I was so excited when I received this book.
As soon as you look at the cover you realise just how much
fun it's going to be!

Fleece is a fantastic medium for kids
as it's soft, warm & easy to wash.
It's comfortable to wear and your stitches sink into
the thickness of the fabric so is very forgiving.

Now I will always prefer crocheted hats.
That has something to do with the fact that I am a crocheter.
However I will be making Little Red at least one of these.
They are so bright and fun!

The book is amazing detailed and the instructions
are good enough that you would be able to design your own as well.
You could also amend the hats to give them your own personality.

You get templates for hats in sizes extra small, small, medium & large.

At the start of the book you get all the basic templates.
These templates are everything from the hat itself to the earflaps.

As you go onto the page for each design you also
get the templates specific to that pattern.
You also get all the tools and materials you will need.

Easy to follow step by step instructions are also given.
I found them really easy to understand.

Some parts of the project are handsewn & some are machine sewn.
Please be aware of this.

Not only does the book give you hat patterns
you also get patterns for a dinosaur bag,
giraffe scarf & monkey applique.

Some of the templates also need increasing in size.
So you'll need to be able to copy and resize.

Overall this is a fun and interesting book
with some fantastic designs.
You get 25+ easy-to-sew projects
so you'll have lots you want to make.
There is sure to be something to make you smile.
These would make fantastic gifts for family and friends.

I received a copy of the book to review.
However all opinions expressed were my own.
No monies were received for this post.
