out my shop, especially the puppets.
2. Post a comment here, with a suggestion for the next pattern I should offer or the next puppet I should create.
3. Make sure you include an easy way for me to contact you if you win.

On Friday, April 18th I will have one of my daughters draw a number from my Mad Hatter’s Hat to choose the lucky winner of the Big Bad Wolf pattern. I will then email you for confirmation of the email address to send the pdf of the pattern.

Good luck, and thanks in advance for giving me some suggestions….
