So who is behind La Fée Crochette?

I am French, born and raised in Paris and I now live in the UK.

My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was twelve during the summer holidays. Since then, I have always carried a pair of crochet hooks with me. I was always able to start a project but never finished one and that was before I discovered the Amigurumi trend 3 years ago.

So who is behind La Fée Crochette?

I am French, born and raised in Paris and I now live in the UK.

My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was twelve during the summer holidays. Since then, I have always carried a pair of crochet hooks with me. I was always able to start a project but never finished one and that was before I discovered the Amigurumi trend 3 years ago.

I started by making petite dolls for friends, then writing my own patterns which led to my online shop, La Fée Crochette. Consequently, I was contacted by a publisher and Crobots was born.

I have always enjoyed making things and I find that with Amigurumi I can really express my creativity and it is a fresh approach to crochet. It only takes odd bits of yarn and some stuffing, and there you go, in one afternoon you have created something special with lots of personality.

I also like working with paper, fabric, clay, buttons, sequins. I also recently started to work with felt and some mascot concepts were given to a publisher, which led to my second book, Felties.

When I'm not crocheting or hand sewing... I'm knitting!
