About

I learned how to crochet during the summer 2012 while pregnant with my second son. My objective was to learn how to make those adorable animal hats!

The idea to run my own little business made its way into my mind. La Capitaine Crochète debuted in February 2013 and a few months later in August, I opened my Etsy shop. That year, I made dozens of owl hats.

Over time, I added more classical hats to my collection as well as cute bear hoodies. My children were modeling and I continued to crochet more and more hats for children.

In 2014, I made a few nylon net scrubbies for my family and me and they were a huge success! A year later, I decided to bring a few of them to craft fairs and people were stopping and asking about them.

It is later in August 2016 that a friend's publication in a Facebook group has triggered everything. That day and the day after, I sold 31 scrubbies! Then word of mouth made its work! In April 2017, eight months later, I sold my thousandth scrubbie on Etsy.

Little by little, I added color choices; I have 24 now. Since January 2017, in addition to regular rond scrubbies, I added various shapes: hearts, cats, large round, giant round, stars, sushis, pineapple, watermelons, avocado, apples, carrot, pear and flowers.

I also offer exfoliating sponges. I am myself a bit sensitive, I hate to exfoliate. I offer a product that gently exfoliates with which soap lathers and that is washable and dries fast. The exfoliating sponge can be used every day!

I am so lucky to grow as a crafter and an entrepreneur. I am a stay at home mom with my three boys. My two elder boys have autism and even if a am a proud mom, it is not easy every day. The future is a source of concern for my family and I think I can affirm that it is a also a source of concern for every family with a child that has autism. This is why I am so proud to support Véro & Louis Foundation. The goal of this innovative project is to offer people with autism aged 21 and over a long-term residence, a healthy and loving home environment and qualified staff while ensuring peace of mind for parents (visit: fondationverolouis.com/en/).

Thank you with all my heart for supporting my small business, for your nice comments and encouragements. I hope to crochet for you with love a useful and colorful item.
