I’m a stay-at-home mom to a busy, happy, little two year old and a wife to a wonderful husband. I love being a mom, but I also have a passion for all design and art. I completed an architectural degree and worked for a couple years as an architectural technologist. When I became a mom I decided to stay at home and discovered my passion for crocheting.
Petit Ami, which is French for ‘little friend’, was inspired by my mother who is French. It is a sweet name for a little creation that often becomes a little ones cuddly little friend.
After teaching myself to crochet, I decided to tackle a pattern to make a little bunny for my daughter. I then made one for my niece which led to my sister-in-law ordering some for her friends! From there I began developing my own patterns and so my business began.
I enjoy creating something which brings so much joy to little ones. I also love the fact that I’m creating something with my own two hands, and love that each little creations ends up being unique.
Do you design yourself?
I started working from patterns which where created by some amazing designers. But most of my creations are now my own patterns or inspired by other patterns.
A lot of my inspiration comes from other crochet toy designers. I also get inspiration from customers who ask me to create something unique.
On average it can take about a day to complete one little creation.
(Ella : HOW ON EARTH , it takes me a week to crochet a flower, I’m jealous)
It is when I see the joy and delight on a customers face, and when I hear that my creation is loved and appreciated.
My goal is to grow my brand, continue creating new toys and expand my range.
