Hello. My name is Serah and I’m an amigurumi addict.

I saw an amigurumi for the first time in 2011. It was at that moment I knew what I was supposed to do; I was destined to create adorable things out of yarn. There was a slight problem though—I didn’t know how to crochet! But you know how the saying goes: ‘when there’s a will, there are always YouTube video tutorials’, and that’s how I learned to crochet.

Since then, I have designed quite a few patterns, met many wonderful fellow crocheters from around the world, and managed to get some of my designs published in books and magazines.

Born and raised in Sikkim, a beautiful Himalayan state in northeast India, I currently live in Kathmandu with my husband and our two furry kids.

WHAT’S MY BLOG ABOUT Tales of Twisted Fibers banner_Nepali

yarn  (yärn): n.1. A continuous strand of twisted fibers of natural or synthetic material, such as cotton or nylon, used in knitting, weaving, or sewing. 2. Informal To tell an entertaining tale or series of tales.

I’m just someone who loves working with yarn—whether it’s designing my very own little amigurumi or trying out patterns by other amazing knit and crochet doll designers. And all these tales of me fiddling around with these twisted fibers end up here on this blog.

BOOKS Tales of Twisted Fibers_Books

I have been lucky enough to have my patterns included by Meteoor Books in their amazing amigurumi books . You can find my Miss Kitty Catty and Foxy O’Neal in Amigurumi Animals at Work, Papa Bear, Mama Bear & Baby Bear in Amigurumi Parent and Baby Animals, and Choppy, the clumsy juggler in Amigurumi Circus.

I’d like you to know I’m really thrilled you decided to check out this little corner of my blog and spend a bit more time getting to know me. Which, I believe, means you love my designs enough to care who made them. So thank you for visiting. I hope you’ll drop by again to see all the yarny new tales I have spun for you.

      Hi. Thanks for liking my Bee Girl so much 🙂 Yes, I’ve started taking orders for amigurumis (but only for the ones I’ve designed myself) and I think the little Bee would make an awesome birthday gift, if I may say so myself 😀 If you don’t mind, I can email you the details of the doll and the whole order to delivery process. Do let me know if you are okay with that. Thanks again for your interest in my amigurumi 🙂

      P.S. I really need to put my email address here somewhere. Thanks for pointing that out 🙂

    I love your designs – and your finished work looks SO professional. I’m afraid you’ll have to imagine the applause, but it’s there. And kudos to you for requesting help for a worthy cause in exchange for your patterns – that’s pretty awesome. So thanks. You rock.

    Hi there! I saved your Christmas little bears since a long time ago, but only recently I managed to make Naughty and I have Nice in WIP. Anyway, I find amazing that the two of us have two furry kids – I have one cat and one dog, they are both the same size 😀 and if you would like to know them, they appear in this small video, which we filmed last night in order to describe better the Naughty that I’m giving away this Christmas! tell me if you like it! 😀 and thank you for the pattern! Kisses from Romania! https://www.facebook.com/creativepapillon/videos/1165347200209485/

    Hi Serah! Thank you for the Batman pattern! I made it for a Northern Birthday Box recipient. The lil guy wanted a Batman birthday! As he is turning 1, what do you do? So many toys have chocking hazards. I think that he will love his Batman. Batman is going to Nunavut!

    • Tales of Twisted Fibers says:

      Hi Vivianne! I just googled what a Northern Birthday Box Project is and I must say it’s a wonderful initiative. And it’s really lovely of you to spend your time and resources to brighten a family’s day. I hope the little fella has/had a wonderful birthday. And I hope he likes his new buddy Batman. ❤️
