I know the people that have seen the book have already put their requests in. Brilliant book!!! A Huge hit in our household! * Crochet Addict UK * July 2015 Once Upon A Time in Crochet is an adorable collection of crochet amigurumi projects from those timeless fairytales that we all know and love. I had initially been eyeing up this book because I'd always said that when I have kids I would want a fairytale themed nursery (although I' not going to need that for about a decade I'm hoping!) As a literature lover all things that amalgamate my two loves, reading and crafts, always peaks my interest and this one certainly didn't disappoint! The moment I first picked it up and started flicking through it made me want to pick up my hook and get started! As you can see from the contents page, characters from 11 classic fairytales are represented in the book. This range not only includes the main character of the story, but often their friends, foes and additional props that makes this one jam-packed book! Overall it covers instructions for thirty characters and many more extras which makes it exceptional value for money.

Any of these story-themed toys would make a great treat for a child. Designs range from Goldilocks and the three bears to dashing Puss in boots, Rapunzel and her tower, oh-so-cute ugly ducklings and out favourite a sweet princess complete with a mattress, blankets and tine pea! There are 11 fairytale sets in total, enough to fill a whole chest of storytime toys. We particularly like all the little design details, such as Goldilocks' curly blonde hair and Snow Whites tiny red apple. This book assumes experience with the basic crochet stitches, but includes clear photo guides to amigurumi techniques such as attaching parts together, stuffing evenly, adding safety eyes and creating different hairstyles. Amigurumi are quick to hook and perfect for using up odds and ends of yarn, so set aside a few hours and fall in love with fairytales again. * Inside Crochet * May 2015 Children love fairy stories - whether it's piles of Ladybird books by the bed or old Disney cartoons on YouTube, young children still delight in tales of the big bad wolf, or scare themselves with stories of Hansel and Gretel lost in the woods. You can bring their stories to life with these adorable amigurumi patterns by Inside Crochet designer Lynne Rowe (www.thewoolnest.blogspot.co.uk). Made using a selection of DMC natural fibre yarns, any of these story-themed toys would make a great treat for a child.

Magic up a host of little figures and let them be enjoyed as presents or props in little re-enactments for fun family entertainment. With easy-to-follow patterns plus quotes to tell the stories, this book is right up our bread-crumbed street. Out favourite has to be Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. * Make it Today * May 2015 You'll know Goldilocks, Rapunzel, the Three Little Pigs and Puss in Boots. But you might not know amigurumi. It's the Japanese art of crocheting animals and dolls with big, cute, loveable faces. From the frog prince with a forlorn look on his face to the curly-haired princess with her giant pea and the ugly ducking who isn't really very ugly at all, it's harder to turn the pages of this book without sawing 'Awww, adorable!' than it is to eat a doughnut without licking your lips. The patterns assume a certain amount of knowledge, so they're probably best tackled if you have some experience in crochet But they're off-the-scale engaging and gorgeous. * Woman's Weekly * This book is absolutely adorable, illustrating how to create cute amigurumi style crochet creatures with easy-to-follow patterns that are suitable for crocheters of all abilities. Great fun and a delight! * Hot Brands, Cool Places *
