Review

Aug/Sep 12 This book draws it inspiration based on the tale of Noah's Ark from the Old Testament and while some of the projects are just cuddly toys, some of the others have practical functions. The collection of sewing projects is both appealing and full of fun and embrace traditional sewing methods, quilting and applique, which will provide beautiful items for you and your home. There are 22 projects to choose from, all with clear step-by-step instructions, attractive hand-drawn diagrams and gorgeous photographs. The projects include cloth dolls, animals, cushions, placemats, wine bottle covers, basket liners and even a tea-time recipe. As I am writing this, it has not stopped raining for days so very topical for the book... whatever happened to 'flaming June'? Fabrications June 12 I initially thought this book was one big project - to make Noah's Ark and then instructions on making the different animals to go into it but it is in fact a collection of projects inspired by the Noah's Ark theme. The projects include duck door stops, sheep cushions, roller skating mice, rabbit hot water bottle covers, various animal soft toys and quirky Noah's ark cushions which have a big pocket for little animals to be put into. There are detailed instructions accompanied by colourful hand drawn diagrams and pictures to guide you through the making process. Unfortunately the cover image looks a bit drab which could put people off but the photography is more vibrant inside the book. Unlike most craft books the templates are not in the back but are next to each project so it saves you flicking between 2 sections of the book. Some of the projects at the end of the book seem a little unrelated as they aren't animal or Noah's ark themed, but they are nice projects including a floral patchwork picnic blanket and a pretty sun hat. It just feels like they ran out of themed projects so put these in to fill the space. However, I have to say it is a nice project book with some very cute animals, my 4 year old wants me to make them all for him! Sewing Directory, The Sept 12 Noah's Ark: Sewing, Quilting & Applique for You & Your Home by Anne-Pia Godske Rasmussen, is a good choice for me since I have a Noah who loves sewing! Noah is 6 and has used my sewing machine to make himself a bag, bunny sleeping bag and patchwork blanket. Together we have been checking out this gorgeous book! His opinion of the book is: Cool! The book is packed full of patterns of gorgeous animals for your Ark. Each one has wonderful clothing and will make great presents for Christmas - between us Noah and I have sorted out gifts for all his friends! There are also patterns for bunny hot water bottles and Herring bags! Noah and I can't wait to get making from the book! makeandcraft.com Oct 12 There are 22 projects in this truly beautiful book with clear, step-by-step instructions, pretty hand-drawn diagrams and gorgeous photographs. Full size templates and diagrams can be transferred to a charting device. Projects include cloth dolls and animals, cushions, placemats, wine bottle covers, basket liners and even a tasty tea-time recipe. Machine Knitting Monthly

I wouldn't usually be interested in making toy animals - but found these enchanting when a friend showed me her copy of the book. Fell in love with the long legged mice with their roller skates! Some very simple designs - as well as those that will need more time - but they will be worth the effort I'm sure.

After having lost my sewing mojo after the last few months I needed a good book to get me going. Im a big fan of tilda ( own all the books) but wanted something new and as captivating. After reading other reviews I took the plunge and bought this book, I can honestly say I love it. There are the most charming tall Giraffes in swimsuits, hippos in cute sailor outfits, a sheep cushion and many more. Tho the cute animals on the front do appear, they are in my opinion far from the best projects in the book. I am just starting my first project from the book and my Mojo is back!!! Great book plus full size patterns.

Lovely clear illustrations and a nice sized book. Delightful range of ideas to inspire. For people who perhaps don't want a Noah's ark idea, don't be put off by this, there are lots of animals all very cute and simple to make.

a nice source of inspiration- I have now made a 3-D quilted ark using the cushion picture as a source and made Noah/his wife plus some smaller felt animals to fill it.

I took a copy of this book out of the library and could not bear to take it back so bought a copy. The patterns are brilliant, especially the 'plaice mats' !
