20 Simple Sewing Patterns for Stylish Toys by Melissa Lowry (Author)


Book Description

This unique craft book teaches readers how to sew animal dolls with contemporary style. Artist and pattern designer Melissa Lowry was inspired to create these plush characters when searching for safe kids toys that fit her modern style. As a result, each doll is designed with both playtime and design trends in mind. The doll’s friendly features are made with easy-to-learn needle felting techniques, which means soft, cuddly toys, without any sharp plastic components. Experienced sewers will love the up to date aesthetic of the patterns and beginners will find the minimal, clean lines as approachable as they are appealing. These dolls are the perfect handmade touch for a chic nursery, and make a special gift for any fashionable new mum.

Choose from a wide variety of whimsical animal characters, including a whale, a cat, a seahorse, a fox and even a unicorn, all featuring Melissa’s fresh, creative touches. The projects are easy to personalise with quick patterns for dresses, suspenders and hats in a trendy mix-and-match colour palette. Each animal comes to life with its own narrative backstory and personality traits, so kids can imagine and play. Friendly, step-by-step instructions make it easy to create these modern family keepsakes, built to be played with, crafted to last. This book will contain 20 projects with a photograph for each, plus comprehensive step-by-step images and traceable sewing templates.
