This lively full-colour illustrated craft book shows how to make a range of handicrafts from fleece and yarn, including toys, friendship bracelets and braids, balls, pompoms, dolls, dolls clothes and animals. With clear diagrams and step-by-step instructions, the book starts by introducing children to basic methods of spinning yarn, crocheting, knitting and felting. There is a broad range of projects for children of all ages to complete, working together with adults.
'I found it clear rather than intimidating and therefore an inspiration to introduce my children to activities I enjoyed as a child.' -- Laura Whalen, Juno, Summer 2011. 'This colourful and well-illustrated book introduces a variety of crafts which use wool and yarn. The book's introduction is friendly and encouraging, and it contains some down-to-earth wisdom on the benefits of learning crafts, the satisfaction which they give and the importance of practising the skills until a good result is achieved. The instructions are clearly laid out, easy to read and easy to follow. Illustrations are clear and helpful. The book is very enticing and the projects are not too ambitious for beginners.' --Home Education Advisory Service Bulletin.
