True Lovelies – Handcrafted Crochet Plants and Other Goodies

Zero maintenance creations for your space

True Lovelies (Crochet Cactus) - Chicago Artisan Market

True Lovelies has grown from the creative mind of Anna Sands, a self-taught crochet artist. Based in Chicago, True Lovelies offers a range of adorable handmade creations from crochet cacti to cozy chunky scarves.

We’re excited to welcome True Lovelies to the Chicago Artisan Market on Saturday and Sunday, March 6-7, 2021 at Morgan MFG (401 N. Morgan St., Chicago). Discover top Chicago & Midwest artisans in food, fashion, home goods + art.

The dangling pearl plants in hand painted clay pots always garner attention as do her crochet scrunchies. Anna’s macrame wall hangings are a unique hybrid between crochet and macrame — and no two are the same.

For anyone who has ever imagined a gorgeous plant and exactly how it would look in your space – but then ran into the sad, brown and dried out reality of keeping a plant alive – True Lovelies has just the solution to achieve your dream garden with no worries. You never have to water one of Anna’s zero maintenance creations, and it will be a forever plant friend.

Digging Deeper:
Anna Sands is the creative force behind True Lovelies. She started crocheting as a way to practice patience, reduce anxiety, and to express herself creatively. After needing a last minute gift for a plant exchange, Anna brainstormed a design for a crochet cacti and has been busy stitching every since.
