About Make Me Roar

Make Me Roar

Colourful collection of easy to follow amigurumi crochet patterns

We are a husband and wife team living in Eastbourne on the South Coast of the UK with our two wonderful children. I (Kate) am the crochet & amigurumi addict who develops all the designs. Martin is a graphic designer who makes everything else non-crochet look awesome.

I started my craft business in 2008 when I made a sock monkey for my boss who had just gone on maternity leave. I then discovered sock monsters and thought that they would be far more interesting to make. I then thought I'm sure other people would love to make these, so my first patterns were created and that's when we opened the online store.

The name 'Make Me Roar' was born when we created the range of sock monster making kits. We love to encourage people to 'MAKE' and our designs are bold, colourful and like to 'ROAR!'

When I was pregnant in 2011 with my first child I came down with a really bad case of flu, but this actually had an upside - I was able to finally sit and learn what I'd always wanted to learn - crochet. I fell in love with crochet immediately. At first I kept it simple, with a blanket for each new member of the family. But after branching out into soft toys for my little ones, I thought, I can design something like this. So I did. And I found I was actually pretty good at it.

The highlight of my crochet career so far has got to be when I was selected to compete on Kirstie's Handmade Christmas! You can read all about the day here.
