Crochet Cute Critters Amigurumi Review & Giveaway

I recently had the opportunity to review Repeat Crafters amazing new book, “Crochet Cute Critters: 26 Easy Amigurumi Patterns“. The book is set to release on August 20th, but you can pre-order it now. Upon reviewing the book, my first thought was, “these designs are all so dang cute!”

But then, I opened the book and began to thumb through the first pages. Sarah went above and beyond and included written and photo tutorials for every step of amigurumi. Including the basics like a types of hooks, yarn recommendations, magic circle (which those that know me, know this is always a struggle for me), sewing the different pieces together, how to add eyes, and so much more. The book really has a great explanation for beginners as well as those that are experienced making amigurumi.

The Crochet Cute Critters

After the first 23 detailed pages of instructions, the cuteness really begins. Sarah features 26 animals that correspond to the 26 letters of the alphabet: Alex the Alligator, Benny the Bear, Callie the Cat, and so on. All the animal designs are a little different fun have a fun personality with their design. Some of my favorites are: Alex the Alligator, Xavier the Xray Fish, and Yoland the Yak.

Must Have Newborn Photo Prop Bundle

As we celebrate babies during the month of July, I have been sharing bundles of designs geared towards newborn photo shoots. Today, I am sharing the “Must Have’s”…

In the Must Have Newborn props bundle you will receive all 7 of the patterns shown above for a huge discount of only $10 (value of $28.50). See how you can get this great value below, after viewing each pattern up and close.

Included in the Must Have Newborn Photo Prop Bundle are:

The Basic Bonnet, is just as it ‘s called. It’s Basic. It’s Classic. It’s Adorable. It’s a Must Have.

A Swaddle Pod is another classic newborn prop, bundling the new baby in a cocoon like bundle. This pattern has a beautiful chevron design, make it is multiple colors to enhance the striping or make it solid for a less bold look.

The cabled bucket wrap is a unique prop that softens up any photo shoot. Adding texture and softness to any session is always a welcome treat.

We all know that the precious new life is treated like the prince & princess they are in our families. So embrace that with the Ribbon & Pearls Crown. This pattern comes in sizes from newborn up through child.

The most basic prop and one of my more popular request is the Diaper Cover. This pattern features an easy one button closure that wraps around the babies waist preventing too much gap and bulkiness.

The Twin Nesting Bowl is another great layering photo prop. The bowl is designed to nestle twins into it but is just as adorable with one baby.

And the final pattern is the Long Tail Pixie Hat! This design is another classic and I love making them. Add an XLarge Pom or a simple Flower at the tip for the perfect whimsical touch.

Newborn Animal Photo Prop Bundle

Baby Month continues and I am flashing back to the adorable animal photo props. These darling crochet animals make some of the cutest newborn photos. Just think of the possibilities with these designs especially with Halloween just around the corner…

In the Newborn Animal Photo Prop Bundle you will receive all 7 of the animal props shown at a huge discounted price of only $10.

Included in the Newborn Animal Prop Bundle are:

The first design in this bundle that I designed, and the most popular over the years is the turtle prop. The cute, simple hat can be used anytime but couple it with the darling turtle shell and it melts your heart.

The Snail was my next design and adore how cute the photos can out with this one. I have made over 100 of these over the years in so many cute color combinations and each one seems to be my “new favorite”!

Bumble Bees were buzzing around for a bit too, how cute are these? I still cannot decide if I like the solid or striped hat, so usually ended up making both.

My Lady Bug Prop features the same hat as the bumble bee but the dotted cape makes it so cute. It can also be used as a cute Love Bug for Valentine’s day.

The Dinosaur can also be interchanged as a Dragon and again can be made is any color combination you can imagine.

The analogy of the butterfly, “newlife” is beautiful for newborns.

And lastly, included in the bundle is another very popular animal design, the fox! Seriously, we all love foxes, so baby foxes are undeniably too cute.
