Description

Based on the success of her first book, Making Peg Dolls, Margaret Bloom's new book introduces us to a new range of projects to keep little (as well as the not-so-little) hands busy. From simple peg doll necklaces, moving mobiles and fantastical flying creatures, to pin cushions, herbal dream pillows and nature gathering bags, this series of delightful craft projects, will bring together and inspire all the family in the act of making as well as playing and living creatively. The book includes fifteen designs and patterns for toys and crafts that engage children in the processes of making, playing and storytelling. Easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for experienced and novice crafters alike.

Review quote

"Margaret Bloom's work never fails to whisk me off into the miniature world of quiet magic she creates. I have pored for hours over Making Peg Dolls, drawing inspiration from the tiny projects and cooing over each in exquisite detail. It is such a delight to find Making Peg Dolls and More every bit as enchanting, filled with exquisite photography and beautiful whimsical ideas. I will love exploring the book for my own creative inspiration, but also look forward to sharing it with young friends who are deeply sensitive to Margaret Bloom's distinctive brand of playful sweetness."

--Anna Branford, author of the "Violet Mackerel" series ". . . a feast for the eyes, spirit, heart and mind. The delightful, inspiring, and gentle dolls which Margaret Bloom introduced in Making Peg Dolls take off on new creative journeys in this sequel. Her directions are accessible and easy, the projects themselves irresistible, and the photos by Paul Bloom are splendid. I would have loved a beautiful book like this as a child, and will cherish it as an adult."

--Elisa Kleven, award winning children's book author and illustrator
