I started in January of 2010 when I purchased a "teach yourself to crochet" kit. I learned to make chains, then swatches and when I got to flowers I found out that people loved them so I focused on that area. I started to research A LOT about crocheting materials, different kinds of fibers etc. I noticed that I liked materials that gave a little bit of shine to the crocheted items. I found ribbon, and it was an eye opener, I loved how it looked. That's how I decided that I would make ribbon crocheted accessories from then on, and that's how Too Cute Design was born.
The story doesn't end there, because being the hippie tree-hugger that I am I wanted to use my craft to reduce a little bit of the waste that we produce. SO I researched again, used some "plarn" and stumbled upon VHS in a site that I would like to remember so I could link to it. This was the result:
That's the story of my crochet beginnings and my brand. I also wanted to tell you that I know how to make things like scarves and throws but in this tropical island people don't use such things; it's too hot :-(
I'll continue with this story later on. Stay tuned!
