The Crochet Cafe: Recipes for Amigurumi Crochet Patterns by Lauren Espy is a book I picked up from Amazon. It came up as a top suggestion when I was purchasing some shoes on Amazon.
The entire book resembles a recipe book because the main focus is food amigurumi. I don’t know if you realize but food-based items like this, including farmer’s market types of projects, are in strong trend at this time.
I am so beyond impressed with the level of detail and step-by-step photography and the patterns are in standard amigurumi format which makes it easy to follow. From an English muffin with egg, ham and cheese to a picnic day with hotdogs with condiments.
The stitchwork has texture and a really excellent 3D approach where the project is believable, all the way around it. There is so many examples of food in this book generous book and I felt the price was bang on, maybe even a little too cheap for what is offered.
From breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner and desserts, these are all high in fibre but calorie-free (wink wink). From child-play to decor items for you to enjoy.
I think you would seriously love this book. From the stack of pancakes with a splash of syrup! It’s inspirational and best yet if you purchase it, you are supporting this designer’s creativity as it seems she has a lot of ideas and brave enough to publish a fabulous book to boot!
