Penny the Piglet is as sweet as can be, and fashionable, too! Yes, she’s a wonderful baker, but her #1 passion is throwing surprise parties for all her friends at Jo’s Home. This piggy simply loves sprinkling the house with love and happiness for any occasion.

Several designers from around the world got together to work with Joke Vermeiren (a graphic designer/publisher in Belgium) to create a pattern book filled with super cute animals. In 2012, our first indie project, a book called Zoomigurumi, was born! :D Since then, more books have been published, and a few of my patterns appear in them.
