At the beginning of the year 2019, I took a Facebook poll to see if crocheters wanted a contest or giveaway this year. The winning poll vote was for a Crochet Large Amigurumi Contest. Some people asked if I could add some medium-sized crochet amigurumi, and I said yes.

Crochet Outstanding Amigurumi Contest Rules

Everyone had beautiful crochet submissions and it was very difficult picking the top 7!!! I do have surprise packages that I will mail to all of the other people that entered the contest!! Just contact me via my blog: Contact email for Helenmay Crochet and give me your mailing address. You can also personal message me on Facebook: Personal message only please on Facebook.  It is the contestant’s responsibility to contact me via my blog or Facebook in order to receive their prize. If I don’t hear back from any one of the contestants within 3 months then their prizes will become null and void. Thank you to everyone who participated in my Crochet Outstanding Amigurumi Contest for the year 2019 and congratulations to all of you!!!

1. This contest is only for people who have a USA or Canada mailing address. Void where prohibited. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. You must be at least 18 years of age to participate unless you have an email/letter from a parent/guardian giving permission to participate. The email/letter must include a phone number that I can call to confirm with the parent/guardian. I am not liable for anything related to this contest.

2. Helen Brady, aka Helenmay Crochet, will be picking 7 top winners on 1Sept19. If you participate in my contest, then you agree to my decision making for determining the winners. I will do my best to remain fair to the best of my ability. I will turn to my family, friends, and Facebook voters to help “a little” with my decision making, but crochet technical skill will be most important. Here is an idea of what I will be looking for in relation to the crochet technical skill: 1. Yarn choice 2. Photography/ Display of crochet work 3. How the finished crochet item appears. 4. Level of difficulty. 5. Size of the crochet item. 6. How many crochet items are completed. 7. Unique touches added to the crochet item or items. 8. If a parent/guardian allows their minor to participate in this contest, then I will consider their age as well. If I add any more items in my decision making, I will put it here: Last updated 2Sept19.  Scroll down to see the winners!!

What a day to shop for Marlene’s $100 prize winnings at Hobby Lobby!! I chose all of the yarn that I have used, or would love to use, from Hobby Lobby! So much fun picking yarn for Marlene!!

20190904_153615.jpg

I have used “Ice Cream” yarn before for baby blankets, and I love it!! I chose enough yarn for a pink and a blue baby blanket with a white border for each. The white yarn that I chose for her has a sparkle to it and is absolutely gorgeous!! I have tons of crochet baby blanket patterns to choose from: Crochet Baby Blankets

20190904_153621.jpg

Some of you may recognize the Yarn Bee Tender Touch yarn, this is the same yarn that I used for my “small” Siberian Husky Dogs: Crochet Siberian Husky Dog

this yarn would be good for crochet hats and/or scarves too!

I thought that the gorgeous blue yarn would be great for a shawl/poncho! My crochet super fine merino Butterfly Wings of Love Shawl would be perfect for this yarn!!

My favorite cotton yarn is “I Love This Cotton!” yarn. So, I had to include some in Marlene’s package. I chose the cotton yarn with sparkles!

You may recognize the “I Love This Yarn” Pinky toes colored yarn that I used for my Crochet Large Amigurumi Alpaca!  I also included the fur colored yarn in “almond” and “soft pink” colors!

When I saw the Yarn Bee “Sugarwheel cotton sparkles,” I had to grab one for myself too…tee hee…I had fun crochet slipper socks in mind when I chose these yarns for Marlene!

In honor of you sending it to me the first thing I will make with it is one of your patterns. I will use the blue safety eyes to make a siamese cat to look like my cat, Taz. My daughter suggested I make a ghost with the red eyes. 😊 The silver snowflakes will look good on some crocheted snowglobes I plan to make. I loved the tiny crochet bottle!! I will put it on a ribbon and hang it in my car. I will have a great time figuring out what to do with the fox buttons and the beads.
Along with the package, I got two other bonuses today. The Hobby Lobby gift card arrived and I got a notification for a $5 reward from Joann’s! So I am living high on the hog! 😄

Thank you so much! I appreciate your thoughtfulness in rewarding your followers and all the great effort you put into all your patterns! May God bless you!”
