First there are plenty of pictures and text to help you make the toys. The patterns are FULL SIZE in an envelope in the front of the book. No resizing necessary. Also the directions are easy to follow. Which is a plus for me as I am a visual learner. Pictures are required for me to follow directions.
Also the toys made in the book are created with fleece and felt. The two easiest fabrics to work with *in my opinion*. And also some of the simplest to find in just about any fabric store.
I highly recommend this to those who want some sweet animals to make that look cute and realistic.
Some are more complex but there are plenty that are simple! I highly recommend to the newbie sewer and those of us who have been sewing for years!
* The patterns are easy to sew. Many are suitable for someone who has never made a stuffed animal before.
* The animals are *cute*! It takes talent to make a cute animal pattern with so few pattern pieces- this book does it!
* For those with experience, the patterns offer a good jumping-off point. For example, almost all of the patterns work just as well in fake fur as they do in fleece. Using the tiger pattern, I turned a leopard-print fake fur throw into a whole litter of adorable baby leopard cubs!
If you have any interest whatsoever in making stuffed animals, buy this book. You won't regret it.
Update: I have now cut out quite a few of the patterns and have sewn several. The animals turned out nicely, but the instructions are NOT clear. As another reviewer said, you definitely have to look closely at the pictures. It would also have been nice if the author had given descriptions of the exact eyes that were used to make the animals in the pictures. I really liked the ones shown and wanted to use the same ones in most cases.Read more ›
I was able to create several cute snakes (very easy), turtles(Medium difficulty) and an octopus (easy).
