Hello, I’m Janine Holmes, the owner and designer behind Moji-Moji Design.
Welcome to my blog, a little corner of the web where I can tell you all about my new designs, my inspirations and the processes that help me create the characters in my collection.
This is a place where I plan to share with you my top tips for really neat and professional looking amigurumi. Things I have learnt through the internet, by talking to other amigurumi enthusiasts or have just found out through trial and error. I will also be designing and sharing free Moji-Moji patterns with you on here from time to time so it’s worth checking back every now and again to see what’s new!
I specialize in amigurumi crochet. I love the organic way of designing in this media with just a hook, a ball of yarn and my imagination! I’ve loved textiles of all kinds ever since I can remember. I was card weaving when I was five and knitting away by the time I was eight. I have a BA(Hons) and a Masters degree in Constructed Textiles where I concentrated mainly on knit and weave with some embroidery, print-making and felting thrown in for good measure. Since discovering amigurumi crochet a few years ago I have become totally addicted to the point that all other hobbies (and a fair bit of housework!) have been almost completely discarded!
So come and join me and my four cats, who are always getting in on the act whenever they can, on my crochet adventures!
