Fresh Stitches: Review & Giveaway

Hey, ya'll! I'm so excited to be collaborating with Stacey from Fresh Stitches to GIVE AWAY a nice little selection of different sized safety eyes to two lucky winners! (See below for details.) But first, let's talk a little bit about Stacey's great website, Fresh Stitches, and the Ami Club. SAM_4894watermarked Fresh Stitches is really a wonderful website that's beautifully laid out and I love how bright and cheery it all looks. Stacey has a fabulous selection of eyes available! (Check out her page here.) What I like most about her eye shop is that everything is so unique! You can buy eyes here that you can't find (or that are extremely hard to find) anywhere else. In fact, when I made my extreme amigurumi sloth, without a second thought, I went right to Fresh Stitches because I knew she had 40mm eyes available. Storyland Amis, free crochet amigurumi pattern, extreme crocheted sloth Oh, and I just noticed she has winking eyes available here. how cute is that? I can only imagine how adorable that would look on an amigurumi! She also has heart shaped noses here, which you could use for SO many other things besides noses! Stacey also has a great selection of comic eyes and safety nose which I think are a wonderful alternative to embroidering a nose. And if you want to add a bit of sparkly personality to your crocheted critters, she has glitter eyes available here in different colors and sizes. She also sells adorable goodies to go along with your crochet, including cute tape measures and stitch markers! You could definitely spend a while looking over all the fabulous goodies for sale! But let's not forget patterns! Stacey has a huge selection of crochet patterns, both wearable, and amigurumi. My personal favorite is this stinkin' cute little robot here. robot1-1024x768 Stacey has also written several books, Crocheted Softies, Cuddly Crochet, and Modern Baby Crochet. Stacey as a person is so humble and sweet despite having such a successful business and being an amazing designer. So I'm very excited to be hosting this giveaway with her! Okay, it's almost time for the giveaway, but first, I must tell you about the Ami Club! Stacey has gotten together an amazing community of people by creating the Ami Club.
