There isn’t much you can get these days for $2.99, in fact even a loaf of my favorite bread costs more than that! However, my lovely crafters, I am so happy to say that $2.99 gets you a whole lot of selection at my favorite craft pattern site: Leisure Arts. You can get whole pattern books for 2.99! Seriously, I kid you not! And the selection at that price range has me spoiled for choice.
Lets talk about the last three I picked up. The first one is called In All Caps and features six patterns from the awesome Crochet Dude. These are all patterns for your head including five hats and a beautiful cabled headband. In addition to being beautiful and simply unbeatable value they are all at an easy skill level, which was surprising since they look so stunning. I will be making all six of these projects for Christmas gifts and for me too, of course!
The second book I picked was called Beginners Guide to Crochet Stitches. This is a fantastic resource with 19 stitches that you can use to create your own designs! Plus, if you need some ideas they even have included five projects that use the stitches in the book. So for 2.99 you not only get 19 stitches but also 5 patterns! And they are nice patterns that include a wrap, rug, jacket, baby blanket and an afghan. That is a seriously fantastic value.
Lastly, you know I had to grab an all afghan book because my heart is so happy when I am working on an afghan. I picked Beautiful Afghans which has three really truly beautiful afghans. These look to be a bit more challenging than anything I have tried so far so I cannot wait to get started as I love a challenge. The images of the finished afghans show that these are the kind that get treasured and passed down.
As you can see $2.99 gets you a lot at Leisure Arts! I just know if your browse around you will be so impressed with the selection. You will finds patterns and pattern books for everything from crochet to quilting as well as cooking and various other crafts. I could spend hours browsing and daydreaming about my next project.
Make sure you also connect with Leisure Arts on Facebook and Twitter so that you never miss a special or new pattern! Also, if you sign up for their knitting or crochet newsletters, you get a free pattern on Fridays!
