Milliebelle Feature!

Welcome to the team! Leave some love!

Hello, My name is Sandy and I am Millie's Grammy. I have been actively crocheting for about 5 years making simple single crochet afghans out of Red Heart Light and Lofty for friends and neighbors. My grandaughter Amelia (aka Millie) is the namesake in Millie Moon's Menagerie. In July 2009 when I first found out I was going to be a Grandma I started making crocheted animals for Millie as her nursery was going to be primary colors and animals. I remember my first animal was a bunny and the instructions indicated it should be 7 inches and it ended up 2 feet long. Hey, I gave it my best shot as I had never read a pattern before and only knew single crochet! After that I just kept trying more and more animals with different stitches. They also served as great shower decorations for her baby shower! After she was born I began to try more and more new items such as hats and booties, and then I tried my hand at sweaters. Next thing you knew I became Millie's grandma who makes the sweaters! I've made her many sweater and hat sets with various appliques, strawberries, lollipops, watermelons, and most recently her mommy requested a cupcake which was the inspiration for this sweater and beret combo. I get a couple requests a month for sweaters, but I still love making animals the best and they still end up bigger than the instructions say, but at least now I have learned why!
Thanks for visiting my etsy store!


  1. I think this is just too cute! Wish I had a baby now! LOL!

  2. As of yet I haven't been brave enough to attempt a sweater, but this inspires me to try! :-)
