I activated my King County library card last night and went on a hunt for amigurumi books . During the hunt I realized I needed some placemats for my new Ikea table, so why not make my own?
I am in love with how silly this book is. They present each pattern with gorgeous pictures of the amis and put a ridiculous quote like “What is Citron Puppy thinking of? Only he knows…” or “Hi! I am sheep and I have my own planet”…Adorable. 🙂 What I like the most about this book is the graphical way in which the pattern is written. It makes it a lot easier for me to remember. I might purchase this book for myself.
I’ve seen amis from this book SOOOOOO much I didnt even want to check it out. But Tamie Snow included a very cute owl pattern I really want to make. He will keep me company in my office, yes, he will.
This book is really neat! I didnt know there was so much to the art of table toppers. :-0 They tell you what the right proportions of table runners are, how to make a placemat look better with your dishes, etc. etc. I’m making a set of four placemants following the directions from here.
Eh…It’s ok. I was a little overwhelmed with how many different things they have here and yet, I didnt really find anything that interested me. It seems the pictures are all stills from their show, so the book has ‘ok’ pictures. They do talk a lot about the importance of knowing how to choose fabrics when decorating, so I liked that.
