ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY DESIGNER TOYS
In Hop Skip Jump Fiona Dalton, author of the hugely-popular blog of the same name, shows us how to make gorgeous soft toys using natural and repurposed materials.
There's a raft of fun characters to sew, including Arnold the penguin, Doris the sausage dog and Harriet the tortoise. They're all beautifully designed; inspired by the handcrafted toys of yesteryear but with some modern twists.
Making 'green' toys is a good choice for the environment and a great way to save money. With just an old woollen jacket, some second-hand linen or a fat quarter of organic cotton, you can make a unique, quality toy that will last for generations to come.
With simple pattern, clear step-by-step instructions and detailed information about sourcing and using repurposed and sustainable materials, beginners and experienced crafters alike will find it's easy being green.
