An eclectic collection of fashion and fun in crochet, knitting and weaving!
My name is Christine and I am a mum to 1 mostly gorgeous mini-me. I am located in beautiful Canberra, our Nation's capital.
I have always loved handcrafts. My grandmother taught me crochet and embroidery when I was quite young.
Mini-Me Handcrafts was started in February 2011 after my daughter started school and I was looking for a creative outlet. I love to try new patterns and designs. I also love to use hand dyed and hand spun yarns, and you will find that I often use these for my scarves, cowls, shawls and other creations, supporting other friends in the world of handmade. I have three main crafts on which I focus - crochet, weaving and knitting. I really enjoy the learning process and creativity of mastering new crafts and techniques and I love to experiment with new styles and fibres.
I use a knook to create the most beautiful hand knit pieces. It may be an unusual method of knitting, but I have found that it gives a very even stitch tension and definition which produces a wonderful fabric.
Most of my items are one of a kind; all are hand crafted with love. Therefore yarn, colours and pattern variations may occur. Small parts including small beads may not be suitable for young children. Closed to custom orders at present, but may reopen for customs as current commitments permit. I often share my crafty creations and pattern links on my blog so please take a look: jellybeanjam.blogspot.com.au/
