I wasn't sure about this book when I saw the cover, would I like this book? YES! It's not, as I'd thought, full of stuffed animal heads! OK, so there are one or two stuffed animal heads, but they are so cute!
The rest of the book is packed with projects using all kinds of different techniques. There's a knitted fox scarf which, if I had the patience, I would love to make.
Next on my project list is a set of appliqued flying ducks - think Vera Duckworth on Coronation street, and one of the cute bear head needlefelted brooches.
There is a real variety of projects in this book. There are also tiger rugs, bearfeet slippers, a wolf headdress, birdcage lampshades and plenty more. The first thing that caught my eye was the wire bird.
So what did I think of the book? There were several projects in it I'd like to make (when I get a chance of course!), it's definitely not all stuffed heads! I think it'd be great for any skill-level of crafter, and pretty much any discipline. There are a couple of projects which require a skill - knitting or crochet - but the rest of the projects could be tackled by anyone.
