Hi, I’m Alice!
I’m a crafter from the Netherlands living in Germany. On this new website I share crochet stitches, tutorials and free crochet patterns for beginners.
I’m mom to two daughters and two fur babies. My oldest daughter is a crochet designer who shares free patterns on her blog wilmade.com.
My hands have always been creative. The last 20 years I’ve sewn clothes for my daughters, decorated my home with customized furniture, pimped my husband’s cars with handmade car seat covers and I’ve run an embroidery business from home.
When Wilma started her crochet adventure in 2014, I naturally picked up this old hobby of mine. Together we’ve learned a lot and crochet became more than just a hobby. We’ve created our own designs, learned writing patterns and visited craft events.
The last few years I’ve helped Wilma behind the scenes (designing, testing, promoting, recording videos..). With the encouragement from my family I’ve started my own website focused on crochet stitches, tutorials and simple designs for beginners such as pot holders, shawls, afghan squares and blankets.
Crochet has become a big part of our life. My youngest daughter Karla often models our designs and my husband helps taking pictures. My fur babies fully support me as well and never leave my side on the couch. 😉
I’m excited to see my new website grow and share more tutorials with you. I would love to see your work made with my patterns on Instagram or Facebook. Use #crochething and tag me @crochethingmom so we can all see!
