10 Small Felt Intrepid Explorers and 30 Tiny Travel Accessories to Make
The promise of adventure! The rolling hills, a walk by the sea, or rambling through the woods… who knows what we might see, who we might meet along the way, and where we will end up? This enchanting book contains step-by-step instructions and diagrams for a delightful collection of animals and dolls made from 100% wool hand dyed felt, complete with felt, linen, and knitted accessories. You will find a Hedgehog and his Sleigh; a Snail who lives in a Mailbox; a Girl and her Bear; two Little Sisters and their holiday Tent; a Fox who is all set ready for his next adventure, and many more. These designs are suitable for most toy makers, each brought to life on the page by one of Simone Gooding’s wonderfully whimsical illustrations.
