About Me

Hi! I’m Fay and I’m a crochet artist, designer and blogger from New Zealand.

I started my crochet journey back in 2012 and ultimately fell in love with the Japanese art of making stuffed toys (amigurumi). As a busy mum to a 14yr old boy, I find them to be a quick and easy way to satisfy my crochet needs. And cute. Did I mention how much I love all things cute? I do. A lot.

I’m crafty by nature and have dabbled in a few different crafts over the years – scrapbooking, cross stitch, sewing, jewellery making – but crochet is the one that has stuck with me the longest. I’m also a qualified proofreader and enjoy doing some pattern testing from time to time.

As far as my patterns go, I try to keep my designs as simple as possible without sacrificing form or function so if sometimes it seems like I’m adding extra steps it’s all for the purpose of creating a nice clean end product.

Aside from my love of crochet, I also enjoy reading, watching anime, horror movies and playing video games.
