About the Author

Nelly Pailloux is a keen craftswoman, finding inspiration for her creations in cookbooks, children's illustrations, and the media. She lives in the English countryside.

More About the Author

I am French, born and raised in Paris. I've lived in the UK on various occasions, first as an au pair and finally settling in Kent 6 years ago with my partner.

My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was twelve during the summer holidays. Since then, I have always carried a pair of crochet hooks with me. I was always able to start a project but never finished one and that was before I discovered the Amigurumi trend 3 years ago.

I started by making petite dolls for friends, then writing my own patterns which led to my online shop, La Fée Crochette. Consequently, I was contacted by a publisher and Crobots was born.

I have always enjoyed making things and I find that with Amigurumi I can really express my creativity and it is a fresh approach to crochet. It only takes odd bits of yarn and some stuffing, and there you go, in one afternoon you have created something special with lots of personality.

I also like working with paper, fabric, clay, buttons, sequins. I also recently started to work with felt and some mascot concepts were given to a publisher, which led to my second book, Felties.

When I'm not crocheting or hand sewing... I'm knitting! I also love running, cooking, watching animés and horror movies (which quite doesn't go with making cute little things!!).

Format: Paperback
This is my third Amigurumi book, the first was Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet, and the second was Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots, and More!. I find this to be a happy middle between the two. The first has incredibly easy instructions, and the latter is fairly complicated in pattern reading, and the addition of eyes/accessories (for me). This is pretty easy instructions, and is less complicated with the accessories you add on after you've crocheted the pieces. I would argue with some of the author's notes on difficulty (they're rated from easiest to most difficult), but that is probably more a matter of personal taste. Not a GREAT book for a beginner, but if you are dying to make these as your first projects, you could get by alright. Lots of accessories to buy to make these patterns as shown, also. They're still dead cute, though!

I have to say, this is the best Amigurumi book that I've come across as of yet! The book is VERY well laid-out. From beginner to veteran crocheter, this book makes it easy. All of the information that you need is laid out clearly, from what materials to buy to the stitches that you'll need to know, including great, clear illustrations on how to do those stitches. I love Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots, and More! and its clever, off-the-beaten-path patterns, but that book is lacking the initial basic information that this book lays out clearly and simply for the reader. With "Crobots", you CAN just pick this book up, head to the craft section of your local department or art supply store, stock your basket with yarn and needles, and go get started! "Creepy Cute Crochet" didn't make it quite that easy.

"Crobots" has absolutely adorable patterns, but they're not child-friendly. I love the way that screws, grommets, pin backs, snaps, and other notions are utilized to add a more authentic feel to the crocheted robots that you're taught to make here, but their presence makes them child-unfriendly. As long as you keep that in mind, or opt for other, safer substitutions, I can't see anyone not deeply enjoying the patterns and designs in this book.

I can't WAIT to complete my first Crobot!

I want to say right off these crobots are not for kids. If I were to make them for a child, I would make sure I didn't use any beads or buttons or anything else that could possibly become loose from the crobot. Those cute little decorations are definitely a choking hazard.

The projects are cute and relatively easy to make, the photographs are cute as well. But sometimes the directions seem a bit off - why would you make 4 legs for a crobot that isn't supposed to be four legged? And 2 bodies? Weird. Plus sometimes if you follow the directions exactly, you will get lost. I've been crocheting a long time, so I was able to work it out but for a beginner it may cause a lot of problems.
I would be happier to recommend this book if the directions were better edited. So I recommend it with the warning that you probably puzzle your way out of a pattern. If you can deal with that going into it, you will be better prepared than I was.

Format: Paperback
Although Nelly's designs are inventive and original, shodding editing results in patterns with errors such as the Zombiebot that requires instructs you to make two heads, two bodies and four arms and legs. This book seems as if it was rushed passed the editor to be sold.

In addition, please disregard the first 9 "customer photos" as those are in fact, characters exactly out of the book used for photography. I don't believe they adequately show customer results; rather author results with the book.

Please note, as the author states - these robots are not child friendly and all safety caution should be taken before giving them to small children as they contain loose screws, nails and pins.

I think that this book is excellent. I'm new to the whole amigurumi craft, but the projects in this book are adorable! The instructions are quite clear and easy to follow. I would recommend it to anyone. There are instructions for each step, as well as instructions on how to get started crocheting, even if you have never done it before.

I bought Crobots after finding author Nelly Pailloux's web site, La Fee Crochette. Her work is lovely and the robot patterns are quite nice. My only concern is that I need a crochet tutorial every time I pick up my hook and the explanations here were a little vague. Work wise, however, this book is worth buying because of the fun patterns.

My son had a robot themed birthday party and I made a few crobots as prizes. They were quite popular!

This was a cute book with nice amigurumi robot instructions. I liked the illustrations, they helped a lot when you were doing amigurumi robots. I would recommend this to all of you who like to do crafting.
I only gave 4 stars because all the little parts of the robots were kind of hard to attach and also I was a bit concerned if these amigurumi robots will be handled by kids (too many tiny parts to come off). I just like to do these as a decorations.
