Most Helpful Customer Reviews
FANTASTIC - this book is amazingly well thought out and has great detail. It really does teach you how to design and sew your own stuffed animals. It's laid out brilliantly - there's a lesson on a specific aspect of shaping or sewing a toy, and then there's an example project that you can do which allows you to practice that skill. Lots of great detailed information about why you're doing each step and how it affects the look and shape of the final project. I think a beginner or an advanced sewer would benefit from this pattern book - it's awesome! the projects are SO cute, there's a great variety, too... a monster, a crab, a camel, a teddy bear, a bumble bee... something for everyone, and lots of great ideas on how to design your own!
