Franklin woman sells crochet stuffed animals

Earrings, golf club covers, oven mitts and stuffed animals don’t all seem to have much in common. However, Cari Winfree makes all of these crochet items and sells some of them on her online shop, Etsy.

It all started when Winfree’s grandmother taught her to crochet when she was a little girl.

“I remember she had problems because she was right-handed and I was left-handed, so it was all upside down,” Winfree said, laughing. “It was cute.”

It was a good memory, Winfree recalled, but she only became interested in crocheting about 30 years later when she decided to make a crocheted baby gift for her then-pregnant sister.

“I re-taught myself how to do things and I couldn’t stop,” Winfree said. “Everyone got something crocheted by me that Christmas. I started doing whatever I could.”
