I started crocheting in 2010, after my mother brought home a beautiful pattern book filled with amigurumi designs. She had learned to crochet as a child, but had never used the skill since. We practiced together and I made my first plushie: a horribly weird-looking cat, haha! But I was hooked~
Proudly I showed my works to my grandmother, an avid yarn-lover who had been crocheting for more than 40 years! Her enthousiasm and tips, along with many guides, books and online videos, slowly improved my skills.
In 2015 I started designing my own full size plush animals for the first time: the tall animals series. You can recognise them by their absurdly long bodies and arms. I started my own pattern company called ‘Little Bear Crochets’ and started to sell and publish them. ^^
Designing is hard work (seriously! *massages wrists*), but it’s great fun and it makes me happy!
