Want to show your love for your furry friends in your sewing projects, but feel you need to sew more practical pieces for your home? Look no further than this latest book by designer Helen Rhiannon
In Sew Practical Pets, 18 whimsical and imaginative animal-themed projects have been designed to not only add character and colour to your house, but serve also as functional items that'll last for years to come. From useful items such an owl doorstop, a dachshund draft excluder and sheep hot-water bottle cover through to a elephant tea cozy, fox cushion and dog oven mitt, there is a cute and handy little creature for every room. For kids (and the child within us), Helen has also included toys and animal-shaped backpacks, so the little ones can have some of the pawprint fun too
Key techniques and basic materials are detailed at the beginning of the book, and all of the projects include easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. Templates for all the animals are provided on a fold-out sheet at the back of the book.
For sewers of all abilities, bring a touch of playfulness and practicality to your home today with these fresh faux animals that you'll soon love as much as the real guys
