Made by Ava - stitched with love

Hi my name is Sam and I live in the North East of England with my husband and my cat Snowy.

In 2012 I launched my business Ava Kitsch Jewellery and Gifts. I love making jewellery and that is how I stumbled across crochet. I started with a 4mm hook and a ball of Patons Fab DK spray paint wool from my local yarn shop. I started with a pattern for a single flower which I turned into a brooch and from there I was hooked. In my spare time I love to sit down and crochet, I find it very relaxing, I'm not great at sitting still, so crochet keeps my hands busy.

I usually crochet on an evening while I am watching TV, my favourite genre is Sci-Fi and fantasy, I'm a huge Firefly fan. While watching Outlander (a hook and a ball of wool in my hand) I was inspired by the amazing costumes, all of these amazing woollen cowls, shawls and sleeves.By the end of the episode I had already started writing my first pattern for the Outlander arm warmer. From this evening of TV and crochet Made by Ava was born.

I have started to design my own Made by Ava range of patterns. My favourite wools to crochet with are DK and Aran. When designing my Outlander arm warmer pattern I wanted to be able to make a pair of arm warmers from a single ball of Stylecraft DK wool, an easy affordable make that looks beautiful.

Welcome to Made by Ava and I hope you enjoy shopping with me.
