cute and cuddly crochet critters

As everyone knows, you’re never too old to appreciate a good stuffed animal. And yes, you can take that as permission to surround your home with as many of Irene Strange’s creations as you like (we sure will). From hook-holding llamas to plush penguins, London-based crochet artist Irene has lovingly handmade a range of adorable animals that will bring a smile to the face of any child or grown-up child. Irene’s grandmother introduced her to the joys of craft and we love that she’s decided to pass it on to the world. Check out her menagerie of wonders at Etsy.
