"This colorful collection combines instructions for hand-sewing, knitting, embroidery, cross-stich, and needlepoint to make soft toy animals in a variety of shapes and sizes. Crafters can create creatures that are as fun and fanciful (or realistic) as desired. Verdict: The techniques and projects will appeal to those who enjoy making soft toys, and the directions are simple enough for crafters of all ages." – Library Journal

"Even if you're a newbie with a needle, you and your mini can make the huggable pals in Jane Bull's how-to-book." – Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine

Format: Hardcover
Crafty Creatures is divided into 5 chapters: Woolly Animals, Friends in Felt, Sew Cute, Animals in Stitches and Sewing Kit and Useful Know-how

Woolly Animals features the following crafts: Woolly Octopus, Knittens, Koala Bear and Friends, Li'l Ted, Odd Bods, A Box of Monkeys, Ducklings

This is my favorite chapter. I think the creatures in it are big enough to play with. Plus, there is something for every difficulty level. And there are crafts that reuse material that would have otherwise been thrown away.

Friends in Felt includes: Pocket Pets, Big Pets, Mobile Owls, Cozy Cats, Minimals, Templates, Wild Ones, Bees and Bugs

The crafts in this chapter are cute and I love felt. They all are pretty flat though. And I don't really know what to do with most of them. The mobile is an exception. And there is a tip to turn the small, flat animals into brooches, which is a nice idea.

Sew Cute features: Dog's Best Friends, Pretty Birdies, Bunny Girls, Doodlephants, Your Little Pony, Jolly Giraffe, Cat's Bed

This chapter has bigger designs than the last one. The Bunny Girls are made to play with and so is the Jolly Giraffe (which has a great design by the way). I also like the idea of the Doodlephants: They are plain elephants you can draw on, so you can create a unique creature. Great idea for a party!

Animals in Stitches shows you how to do: Pictures in Stitches, Pet Portraits, Stitch a Doodle, Doodle Decorations

There aren't any real creatures to craft in this chapter. It just shows you how to stitch animals and how to use stitched things in your projects.

I loved Crafty Creatures by Jane Bull. It arrived just as my seven-year old grandson was visiting for a week. The weather wasn't conducive to outside play, so we spent much of our time crafting, with the help of Crafty Creatures. The photos are wonderful and directions were easy to follow.

I bought a big selection of felt, which was very inexpensive. We followed the directions, but used our own creativity. We made a bed for the three bears out of a matchbox cover and added more accessories for a little dog. My grandson did a fantastic job, considering it was his first sewing experience and he had fun. It was a great `reality' activity. I highly recommend the book and the activities it contains.

These are great projects for kids and adults alike. These projects are accessible to the beginner and have clear directions and lots of color photos. I purchased this for myself and my daughters (7 and 4) and will enjoy making many of these together with them.

This little book has some adorable creatures in it for crafting. There are several different techniques that one can use to make these critters. My favorite are the knitted creatures of course.
Young crafters will definitely need the help of an adult.

But the projects are cute. The book works good on the kindle fire 2012 version.

Absolutely adorable little creatures to make and comes with all easy instructions and templates, etc. I purchased this for my 7 yr old for her birthday, and we have both had so much fun just looking at the pics! We can't wait to get started making the little animals, as they are all very adorable and look to be super easy to make. I'm even looking forward to making them as gifts! We originally checked this same title out at the library, and after renewing it twice, realized that we wanted to just buy it, so we'd have it always!

This book has fantastic instructions, easy to follow pictures...I even taught myself how to purl just from the pictures! The projects are fast and easy to put together, but also easy to modify if need be.
