Independent Belle



About Me


Fifteen years ago, I found myself in the big city of Chicago with an even bigger heartbreak.  It was in that moment, many miles away from my home in Arkansas that I learned to be an Independent Belle. I’ve been making my way on my own since and I’ve never looked back.

I started making crochet animals as baby gifts for friends but once a few were posted to social media, I quickly realized these little characters invoked a happiness in others as well. So rather than keep them all to myself I decided to share them with you and I hope they bring you as much joy as they do me.



My first and forever muse - Henry!
