unaTuna: A World of Crochet Cuteness

In her own words:

My name is Oonah, I am 34 going on 18. I was born and raised in Berkeley Ca and believe it or not I still reside here, I cant get enough of the cultural diversity! I have always been interested in arts and crafts. I have been fortunate enough to have a mother who is as well and has taught me many arts and crafts skills including crochet. My love of all things Japanese has driven me to amigurumi and putting a Japanese bent to most of my work.

I honestly can't remember when I started crafting. I suppose seriously I would say maybe in high school. I started off by crocheting hats and scarfs for myself and friends. I got into amigurumi crafts a few years back when I found a amigurumi magazine in the San Francisco Japan town book store. I could not resist how cute the patterns were and how different from anything else I had seen.

My most favorite item in my shop is the Amigurumi Baby Fish. It is also my store mascot. I created almost all of the patterns that I work from. But this one I figured out all by myself and I think its pretty darn cute. I am very proud of it. Also my clip on ears are very popular. I am not a fan of headbands and wanted to create a product that looked like you actually have animal ears growing out of your head. People of all ages seem to get a kick out of them. They are perfect for a good game of cat and mouse!
