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.
You can pick up a copy of Super-Cute Felt Animals for under a tenner at Amazon or direct from Laura’s shop Lupin Handmade. Plus, check back tomorrow as Monsieur Le Bun has a copy to give away!

Aren’t these teeny brooches the very last word in understated cuteness? I love their simplicity and clean lines, and that’s all down to the handiwork of Kina Ceramic Design.
But what I really like best of all is this guy:
Ideal for the bathroom, I’d say. Imagine your toothbrush in there. Cuteness!
