Pattern Paradise

Hi, I’m Maria and I have always loved to create. I can remember making Barbie Doll clothes out of scraps of fabric as early as 6 years old and I’ve never met a craft I didn’t want to try, but crochet has been a passion since I was a kid.

I was fascinated by my mother’s friend who could make fabulous clothing out of odds and ends. I would watch her crochet and try to memorize how her hands moved. One day I picked up a hook and some crochet thread that my mother had laying around, and I started to crochet. The first thing I made was a crude doily, but it was enough to encourage me to continue. I bought pattern books with my allowance and tried to follow the diagrams to learn different stitches.

Over the years I have tried various crafts but always return to my first loves, sewing and crocheting! Pattern Paradise is my opportunity to share my creative ideas with all of you. I hope you enjoy your visits here and will return often!
