Once Upon A Time in Crochet is an adorable collection of crochet amigurumi projects from those timeless fairytales that we all know and love. I had initially been eyeing up this book because Id always said that when I have kids I would want a fairytale themed nursery (although I not going to need that for about a decade Im hoping!) As a literature lover all things that amalgamate my two loves, reading and crafts, always peaks my interest and this one certainly didnt disappoint! The moment I first picked it up and started flicking through it made me want to pick up my hook and get started! As you can see from the contents page, characters from 11 classic fairytales are represented in the book. This range not only includes the main character of the story, but often their friends, foes and additional props that makes this one jam-packed book! Overall it covers instructions for thirty characters and many more extras which makes it exceptional value for money.

You'll know Goldilocks, Rapunzel, the Three Little Pigs and Puss in Boots. But you might not know amigurumi. It's the Japanese art of crocheting animals and dolls with big, cute, loveable faces. From the frog prince with a forlorn look on his face to the curly-haired princess with her giant pea and the ugly ducking who isn't really very ugly at all, it's harder to turn the pages of this book without sawing 'Awww, adorable!' than it is to eat a doughnut without licking your lips. The patterns assume a certain amount of knowledge, so they're probably best tackled if you have some experience in crochet But they're off-the-scale engaging and gorgeous.
