When I taught myself to crochet about 4 years ago, I became addicted to it! I bought pattern after pattern and just kept practicing all sorts of stitches. If there was a stitch I didn't understand, I'd look it up on You Tube and watch how to do it step by step.
My background is in fine arts and I have dabbled in all sorts of crafts for many years. I figured why not design my own patterns, so I did!
Since I had just had a baby I had a perfect little model for my hats and diaper covers. When my daughter got too big for the newborn creations, I started making a call out to moms with newborns. I offered free photography of their beautiful baby, in return to use the photos for selling and advertising. I've met some lovely mommies and their gorgeous babies.
This sunflower cocoon/baby bowl is one of my favorite designs and one I am very proud of! I have some fantastic testers who made sure that the pattern worked out well and everything fit together like it should.
Never in a million years would I have thought that I would be published in a magazine, let alone be on the front cover of this magazine! Thanks to a great online publication 'Inspired Crochet Magazine' I am now published.
So, I just want to say a great big THANK YOU to all my family, friends and fans. You have supported and encouraged me to keep on going with my craft. It is thanks to you all that I am where I am today.
