Crochet with character!

I create one-of-a-kind crochet works, hand-made just for you!

My name is Athena, and I have been crocheting for 16 years. When most people think of crochet, they imagine their grandmother’s afghans, potholders, and doilies, but the possibilities for crochet are limitless. Whether it’s dolls, baby blankets, clothing, or amigurumi animals, if it’s crocheted, I love making it!

Many of my custom pieces are inspired by favorite anime, TV, movie, or comic book characters. I enjoy figuring out how to turn 2D fan favorites into adorable dolls. Unlike the plastic dolls that roll out of a manufacturing machine in a corporate factory, every single one of my cuddly chibi and amigurumi dolls is hand-stitched with care. I love everything I make—the hardest part isn’t the crochet, it’s letting my creations go!

Do you have a hard-to-buy-for person in your life? Do you know someone who would appreciate a special surprise? Customized crochet items make great gifts!

I challenge you to challenge me! If you can dream it, I can craft it!

About

When crochet and geek fandoms collide!

I started my Etsy shop around 2006 with encouragement from a friend of mine in California, but never really put anything up because at the time I couldn’t figure out what kind of pieces I wanted to sell. I also didn’t know how to market something as specific as crochet items or myself in general; this is still an ongoing process. I also could not judge how to price something that took a lot of patience, hard work, and time to create. I would, on occasion, make items to sell for friends who requested it, gave my items as gifts, or for swaps on a craft site.

About a year and a half ago, I decided to update my Etsy and started taking some business classes locally with a friend to understand how to make a small business work. During that time, I was able to start putting up my Chibis and getting a few sales on Etsy and more from friends.

I am constantly getting ideas for my next Chibi and am always willing to take on a challenge.

Since I started, I have made friends along the way. Through those friends, I have now done 2 shows, the North Texas Comic Book Show and Dallas Comic Con 2014. I am still creating new characters but now I have a full cast of characters that have already been made and hope to continue.

Welcome to Athena's Muse! I have spent quality time with these items and will never post pictures of items that have not already been created. Each of these items are one of a kind and if made multiple times, will change slightly for each. You are welcome to ask for more pictures of the item. If you have any requests or questions, please feel free to contact me through a message and follow me on Twitter!

When I complete an item, I post it on my Twitter. Sometimes, I will post pictures of gifts I made for friends and family, if you would like something similar please let me know and I can make one for my shop!
