In december 2013 I came accross a crochet package in a local store. The package contained a pattern to make a cat, wool, filling and felt for the back of the cuddly toy. I decided to buy it. When I was a little girl, we learned how to crochet and to knit in school. I was a disaster at knitting (I always dropped stitches…), but I was quite good at crochet work. The idea of being able to make something for my daughter, who was 3 at that time, appelaed to me. At first I couldn’t even figure out how to start. Lucky, my mum was able to refresh the basics for me. So I started working…
And this is how my first creation turned out to be. Not exactly a masterpiece 🙂 But I didn’t give up on it, and I got better.
After a while I started blogging about my creations. After crochet, I discovered I also love making items on my sewing machine and more recently I discovered needle punching. Learning how to knit is also on my plan for this winter!
The idea of having a little online shop to sell some of my work began to grow. Not to make money out of it (handmade items cost so much time, you can never make a living out of this!), but just for the fun of being able to make somebody else happy with a creation I made. I decided to start selling my items for a good cause. On the page about Cat shelter Waasland you can read more about this, and why I’ve chosen them…
Have fun browsing around!
