Disney Crochet Kits

I love yarn crafts: knitting, crocheting, weaving, I love it all. So when I discovered a few new character kits, I knew I had to try them out.

The first kit I found was at Sam's Club.  Disney Classic Crochet by Megan Kreiner includes a book with easy to follow instructions to create 12 favorite Disney characters: Mickey and Minnie, Donald and Daisy, Goofy, Pluto, Chip and Dale, Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket, Bambi, and Lady. There's also enough yarn to make Mickey and Donald, along with felt, a crochet hook, a needle, embroidery thread, and even stuffing. This kit was available for a very reasonable $13. Megan Kreiner has a Winnie the Pooh kit as well, and even a free pattern on her website to make Gus Gus from Cinderella.

The second kit came from Costco. Star Wars Crochet by Lucy Collin includes a book with instructions for creating 12 amigurumi characters: Yoda, Leia, Luke, Han, Chewie, R2-D2, C-3PO, Wicket, Jabba the Hutt, Darth Vader, Bona Fett, and a Stormtrooper. All of the yarn, a crochet hook, a needle, stuffing, and safety eyes needed to create Yoda and a Stormtrooper are included in the kit (however, I wouldn't recommend using the safety eyes as the safety washers break when used.) I made a tiny Yoda. He's quite cute. The directions were easy to follow and it didn't take long to go from start to finish. This kit was also $12. Lucy Collin has other Star Wars patterns for sale on her website as well as several free patterns for cute little critters.
