Get creative – FREE FOR EVERY READER
Ideal for festive gifting – cute, knitted animals and their mini-me toys, with keepsake outfits to knit and sew by Sue Stratford.
Knit Me, Dress Me, Love Me (RRP £12.99) is filled with knitting patterns for seven adorable animal toys – a rabbit, a kitten, a mouse, a puppy, a panda, a teddy and a monkey – each approx 8in (20cm) high and all easy and quick to knit. Each animal has a mini knitted version of itself that can be stored in the little shoulder bag or backpack that it carries. There are patterns for over 50 garments and accessories in which to dress the toys – most of them knitted and some sewn. All the clothes are one size and designed to fit every animal, so the reader can mix and match items to create their chosen toy’s own unique wardrobe. The outfits are split into themes such as Out to Play and Time for School, and include pyjamas, outdoor clothes, summer dresses, school uniforms and so on, with added accessories.
Readers are encouraged to use up scraps of yarn and fabric they already have for the clothes, reusing materials from a favourite item that they’ve long since outgrown to make a keepsake toy that has special significance.
