Amigurumi patterns you didn’t know you wanted

This is my story

As long as I can remember, I have been crazy about animals. I still have hundreds of stuffed animals in my bed; I am a lifelong member of WWF and travel the world to see the most exotic animals.

Before I started designing my Amigurumi creations, I searched the internet for crochet patterns of animals I like, but I often left disappointed. That is when I decided to take matters into my own hands and started to design my first crochet pattern, Julian the ring-tailed lemur. It was so much fun that I couldn’t just stop there. By now, my to-do list for making new designs never seems to become any shorter. My collection of amigurumi patterns grows steadily with the most exotic animals and animals close to home.

A few things about me: I am married, a mom of two, and I have an overexcited Labradoodle. Also, I am a lefty with everything except crocheting! My mother has taught me the art of crocheting. She helps me design patterns and is the best mother and grandma I could wish for. Oh, and if there ever is a competition for speed crocheting, she will definitely win!
