Book Description

14 Feb 2013
This wonderful collection of handmade toys will delight children both young and old. The 25 projects, designed by expert craftsman Rob Merrett, take their inspiration from traditional playthings, including dolls, animals and more. Begin with Baby's First Soft Toy - delightful gifts for newborns designed in soft colours and gentle prints. Nursery Novelties is next, with easy patchwork and applique embellishments, followed by Activity Toys, where clever designs will stimulate young children's minds. Creature Comforts has adorable animals that are perfect for little ones in a range of pretty fabrics. Finally, Divine Dollies is packed with trendy, vintage-looking rag dolls that you will love to make. Rob also develops the concept of 'Kids Forever', where designs should appeal not just to children, but also to adults who will appreciate his stylish, retro approach. Each toy comes with clear, step-by-step text and beautiful photography and artworks that will guide even a novice stitcher, helping them to produce gorgeous gifts with a charming, handcrafted feel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Also known as Sew It, Stuff It 27 Feb 2013
By Caillie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book, which I was pleased to see after loving Rob Merrett's Sew It, Stuff It. However, this is the same book - the cover is the only difference. This is the third book this has happened to me! So beware - buy one or the other, but not both!

Not quite what I expected. I love the cat with the fish, though, that would have a five star rating by itself.
