October Pattern Sale

Can you believe we're already half way through October! Have you picked out your kids costumes yet? I thought I did but I keep changing ideas. LOL! Well if you still need halloween themed patterns we have several. From the witch, scarecrow, pumpkins and more. Don't forget to stock up for christmas too! I've got some fun new Holiday patterns coming soon so be sure to set aside your change and be watching the page :) 

I've decided to run a pattern sale through the weekend. Starting today Thurs. Oct 18th - Sun Oct 21st at Midnight. Purchase a minimum of 3 or more patterns and get 45% off your entire purchase in my Ravelry instant pattern download shop. 

For those that prefer Etsy I have a listing of 3 for $10 (which is about the same deal just a few pennies more) You can purchase as many of those as you'd like. (I can't offer the 45% in there since I have items in there too!) If you have any questions just ask! 


Ps. Have you check out the Calleigh's Clips and Crochet Creations Crochet Addicts facebook group! We're having alot of fun in there! It's a great place to meet other crocheters, chat, ask about tips and help each other out with all kinds of questions! We'd love to have you!

October Design Contest - Think PInk!

We had a great success with the scarecrow design contest last month that I though it would be fun to do another on this month and maybe every month! I love seeing you put your own twist on my designs! There are sooo many possibilities! Instead of doing a Halloween theme, since most my items are considered costumes, I've decided on the theme "Think Pink" - In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. My sweet grandma is a survivor of breast cancer and it's a cause important to my heart and our family!

The rules are simple.

1. It has to be from one of my patterns. It can look just like my pattern or it can vary with your own creative ideas added. This can be from paid or even the free pattern posted here on the blog so this gives anyone a chance.

2. It has to be mostly shade of pink(s).

3. Email your Photo submission to me calleighclips @ att. net or you can post it to my facebook wall.
It doesn't have to be a professional image or even on a model. So don't feel like if you don't have professional image you wont win because it's mostly random draw.

4. I will make an album on facebook through out the month.

5. I will accept submissions from Oct 5th - Oct 31st. Winners will be chosen the week after.

This will not be a voting contest to give everyone an equal chance. I will pick a few at random, I will pick my favorite and my kids love to pick a couple favorites too. The more that enter the more random draws I'll pick!

If you have questions at any time just contact me! or leave comments below!

I can't wait to see your entries!! Have fun and be creative!

Sept Scarecrow Design Contest Winners

The Sept Design Contest had some fabulous entries. Our theme for the Month was using the scarecrow pattern. The only Rules were to purchase the pattern and put your own creative spin on it and take a picture. Will all the great entries is was hard to pick winners. So I just made some random categories and then pick several at random to give anyone a chance to win some new patterns!!

Great use of patches, flowers and hay!

3. Slightly Knotty

Winners please fb message me, or use the contact tab to email me!  You have 48 hrs to claim your 1 free crochet pattern of choice. 

Thanks so much to everyone that entered and if you don't have the pattern yet you should totally get it because it's been a new fan favorite this season! You can purchase it in any of my pattern shops but instant downloads are always best don't you think - Here is the link to the pattern in my Ravelry shop!
