- This tutorial is helpful, fun, & inspiring for all ages and skill levels. Review by Megz
This DVD has something (or many somethings) to teach everyone whether you are a super novice who might be wondering what that silly hook looking thing is or a seasoned crocheter who “knows it all.”
Brenda discusses different types of tools and how to select the right type for your project, how to determine which materials are best, the different effects your color choices will have, and what to look for when making your selections. She also talks about edging, finishing details, basic sewing, assembly methods, and so much more! Her discussion of each step is enhanced by her explanation/demonstration of why each technique is useful and how the project might look different if the technique is not used.
I have been crocheting for many years and am blown away by some of the techniques Brenda teaches in this video. They made sense, but I would never have come up with them on my own. Her descriptions and demonstrations are easy to understand and Brenda’s techniques give her projects that extra attention to detail needed to makes them look amazing. I find myself wondering where this tutorial has been all my life and how I possibly muddled through the faces of my poor little amigurumi without it.
Thanks to Brenda KB Anderson my future Amigurumi will only look creepy when I intend to make them scary and not by default. This DVD is a great resource to have and it’s entertaining too. I am excited to have it in my craft collection and look forward to working along with parts of the video as the techniques come up in my projects.
