AmiguruME: A Guest Post by Rapunzel

Hi! As you’ve probably guessed, it’s Rapunzel again. A quick reminder that I’m doing some guest posts while Cogaroo is away.

Today I wanted to talk about the book “AmiguruME” by Allison Hoffman. It’s the book that I was made from, so naturally it’s very important to me. 🙂 Cogaroo really likes this book too, and she gives it her highest recommendations and five stars: ✩✩✩✩✩.


The great thing about AmiguruME is you can make anybody you want – there are a bunch of famous people in the book (I especially like the crochet version of Willie Nelson), but you can also crochet your coworkers, favorite book or movie characters, or yourself. Before she made me, Cogaroo crocheted an Elsa from this book – she’s in the picture above.

Cogaroo’s favorite princess is Rapunzel, so next she crocheted me!


Cogaroo said it was fun to modify the patterns and crochet different Disney characters. 🙂 When I presented this post idea to her, she suggested that I do some side-by-side pictures of Elsa and me. I thought that would be sort of narcissistic, but she thought you might find it interesting. So…okay…here we go! You can click to enlarge any of these pictures.

Elsa has the “Short and Wide” female head and I have the “Tall and Skinny” version. That was possibly the strangest sentence I’ve ever written!

I win the “Longest Hair” contest; Elsa wins the “Most Dramatic Cape” and “Highest Heels” contest.

Elsa went to a new home after these pictures were taken. I’m happy for her, but I do miss her. 😥 Hopefully Cogaroo will crochet me another friend soon!

To finish up, here’s one of my favorite pictures from my photo shoot (I included this in another post too, because I like it):


Those are Rapunzel tomatoes that I’m posing with. See any similarities? 😉

Well, this is the last you’ll hear from me for a while. Cogaroo’s coming home and she’ll be posting again soon. Like I said, I still might post in the future though…if I can convince her to let me!

It’s been a pleasure talking to you all, and I really hope you liked my posts. 🙂

Peace, love, and pogo sticks,

✿ Rapunzel ✿

    Very interesting! With the book, do they give you patterns for different heads and bodies, and you put them together to make a doll? Because that sounds cool! ? And the Rapunzel tomatoes ???

      Hi filliefanatic! Yes, it’s like a choose-your-own-adventure pattern book – there are lots of different patterns for heads, bodies, feet, clothes, etc. It’s very cool! I’m glad you like the Rapunzel tomatoes, hehe. 😉
