I'm a mom, a wife, a writer, a crocheter, a kisser of boo-boos, and a lover of touchable, colorful art. My daughter, Little Miss, is one of the big reasons I got into amigurimi crochet. After making afghans (and just about everything else) for more than 15 years -- I fell in love with a baby girl and have been making dolls to delight her ever since. She is my muse and my inspiration.
My original amigurumi designs are 100% hand made with the same quality and attention to detail that I would want for my own daughter. And, each stitch I hook in each piece I make holds a story. You'll find some of the stories right in the item listings on my shop -- for instance, did you know that the tooth fairy turns stale gumdrops into colorful mice so people won't accidentally have dental emergencies?
But, it is my hope that my creations' best stories are yet to be unlocked by the people who eventually receive them.
I want to thank you for taking a few minutes to learn a little more about me and my work, and I hope you'll find something in my shop that starts a special story for you.
Best wishes, Karla (The Itsy Bitsy Spider)
It was a lazy fall afternoon that found my daughter ("Little Miss") and I at the playground. The leaves had just begun to turn and every once in a while, we heard the delightful "pop" of an acorn hitting the slide... Which, of course, gave me an idea: how much fun would it be to roll as many acorns as we could find down the slide?
It turned out to be nearly an hour full of fun, but there was one problem. Our hands weren't big enough to collect more than a couple dozen acorns at a time. So when I got home, I designed Little Miss her very own acorn pouch! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
