The projects include teddy bears, rabbits, birds, sheep, cows, pigs, fish, mice and many more in a range of fabrics, finishes and colours, and there's a mix of styles to suit everybody, from a classic brown teddy bear to more unusual designs like the bright and funky button-eyed bunnies! There is also a selection of applique and embroidery projects, such as an owl mobile-phone pouch, a fish motif glasses case, a seagull cushion and a child's bear-design coat, as well as a keyring, purse, scarf and baby's cot quilt. Beginners will enjoy the easy-to-follow instructions along with the full pattern templates, and more experienced stitchers won't be able to resist making these charming creatures. Inspiring and imaginative, there's even a toy rabbit to fashion from a pair of woollen gloves!
