Thank you for visiting my shop

I love to create!
I wrote my crochet mannequins because I like to create items that will last for generations and mean something in the future. Yes, we all can buy the affordable mass produced items, but I like to create items and my patterns are for those that share a similar philosophy. Recently I started to make little dolls and peg type mannequins and decided to also share those patterns as well. I'm not a refined artist, as one can clearly see, but that's not going to hold me back from creating items that I love nor should it hold anyone back. Do what you love!

I will be listing my original crochet patterns, along with crocheted items; specializing in folk artsy and whimsical baby mannequins and dolls.

Occasionally I list some vintage items such as dolls.

Thank you for visiting my shop. I ship from Silverdale WA.

    Etsy is a wonderful outlet for my pent up creativity. I absolutely love to design patterns and enjoy coming up with new iterations on my patterns. I hope to continue designing crochet patterns and adding more to my Etsy shop in the near future.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Although I'm not taking custom orders right now, I do list my original designs and creations periodically.

Please frequently check my shop for new listings. I list my whimsical fairy mannequins less frequently since they take many hours to create.

Can I sell the completed items on Etsy or another website?

Of course! But if you wouldn't mind giving me design credit in your listing, that would be a lovely acknowledgment.

Will my mannequin head and/or dress form turn out just like the one pictured in your listing?

I sure hope so! However, each persons skill level, creation process, quality and type of materials used, and other factors will likely yield variances in results.

In my patterns I specify the suggested materials to be used in order to achieve the expected results. However, as I mentioned, each person brings their own unique qualities to a completed project. In addition, the stuffing process takes time and finesse and you should view the stuffing process as a molding, forming process that will make or break your final creation result.

Please send me a convo if you have a question or need clarity on part of crochet pattern instruction. Although I have a 'real' job aside from Etsy, I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.

Leaving feedback

If you are struggling with a pattern and not having successful results in creating your mannequin head or dress form, then don't hesitate to contact me.

It's discouraging to have people leave feedback without discussing any possible solutions first. Like most artisans, I take my designs and patterns seriously and to heart. I want you to be successful to the best of your ability to create an item using my patterns.

I've purchased patterns before from other designers and always contact them to have my questions or concerns answered.

Feedback is appreciated and is always useful. In today's world of 'feedback' driven commerce, positive feedback is always a goal for me and many artisans who choose to sell on Etsy.

Thank you
