Reviews

"Glassenberg (The Artful Bird) provides a variety of patterns for stuffed animals, along with hints, tips, and guidance for drafting original patterns for soft toys. Following the book from beginning to end, sewists will not only create a menagerie of adorable creatures, they'll also learn a variety of lessons that will allow them to bring their own ideas to fruition. The projects range from a simple felt-and-cotton fish to a traditional jointed teddy bear. The directions are excellent, with plenty of detail, and many of the sewing pointers that Glassenberg offers will be useful to sewists of all types, not just those making stuffed toys." --Library Journal "I've been eagerly awaiting this book since the moment I heard Abby was writing it. It's a collection of adorable projects to make, sure--but more importantly, it's a detailed manual of all the little sewing techniques that give a soft toy its best shape and most winning personality." --Diane Gilleland, CraftyPod.com "Stuffed Animals is the perfect one-stop handbook for bringing your softies to life. From selecting your design and finding the proper tools to the easy-to-follow construction steps, Abby will help bring your creations to shop level." --Betsy Burger, Design Director for the Craft Department, Simplicity "Abby has created a detailed and informative resource that will inspire you to stitch adorable characters while giving you the skills to design and construct them with ease." --Betz White, author of Warm Fuzzies and Sewing Green "This book is FANTASTIC and I think everyone should own it...This really gives you the information to make your own toys, your own designs while also offering up patterns as well. From sewing darts, to eyelids, to sewing various shapes to adding various details, this book has it all!" --Schmancy "Stuffed animals are treasured by young and old, and those of the handmade variety are even more special. But where do you start if you've never made a plush friend before? The world has an easy answer now: Stuffed Animals by Abby Glassenberg. Some books on making stuffed creations jump in with very little extra information, which can be intimidating to someone like myself with limited experience. That's not the case with this book...This book is the next best thing to taking a class from Abby herself." --Wild Olive Glassenberg (The Artful Bird) provides a variety of patterns for stuffed animals, along with hints, tips, and guidance for drafting original patterns for soft toys.
