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.

Additional policies and FAQs
ALL PATTERNS ARE IN US ENGLISH UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED
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 ( http://theitsybitsyspider.etsy.com ) 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.
