Ann Marie Ivins's patterns
Ann Marie Ivins learned to crochet about four years ago, but anything involving fiber, fabric or fuzz has always made her happy. After discovering the world of amigurumi, she remembered the wonderful crocheted toys her grandmother made for a pack of grandkids and wondered if she could design some of her own, slightly more realistic crochet animals. Growing up in rural Texas made the familiar native wildlife a natural place to start. She hopes to develop many, many more patterns to continue and spread the family tradition of handmade toys.
