"Totally lovely . . . The instructions are clear and Shelly's hand-drawn illustrations for each step are a perfect accompaniment . . . This is one of those instances in which buying a book is really worthwhile." --While She Naps
"Great for absolute beginners with no
sewing experience . . . Also, a great addition to an experienced plushie maker . . . as the details and color palette will surely inspire you in your next customization." --Noisybeak
"The cutest book . . . Since the dolls are entirely handsewn out of wool felt, they take a little extra time, but the end results were so cute!" --Clover & Violet
