From stuffed animal beds to Mochila bags.

Many times my husband said: Why don’t you make a site. I always said something like: No I wouldn’t know what to put on a site and I am not going to make a blog.

Finally my husband decided to make a site for me. So here I am writing my first blog post 🙂


When I was little, my mother was always knitting. When my grandmother came to visit us for a few days, she was always knitting too. Once she knitted a sweater for me in 3 days. I loved that sweater. It was orange and it had a hoody. I wore it for years. I was really mad at my mother when I found out she threw it away. It still looked great in my eyes 😃


When I was 5 my mother taught me how to knit. I knitted little sweaters and beds for my stuffed animals. Later I knitted sweater for myself.

Stuffed animal beds. (I still have them)


When I was about 15 years old, I wanted to learn how to do cross stitch. My parents didn’t want to buy it for me. They said, finish what your sister started, when you still like it after finishing it, we will buy new materials. And so I finished what my sister started. It was something with violets.

After that I made a lot of cross stitch paintings.


When a baby was born in the family, I made something with cross stitch. I made paintings, a growth chart and a baby hooded towel. I embroidered on the hoody of the baby towel.


When my brother and sister in law announced that they where going to have twins, I started knitting again. I bought circular needles and made cute stuffed animals for my nieces.


In 2011 my mother taught me how to crochet.

In 2014 I started making Mochilas. I have been addicted ever since.
