Amigurumi Crochet Patterns for Everyone

I started making my own toys at a young age, but laid my creativity aside for many years, satisfied to crochet more practical projects like sweaters and blankets. It wasn't until we adopted a beautiful baby girl that I rediscovered my love for creating and making toys.

I sampled many "how-to" books for amigurumi, but always found myself second-guessing the instructions. "Does CH1, DC x2 all happen in the same stitch?" Or, "was I really supposed to sew the arm THERE?" Using my masters in technical communication, I decided it was high time to start writing amigurumi instructions that were fool-proof. You'll discover that my patterns have plenty of step-by-step photos to go along with clearly written instructions -- and if that isn't enough, I am always happy to answer questions on the fly!

I hope that after trying a few of my designs, you enjoy amigurumi crochet as much as I do. Thanks you for stopping by to learn more about me!

    My daughter is the biggest reason I got into amigurimi crochet. After making just about everything else for more than 15 years, I fell in love with a baby girl and have been making dolls to delight her ever since. She is my muse and my inspiration.

I encourage *handmade artists* who purchase or download a free Itsy Bitsy Spider pattern to give or sell their finished work in any venue -- and I’m happy to provide advice on price points that have worked for me in my own Etsy shop. However, I do ask that you follow two simple rules:

1. Please give me credit for the pattern. For online sales, a link to my Etsy is perfect. If you are selling at a show-style venue or consignment/craft shop, please include “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” and the Etsy store link ( ) in your item tag.

2. Please do not re-sell my pattern. I have priced my patterns very inexpensively so that they are affordable purchases for most folks. I’m not making a ton of money on these things, but what I do earn is re-directed into new yarns and materials so I can keep coming up with new designs.

Please Note: Anyone interested in commercially mass-producing my designs must contact me to arrange terms before doing so.
