Nice to Meet You!

Hi, my name is Petra Salisbury and I’m the face behind Cuddly Stitches Craft. I am passionate about anything crochet and I especially love designing crochet toys. I was first introduced to handmade crafts by my mum, who is super talented and can simply create anything you can think of! I have very fond memories of the time spent with her learning how to knit and embroider when I was a little girl.

But it was not until much later in my life when I found my passion for crochet. My very first crochet creation was a Christmas snowflake, followed by a few gifts I crocheted for my lovely daughter Natalka. I still remember that wonderful feeling when I finished my first Amigurumi toy and how happy Natalka was to receive a toy that mummy made especially for her!

I am super excited that I can share my free Amigurumi patterns with you here on my blog so you can crochet that special gift for your little ones to treasure! I have also written a few Amigurumi tutorials to help you along so don’t forget to check them out. And if you would like to receive updates on new patterns then make sure to sign up to my Newsletter below.

Thank you for visiting and happy crocheting! 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Amigurumi difficult to learn?
