In Hop Skip Jump: 20 Eco-Friendly Toys to Sew Fiona Dalton 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 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 woolen 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 patterns, 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.
