Crochet Pattern Directory
Hi, I'm Camelia Shanahan, an Irish based knitwear designer. I've launched my fashion label Meli Bondre in the Spring of 2011.
My mum taught me to knit and crochet when I was a child, my dad taught me sewing, so I named my brand Meli (that's how my childhood friends used to call me) and Bondre after my parents, to honour them.
My blog, Crochet & Knit Design Heaven is the place where I intend to share with you some of my design ideas. I hope you'll be inspired by my work.
