Carmen from CarmenPay Craft

Posted by The Craft Gossiper at 7:49 AM

I'm just a normal girl who just joined the craft community around June last year. I love to try all kinds of craft but I totally love to make plushies because they are cute. I make felt plushies and also amigurumi. I love both as much but amigurumi takes more time than felt plushies. I wish to share with everyone my love for craft.

Carmen is such a colorful and cute Asian girl who originates from Malaysia and recently started doing voice over tutorials to further engage her viewers with higher quality tutorials. She has over 830 subscribers on YouTube and it is so clear that all her fans absolutely love her work. Carmen has a different take on the things that she makes and from what I see, she loves fairy tales and translates them into mini felt and amigurumi plush toys. Her recent dedication to her subscribers by taking a step forward and trying voice over tutorials shows how passionate she is about spreading the word of craft on YouTube and is absolutely  amazing ! Definitely worth the subscribe for a rising star with talent like  hers.

Proud of her brand!

Carmen : Essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail. Keep up the good work and learn from mistakes and other craftubers. Then more subbies will come your way.

10. Inspiring message for us and your viewers?
Carmen : When we wake up in the morning, we have two simple choices. Go back to sleep and dream, or wake up and chase all your dreams. Choice is yours… So what are you waiting for?  Go chase them all.
