Two NEW Crochet Pattern Books From Leisure Arts: ‘Rugs For Kids’ and ‘Kids Dress Up’

Two of the most popular crafting trends – fun bedroom rugs for kids’ rooms and children’s cosplay – are covered in two new terrific crochet pattern books from Leisure Arts:

Kids rugs are so popular this year, so it’s no wonder that we’re seeing fun collections. Rugs make a very unique gift, for newborns all the way to teens … plus you get to challenge your skills! I say crochet a rug for a favorite kid soon, you’ll be a hero!

The novelty designs in Rugs for Kids from Leisure Arts can help children step into imaginary worlds where creativity is key. Great for play areas and bedrooms, six fun designs by Kristi Simpson include cow, owl, penguin, racetrack, rocket, and unicorn. Comes in paperback and digital versions!

Cosplay is everywhere and it’s not just for Halloween! As the parent of a ten-year-old, I can tell you that kids love to dress up all the time … whether it’s a trip to the grocery story or a night out to an anticipated movie, kids are doing cosplay year-round!

Kids can be little monsters, or super heroes, princesses, animals or ballerinas when they slip on the playful costume pieces in the crochet collection! Comes in paperback and digital versions!
