knit & crochet toys handmade in South Australia

NOTE: Pear Dinkum website is still under construction. Please enjoy my free patterns currently available, and excuse any outdated/broken links. Thank you!

If you’re a knitter or crocheter with a love for Jesus and an obsession for making heart-centred toys, then I’m your gal!

I strongly believe there are NO coincidences, and each of us has been perfectly placed by God to impact the world around us in a way only we can. Each of us has our own powerful stories, and each of us has experienced character-defining moments that have rocked us to our core.

Passionate, purpose-driven and God-centered


I’m on a mission to make beautiful handmade toys that spark conversations, tell stories and teach lessons. I hope you do, too, because that’s what Pear Dinkum is all about!
