  1. The patterns in the "Modern Amigurumi for the Home" book are all adorable! How would you ever choose which one to start first. I love the pig and the gray kitty, but that rooster is simply fabulous (and I don't even collect roosters) A very cute craft leaflet, Elf! Thanks for introducing me to it.

    1. I love finding new patterns, Mouse, and this is a really cute collection. Thanks for mentioning the rooster as I realized I called it a chicken. Missed the 'comb', LOL. I have now corrected it. :)

  2. I haven't heard of this (no surprise) - however, wow, Amigurumi is so nice. I absolutely love the designs featured above. What a fantastic gift for crochet fans. Honestly, if my hands hold up, I wouldn't mind getting back into crocheting - did it before and it was addictive (in a really good way). Thanks for this introduction, I'll have to remember this one as a gift.

    1. Crochet is not only fun to do, especially with cute patterns such as these featured here, but is a very calming activity. Hope you decide to try it again. Thanks for visiting my review, Barbara.

  3. These Amigurimi designs are absolutely adorable, Elf! I bet this leaflet with eight patterns would be a great introduction to Amigurimi for a crochet enthusiast who is new to this genre.

  4. Amigurumi looks a very beautiful (and cuddly) craft. I am not a great crafter, but I immediately thought this would make such a wonderful gift for a crafter! The designs are really lovely. Thank you for introducing me to this craft.

  5. I have crochet hooks and lots of yarn, so I'm thinking that maybe I just need to sit and try to do some of these little animals! I love the ones that you do and this just might be the push I needed. Thanks Pat!

  6. Well, I don't crochet but I can see what a wonderful gift this would make for somebody who does. Thanks, Pat

  7. Definitely had not heard of the term 'Amigurumi' though I do know someone (you) who practices the art of crocheting beautiful small dolls!
