Papercutting_Peacock_v1.jpg
I love the enthusiasm for paper crafting shared in the comments for this giveaway! Reading each message has really been fun, and I think that everyone who goes through even just a handful of them will find the inspiration contagious. There can only be 10 winners (congratulations paperazza10, Hilde, Bethany, Sam, danierenae, Kristen, MafiosaGrrl, Pooja, Marlene Brady, and Eva) to recieve the paper prizes, but, due to the generosity of an amazing craftzine reader, I have a treat for everyone!
Maria Merlino, of Crochet Living, has transformed the peacock papercut into a fillet crochet pattern! Her work in crochet is creative and skillful, and she just happens to also be a member of the Guild of American Papercutters. Maria’s pattern is the perfect intersection of two distinct craft medias, and I love that she created the crossover. And I love even more that she has offered to share it with all of our readers! A PDF download of the pattern, with two graphs and detailed instructions, is available for everyone, with only the condition that it be used for personal, not commercial purposes. For more of Maria’s amazing crochet patterns, please visit her etsy and her blog. Cheers, and happy paper crafting!

    I’m assuming the other Kristen won?? Darn!

  2. Kristen says:

    I’m the Kristen who posted ‘Delightful!’… so I’m guessing that you’re the other Kristen (who posted ‘paper is great!’)?
    I haven’t received any notification about winning, so I thought you did!
    Sharing a name sure is making this confusing!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m so excited. And thank you to Maria Merlino for the extra bonus of the peacock crochet pattern! Oh my gosh, this is just so great! Thanks again!
