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 has designed tapestry kits for Primavera, which are exported all around the world. These projects have been created in response to a desire and a need to make things that her children will enjoy and use. This book follows on from her successful first publication, EMBROIDERED TREASURES (Mitchell Beazley and Stewart Tabori & Chang), and KNITTED BABES (Mitchell Beazley and Interweave) to be published summer 2005.
