About

 

Hi, my name is Lisa.

I’m the crochet pattern designer and owner of HELLOhappy.

HELLOhappy was born in 2008 as an Etsy shop and it’s been slowly growing ever since! I was only 19 when my dreams of owning my own business finally came to fruition. Originally I started selling little felt plushies (and random crafts like buttons and brooches), but the recession finally took hold in 2010 and I wasn’t making sales anymore, so I quit for a while. A couple years later I came back and started selling crochet plushies (plus customized monster high dolls! Ah, nostalgia), but didn’t have much luck. I knew I wanted to keep crocheting, but I didn’t want to make the same things over and over, and my items weren’t selling, so I thought selling patterns might a good fit for me. I sold my very first crochet pattern on december 22, 2013! And ever since then I’ve been dedicated to making adorable crochet patterns.
