About thewoobles

Sales 1,120
On Etsy since 2018

Welcome to the wonderful world of the Woobles!

What makes a Wooble? Big bellies, stumpy legs, and one continuous head, neck, and body. (Let it be known that Woobles are not ones to look at their feet.)

The world of the Woobles is constantly expanding, so stay tuned for more friends in new habitats!

HOW IT ALL STARTED
I started crocheting in 2015, after visiting a friend’s childhood home. His mom had crocheted seemingly everything – blankets, baskets, little jar cozies, ... What was this magical craft that could make anything from bath rugs to rock doilies? And what is the purpose of rock doilies? I had to learn.

A few months later, I crocheted my first stuffed animal as a thank you gift for a friend. Along the way, I discovered that even a mere photo of the toy, lumpy and misshapen as all first toys are, would light up people’s eyes. I knew then that I wanted to spark that delight with my very own patterns.

Frequently asked questions
Are your kits suitable for complete crochet beginners?

Yes! In fact, I designed them for complete crochet beginners, to spread the love of the craft. Here's some beginner-friendly things included:

- EVERYTHING YOU NEED to complete 1 stuffed toy

- INSTRUCTIONS that start from the very basics of terminology and how to read a pattern. Plus photos and diagrams galore.

- QUICK START VIDEO that shows you everything starting from how to hold a hook and yarn, to getting through your first few stitches in the kit

- PRE-STARTED CROCHET PIECE, so you can jump right into practicing the main techniques

- PHOTO TUTORIALS available on thewoobles.com (video tutorials coming soon)

- MY PERSONAL SUPPORT If you have any questions, just reach out to hello@thewoobles.com

Are your kits suitable for kids?

It's the answer we all dread – it depends. Some factors that affect how easily a child can learn how to crochet are: how much they dabble in arts and crafts already, how much hand eye coordination they have, and how well they can learn physical skills from either video or photo + written content. Kids as young as 8 have successfully made toys with my kits!

Which kit is the best one to start with?

The penguin is quite the popular Weeble, but really all of them are good for beginners. If you'd like to learn how to crochet flat things (like scarves and blankets), then I'd recommend any of the pea kits. If you're quite content learning how to crochet anything in the round (like stuffed toys, hats, and baskets), any of the kits will do!

Do your kits come with hooks?

Yep, for an additional charge. Please remember to select the "Hook" option when you checkout.

How soon do your kits ship?

If you place an order before 10pm ET, it'll be on its way to you by the next day. All kits are shipped through USPS First Class Mail. For most places within the continental US, you can expect to receive it anywhere between 3-5 business days. I'm currently shipping out of NC.

Can I sell toys made from your patterns?

Yep, as long as you make them yourself, and give credit for the pattern to The Woobles.

Why do you ask for handedness?

Your dominant hand affects which direction you'll crochet in. And since all kits come pre-started for you, I need to make sure that the first round is correctly set up for you.
