Our Favorites

My daughter’s (she is 9) favorite pattern is the Mermaid Tail, although if you had asked her a few years ago I am certain it would have been the Princess Dress! My son’s favorite pattern (he is 7) is the Pizza Slice. He thinks it is awesome that you could snuggle into a slice of pizza! My favorite design is the Mermaid Tail and I think it will work up quickly!

  1. Wow, I love these patterns because they are perfect for my granddaughters ages 4 and 7. They would love the mermaid tail snuggle sacks and the pizza. Great fun to make for children and they look like a quick make!

  2. Wonderful patterns and I just adore that princess dress. Great review. I love how you always indicate the level on each pattern.

  3. I hope I can find a copy of this. There are couple I would like to make. They sound like they will not be hard to figure out!

  4. Oh I wish I had found this sooner to have entered, but greats to the winner. Where can I buy this book?

  5. These look like do much fun to make and us! Thank you for a wonderful review.

  6. Love the Mermaid Tail & Pizza snuggies!! Would make for the Grankiddo’s!! lol Thanks for the review 🙂

  7. I’m embarrassed that I just asked on a recent post for you to review this book, when I obviously read this review just a few months ago. So I’ll just say what I said earlier on this post. I’d love to see you review the thread Christmas ornaments or thread jewelry books.

  8. I so want to try making one of these snuggies, but I’m worried that. It exceeds my skill level.

  9. Lots of variety here for me to make all 13 of my grand children happy 😀

  10. Love these Snuggies. Thinking they might be a good idea for children with special needs – something for them to cuddle into.

  11. Super cute patterns. Thanks for sharing the yarn recommendations also.

  12. My daughters have already pestered me about getting them a snuggle sack, so making them each one would definitely be the better option.

  13. My granddaughters have seen similar crocheted mermaid tails and have been in my ear for the last 4 month’s about making them one. This is something I’d definitely love to have in my library!

  14. Thank you. Wish I saw this earlier for grandies Christmas…. Cooler than same ol mermaid‼️‼️

  15. I’d love for you to review “Fun Animal Pillows” next. Those blankets look so cozy!
