Megan Lapp of Crafty Intentions has been creating crochet creatures from her imagination since 2017, and has amassed thousands of fans who just can't wait for her next exciting design. Megan’s background is in the Fine Arts, having graduated with honors from Lafayette College with a double major in Art and Music. Most of her artwork was three-dimensional in nature, but while she could always envision what she wanted to make, she could never get it to turn out quite the way she saw it in her head—until she discovered crochet! With crochet, she was suddenly able to create exactly what she wanted, and with time was able to translate her ideas into patterns for others to follow, and Crafty Intentions was born.
