I really want to give this book 5 stars because the projects are so appealing but I had some minor frustrations while following the instructions.

First, I enlarged & cut out all the pattern pieces in the template for the red cap mushroom. I gathered the items on the materials list and set to work. While following the sewing directions, I came across additional pieces that needed to be cut out that were not included with the pattern or itemized on the materials list. I found it distracting to stop sewing to measure & cut additional pieces scattered throughout the directions. Two of these pieces were integral to the design, not just little decorative touches. These should have been included in the materials list or, even better, in the pattern.

Next, the stem piece I cut according to the measurements was too big to fit around the specified 2" diameter circle. I had to trim over an inch off to make it fit. Not a big deal with the mushroom, but a wrong measurement could be a major problem with a different project.

Lastly, the author calls for paper pet bedding to be used as stuffing material but she does not specify which kind. When I went to the pet store there were crinkles, pellets and shredded paper bedding available. Each one is considerably different and yet I could see that any of them might conceivably work. Which one?

In the end I got it all together and stuffed the `shroom with polyfill. I am really pleased with the result. I plan on making a few more things from this book because the minor errors and oversights are worth the results. I just want to offer some caution to beginning sewers or people who expect directions to be 100% and don't double check before diving in. I recommend that you carefully read through a project and check measurements before starting. That being said, this book is worth having. These projects are adorable.

I was excited to get this book and it was really worth it. I loved the colorful illustrations and cute project ideas. The only thing that I thought would make this book better would be to make the how to instructions actual photos instead of drawings...sometimes the drawings are hard to follow.

One last thing to note is that there is a bit more needle felting required of the projects than i thought so if you have never done this...it could be a little foreign.

I am excited to get started!

The projects are fun, they look good and they look modern, the explanations are clear. Liked it very much. I think with projects books, judgement is a lot about wether you like the designs, and I really like these, they follow in the line of what you see on the cover. The other part: instructions. And these are clear and easy. Happy with the purchase.

I've purchased at least 12 craft books within the last 2 years, most of which were sewing books. This book ranks high compared to others. The ideas are very creative and cute. The instructions are clear enough for an occasional hobbyist like me. I wish there would have been a few more ideas included in the book, but I guess I just want more of a good thing.

Perfectly playful and full of whimsical projects to sew again and again! I especially love the stuffed toys and the hand-drawn illustrations for the instructions add perfectly to the character of this book. A must have for any creative library!

I love this book! The projects are a lot of fun, leaves room for more creativity on your part & perfect for those scraps & bits of fabrics & felt you have laying around. Also great to give as presents & little gifts. And think magnets. If you make some of the things "flat", with your glue gun, you can have nifty fridge or taskboard magnets! :D

Love this fun collection of colorful, up beat projects! The book itself is beautifully graphic designed, with playful dots, layered background textures and professional photography. Excellent color printing on luxurious smooth paper make the project photos jump right off the page.
Heidi's ability to illustrate her own step-by-step instructions mean they are clear, specific and accurate. Her hand drawn pencil sketches reveal a gifted human touch, warming the pages with creativity.
It amazes me how a few simple, contrasted embroidery stitches make each project look more homemade and original.
