I have good news everyone!

Three of amiguruMEI’s patterns can now be found in Hand Made Toys! (The cover below should give you a hint as to which ones!)

Hand Made Toys by Future Publishing

Hand Made Toys is a special publication brought to you by the brilliant team behind Future publishing, the publishers of craft wonders Mollie Makes and Simply Crochet magazine. It’s packed with 40 super-cute toy designs that you can crochet, knit or sew together on your own.

The bookazine will be going on sale Thursday, May 8 (tomorrow!), and will be available worldwide by mail order from My Favourite Magazines. It will also be sold in WH Smith stores and leading newsagents in the UK, and in Barnes & Noble stores in the USA.

I’ve also been told that the Apple Newsstand will feature a digital version for the iPad — simply go HERE to download the free Simply Crochet container app, and the digital version of Hand Made Toys will be available there.

And now, for the big reveal: Hand Made Toys features not only our ever-popular Chiyo-chan and Tako-Yaki bear brothers patterns, but also the Little Red & Baby Wolf amigurumi pattern that everyone has been asking about! (The fairytale-ish pattern was earlier featured in a special booklet attached to Simply Crochet Issue 10, which has since been sold out.)

Here’s a glimpse of the amiguruMEI pattern pages in Hand Made Toys:

I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of Hand Made Toys for sure!

If you do want to know amiguruMEI a little more, go grab a copy because we have a special page dedicated to answering some personal questions about the whole business with amigurumi and how I first fell in love with the craft.

Check out the picture below for a sneak peek!


We’re super excited about this and I hope you are too! Please grab yourself a copy (or two) of Hand Made Toys before it’s all sold out!
