5.0 out of 5 stars the joys of creation 25 Jun 2010
This is an excellent priced hardback book representing great value for money. We might think that all kids these days are only interested in computers, but deep inside - they all love handmade things, especially something to cuddle. Encouraging creativity is also important for development, so get the kids involved, set aside a regular morning and work your way through this book full of great ideas for kids.

This book has all you need to encourage your children's creativity, fire their imagination (I'm longing for a set of fairy wings wings myself not to mention a tiara and magic wand). The patterns are adaptable with a little imagination. I love the felt cell phone and I am guessing there will be a scramble to see who gets the first cat bag and socks will be disappearing from drawers to make dozens of sock monsters. Good old-fashioned play with practical ideas, this book has plenty of appeal for a wide age range. It comes complete with easy-to-follow instructions, advice on techniques, templates and suppliers. Perfect for the summer holidays and highly recommended. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice book 17 July 2011
I bought this book for my girls and we all like the book very much. Many great projects, both easy ones and some a little harder. I would say the age should be from around 7-8 y and up. So nice photos and layout and the descriptions for the projects are also very good. Don't worry to buy this book, it's worth the money!

Thought about purchasing this book for about a year before taking the plunge as I am gathering quite a collection of sewing books, but this one is great. Well worth the price. We're making the rag doll at the moment.
