Tiger King Crafts: 11 Creations You Didn’t Know You Needed In Your Life

Tiger King Crafts: 11 Creations You Didn’t Know You Needed In Your Life

​Hey there all you cool cats and kittens. Unless you’ve been living under a rock during isolation you may have heard of and seen a little Netflix show called Tiger King. It’s a wild ride of characters we didn’t even know existed in real life and we’re delighted to see the craft world paying tribute. Here are the best crafty responses to the binge-worthy programme that you didn’t even know you needed until now…

Joe Exotic doll

​This crochet doll. Designed by the fabulous Alison Hoffman, the flamboyant Tiger King is re-created in all his glory. You can buy this pattern here and make sure you check out Alison’s other crocheted creations on her Instagram @craftyiscool
