I have so much respect for the crafty souls who can make gorgeous throws, cushions and woolen goodies using not much more than yarn and a crochet hook. Amp the hard-factor up a level and you get clever clogs like Sydney crochet hook-master Erin Matthews.
Check out these gorgeous soft toys by Erin under her Daisy Doe label. Inspired by the Japanese 'amigurumi' style, she crochets these super-cute softies by hand. Erin has a big love of animals and her softie collection includes a range of kill-me-cute bunnies, bears, reindeer and more.
How about that Chihuahua. In fact, Erin's website promises a new range of realistic-looking toy dogs that I can't wait to see.
You can find Daisy Doe softies in the Etsy store. Follow the Daisy Doe blog to find out behind-the-scenes info and links to her Facebook and Twitter accounts.
