Crafty Creatures

Blogged under Good Books by Tammy on Sunday 18 August 2013 at 1:35 pm

Jane Bull is the author of Crafty Creatures (DK; $20.00), a jam-packed adult guide to creating a host of cuddly animal characters. Crafty Creatures has four sections and includes more than 30 projects. In “Woolly Knit Animals,” knitters can create yarn octopuses and “knitten” kittens. Make your own felt pocket pets, or “minimals”, Jane’s term for plumped up pillow creatures, in the “Friends in Felt” chapter. The “Sew Cute” chapter provides instructions on how to sew versions of man’s best friend, rag doll rabbits, and “doodlephants”. The last craft chapter, “Animals in Stitches,” offers multiple cross-stitch patterns including one to create individual pet portraits.

    Cute video and darling little creatures. Some would make great Christmas tree ornaments as well.
