Hi, I’m Shirley.
My crafting interest started on 23 September 2009. It was when I discovered that I love to crochet. 😀 Since then, I’ve completed quite a few crochet projects. I can also sew but not very well. I grew up watching my mom sew so I know some basic techniques. I have a pretty basic sewing machine, the Brother BM 3600. I’ve also learnt to knit since then.
My favourite hobby is crochet! It is such a versatile craft. I can make toys, bags, clothes, jewellery and so much more with just crochet. I learnt how to crochet from youtube videos and a blog by Teresa Richardson (Learn to Crochet – Free Instructions and Patterns). If you new to crochet and want to learn, her blog and videos are a great place to start.
I also learnt to knit from reading a lot of knitting blogs and watching videos. Knitting is a lot more complex to me! But I’m glad I figured it out on my own.
These days I alternate between crochet and knot, depending on mood and inspiration. Keep crafting everyone! Be creative! Cheers!
