I am loving making the different designs from the book.
The patterns are so easy to follow and full of so much imagination.

There isn't a single pattern I don't want to make.
Little Red is loving all the different designs.
It's such a complete set.

There are so many fantastic techniques used.
It's amazing the amount of detail in each pattern
but they aren't daunting and are really easy to follow.

There are some of the patterns that are slightly more difficult but
nothing that most crocheters wouldn't be manage.

Children will just have so much fun with this set.
Little Red doesn't even want to take them in the bath with him.
He just wants to play with the set.

I love Megan's use of terry cloth to get an even better
look on some of the animals. 
The bottom of the whales and sharks are terry cloth
and it works really well.

All of the animals and characters are the perfect size to interact
with each other.
The mermaid and diver look fantastic.

Which is your favourite?
We started our collection off by making the jelly fish


The pattern was very easy to follow and
Little Red loves his Jelly Fish.

I would highly recommend this book!
It is jammed packed full of brilliant patterns!
