I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

    Awesome! I would love to see the giant donut pillow if you make one!!

  2. THANK YOU for this darling pattern! I have made 5 of them so far for my in home day care, and the kids love them! They look SO REAL! I love them so much, I'm contemplating the idea of possibly taking your "giant donut" pattern and tripling the yarn with a Q hook, and seeing if I can make a huge donut pillow??? Would be a unique/fun/happy Christmas gift for a tween!
