This sweet book is one I reviewed recently.  You can see that review here.

If you’d like to win a copy of this book, you can enter the Giveaway here and receive the book in time to work up a few of the goodies inside for your own holiday.

To enter, just post a link in the section below to your favorite online craft project that combines crochet with ANY other craft (except knitting).  There are plenty of great projects out there that combine crochet with knitting – but we need to reach farther afield than that.  I’m anxious to see what creative and interesting projects you’ll post for all of us to see and be inspired by.

Remember to include your zipcode along with the link to the project.  BTW, the project can be your original work.  Always happy to see that.  But, it won’t necessarily give you an ‘edge’.  As usual, I’ll be the sole determiner of the winner and I have my prejudices!

So get surfing and post some great projects.  One entry per person please.    This Giveaway is open from today through midnight CST, Friday, November 30, 2012.

    I love how crocheting around the edge of some sewn together flannel fabrics kicks the gift of a receiving blanket up a notch. And, I love how the use of a wing needle in this tutorial:
    creates evenly spaced holes in the fabric, making it easier to crochet a nice neat edge!

    (I realize that, as of this posting, that the top of the page says this giveaway is closed, but it’s a new blog post, and the contest is open until the end of the month, so I figured I’d take my chances)

    I think this is really cute, but simple: http://easymakesmehappy.blogspot.com/2011/09/crochet-edging-patterns.html

    Thanks for the chance!

    I just completed this crochet wreath — two things I really love to do: wreath making and crocheting! And just in time for Christmas, too! http://sewisme.wordpress.com/2012/11/18/do-it-yourself-crochet-a-christmas-wreath/
    Unfortunately, I have no zip code but I’ll leave my postal code (just in case this is open to Canadians after all!) — K1V 0S8

    I love this picture of pillowcases with crocheted edges – the colors make me feel happy. No directions on this site but crocheted edges on pillowcases, towels and blankets is remarkably easy and you go make them as simple or a fancy as you want. Enjoy

    Opps – forgot my zip 80919

    I have made these baby blankets in the past – they work up easily and are really cute

  9. Tina S on November 19, 2012 7:08 am

    This is such a fun project! Since it starts with a pillowcase the possibilities are endless. Thanks for the opportunity to win the book! I love the felt bags on the cover.

    I love crochet on the edges of fabric – felt for bags, linen for hankies, pillowcases, jeans for teens, etc. Like this:

    I adore this Home Sweet Home pillow project from Purl Bee. It combines crochet,cross stitch,and a bit of simple sewing. I’m just beginning to cross stitch and this seems like it would be a simple project for me to try. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I am a multi-crafter and making greeting cards is one of my crafts. I found this site that adds beautiful crochet flowers to cards to make them extra special! http://www.card-making-magic.com/crochetflowers.html I live in the 97306 zip code.

  13. Angela on November 19, 2012 12:02 pm

    I’m looking for new unique patterns to crochet – combining crafts sounds great!

  14. Carmen on November 19, 2012 12:43 pm

    Besides crocheting, I love making cards, so of course I was excited to see that I could combine those two loves! Here is one incredible example: http://onesheepishgirl.blogspot.com/2012/05/yarn-embellished-mothers-day-card.html

    I adore crochet trim on cute tea towels to vintage up my kitchen. When I saw this apron I knew I had to put it on my “must make” list! It’s so cute!

    Years ago in my Grandmother’s patterns I found crocheted collar patterns in thread. I changed some to yarn, made collars to fit sweatshirt necks, sewed them on with my sewing machine, some in same colors as the shirt & some in contrasting colors, really dressed up the shirts. Hadn’t thought about this in years. Your site brought it to mind. Thank you for the memories!

    JD, I don’t know if this giveaway is still active or not. You mentioned it still being open on one of the Yahoo groups, and it says at the end of the post that it will be open until the 30th, but at the top of the post it says it’s already closed. *shrugs* Here’s my entry, just in case it really is still open: http://beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com/2012/08/fusion-blanket-crochet-along.html is one of my favorite crossover patterns. My zip code is 32246. And thank you for all of the awesome giveaways!!

    A girl at work had an wrist pad that was so beat up and had a hole that we did something similar!

    I recently made some spiders by combining crocheted circles with styrofoam balls, fabric and wire. So far, this is my favorite use of crochet with other craft techniques. A picture is on my blog:

    Thanks for the giveaway. My favorite is the shell border in this Petals to Picots tutorial for adding crocheted edging to sewn or quilted blankets. My zip code is 10023.

    I like adding crochet to denim. I have not yet tried this, but it is on my list of items to complete soon. Here is a link via my pinterest to one such project. http://pinterest.com/pin/174021973073076062/

    http://www.crochetconcupiscence.com/2012/05/when-a-doily-is-not-just-a-doily/ This has great ideas to do something with Grandma’s old doilies by combining it with other craft techniques

  25. Kathy H on November 25, 2012 9:27 am

    Isn’t this tree just wonderful? My idea is to decorate the tree with buttons, bells, and a variety of found objects to make it spectacular!! http://www.michaels.com/Crochet-Christmas-Tree/h00062,default,pd.html Be especially blessed, Kathy

  26. hara on November 27, 2012 5:50 am

  27. Kimberly on November 28, 2012 8:16 am

    I love making felt flowers and I Just taught myself to crochet a year ago. Here’s a cute way to combine them both. You could vary the sizes and use them in all sorts of ways: bouquets, napkin rings, barrettes, headbands, as a pin.
