Library Journal Review

Mavor lives in a magical world populated by wee people with wooden beads for heads, acorns for hats, and bodies built on chenille stems. It is difficult to put this book of delightful sewing projects into a category, but Mavor herself describes it as "sewing by hand in a playful, fanciful way, with an eye toward the natural world." Using a variety of techniques, including appliqu?, embroidery, painting, and yarn wrapping, the author has created some 18 small hand-sewing projects featuring dolls, purses, pillows, pins, and wall hangings made from wool felt. Step-by-step instructions are included for each design, but once these techniques are mastered readers will be able to incorporate them into their own designs. Highly recommended for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
