Clangers: Make the Clangers and Their Planet with &hellip by Peter Firmin
9 of 9 people found the following review helpful
not only are there knitting patterns here, but there are instructions on creating an 'outdoor set' and an 'indoor/inside set' using materials that most of us can lay our hands on fairly easily. my Boy loves making the rockets etc and mechanical stuff and the iron chicken. Whilst younger sister likes the clanger family in all different sizes and the soup dragon. If you don't have the exact materials suggested in the book, mostly they are easily substituted. Good creative fun for knitters and crafters and others, you really can't go wrong!!!!!

This machine is wonderful to use- good range of speed control and the ability to adjust the speed ranges of the foot pedal by the speed control placed handily on the front of the machine is brilliant. automatic threader is v helpful. the instructions are clear. Would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want a computerised machine but a really good electric machine instead. Stitch chart is helpful. Presser foot pressure adjustment for different fabrics is also very helpful. The reverse stitching lever for finishing is handily placed and the thread cutter is also extremely helpful. Was updating from a 1950's singer machine and couldn't believe the difference. Haven't tried buttonholes… Read more
5.0 out of 5 stars kids think these are fab and love wearing them, 26 Jan 2012
very worthwhile purchase- and great for walks on breezy winter days - the kids love wearing them too. The sizing does seem quite generous. the charcoal colour is a favourite too.
