Ohayou! Today marks the release of my book, Hello Kitty Crochet! Woohoo!

I would like to give myself a huge pat on the back for surviving the wait…and to you too, if I could!

Please allow me to say a big “THANK YOU VERY MUCH” (本当にありがとうございました) for all your love, patience and support — I couldn’t have done it without your constant encouragement and sweet words, raring me on to continue crocheting even through the most impossible of days.

As a tribute to this very special day, I would like to announce an exclusive…



What do you have to do?

1) Go to a bookstore anywhere in the United States.

2) Snap a picture of yourself posing with the Hello Kitty Crochet books on display in-store.

3) E-mail the picture over to me at amigurumei[@]gmail[dot]com


The prize?

A surprise amiguruMEI handmade crochet doll sent to your doorstep!


Okay, so how to win?

1) Be the first three to send in a clear and pretty picture of the above. Yes, three lucky winners!

2) Be my Twitter follower @amigurumei and fellow Pinterest pinner @amigurumei or Mei Li Lee.

3) Help spread the word!


And if you don’t win…

I’ll still share your pictures on my blog and give you a nice, neat shoutout for your kind effort!


Contest deadline: 

Oct 1, 2014.


Questions, questions

1. Don’t worry! Photos can be from your phone, tablet or camera. I would prefer clear, sharp pictures but if shaky hands are your thing, send them over anyway!

2. Eligible participants can be from anywhere around the world. If you can’t be in the United States for now, why not get a friend from there to snap a picture for you?

3. Availability of the book — For now, my publishers at Quirk Books only have word that the book will be available in the United States bookstores. For my United Kingdom friends, the books will arrive in-store Oct 9. Yay!

4. For fellow Hello Kitty Crochet fans outside of the United States, please bear with us as we wait for upcoming news on the availability of the book elsewhere. In the mean-time, you can still order online via the book cover link on the top right sidebar of this page. For e-books, you can try here.

Best wishes!



P/S And now I leave you with a fancy-schmancy photo taken by my good friend @peyday 🙂

  1. I’d really like to participate but I don’t live in the U.S. and I don’t know anyone there. Why does it need to be in the U.S.? 😦 I can assure you that we have Hello Kitty in our bookstores as well and she looks the same!

    1. Hi there Shia! I understand your frustrations! I wish I could have control of where the books are available but I have to leave it in the hands of my publishers and Sanrio for now. Rest assured I’m definitely working hard at getting the books all around the world as everyone hopes. If you do see Hello Kitty Crochet books in any of the bookstores around you, let me know!

  2. oh this sounds like such fun!! I would love to participate, but I do not have a bookstore in my city. I pre ordered my book from Amazon 🙂 So hopefully I will have it by this weekend ( Hopefully sooner)!! maybe just maybe one store here will get the book.


  3. So, the contest is for the United States Only?

    I pre ordered the book on the 31th July but I will have to wait before I can have it (I live in Belgium).

    The book is already out of stock on

    I can not wait to have it on my hands :).

    1. Hi Kaori!
      The contest is open to anyone from around the world, but since the book is now only available in the bookstores in the US and Canada, the contest will focus on those two places for now 🙂 if there’s anywhere else that carries my book, you’re more than welcome to send over a pic too!

  4. Konnichiwa!!! I just got my book from Amazon. Yea!!! (I pre-ordered your book since April). It was well worth the wait. I love love love your book. I cannot wait to crochet Hello Kitty and all her tomodachis! I love Hello Kitty!

    I love to crochet amigurumi. Finally a licensed book that Hello Kitty looks like Hello Kitty, ne!!!

    Thank you (Doomo arigatoo gozaimashita!!). I appreciate all your talent and hard work putting this book together.

    In the back of your book it states you can download more patterns and watch video of you. I couldn’t find the link.

    Take care, diane

    1. Hey Diane!
      Thank you so much for buying my book!

      We haven’t yet started on sharing extra patterns and videos. Will definitely announce them on my blog when that happens!


  5. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.

    I must say you have done a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads super
    quick for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!

  6. Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make
    my blog shine. Please let me know where you got
    your theme. Thanks a lot
