- About -

Hello, I am Bas a crocheter and my superpower is designing and creating a flower fantasy world. My flowers grow with yarn and love and they bloom continuously in my studio in Rotterdam.

About About About

I have always been inspired by nature, plants and flowers. To balance my urban city life I have painted the walls of my apartment green and surrounded myself with lots of house plants. Here my flower dolls come to life. Doing crochet and designing new patterns make me happy. I love creating a flower fantasy world. They show all the colors of the rainbow and you do not need to water them. I am sure they will bring you happiness!

My Zabbez adventure started with a yellow Sunflower that loves to fly to the sun. Read all about how Zabbez got started on: The making of Sunflower Sam.

Do you want to help me?

No flower ever grows without water, soil and sun. Zabbez has grown steadily from the first day I planted a seed. I am happy my dolls have touched so many of you and in return, many have touched me as well. Thanks to all the volunteers who help me share the love.
