About

Crafting addiction at it's finest.

Hi everyone, firstly thank you for taking the time to read my story.
I have taken a keen interest in crafts from the age of around 21 years old as I found myself with some free time more often than not and I started to browse local hobby stores and decided to buy myself a scrapbook. I really enjoyed expressing myself threw colour and texture so found myself trying out more and more crafts.
One day I visited an aquarium in London and in the gift shop was a crochet toy mermaid which I'm sure was factory made by the hundreds or even thousands. I really wanted to buy it but when I saw the price I realised I couldn't afford it. On that day I told myself I'd would learn to crochet so I could make myself that mermaid.
It actually took me a lot longer to master than all the other crafts I had tried out but I eventually did. Friends started asking me to make them toys for gifts so I did of course and eventually decided to CE test them and sell them using patterns I bought or found for free. As I got more confident I free styled designs easier with more understanding of the shape I would produce. I decided to rebrand my old shop in to Sweetpea & Clover with the intention of selling crochet dolls and bears based on nature, unfortunately crochet has taken a toll on my hands and now takes me longer to make the toys and I wanted to add more items. I particularly like working in pastel colours.
