If you like making cute things then we have a great book for you today. Super-Cute Felt Animals is the second craft book from Laura Howard of Lupin and Bugs and Fishes and will help you sew up 35 felt animals.
The projects cover the whole animal kingdom and are split into sections ranging from On The Farm and In The Woods to On Safari and Under The Sea, so you’re sure to find some of your favourites. While they’re cute in themselves, Laura also explains how to turn the finished animals into brooches, ornaments and mobiles for great gifts.
Felt is a really affordable and forgiving material so this book is great for beginners – there are no sewing machines required, just some simple hand-stitching which is all explained clearly at the beginning. There are step by step illustrations and the whole book has a cute design with hand-drawn backgrounds. It also includes full size templates for all the pieces so that you can trace or photocopy them.
