AmiguruME cover

You can crochet animals, food, and practically anything you can think of as amigurumis, but have you ever thought of crocheting an amigurumi version of Mr. T or Bob Dylan?

We’ve teamed up with Lark Crafts and Allison Hoffman to bring you a great giveaway. AmiguruMe is all about taking amigurumi to the next level and creating mini-celebrities or even a mini version of yourself! The book goes through techniques on how to customize your doll from skin tone to facial shapes to the clothes so you’ll have an amigurumi that is right for you.

One lucky winner will receive a copy of the book, as well as their own amigurumi of Frida Kahlo!

*Contest ends December 12th.
