About CraftRabbits

Sales 42
On Etsy since 2010

A story of mostly fuzzy things.

CraftRabbits opened upon encouragement from friends that I sell my quality, hand-crocheted items. Since then, I have expanded into making one-of-a-kind literary and picturesque journals to inspire the writer's mind. I live and craft in a suburb of Dallas, Texas, USA. My work space for creating journals is usually at my craft desk. Since crochet is so portable, I work on that craft in a variety of inspirational settings.

I use yarns that are fun to work with and functional to wear or use in daily life. My journals are enveloped in books or magazine pictures that I find inspiring. I am always trying new things and love to share the results in the shop. Conversations about products are fun, and I try my best to provide exactly what you are looking for.

The soothing effect of yarn and hook, the adventure of complicated patterns, and the friendships formed over crochet are all what makes CraftRabbits delightful for me. I am inspired by Mabel and Leo to make cozy, warm, comfortable, fun crochet products. My own passion for (addiction to?) journaling has led to my creation of journals that hopefully inspire others to write out their thoughts and feelings, perpetuating the creative spirit.

I also find it very rewarding to craft for charity, such as making preemie baby hats and blankets for area hospitals and making winter items for the homeless or poor.

Thanks for visiting CraftRabbits - literary journals and all things crochet!

    I'm an adorable, brown, lion head rabbit that loves to explore. I like to be a sweetheart with humans, especially those that give me raisins and bananas. =:-]
