Only a few days left of our Christmas Countdown! Today’s featured artist is Chrisandra from And She Laughs Crochet.
And She Laughs
I’m Chrisandra from And She Laughs Crochet and Stitch Together Official. I live in Canada across the river from Detroit, Michigan with my husband and our 8-month-old son. I’m a busy baby mom but love to squeeze in crochet time every day.
I learned to crochet in elementary school and come from a family of crafters. I picked my hook back up as a hobby in University. I started crocheting amigurumi gifts for the kids in my life about 6 years ago and fell in love with my little-stuffed creations! I now make a mix of wearables, accessories, and amigurumi.
One of the best parts of being a crocheter is the fiber arts community! As an introvert, it is great to meet friends online and eventually make real-life friends in my own city and across the world! It’s one of the reasons I am happy to be part of the Stitch Together team. The design team includes an amazing group of designers and the Stitched Together group is filled with incredible crafters. I love meeting new crochet friends. My favorite place to interact is on Instagram. Say hello to me @andshelaughs.

Billy the Buck
Billy the Buck was originally made for a friend who is a hunter and was having a baby. I later added the red nose and it’s now part of my annual Christmas tradition! You can make it with a black or red nose and the pattern includes instructions to make a nose cap just like Rudolph had in the movie to change the red nose black!
