If you’re an amigurumi fan and would love to review Hello Kitty Crochet on your blog, website and magazine, please do speak to Eric Smith, the Marketing & Social Media Manager at Quirk Books (eric@quirkbooks.com). Or you can drop me a line and I’ll make sure the message gets through to the fun team at Quirk 🙂


Here’s a sneak peek at what we did while working on the book. We bought a couple of Japanese Hello Kitty reads to help with the designing of the Sanrio bunch.

Here’s Purin the custard-loving pup. Can you guess yet what other characters will make an appearance in Hello Kitty Crochet?


Mei-Chan’s debut

Mei-Chan’s debut

If Meimoirs were given a chance to wander in the realms of amigurumi, she would be Mei-chan – all fluffed up for some kawaii fun!

Mei-chan is a marshmallow-pink fuzzy fox. On her head is none other than a grey fuwa fuwa (fluffy) Totoro hat!

Totoro is a large forest creature that live on acorns and plays the ocarina on moonlit nights. The character first appeared in My Neighbour Totoro, a delightful 1988 anime by Japanese manga artist and acclaimed filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, who co-founded the animation powerhouse, Studio Ghibli.

Mei-Chan is the first of many in amiguruMEI’s Makura Atama (Pillow Head) series. She snacks on mochi and cream puffs, and is known to be a fan of boba tea.
