Say konnichiwa to Hello Kitty & her friends! Just in time for the 40th anniversary of Hello Kitty, Hello Kitty Crochet features all our favorite Sanrio friends in the form of dolls you make yourself. This fabulous book is written by Mei Li Lee, a lifelong lover of Japanese pop culture. Mei Li has been sharing her Japanese-inspired crafts on her blog since 2012. Her blog is full of eye candy, but also important & helpful craft tips.
Full disclosure - I do not know how to crochet, or knit for that matter. However, I do love Hello Kitty & her friends and if anything was going to convince me to learn, it would be this terrific book! The book is jam packed with adorable Amigurumi patterns. Amigurumi refers to knitted or crocheted stuffed dolls. It's definitely an art that requires patience & practice, but it's worth it when you end up with the cutest Hello Kitty ever crafted!
