Hi!  I’m Shelley.  I love to design crochet patterns that extend your skills, gently challenging and encouraging you to create crochet wonders.  I get a real kick out of seeing folks create beautiful crochet items they thought were beyond their skills.  If you can crochet a granny square, you can do my patterns, if you’re willing to learn and have a go.  I always provide lots of support with links to videos, step by step photos and clear instructions.  You can find my patterns here.

I love to design crochet squares and blankets.  I really do.  Seamless crochet is my thing. You wont find obvious joins or a line up a side of my blocks.  I’m pretty pedantic about it.  😉

I have written 7 ebooks so far with plans for more.

I’m also a mother, wife & worker. I live by the coast in South West Victoria, Australia. I am very lucky!

I can be found in lots of places about the ‘net.

Do you love Instagram like I love Instagram? It’s where you’ll find me most often. My name there is “spincushions”.

Come and hang out with me on Facebook and Twitter, or maybe check out my Pinterest.


In real life my work can be found in Julia Street Creative Space  in Portland.

Why “Spincushions”?

I used to make felt pincushions. I hand sewed them all and I loved doing it – hence the name ‘Spincushions’,  but times change and crochet is my current obsession.
