Hi there! I’m Niina, your author here at Leikitty, and a happy little crafter living in the central west of NSW in Australia.

I’m a random maker of things and this blog tracks my project wins and fails and the inspirations I find along the way.

I run an Etsy store called Give Me A Crown selling sewn items such as knitting project bags, needle storage pouches and other fun things. I can be found on instagram as @givemeacrown and I can also be found on Ravelry as givemeacrown.

So what does “Leikitty” mean?

It’s a Finnish word meaning “played with” and that’s just what these posts are about. These are crafts and stories in which I’ve played with materials or techniques. Keeping track of what I’ve done and what has worked means that future projects will be just that little bit better. Sharing these experiences will hopefully also give you some ideas for your own projects.
