TL Yarn Crafts Toni Lipsey Designer Crochet Instructor

Hey babes! I’m Toni, the designer and instructor behind TL Yarn Crafts. TLYCBlog is a crochet and craft enthusiast blog where I share inspiration and education for makers of all skill levels. Since starting my creative business, I’ve been committed to exploring every nook and cranny of crochet and I’m excited to share my discoveries with you. Stick around for crochet tips and tricks, roundups of my favorite things, and musings on what it’s like to be a creative entrepreneur.

About TL Yarn Crafts

TL Yarn Crafts began in 2013 (which feels like forever ago) as an online shop for crochet accessories. I offered beanies, scarves, ear warmers, blankets, baby things, you name it! In 2015, I was looking for the ideal slouchy beanie pattern to add to my shop and couldn’t find it anywhere. Some hats had the brim I wanted while others had the texture and others still had the slouch. Frustrated beyond belief, I set out to create my own ideal beanie. Several months and a few dozen discarded samples later, the Mega Pom Beanie was born and so was a crochet designer. Since then I’ve designed 30+ accessories, garments, and amigurumi dolls. I shifted my focus solely to designing in early 2017 and quit my day job later that year to pursue it full time. Talk about scary! Help quell my anxiety and see all of my designs on TLYarnCrafts.com.

About Toni

Outside of crochet, I’m an Army brat turned mid-Western wife. My husband, a.k.a. The Hubs, and I have hung our hats in Columbus, Ohio since we got married in 2010. When I’m not surrounded by yarn, I’m driving my cats Peanut Butter and Sheba crazy with our dozens of cat nip toys. My favorite things are Netflix, cell phone cases, and exploring my city’s landmarks. My least favorite things are snow (I know!), naps, and having to put on real pants. My latest obsession is trying out Pinterest recipes. Follow my Food & Recipes board to see some of my favorites.
