Hey there! I'm Vanessa, life long DIY-er and craft supply hoarder extraordinaire! After learning how to crochet during college, The Pudgy Rabbit was founded to channel some of this creative energy and all the little creatures I was creating.


Over time, The Pudgy Rabbit shifted from finished items to DIY craft kits so others could learn a new skill and create something special with their own hands. My designs are often inspired by favorite foods, animals, and anything else that can brighten a day.

Along the way, we've been featured in publications such as Do It Yourself magazine, nominated for Best New Product at the 2015 National Stationery Show, and published our first crochet book, Happy-Gurumi. (Check it out here!) Today, The Pudgy Rabbit has a growing wholesale and customer base and an expanding collection of kits, supplies, and other fun items.
