"This book features large photos and full size patterns. (No enlarging!) All projects can be completed with "fat quarters" so you don't need a lot of fabric kicking around. There are 18 projects in all and wait till you see the fox and the fluffy sheep." - Gail Bartel

"Too cute, right? It only gets better. These three-and-a-half-inch pups have 17 pals you can sew, including a little pug, a tiny fluffy sheep and a plaid raccoon. Author Sian Keegan, who's also a textile designer, included all of the patterns at the back of the book, and her simple instructions are accompanied by hand-drawn diagrams (which I often find easier to understand than more technical ones)." - Lisa Fielding

"The projects are all freaking adorable! Each project has step by step instructions and include some pretty detailed illustrations to go with the text. Though the book is about making stuffed animals, some of the projects take this a step further and show different ways for using them such as attaching them to a mobile or turning them into a tree ornament. At the end of the book, all of the patterns are included and require that you photocopy them at 200% and then cut them out." - Tammy Powley
