We had a good old chinwag with Jennifer Santos, the Sweden-based amigurumi stitcher behind Super Cute Design. After spotting her bright and oh-so smiley creations on Instagram, we just had to find out more about them.
She told us: “I have always loved creating stuff. Crochet enables me to live out my creativity – I love that you can have an idea of what you want to make and then be able to create it with just a hook and some yarn. Even though most of the time it doesn't come out quite as I planned, I really enjoy the process of creating and I DO love yarn!
I make and sell amigurumi patterns. As I have a huge sweetooth and am such a sucker for cute and colourful stuff, I make lots of yummy rainbow things with happy faces.
I believe that creative inspiration can be found everywhere! I've found inspiration before from my children, from cartoons, even from the grocery store. Ha ha!
My favourite crochet make? I tend to like the thing I made most recently the best! If I had to choose just one thing, I think it would have to be my amigurumi gingerbread men." You can see Jennifer's latest creations on Instagram @supercutedesign and buy patterns at www.supercutedesignshop.etsy.com
