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)
My favorite Halloween treat has to be the sugary-goodness that we all know as candy corns. Each year, for some unknown reason, I am compelled to eat so much of the stuff in one sitting that I become sick and don't want to look at another candy corn for at least another year.
Well, this year I have a plan. Instead of eating the candy corns, I'm just going to love them... kawaii amigurumi style. So, whadda you say? Care to join me for a little candy corn party?
(Pattern includes both candy corn sizes)
