I have a huge confession to make:
I haven't let Little Red see this book yet.
I'm sure once he see's it I will be making most
of the patterns for him.

Now this book made me smile sooo much!
The bright colours and fun designs just brighten up any day.
I am sure so many children will find their favorite animal
among the designs.

Ana has two daughters herself and uses her knowledge as a mum
and what her girls like to design a fun mix of projects for children.

I love the mix of projects that you can make and what you can make them for.
I think Little Reds favorites would be the owl and the mushroom.

I love the fact that you can make the designs in different colours to make
them ideal for both girls and boys.

I love the bear bag in blue. You could even not add the teddy bear face 
and make it for anyone.
I love the look of the fish, it's such a fantastic shape!

Ana talks you through everything you need to do to make all of the projects.
Everything is covered from each of the stitches (including diagrams)
to how to sew in a zip.

I think they would make excellent starting school presents and I 
think some teachers might find them fun gifts as well.

I think there is a really good mix of projects and a good mix of characters.
If you have a young child then this book
is full of things they are going to love.

Once Little Red is back at school I think I'm going to let him
have a look at the book.
I'll probably make up his favorite item because I can't resist
making something so cute!
I may even make the owl book bag for myself ;-)
