Sandra Muller established Lulu Compotine in 2018 after initially learning to knit clothes for her children. She then stumbled upon the wonderful realm of amigurumi – vibrant, crocheted cuddly toys! Consequently, her first charming crochet Owl came to life. Since then, not a day has passed without Sandra taking up her crochet hook! Gradually, character dolls have taken precedence over animals, as she relishes the process of crafting garments and accessories, reminiscent of her childhood spent playing with dolls. Sandra showcases her work on social media and offers tips and techniques on her blog.
