Details: Product Description For over thirty years Sue Quinn has designed gorgeous little felt animals that appeal to both adult collectors and children. Now she would like to share her master secrets. Colourful, strong and easy to use, felt is the perfect material to make this collection of charming classic woodland animals. Follow the clear step-by-step instructions to create a group of endearing little creatures that you will want to make and keep. Review August 2015 Summer school is over, time to get crafty! One of my favorite craft books of 2015 came out earlier this month, How to Sew Little Felt Animals by Sue Quinn. These animals honestly look like they came out of a craft store, they are really cute and detailed, and I love their little outfits. All of the patterns for the different animals are completely separate, which makes them all look unique, and the step-by-step instructions, written and visual, will appeal to any and all beginners. ― http://kickassbookreviews.blogspot.co.uk August 2015 For over thirty years Sue Quinn has designed gorgeous little felt animals that appeal to both adult collectors and children. Now she would like to share her master secrets and show these creatures are not only playthings but something you can treasure forever. Colourful and easy to use, felt is the perfect material to make this collection of charming woodland animals. Follow the clear step by step instructions to create a group of endearing little creatures that you will want to make and keep ― SEWING WORLD April 2015 This magazine very nearly didn't happen. Everything was going well until I received a preview of Sue Quinn's new book. I just couldn't put it down. It's a forest fiesta; a woodland wonderland... I just had to try making one of the gorgeous patterns it contains. First I wanted to make a rabbit - I have a soft spot for rabbits; but then Mrs Mole was asking me to make her too, with her beautiful pink duster coat... and who could resist the squirrel's bushy tail or the cute baby bear cuddled up with his own tiny ted... Turn just a few pages of Little Felt Animals and your fingers will be twitching to pick up the scissors, needle and thread. Each creature has a little family and every one of them can be dressed in their very own wardrobe. There are beautiful photo illustrations throughout, clear step by step instructions and, for anyone new to the art of making soft sculpture figures, easy to follow basic techniques. All the animals and quite a few accessories are make from felt or wool felt which means no frayed edges - a blessing for anyone sewing! ― Teddy Bear Times June 2015 For each animal you will find a detailed colour photo of the finished animals and a brief note from the author regarding character personality, costuming and possible fabric choices. Each project starts with a material list and a copy of the pattern. The patterns are ¾ size in the book and will need to be increased 133%. (I think the size increase is a matter of personal preference, you could make the pattern larger or smaller for miniatures or standard sized plush animals.) The author includes detailed step-by-step instructions for each part of the process. There are also descriptive colour photographs to accompany each step. The book begins with information on materials and basic techniques. These include stitches, filling and shaping, sewing features and pattern transfer. These animals are jointed with cotter joints and there are detailed instructions for installing the joint system. (I did not have any joints on hand, so I did not joint my Mole when I made him). Instructions in this book are clear and easy to follow. My favourite character in the book is the Mole, and it did not take long to make this little guy. I am more comfortable sewing by hand, so probably 80% of my project was sewn by hand. I find it easier than fighting a machine on small curves, and I do not have the masterful technique of the author when it comes to machine st
