Guide Review - Make Your Own Toys
I will be honest... The first pages I usually flip to when it comes to craft books is the specific project instructions! In this book, you will find directions to make 22 different stuffed toys of all shape and sizes. You can make different bears, monkeys, spacemen, bunnies, and many more creatures using old sweaters, t-shirts, socks, and other fabric sources.
Along with the step-by-step directions for each project, you will find a wonderful colored photo of the completed project. There is also a listing of the materials needed and illustrations that help guide you through the toy making steps. You will find hand-drawn pattern pieces for each project in the back of the book. The author suggests how much to enlarge the pattern before you use it, but she also encourages you to experiment by making toys using different sizes.
If you love toys and recycling, I suggest you check out this book. If you enjoy sewing or are just getting started with sewing, this book would make a great addition to your craft library. The projects are easy enough for a beginner to make yet unique enough for an experienced sewer to enjoy.
