About the tutor

My name is Tanya and I have been crocheting for about 4 years. Over the years I have made all sorts of toys, ranging from tiny turtles up to large flamingos. I love giving them as gifts and keepsakes; they are personal and unique. Crocheting is one of the best forms of relaxation where you get something cute at the end to keep.
