When did you learn to crochet?
And how did that turn into designing your own patterns?
I was excited at the thought of creating and sharing patterns of things I loved making with others!
What is your favourite thing to make?
Which colours do you love working with?
I love working with pastels.
Where do you find your inspiration?
From everywhere! Current trends, the maker community, life.
Happy Earth Day, friends! 🌍 – As makers, there are lots of ways that we can be greener at home. One thing I like to do is make my own scrubbies, rather than buying disposable sponges or dish scrubbers. They are super quick to make and they hold up very well wash after wash! – You can find the super simple pattern for these scrubbies on my blog! (I also have a pattern for a heart version! ❤️) Link in profile! – What things do you do as a maker to keep things green? – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – #crochet #crocheting #crocheted #crochets #freecrochetpattern #earthday #earthday2019 #crochetscrubbies #spinayarncrochet

How many WIPs do you have?
Zero! (I try to stick to one project at a time and I’m currently in-between projects!)
Happy Monday, friends! There’s a new pattern on the blog today! – Easter is just days away but I had to squeeze in one last Easter project. Now all your adorbs crocheted bunnies can have some carrot pals. 😁 – 🥕🐰🥕🐰🥕🐰🥕🐰🥕 – These have been cracking me up all week as I’ve been working on them. The leafy stalks look like hair and are basically the most fun to style and play with. 😂 Swipe to see some of them with more relaxed stalks.👆🏻 Or check out the blog to see other “styles”! 😂 – Click the link in my bio for the free pattern! – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – #crochet #crocheting #crocheted #crochets #amigurumi #crochetcarrot #amigurumicarrot #easter #eastercrochet #carrot #springcrochet #freecrochetpattern #crochetlove #amigurumilove #crochetaddict #amigurumiaddict #spinayarncrochet
