Annie is a mum who crochets toys and other things as a side business. Anniegurumi is a play on words – amigurumi is the Japanese art of making crocheted dolls. So Annie adapted the word to fit her name as she is the creator of her crocheted dolls!
Annie makes dolls as well as patterns for people to buy and make the designs themselves. She mainly runs Anniegurimi so she can be a stay-at-home mother for her son. Annie started crocheting to make gifts for friends and then their friends asked and so on. Her husband and friends encouraged her to open a shop so others can purchase her creations. Annie opened an Etsy shop and participated in Handmade Hong Kong as well as Etsy Made Local in Hong Kong.
Annie loves what she does and finds crafting incredibly relaxing and helps with her anxiety. It has brought her a lot of happiness and she loves seeing people smile from seeing her dolls.
