I've always wanted to learn how to crochet and in about Spring of 2011, I finally had the time to crack open some books and start learning (In hindsight, Youtube might have been much easier). After a lot of practice making scarves, I began making plushes and have stuck mostly with that ever since (it's just so satisfying getting a toy after all that work
). I focus on making animated/fan art characters because I enjoy working on them. The majority of these are my own original patterns besides a couple with link references to the patterns.
Regarding patterns, I have a few posted up. Because I learned so much from patterns that many people generously shared online, I'm hoping to give back a little by sharing some too
I don't write all of them down though because I sometimes don't know how to describe what I'm doing when they get too complicated and I start winging things. I'm working on it though!
As for commissions, unfortunately, I don't do those. I don't really know how to set a price that would be fair for both parties and I just don't have the time! I will probably be much less productive for some time since I'm currently in dental school, but I'll be needing my study breaks
Thanks for the page visit
P.S. Please excuse my lack of photography skills!
