The author demonstrates how hand and machine sewers of all skill levels can create their own small plush toys with material such as felt, fake fur, beads, ribbons, pipe cleaners and pellets. It offers 60 original animal patterns, easy-to-follow instructions, and clear illustrations so construction is quick and easy. The book is divided up into different construction techniques: shifting stuffing, movable arms and legs, and armatures for long, narrow parts. Readers can also learn how to create their own patterns from drawings and photographs.

Library Journal Review

Tiny toys--many only 3" tall--fit nicely in pockets and children's hands, and they are easily carried about in a plastic bag while still being worked on. Hall, the author of 11 previous needlecraft books, including Soft Sculpture, here creates a menagerie of fetching animals created from scraps of felt, faux fur, beads, and other easily obtained craft materials. Included are full-size patterns and step-by-step instructions for sewing (by hand or machine) 52 toys from dogs and ponies to salamanders to a fanciful dragon, along with information on designing and embellishing these tiny toys. A good choice for all public library crafts collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
