Use them to decorate your clothes and accessories, to give as gifts - or to decorate your gift wrap and greetings cards - and to collect as a creative display piece. These entrancing little beasts are thoughtfully displayed in a directory at the front of the book. Choose from winged insects and flying fancies, hanging horrors, cute ladybugs and perfect honeybees, tropical terrors and backyard favourites. Each critter is cross-referenced to a complete pattern and/or chart at the back of the book, with information on stuffing, finishing and yarn requirements: plus helpful hints on creating iridescence and translucent wings. You'll also find a mixture of fun and fabulous ideas for using the creatures in a range of styles and settings: children's designs, quirky homewares, and elegant fashion accessories.
