Meet @stitching_me_softly, a crochet and accessory designer based in Bristol, UK. "I started crocheting 8 years ago and began by making things for my kids. I like to design things that are functional whilst being straightforward to make. I love nothing more than sharing my passion for crochet and crafting with other people" We love Emma's gorgeous pictures and designs, and her fabulous colour choices!
Take a look at the fabulous @gwenstellamade! Gwen says she enjoys sewing and knitting her unique vintage-style wardrobe. Her fuel for her creativity are Earl Grey tea and homebaked treats (we thoroughly approve of those here at LoveCrafts HQ!)
We just love @steviebythesea "I am a 28 year old crochet addict with a crochet clothing obsession and just recently I've started to experiment with designing my own items which is proving to be exciting! The most important thing for me though, is how wonderful crochet has been for my mental health- ever since I picked up crochet, my mental health has improved drastically which makes me forever grateful for crochet!" We know that lots of you will agree with Stevie - craft can really help your mental health!
Take a look at @spunky_yarn_master's grid! She says, "I originally started out with friendship bracelets, and after a year or so stumbled up on tunisian crochet. And only after learning the basics of tunisian crochet, I found my true love in classic crochet. That was about 7 or 7 years ago and it has been my passion ever since. The funny thing, both my late grandmas were amazing crocheters but I didn't learn it from them, picked it up all on my own. But I like to think it actually has something to do with my grans' skillz, I like to say it's in my blood hehe.:) "
Meet @thecrochetedcabin, who loves Paintbox Yarns. "I have only been crocheting for 18 months but absolutely love it! My favourite yarn is Paintbox, Cotton, Aran, Chunky, the whole range!" If you love granny squares, take a look at Dee's fabulous pics - you'll be inspired by her colour choices!
Calling all knitters - just take a look at this cuteness! @knittygrittyuk has been knitting ever since her mum taught her when she was very little. She is a self proclaimed knit-a-holic! "I particularly have a soft spot for any baby/toddler designs which I like to do for our little girl. Aubrey."
Jess has always had a huge love of art and crafts, and crochet ended up being the hobby that brought the most inspiration. "I adore using tassels and fringes, and stitches with an interesting texture. My favourite things to make are blankets, and little things for my daughters to use and play with" - we just love her colour choices - be sure to go and follow her at @rocketgirlcrochet!
Grace is the maker behind @forthefrills- a craft blog featuring free crochet patterns and video tutorials! She loves to create modern, capsule garments with a feminine flair - and you'll notice some very gorgeous embroidery on her grid too!
Chloe from @belleandbutter taught herself to crochet after she finished uni and had too much spare time on her hands. "Several years later, and crochet has become my way to wind down- I now can't go anywhere without a ball of yarn and a crochet hook!" We love Chloe's sweet amigurumi animals - just look at Dominic the Dinosaur!
Meet Molly Mae from @ponderandply, and knitting really is her happy space! "I started knitting around 8 years ago and now you will not find me without my needles in hand. I also started designing this year and feel it has allowed me to satisfy my creative side." You'll love Molly Mae's figure hugging makes - we're dreaming about knitting our own Veronica sweaters!
