When I saw a wonderful crochet Crafter Granny by ZhayaDesign, I immediately fell in love and wanted to make her. It is such a brilliant idea to use a crochet Granny Doll as a craft organizer!
Her hairdo serves as a pincushion, and her apron has many convenient pockets where you can put hooks, scissors, stitch markers, etc. This Granny will make an excellent handmade gift and she is also part of my Crochet Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day collection.
