I’m Bela, the woman behind Bela Crochets.
I love crafting of all types but crocheting is my passion.
I began crocheting in 2014. I was suck at home for a few months following a surgery on my foot. Needing something to keep myself occupied, I decided to give crocheting a try. I taught myself to crochet and people began asking to buy my products right away. Since then I have partaken in various endeavors including commissioned work, craft fairs and an Etsy page. My original Etsy shop was entirely Harry Potter themed and included many items, some crocheted and some not. I have since had to close that shop but hope to reopen some day as an LGBT merchandise shop. I have created a second Etsy page for the selling of my patterns and the occasional finished product as well as fulfillment of special requests.
I was working hard on preparing to open my LGBT Etsy shop when I decided to change focus. Four years later I was once again stuck at home after a surgery when I realized my real passion in creation rather than product fulfillment. For that reason I have decided to dive into pattern design so I can constantly create and I have put the other project on the back burner (for now).
I hope you enjoy the patterns you find on this site.
