What Others Are Saying
“It's super-cute, super-fun, and super-easy. The craft of felting knitted stuff has now morphed into the creative use of felt to produce everyday look-alike objects, as Lim, one of the craft's prime practitioners, demonstrates in her first crafts book. Without much delay or set-up (after all, just combine felt fabrics, threads, and stuffing), she launches into her dozen sets, each featuring three-to-four items, at least. Directions come first, with emphasis on full-color, step-by-step photographs and streamlined captions. A list of supplies, including felt dimensions, and full-size templates follow-a change from the usual crafting pattern format. The designs, to be honest, are terminally cute. Who could resist sewing a minicomputer with a pear logo or a noncaloric sundae piled high with ice cream scoops and fruit toppings?” -Booklist
 
“Lim, who has a successful Etsy shop of felt patterns, here offers a collection of stuffed toys sewn from high-quality felt fabric that will charm almost every crafter. The projects are hand sewn using a few simple stitches, and many of the items include a great deal of detail—such as a fruit-topped cake with scallops of sewn icing. Photos of each step as well as full-size patterns are provided for each project, eliminating the need to enlarge or shrink pattern copies. While many of the projects in the book would make fun decor for whimsical adults, all of them, made in appropriately child-safe felt, will produce exciting playthings for children.” - Library Journal
