Come March, it’ll be two years since amiguruMEI first made its appearance in the blogosphere!
Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone for being so patient. It’s been a while since I last updated my posts but I’ve still been receiving encouraging comments from my fellow amigurumi lovers and crafters!
2013 was an exciting year for amiguruMEI – I took on several new projects and collaborations and that took up a lot of time. Hopefully, in the coming months, I will be able to share even more exciting news with everyone (and that includes free patterns, of course).
Secondly, let me share with you Mei-chan’s new look. For a long time now, I’ve been wanting to give her a new hat and so here it is! I must admit though that she doesn’t look too different, but it’s a good change nonetheless. Mei-chan, contrary to popular belief, isn’t a bear or a bunny. She is a cute little pink fox (though no one could ever say that they’ve seen her real ears) who is still a big fan of Totoro and anything Studio Ghibli-related.
In the following picture, we have Mei-chan and an image from her past – the beautiful crochet hook pouch was made by a dear friend of mine, Lynn, who had gone on a sewing frenzy not too long ago.
Hey there everyone!
Please excuse us for the longest absence ever — something super-exciting is currently in the works, and that’s taking up almost all of our time (I promise to share more when I can).
By the way, have you met Satsuki-chan? She shares the same birthday as I do, and is a little darling inspired by a Hersberry illustration.
She is never without her cobalt-blue bag and cool red boots.
Her favourite pastime? Splashing about in rainwater puddles. But if that’s not an option, well, staying indoors is fine too, but ONLY if there’s a Japanese handicraft book or two to be read.
Mei-chan is out for a walk.
Pippi-chan is bored.
Guess what happens next – presenting an original amiguruMEI stop-motion adventure!

Merron-chan is four and loves the colour green.
While she’s too young to know anything about saving the environment or things like recycling just yet, she has a heart of gold, and is a cheerful girl of sorts, always on the lookout for sunbeams and white clouds.
She has yet to see a forest, or a tree house for that matter.
Just what kind of grown-up would she grow up to be?
