I work with excellent quality eco-friendly materials (100% cotton or 85% cotton 15% fibre yarns) will ensure perfect finishes with special attention to detail.

I work by order. Please contact me by WhatsApp or email to discuss all the details such as colors, sizes, design, prices, and more.

Depending on when you place your order, available colours may differ from the samples.

An initial payment of 50% is required to start the project. The remainder is due upon completion.

Lead times can vary from 1 week to 3 months. This time frame is an estimate and may change, depending on the type of project and the volume of orders at the time.

I will try, whenever possible, to keep you informed of the evolution of the whole process through photographs and text messages.

My Story

My name is Cristina Vasconcelos and I was born and raised in a small countryside province in Portugal where I’ve always had a very close relationship with handcrafts as per my country’s traditions. Having learned to knit and crochet with my eldest sisters, I started crafting crochet dolls and doll apparel during childhood by the age of 7.

Throughout high school I used to make beanies, sweaters, scarves, and other fashion accessories to sell. Over the years, I’ve always created the gifts to offer my loved ones on special occasions.

In 2012, I set sail for Canada to start a great adventure full of challenges. I did not indulge in the pleasures of my hobby for a while, but as soon as I got back to it, crafting beanies and scarves, they quickly became very successful amongst my work colleagues and friends and soon received many orders.

Crochet is my deep passion and I craft each piece with utmost care. My dream is to bring a little bit of that passion and care to as many people as possible!
