Who we are

Hi, I’m Karen and I make crochet toys and collectibles. I am self taught at designing but my mum taught to me to crochet – thanks mum!

I was retired from the civil service due to ill health, and decided to try my hand at selling some craft. I decided to get a puppy and called her Darcey, and guess what? I could only work while she slept! She’s 7 now and I can still only work while she sleeps!

I live in Sussex, opposite an ancient woodland, so if you follow me on social media you can look forward to lots of pretty woods pictures! I draw inspiration from my walk and the Japanese style of kawaii (meaning cute) and all my toys are made in the amigurumi style (going round and round!).

I test all children’s toy to EN171 safety standard, but everything I make uses all EN171 compliant components.

I take commissions for toys and have made lizards, dinosaurs, owls and eagles this year!

Please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss a made to order work or a commission x
