About

Crocheting interesting bags is my life!

Hello!

My name is Svetlana, I am a granny (i.e. babushka) to a cute baby girl! Before I became a granny, crocheting from plarn was just my hobby and an occasional sale to friends and work colleagues. But since my granddaughter has been born, and I began to spend more time with her helping my daughter taking care of her, I had to stop working full-time and think of what can help me bring money to pay the bills?

Crocheting the plarn bags and storage baskets! It's what my daughter has advised me and we started! First we participated in some local Moldovan markets and yard sales, then we made the Facebook page www.facebook.com/frombabushka and Instagram www.instagram.com/frombabushkashop and now we are on Etsy!

I am very happy and proud that my hobby brings happiness not only to me, but to other people too! All my items are handmade by me, unique and since I recycle the plastic shopping bags or bin bags, it's good for the environment too! All my items come from a non-smoking home too! Plarn is very sturdy and washable and versatile - you can use the plarn bag for groceries, or for work, or beach, or even going out! The plarn storage baskets are like treasure boxes - you can put anything in and they don't crease and look stylish!

I like to say that we never stop learning and I always look for new ideas, new methods and stylish looks.

I would like to welcome you with all my heart to my Etsy shop! Enjoy browsing and shopping too!
