About CUTEure Creations

Hi there,

Welcome to the official CUTEure Creations blog!  But first, if you're finding me for the first time, you may want to know a little about CUTEure Creations.

It started out as a fun little hobby.  I learned how to crochet (well, we'll use that term loosely.  I made a lot of pot-holders) when I was 9 years old.  My grandmother taught me.  I didn't do much with the art until I had my daughter, though. I wanted cute hats for her! None of the cheap fleece hats I found in the stores appealed to me at all, so I really cracked down and started learning fancier stitches and techniques so that I could create her some more unique hats and accessories for her.  Once I got started though, it was hard to stop! I just kept making hats and buying yarn.  That is when CUTEure Creations was started.  I needed an outlet to fund my hobby and keep me from putting down my hooks.


Pretty soon, I figured out which products people really wanted to buy and started getting orders from strangers (woohoo!) and from there, my little hobby shop really has taken off!  I can't believe it's now been two years of making products for amazing customers.  I just can't get over it!

Lately, I've been really getting into creating patterns for all of the products I sell.  I've found that other crocheters love making items from my patterns, and I love giving back by sharing my designs.  Since I've started this part of my business, I have gotten a lot of "I wish I knew how to crochet" comments, which has prompted this blog.  I hope to share tips, tricks, tutorials, and even free patterns here on this blog.  In addition, I'll post other DIY ideas, fun ideas for kids, and possibly even some information on my other love-green living!

So, check back soon,  maybe I'll be sharing something just for you!
