By MidwestMom VINE VOICE on September 19, 2008
Format: Paperback
This is a great pattern leaflet by Leisure Arts and Amy Gaines. The patterns, are fun, creative, and easy to make. I have so far made two of the patterns, and found the directions to be very clear and easy to follow, no errors, and consistent results. Large full color photographs, and templates included for all felt pieces.

My only "complaint" is that there are only 8 patterns. And two of them are so similar (the two bears--one is about an inch larger with a different outfit) that it almost difficult to count them as two separate distinct patterns. It is a bit difficult to justify the regular price when you can buy Ana Paula Rimoli's "Amigurumi World" book for just about $2-3 more (Amazon price) and receive about 3 times the amount of patterns.

However, I purchased this leaflet for 40% off with a coupon at Michaels, and this leaflet has been well worth the discounted price. I hope that Amy Gaines (who sells patterns on etsy) will publish more of her patterns in a leaflet or book form.

Very well done!!! Highly Recommended!

I am a fan of Amy's so it's no surprise that I love this book also. The animals are such a great size, small enough to be cute but large enough to handle making without hand cramps!! All made with easily found yarn and a simple crochet hook. Directions are outstanding! Thanks, Amy!!! GREAT book!!! Love it!!!!

I'm fairly new to this art and had read through other reviews that this was a decent book for beginners. Not only was that reviewer wrong, but there are no helpful pictures/images that break down the steps-it's all based on knowledge you are supposed to know already...

The completed image of each creature is used to be a "guide." Needless to say, it would have been a great book if it had a little more detail with images.

True to its word, this booklet is full of cute animals. The patterns are well-written and pretty easy. I'm not all that experienced in the art of crochet, but I've found this book to be good for beginners (although no, it won't teach you how to crochet any stitches at all, which is what I'm assuming the negative reviewers were looking for), and my projects turn out looking pretty much like the pictures do.

For the price, though, there aren't very many patterns, and as another reviewer noted, the two bear patterns are quite similar. If you can find this for a good sale price, take it. Otherwise, other pattern books (as opposed to this pamphlet) would provide you with more value.

This a great book for crocheters. The animals are just adorable and the character description added for each one is hysterical. It really adds to their personalities. I can hardly wait to make each and every one for my grandchild!

Cannot wait to make them all. Some are a challenge. But cute wins over. Stick to the instructions and try not to recreate the wheel. Your sanity will thank you. Plus you get some awfully cute critters out of it.
