What others have made
I am serial crocheter and an enthusiastic amigurumi designer; my home is full of yarns and amigurumis… I learned to knit and crochet with my grandma when I was a little girl. I discovered the amigurumi world a couple of years ago: looking for hand-made and home-made personalized gifts for the babies of my friends. I bought a lot of books and tons of yarns, and crocheted different tribes of amigurumis. Later on, when I became myself mother, I began to create my own amigurumis. I am always amazed to see a ball of yarn turn into a soft stuffed animal brought to life by children’s imagination. My biggest sources of inspiration are my two daughters. They like so much to imagine new stories with their stuffed animals and often challenge me to create new ones.
