Hi! Tell us a little about yourself.
Hello My name is Izabela. I am 25 and I study the last year of veterinary school to become a vet. I love crocheting, cats, my friends and pampering time.
When did you start crafting and how?
I loved crafts from an early age, I played with beads and made many friendship bracelets as a child. I have learned to crochet in elementary school, but didn´t like it until 4 years ago, after I have finished my exams. I wanted to relax and make something beautiful.
That’s awesome! And how did you start designing?
I always modified crocheted items, when I was following patterns, so when I have started making things just with my imagination it was very natural for me.
Do you have a favorite craft type and if so - why?
It has to be crocheting, I love everything about it. The flow, how easy it is for me and how intuitive it can be.
What’s are you working on now?
I am working on pink bubblegum mohair sweater
Which of your makes are you most proud of?
The Alice in the Wonderland dress. It took me ages to finish. It is a combination of fingering and mostly lace yarn.
What inspires you to create?
I get inspiration from everywhere Instagram, current fashion styles, Pinterest, movies.
What is your usual process of designing?
Designing has to start with an idea. I have so many ideas for designs, I can´t make them in a lifetime, but I have to try Next I choose the pattern texture and yarn and start working on it. I measure everything as I go and I adjust to fit my expectation.
Any favorite song, book or movie you would like to recommend?
I loved La la land movie and the songs from it, it is very nice to crochet and listen to them.
Share a funny story that happened to your recently
It is not that funny, but I smile every time I watch my cat enjoy all the paper boxes I get from packages.
Currently I have a destroyed box in my room, that doesn´t look like a box anymore. It is shattered and flat, you can almost see through it.
But I can´t throw it away, she loves it.
