LuvKtSweetly made ceramics and crocheted animals.

Cincinnati, Ohio | 601 Sales

Announcement    Hi everyone. I hope your hearts are full and your minds are busy. We all play a part in making this a more just world for those we share the planet with.

If you enjoy cute sweet things, then you are in the right place. There are many ceramic and crocheted items available to bring joy to your life.

Most of the animals you see here have been crocheted with recycled yarns. They were once sweaters of various fashions, and now they're transformed into one of a kind creations.

I'm forever searching for new colors and textures of yarns in thrift & consignment stores. Some of the sweaters are so amazing and so ugly and it's neat to see them turn into these new little animals. I do believe in supporting local and small business, so i try to shop in specialty yarn shops when specific colors are needed for custom items.

All animals are crocheted and assembled by myself. I occasionally get help from family and dear friends to assist me with stuffing and sewing. My 95 year old grandma is an excellent unraveler, and I am lucky to have such help.

I crochet and assemble all animals in my home. I am a dog and cat mom, so if you are interested in purchasing an animal but have a pet allergy, please let me know and I can work from another site.

I would be happy to make animals for special people on special occasions. I look forward to unique and specific requests because it pushes me develop new ways of working and expands my inventory of ideas. I typically look at a variety of images of the animal requested and build a pattern from those views and proportions. Just email me to let me know specifics and give me 1-2 weeks for creation and delivery.

Thanks so much for visiting my site and taking an interest in my work.

best,

About LuvKt

On Etsy since 2007

Porcelain has become a good friend of mine. We have been working together well in my home studio.

I am so blessed to do what I do in my life.
My intentions are to bring some joy to the world through my artwork and uplift the everyday with my pieces.

I’ve been crocheting various animals with recycled yarn for over 15 years. I rarely follow a pattern. There was lots of trial an error along the way and I eventually figured out a method that worked.

I love working in clay. I enjoy teaching it and doing my own exploring in the medium. For a long time, I wanted to combine the two methods of working. A few years ago I stumbled upon a something that I liked that combined the characteristics of my crocheted work in a clay form. It was a little yarn bowl I made myself that I still have. That piece propelled me into the work I do now.

I am always working with my hands, crocheting, baking, sculpting or whatever. As much as i love to work with my hands i love to please people as well. I've found since crocheting these little animals and making the teacups, people are pretty happy. I love cute fuzzy and warm things. Bright colors, flowers, animals, Easter, summer fruits are all inspirations. Good times and good people are what keep me going.
