Three Legged Rabbit crochet And amigurumi
Making geek and nature based crochet and amigurumi toys and dolls plus putting the patterns out there!
In the Beginning
It all started on maternity leave. I had a month before I was due to meet my son and wanted a project. I bought a load of wool and got started on making what was the beginning of an old passion but with a new direction.
A month flew by and at the end I had a completed Sawtooth from Horizon Zero Dawn. Seeing it completed I realised I started on one of the hardest projects I could have picked and if I could do that from the get go, what other patterns could I create?
So here I am, now creating a new patter almost on a weekly basis if not more but with no home to put the patterns out there in one place.
That's where this kickstarter and you good people come in! The funds I am hoping to raise will be enough to get the basics of a website started added to the money I have already raised through selling patterns. I hope once up and running to offer more free patterns to spread the love of crochet and pattern creation.
Nothing feels better than making custom creations of characters or animals you love but cant buy anywhere and the problem solving which comes with the creation of each new pattern.
I have set the goal to cover the base website creation and hosting cost. Anything above this will help in getting a redesign of the logo to improve branding. From there I can also purchase more wool of different colours to vastly improve the range of creations I can make going forward!
If it supersedes even those low level goals I will stretch to a small set up to take cleaner photos of the finished products and how to photos as I go along, giving clearer photos for the pattern write ups and how tos.
Risks and challenges
As with everything there are risks and the main one here is keeping up creating more patterns that people want whilst the project runs to keep interest up. I will overcome this if it becomes an issue by enlisting more help on weekends and committing extra time to pattern creation.
If the goal is reached then the next risk is website development and ensuring that the final product is user friendly. I have created a website previously for a financial advice firm and will build on that experience to create this new website.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
