LET’S CHAT WITH THE CROCHET ARTIST DESIGNER
1. Please, tell us a little about yourself and your designs.
I’m Jaine from Meowamigurumi. I love to crochet, travel, cook, draw, and cinema…
I started the brand Meowamigurumi with the idea of simpleness and dream about
making a doll that everyone can do even if they are beginners. Do you agree with me
that simple is the best?
2. How long have you been crocheting?
It’s approximately 15 years that I’ve been crocheting. However, I started my shop 2
years ago. It was an interesting experience for me. I can learn many things from it. It helps
me to understand how a business going. I can make many friends from over the world
3. Why crochet? What is it that interests you?
I love making everything by myself. When I see the amigurumi doll, I fall in love from the
first sign with them. They are extremely beautiful and special. I love the way we can put
our love in the doll. It’s very different from the industrial toy.
4. Where do you usually get inspiration for your designs?
I get inspiration from everything around me. Nature is the biggest resource for my
designs. In addition, drawing is the best way to have new ideas.
5. Tell us about your happiest moments since you became an amigurumi designer?
I think I feel happy each time I finish 1 design. It’s fantastic when you can see your idea
6. What is the most struggle that you have faced during your design career?
The most struggle that I have had is a lack of time. I do many things at the same time. It’s
hard to find a reasonable schedule for everything. Sometimes, I cannot find time for
myself or my family. Right now, I learn more about the importance of the balance between
working and family.
7. How did you start to be a professional designer and treat the hobby as a business?
I love trying new things. I graduate with an economic diploma, but I never had a chance
to practice it. So, I think it will be great to start a business with my passion. I think I am
not wrong. This business gives me so much useful experience for my career.
8. What is your strategy to grow a design business? How did you start to promote yourself and on which platform?
Growing a business is not easy. My strategy is to plan everything before doing it. I always
ask myself where I want to go in the future. Then I make the developed plan follow this. I
start to promote on Insta and Facebook. They are really useful.
9. I saw that you have tons of sales on Etsy and other sales platforms, what do you think is the main factor that leads to your success today?
When I start a business, I always want to bring the most friendly and helpful service to
the clients. It’s the key to my success today.
10. You are famous right now, but I know that it would be a long story behind with all the effort and of course, luck! What is your advice for people who want to be a designer and live with a career?
The most important with me is keeping the love for what we do. Sometimes, it can be
hard to follow our dream, our passion. When a hobby becomes a business, you can feel
stressed and exhausted. There are so many things, many problems to deal with. However,
love can guide you to go in the right way.
11. What is the best advice that you have ever gotten?
I think the best advice that I have got is: “Life is an adventure, enjoy it”. It helps me to
think positive about everything.
