My maternal grandmother taught me how to crochet granny squares when I was 19 years old. I took that lesson and taught myself other stitches and eventually started crocheting with thread, also. I'm not fond of making granny squares because they have to be sewn together but I will always have a soft place in my heart for them since that is my crochet foundation.
The first stuffed animal/toy storage net that I made was for my son, over 20 years ago. After he outgrew it, we stored that net for several years before handing it down to my nephew's three young sons and it now hangs in the corner of one of their rooms.
I'd love to crochet a family heirloom for your family!
