This wonderful collection of handmade toys will delight children both young and old. With seven chapters packed with fresh ideas, there is sure to be something to make that your child will treasure. The 25 projects, designed by expert craftsman Rob Merrett, take their inspiration from traditional playthings, including dolls, animals and cars. Begin with Simple Starters - two-sided toys, made with easy patchwork and applique embellishments. Soft Toys are next, designed in soft colours and gentle prints, followed by 3D Delectables which are in structured shapes and made from multiple pattern pieces. In the Activity section, clever designs will stimulate young children's minds, while The Comfort Zone includes calming and stress-busting toys that are perfect for little ones. Finally, Divine Dollies is packed with trendy, vintage-looking rag dolls. Rob also develops the concept of 'Kids Forever', where designs should appeal not just to kids, 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.
