Lovingly Handmade Crochet

A journey through chronic illness to creativity!

My name is Laura and I am the owner of Lovingly Handmade Crochet. I became disabled at just 28 years old. I had to give up my new teaching job in special education as I was unable to cope with the hours and intensity involved in a career in education. So instead of moping around, I decided to take up crochet as a hobby, and not let my illness stop me enjoying my natural creativity and need to keep busy. I now spend my time recreating people's pets in a "plushy" cuddly toy versions full time, from home. I have always been a pet lover and surrounded myself with lots of furry companions since I was a child. There is something so special about the bond between a pet and their owner - it's almost magical! My plush toys have also been well received as memorial gifts for pets that have passed away, and can offer great comfort at a truly difficult time.

As well as offering these unique pet keepsakes, I hope to inspire other sufferers of chronic illnesses too! Thank you for getting to know me and I hope you like our creations!
