Product description

The current fashion for taxidermy is hard to avoid. It seems every trendy bar, restaurant or new boutique you walk into these days has the head of some animal or another gazing down from on high. For those of us who are reluctant for whatever reason to exhibit a decapitated mammal upon our walls, an alternative option has at last surfaced. Using sewing, crochet, knitting, paper mache, and in some cases just cutting and pasting, you can achieve the spirit of taxidermy without the morbid overtones. Combining the twin joys of craft and taxidermy, "Craftydermy" presents a cabinet of curiosities that will delight, amuse and inspire. Projects include a knitted fox stole, paper mache antlers, a crocheted moose head and a felted tiger rug. "Craftydermy" follows on from "You Are Awesome", has a similar tactile quality, and will appeal to a gift/craft market.
