Today I am featuring Jenny, from JRPcrochet.  She is an artisan crafter that makes really cute crochet animals that look like figurines sculpted in yarn. Here I will showcase some of my favorites,  with a few questions I asked Jenny about her craft.

Snow Leopard, by JRPcrochet

This snow leopard was made with white acrylic yarn, and colored with fabric markers. She used a pet brush to give the leopard a furry look.

Reindeers, by JRPcrochet

The antlers of these cute reindeers are made with pipe cleaners. They look like they are talking to each other, I wonder what they are saying…

Unicorn, by JRPcrochet

Her creations are made with a wire skeleton that allows  them to be poseable. This fairy unicorn is available as a pattern on her ETSY shop.

How long have you been doing crochet?
I’ve been crocheting for about three years this summer. I had a little experience with it when I was a kid, but it was only making chains and no real stitches.

What inspired you to start crochet?
I had seen cute little amigurumis for a while before I started. I wanted to buy a few from the artists I had seen, but without the extra money, I decided to give it a go myself. I found some great free patterns on Ravelry.com. I read what stitches were needed for the patterns, then looked up how to do those stitches on youtube. Once you learn a handful of stitches, you can make a ton of things.

What do you like best about your craft?
I suppose the best thing about crochet is its flexibility. You can make a large variety of things. Clothing, accessories, dolls, it just depends on what you want to make.

You can see more of her crochet amigurumis on Deviantart-Pickleweasel360, from dragons  to lamas, birds, horses etc..  Check out her gallery!

Jenny also has a shop on ETSY called JRPcrochet where she sells her creations, as well as patterns if you want to make some of these lovely creatures yourself.
