Announcement   Thank you so much for visiting my store. I hope my little characters put a smile on your face. Joining Etsy has been a blast! My customers have been wonderful and have paid me the nicest compliments. It gives me the incentive to keep designing.
I design all my own patterns, some of which I research actual baby animal photos for inspiration. I strive to make each character have a sweet, innocent personality and sometimes do the faces over and over again until I achieve that. My patterns all have photos to help with the instructions and are usually emailed via PDF format the same day as ordered. I am starting to convert some of my patterns to instant download so that you may have them quicker.

**I have lots of loyal customers who have purchased many of my characters, so after ordering 10 patterns, I will send the next one free. Just send me an email requesting which one you would like when you order your 10th pattern.**

I DO ALLOW, HOWEVER THE SALE OF FINISHED ITEMS MADE FROM MY PATTERNS AT SMALL LOCAL STORES OR CRAFT SHOWS - JUST NOT ONLINE

About

How My Little Shop Invented Itself

Way back in 2008 my sister told me about an online store called Etsy. We are both very crafty and so I thought I'd give it look see. At that point I had no intention of selling anything. I enjoyed looking at all the wonderful items people were creating but couldn't think of what I could sell.

I was an on and off again crocheter since I taught myself at the age of 11 and I had recently been told about amigurumi style crochet, which is crocheting by going around and around instead of back and forth and I loved it. I looked up a free pattern online and made my first little snowman using that style of crochet.

In 2009 my sister, a friend and I decided to join a craft show at church, so I created about 6 different characters using my new form of crochet. I made about 8 of each. I also made some purses. I did very well at the show and decided to try to sell whatever I had left over on Etsy. It worked. But I realized it took so long to make each item, buy shipping boxes, drive to the post office, etc. It wasn't worth my time.

I had written down each step I took to create each pattern and then I
it dawned upon me. Why not type up all my instructions nicely and sell the pattern only? Bam!!!!! It took off better than I ever expected. I now have 139 patterns and counting. My shop is doing very well and I am having so much fun.

PS: Had I know I would end up with a successful store, I would have chosen a cute name for my store when I first joined in 2008. Oh well. LOL

Welcome to my store.
I've been with Etsy since Sept. 2008 and I have been having a blast. It has been such a rewarding experience both designing and creating my little characters and knowing that people all over the world are enjoying something that I created.

My customers have been unbelieveably sweet and kind with their feedbacks and I really appreciate how many loyal customers I have. It give me more incentive to keep on making new characters.

I strive toward designing characters that look nothing like what I have seen on Etsy and sometimes I use photos of real animals for inspiration and to help me get a little touch of realism in my work. Then there are those characters that are a little "out there" like my Frankie Stine and my Buggy Sam.

Thank you for visiting my shop!

Additional policies and FAQs
I will send a free pattern for every 10 patterns that customers purchase. I try and keep track of all my customers orders so that I am aware of when they approach their 10th pattern.

I don't mind if my customers make my characters to sell at craft shows or to their friends or put in small craft stores, but making and selling my characters on Etsy or other online store, would be competing with my sales as I sometimes sell my finished samples on Etsy. I plan on selling in other places online also in the near future, so I kindly ask that my customers not sell my finished characters on Etsy. Thank you for understanding. Barbara
