Zoomigurumi 6 Review ~ Cuteness Overload!!

The Red Panda on the cover is adorable!

The good folks over at Meteoor Books sent me a free copy of their newest Zoomigurumi book, Zoomigurumi 6. I’ve reviewed a past copy and was very excited to see what new animals were getting the Zoomigurumi treatment.

There is a total of 15 animals in the book.

Just like the past version I received, the book is a collection of 15 patterns by a variety of designers (15 ones in this book, 12 in the previous). Though they are all by different people, you get the feel of a very cohesive vision throughout the book. I give lots of credit to the publishers for their great effort at this cohesion (I feel like Tim Gunn during Fashion Week).

Love the hairdo!

Each little critter is presented with step-by-step instructions with plenty of picture tutorials for difficult portions.

Picture tutorial shows how to add the hair to Alvin.

All the patterns use basic amigurumi stitches, so lots of single crochet. None of the patterns seem too difficult so that even a novice at amigurumi could make these. They are all well thought out and just plain cute!

Of course, the owl is one of my favorites.

I love that each little guy gets his own cartoon version of itself in the material section.

Oswald wants you to know that he is “2 stars” difficult.

There are so many cute critters I can’t pick just one favorite.

So adorable!

50% Off A New Pattern Perfect for Summer Plus Two New Craftsy Crochet Kits Available


Ocean City Flip Flops

Get ready for the warmer weather with these super comfy crochet flip flops.

You have two options for construction. Either use a strong glue (like E6000) to stiffen the double sole so you can wear them around the house. Or, make one sole and glue that to a pair of old flip flops (with the original straps removed) to wear outside.

Either way, they will be way more comfortable than those hard plastic straps you’re used to.

50% Off This Week Only


Use promo code: flipflop during checkout to receive discount. Good on all websites listed below (except Craftsy, which does not have promo codes so the price reflects discount).*

*Offer good until Sunday, April 16th, 2017 midnight Pacific time.
