In Dream Toys author Claire Garland has created a unique fantastical collection of five dolls, their accessories, and their playtime companions to make.
The toys have been designed with both girls and boys in mind and include: a mermaid with her pet dolphin and fishy friends; a princess with her fairytale castle; a Wild West hero and his faithful mustang; a fanciful flower fairy family with their magical unicorn; a pirate boy and his pet rat who ride the seven seas in their dinghy complete with skull and crossbones fluttering at the mast!
Each item is easy to knit or crochet, with added trims and embroidery - every one a fairy tale in the making. A techniques section includes all the know-how you need.
This is a fabulously fun and original collection of dolls and toys to make for both boys and girls.
Claire Garland is an exciting new designer who specialises in sewn items for children. She has designed several kits for tapestry companies, but her three young children have inspired many of the projects featured in this book. Claire lives in Cardiff.
