Expand your knitting and crochet repertoire with this delightful menagerie of miniature bugs and beasts.
There are creepy crawlies and weird wrigglers, beautiful butterflies and splendid metallic-thread dragonflies, as well as the flowers, leaves, shells, pebbles and other objects that form the natural world. Use them to decorate your clothes and accessories, to give as gifts - or to decorate your gift wrap and greeting cards - and to collect as a creative display piece.
Every one of these cute little beasties is thoughtfully displayed in a directory at the front of the book. And each is cross-referenced to a complete pattern and - for the majority of crochet designs - a chart at the back. Information on stuffing, finishing and other techniques is also included.
You'll also find a mixture of fun and fabulous ideas for using the creatures in a range of styles and settings: as seasonal decorations, quirky homewares or elegant accessories
