Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that I am a craft book-aholic, and am always on the look out for new projects to try with or without my children. I bought this at the same time as two other crafting books - and this was by far the best.
Practically speaking the patterns are excellent, perforated pull out patterns rather then the type you have to photocopy or enlarge. Taking them out certainly won't ruin the feel of the book, as I have found with other books.
The sewing projects are also grouped together in themes such as 'creature comforts' (some of the cutest aminals ever) 'activity toys' (my daughter immediately zoned in on the Babushka Basket) and 'divine dollies'. It makes the book feel really well thought through rather then one of those 'lets cash in on the crafting boom' books.
The photography is beautiful - all of the projects look handcrafted rather then home made, which is what all of us budding crafters are after. The photographs and close ups also serve as inspiration - what sort of beads, buttons and ribbons to look for on ebay or in our local haberdashery shop, and really give you a sense of excitement about what you can create.
Lastly, the instructions are easily read and understood, and the diagrams wonderfully clear and easy to follow.
I would recommend this book for addicted crafters like myself, someone looking for half term projects with the children, or as a wonderful and exciting gift to spark inspiration in a budding, or long standing crafter.

I got this book for my birthday along with a couple of other crafty books - needless to say this is the one I'm using - I love that you don't have to enlarge the patterns, all the patterns are a different colour, so you can see where all the bits are you need, there are great tips for making your toy look good, and the patterns are well written, for the most part. There have been a couple of assumed steps in the two toys I've made, but nothing that a moderately experienced sewer with commonsense couldn't cope with.

Easy to follow instructions, lots of different types of toys to make. This book has the added advantage of having full sized templates/patterns for every toy in an easy tear out section at the back. I don't have a photocopier at my disposal so increasing a template or pattern by 200% or whatever is a problem but this book provides all the patterns in full size all colour co-ordinated so all you have to do is trace them onto paper and off you go! So easy - I wish all the craft books would take a leaf out of this ones book (pardon the pun) and do the same.

I have a variety of different sewing books and wanted one with different toys/dolls. This book and ideas are both funky and traditional, the patterns in the back are on good quality paper and full sized scale so no boring up-sizing. The instructions are clear with handy hints. Im really enjoying this book.

Super patterns, full sized and ready to go- what more could one ask!I only make toys as a hobby, but have made, out of this book
5 storks, in different colours,3 owls, the dachshund, the sheep, Marvin mouse,2 Boos, 1 comforter, and 2 of the large elephants. [ I joined the patchhwork pieces together, I wanted them in a single colour each.
I made them all in fleece, which, in my opinion is a wonderful material for them. Easy to sew and a beautifully soft finish - very "huggable"
I particularly love the storks/birds. After making something large or complicated I usually make a bird as light relief. They are a delight anyway.
