My name is Nicole Riley and I am the creator, blogger and designer for Nicki’s Homemade Crafts. I provide free crochet pattern that are well written with many photos and usually at least one video to help support the ones that need additional help on the patterns. All my pattern are designed with functionality, love and familiarity in mind. I get inspired by nature and the things that I come across daily.
For a little bit of background about me, I live with my husband, kids and 3 cats and 1 tortoise in San Diego, CA. I am originally from Germany though. Also, I have a Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry and Cell Biology from UCSD and currently still work in research while blogging about crochet on the side.
I always loved crafts and made many paintings and drawings when I was younger. Though I still love those crafts, I am now more into crochet, sewing, beading and taking nature photographs for the past years.
I absolutely love creating crochet patterns and tutorials, as well as help others learn this amazing therapeutic hobby. There is nothing that relaxes me more than sitting in my craft chair and crochet.
