Sew Me, Love Me
Best Stuffed Friends to MakeBook - 2009
Perfect for any sewer with a love for animals, this delightful handbook to crafting homemade stuffed animals features 12 fabric and sock animals that are guaranteed to charm. Making appearances are Poppo Piggy, with a big button nose and floppy ears; Jeff Bear, with his lanky body smartly dressed in a turtleneck and corduroy pants; and Wind Lion, with a mane of colorful fabric scraps and a sideways expression. Sewers will learn not only quirky embellishment techniques--from creating button noses or ribbon hair to hand-embroidering faces--but also how to craft clothing accessories such as dresses, tops, scarves, hats, skirts, and pants. Step-by-step illustrations and pattern templates keep the crafting process clear and simple; and because many of the accessories are made from socks, fabric scraps, and trims, these stuffed animals make a perfectly adorable--and affordable--gift.
