By Kristy Wall 01 Sep 2011 5

This book is wonderful! It is very well written, with plenty of good pictures and full of handy hints and tips. Great for a beginner through to an experienced sewer, as it gives instructions for the general construction of the toys, as well as for the embellishments (embroidering the eyes etc). Highly recommended.
