Magical Amigurumi Toys Book Review and Giveaway!

When I was asked if I would be interested in doing a book review for the new amigurumi book Magical Amigurumi Toys by Mar-Liis Lille, I immediately said yes because it looked like it was packed with super cute patterns! I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy and start flipping through it!
 Well, I wasn't disappointed when it arrived in my mailbox …..it is a wonderful pattern book that has a great selection of cool amigurumi patterns! Look at how cute these are....
It was really hard choosing which patterns to make from this book, but I finally decided to make the Tummy Teddy, here he is! 
This pattern was easy to follow, with great pictures and instructions. This book would also be great for beginners, because it offers some smaller patterns too! 
And one more thing, I have to say I really like the actual size of this book, it's nice that it's hard cover but also that it's smaller so it fits nicely in my project bag!
**GIVEAWAY!**
Now, as a special treat one lucky person will win their very own copy of Magical Amigurumi Toys, plus I have included some crocheting supplies from my stash, a crochet hook, and two skeins of yarn! 
To enter head on over to my Instgram Page for full details! This is open to everyone in Canada and the USA. The winner will be announced on June 17th, 2016. Good luck everyone!! 

You can get your very own copy of "Magical Amigurumi Toys", it's available here.....
