I've been crocheting since I was six years old and have been hand sewing almost as long. Most of my projects go to Doernbecher's Children's Hospital. I belong to a non-profit organization called Scrappbox Quilts were I'm the primary toy maker (lol) and secretary. I like a lot of different patterns, especially toys, and yarn (there's a good reason why my profile pic is a cat lol). I use mostly acrylic yarn because it tends to be softer for the kids, I don't know of anyone who's allergic to it, and it feels good running through my fingers as I work with it. I like cotton fabrics and especially fleece because they're both easy to work with and the fleece makes such soft toys. It doesn't absorb liquids easily either so it's easy to wash. I will admit though that I prefer crocheting because it's fast, easy, and so much fun for me to do. What I love more is knowing that someone else will get to enjoy my work as much, if not more, than I do...
