Mamachee Giveaway

A super fun giveaway Wednesday!
From one of my all time favorite designers...
Tara from Mamachee
I'm so excited to introduce you to Tara!
I've been a fan of Mamachee since... forever. ♥
Tara's shop is filled with inspiring designs. It's almost impossible to pick a favorite. There's something for everyone at Mamachee!
You will love getting to know Tara!
Here's a little piece of her story:
"My sweet Mama taught me to crochet a long time ago, but I didn't really start crocheting a whole lot until I had my first baby. I don't think I've put my hook down since my son was born 6 years ago.
I've designed over 100 patterns since 08 (I don't know how I did that) and still have my design book full of ideas, I just recently started another shop too called: I Like Big Hooks (on etsy and ravelry - I'm very excited about it!).
I get asked all the time, how I came up with the name Mamachee. Here is my story: I come from German heritage and my Mama liked to play German music. My favorite song was Mamatschi by Heinje (you can find this song on youtube). Mamatschi means Mama. I decided to spell it Mamachee, instead of Mamatschi for easy spelling.
What more could I have asked for? I am able to stay home with my kids (I've been blessed with four beautiful, mini people), share the craft that I love and help support my family.
Tara -
It's my belief that people who crochet, are the best of people!"
Today Tara is giving away...

How To Crochet A Sweet Little Bow

Sweet Little Bows inspired by Bianca Gerwien's Sweet Little Belts... ♥
  I first made these sweet little bows last October. Two little gals requested that I make them nerdy crochet bows to go with their Halloween costumes... I did my best but they turned out to be not so nerdy and seriously cute!
These bows work up quickly, are easy to make and little girls love them! Wanna give them a try?
Here's the how to...
You will need:
Worsted Weight Yarn
(Hobby Lobby I Love This Cotton for the sample.)
Size U.S. G/6 (4.25mm) Hook
Scissors & Tapestry Needle
Ribbon 5/8"
Sewing Machine
Clear Sewing Thread
Hot glue gun
Alligator Hair Clip 1 1/4"
Straight Pin
Step 1: Crochet the main piece for your Sweet Little Bow.

Starting out: Leaving a long end of yarn (about 30"), ch 25.
Row 1: Work 1 sc into the 2nd chain from hook. Continue working 1 sc into each chain stitch to end. (24 sc)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Work 1 sc into first sc from previous row. Continue working 1 sc into each sc to end. (24 sc)
Row 3-5: Repeat Row 2.
Fasten off leaving a long end of yarn (about 30").
Step 2: Cut a piece of ribbon about half an inch shorter than your finished crochet piece. Center the ribbon on top of your crochet piece leaving about a quarter of an inch of crochet fabic exposed on each end.
Step 3: Dab a dot of hot gule on one end of the crochet piece to attach the ribbon. Secure the other end of the ribbon with a straight pin, this will hold the ribbon in place for Step 4.
Step 4: Starting on the left or right hand side of the end with the hot glue run a seam across the edge of the ribbon to the other side.  Repeat this step on both sides. Cut threads.
Step 5: Hold the ends together. With one of the long ends whip stitch the edges together. Both of the long ends will end up on the same side.
Step 6: Center the seam at the center back of your bow.
Step 7: Squeeze the center of the bow and begin wrapping one long end of yarn around the center of the bow leaving about a 3" tail to tie off. Wrap the other long end around the center of the bow in the opposite direction leaving a long tail to tie off.
Step 8: Tie the two ends together and secure with a double knot.
Step 9:  Weave the two ends under the wrapped yarn on the back side of the bow.
Step 10: Slip the alligator clip under the wrapped yarn and secure the clip with a dot of hot glue.
That's it! 
I do hope a few of you give these a try. If you make them and post them PLEASE send me a link!

I'm linking up at Daisy Cottage Designs Off the Hook Link Party!
