Children of any age will love these soft toys with surprises
A lively ostrich whose neck ring turns her into a ring-toss game, an adorable puppy with hidden pocket for storing treasures, and a cute bunny that magically appears out of a head of lettuce are sure to bring smiles to the whole family. These colorful and fun-to-make toys are designed for anyone with basic sewing skills, and kids can even help with some of the easier projects. Many of the over 20 features projects are based on classic toys and games like puppets, topsy-turvy dolls and dominoes.
Readers will create a crazy cat with magnetic feet, a turtle that doubles as a tic-tac-tow game, butterfly finger puppets, and much more. A chapter covering basic techniques, materials, and tips for construction ensures success for beginners, and each toy is accompanies by a brief history of how it came to be.
