I'm pretty sure it was white background with a few knitted (perhaps also crochet) toys in front. I want to say it was a well known publisher, like Woman's Day or something, but I'm not sure if I'm just imagining it.

It's kind of pricey, but you've probably noticed that :o) Also try eBay.

Well, IMO for something you'd use over and over it's not that bad. I'd get a lot of enjoyment out of just looking at it. I've never done eBay.
