Overview

In this whimsical craft book, written and designed by Donna Wilson, recipient of the British Design Awards' Designer of the Year, children can make their own collection of stylish crafts—all with the help of a winning cast of knitted friends. Donna's trademark soft and cuddly creatures are pictured in colorful photographs. Not only do these fuzzy friends lead the way by providing clear, step-by-step instructions on how to make a range of popular items, but each unique character, like Charlie Monkey and Cyril Squirrel-Fox— tell us why they made these presents and surprises for their friends. Readers will learn how to easily create pop-up greeting cards, a phone cover, dress-up clothes, a stuffed felt mobile, along with many more practical and adorable crafts.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–8—This book about making animals out of socks, mittens, felt, paper, and other materials is narrated by the crafty creatures themselves. Wilson includes instructions, lists of supplies, templates to trace, suggestions for when parental help may be needed, and more. All of the projects are made from easily found materials. The "creatures" create practical crafts such as a cell-phone cozy, a draft blocker, and a key ring. There are pop-up cards and game boards (with rules of how to play the game), kites, and mobiles. There are tips on sewing and diagrams of how to assemble each creature. Full-color photos appear throughout. The book is a grand adventure for crafty readers, either for individual use or as a resource for classroom projects.—Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA
