I began designing crochet patterns five years ago this past November. I started out as a handmaker and I designed patterns here and there to sell in my shop. It didn’t take me long to realize that I was very much in love with the designing aspect.
One of my very first designs was the Tooth Fairy Pillow and I think I was more excited about these than anything I had made or designed before them!
