Hello! My name is Diana and I am originally from Bulgaria.
I started teaching myself how to crochet about 5 years ago when my daughter was about a year old. I wanted to make for her nice clothes but soon realized that dolls is what I love making. My daughter even inspired the name of my Etsy shop and now my blog. She used to have a set of pink mouse shoes that she loved to wear everywhere even when they were too big for her. She was obsessed with those shoes! And I want to create dolls and patterns that people are obsessed about. So, the name, Pink Mouse Boutique, fits perfectly.
Today I can say I am a bit obsessed with crochet. I always have a project in mind and carry my crochet supplies almost everywhere with me.
I prefer designing my own patterns. Designing is fun and so rewarding. And I usually start with a sketch (though the end result not always looks like my sketch).
Some of my patterns you can find free on this blog and some are for sale in my shops:
On Etsy, I also sell finished item, mostly miniature dolls and creatures but sometimes chunky baskets as well.
Whether you use one of my free or for sale patterns, you are more than welcome to sell the finished product. However, please DO NOT sell, translate, or redistribute in any shape or form my patterns. Thank you!
TRANSLATING: Please do not translate my patterns (free or for sale) without asking. Thank you!
