Theresa here, the one-mom show behind Petit Remy Crochet Toys + Knits! Thanks for stopping by :)
I started my small crochet toys + accessories shop in 2016 but I had a burning desire to learn to crochet and knit when I was expecting my first son back in 2011. I was already a dog mom to a tiny 5 pound senior rescue dog named Remy. He was a survivor of Hurricane Katrina -- his amazing story and willingness to love had a huge impact on my heart and he was truly my first son. I tried to teach myself crocheting as best as I could, playing with yarn while he would snuggle beside me. We had several great years together before he passed around Christmas of 2013.
After taking a couple of crochet classes years later, I started to gift friends my creations, which with their encouragement is where the idea to open a small shop came from. I wanted some of the items I made to have a positive impact, with my original intention being to donate a portion of sales to select charities. You can find charitable items in the Save Remy Collection in the "Shop" section. With these items I hope to draw awareness to senior dog adoption and animal welfare. When I'm taking a little break from being Mummy to my 2 boys, I'm busy creating colourful, quirky and cuddly things for you and your littles.
NEW to Petit Remy are Crochet Classes! I've had so many requests from people asking to learn how to make for themselves and am very excited to share my love of crocheting and crafting with others. I also am working on getting some how-to crochet videos made so stay tuned for those as well.
Also check for styling and photography classes on the site and blog posts all about Mom Life + Pop Culture.
For the most recent updates, please follow my shop on Instagram @petit.remy and sign up for email updates so you don't miss out on any important announcements! I consider it a privilege to make items for you and especially your children, I know as a mother how the days are long but the years are short. For something I made to be a part of their childhood and your memories of this precious time is nothing short of an honour. Thank you for choosing to support Petit Remy and small business -- it means more than you know!
