Sarah started Little Fox Crochet to bring in a little bit of extra income and provide her with a creative outlet during maternity leave with her third child, whom she calls her little fox. The shop opened last year and quickly grew to something even more amazing than she could have imagined. She did some custom work for awhile and was humbled that so many people reached out to work with her. Little Fox Crochet now sells only ready-to-shop crochet items, because this business model allows her to spend more quality time with her children, which is obviously very important to her.
Little Fox Crochet is primarily amigurumi crochet. There are beautiful little dolls and crochet toys and donut crochet that reminds me a bit of the work we’ve also seen from FlamingPot and Oliviartcreations. But the amigurumi is also used in other ways as well – to create rattles and cushions filled with whimsy and fun. And Little Fox Crochet also makes really cute garlands inspired by the same types of designs. You can find her work on Facebook and her own online shop.
Sarah shares that she learned to crochet from an aunt who taught her how to crochet a granny blanket when she was ten years old. Her daughter now uses that blanket, which is two decades old. She didn’t crochet much again until she resumed it during that pregnancy and launched Little Fox Crochet. She shares:
“I have always loved craft, and I am happiest while I am creating something. There is nothing quite like the sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that comes from making something with your own two hands. Opening my shop has been a dream of mine for a very long time and I am so glad that I finally took the plunge! Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone enjoying something I made just for them.”
These crochet banners remind me of what we’ve seen recently from gooseberryfool
What an adorable little crochet tea party!
