Editorial Reviews

Bangor Daily News
"Sometimes knitters just want to have fun....You don't have to be a little girl to enjoy this book."
Knit 'N Style
"The "Babes" are funky and fabulous, odd but endearing, stylish and at the same time sure to become cherished toys."
Yarn: The Australian Magazine for Knitting and More
A charming book that should appeal to young girls and those still young at heart.
Library Journal
These dolls, designed by British needlework designer Garland (Embroidered Treasures), require only minimal knitting and hand-sewing skills and can be personalized with varied clothing, facial expressions, and hair-dos. Garland covers making the basic Babe doll body, face, and hair, then moves on to creating each of the five dolls and their wardrobes. With their flowing locks, spindly arms and legs, and retro-hip personalities, these dolls will probably appeal more to teens and adults than to children. Beginning and experienced knitters alike will enjoy personalizing their Babes, making this a top buy for public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
