Having lived my life as an artist online for the past few years, I've learned that I can't survive it on "Likes" and positive comments alone. I do sell my wares and offer my tutorials as products of my artistic work, but I still fall short on food and bill $$$ every. single. month. Opening this Ko-fi account and building a small group of artistic patrons will allow me to continue developing my crochet style, while wasting less of my brain on money-stress. Thank you for your support!
My name is Ashley Lee Zhong, and all I want to do, all day long, is make things. Sometimes that means crocheting piles of granny squares, sewing bed sheets into a ball gown, or even just giving myself a sweet glitter manicure. Snapdragon Brand is the culmination of my insatiable creative appetite; it’s my dream and my baby. The core philosophy of Snapdragon Brand is: Craft is for EVERYONE. I promise to live by that ethos as I continue to learn and grow in my place as a maker. Right now, for me that means: an emphasis on writing my patterns to be as accessible as possible to all learning styles and offering fully size-inclusive garment patterns, so everyone feels included.
