Review quote

Oh my! the cuteness is killing me. Samantha [aka mummysam] has turned her quirky and clever drawings into the dearest of little felt playthings / art objects. I am not sure if they are to play with or to be displayed but could easily go either way.The basic shapes of these wee felties are simple - its the addition of stitching, clothing, accessories and facial features that is the genius. With a combination of machine stitching and hand stitching, gorgeous fabrics mixed with felt, - I can see these being very addictive to make. The school boy has a little scarf and school satchel made from felt and the cutest striped school tie! Then there is Colin the nerdy bookworm - sporting a huge moustache, and there is the opera going Marge, complete with a yoyo hat. Along with all the colour and texture, Samantha adds her unique sketch pad touches - with faces and other details like window sashings often 'drawn' on white in black thread - and to complete the book are her wonderful hand drawn how-to illustrations and templates - am I gushing too much?From groovy cars, to chic ladies about town, school boys and bunny rabbits and village houses - you have all the ingredients for lots of afternoons of imaginary play.--whipup.net, 11/20/10show more
