The dogs and their accessories are adorable, really incredibly cute and fun. What I thought I was ordering, though, was a book on needle felting, so while the book is excellent for what it is, the description and categorization badly need to be revised. This is about making stuffed dogs and accessories from faux fur and other materials. Nowhere is there anything about needle felting, though that is the search term I was using.The reason I'm giving the book only two stars is in the hope that others will read the review and not make the same mistake I did.
Another super cute book of itty bitty stuffed puppies!There are detailed instructions to make the cover puppy and the rest are variations on a theme.Be ware, these puppies are only something like 2 inches tall, so if super tiny scares you, this might not be for you.For me, I plan to scan the pattern and increase it's size until I am more skilled to make them super tiny. :)This book also includes how to make super tiny accessories for your super tiny puppy!You can make bowls, bones, clothes, whatever your heart desires! :)Again, adorable pictures are very entertaining and I highly recommend, simply for cuteness.
I wanted this book because it is a stuffed animal book and not a felting book. I think the dogs are absolutely adorable however they really are so small that it is daunting. I have made one so far and it fits on a quarter. It is not near as cute as the picture in the book but it is really fun and though advance, it is doable.
This book couldn't be any cuter. I want to make every one of those dogs. The photos really make the mini stuffed animals come to life . That makes this book entertaining to anyone that likes characters and stuffed animals, even if they don't have the time to construct any. Hats off to Chie Hayano-thank you so much.V.-Clearwater FL
This book would have been fine if it had been advertised mainly as a children's story book with low resolution, blurry pictures; but, it is not. The books is mostly pictures that show little detail, are blurred, which distorts the definition of the dogs and accessories. There are little stories about each felted animal that has a cutesy name. The number of pages to detail how to make the dogs and other items, are fewer and the patterns are very tiny and hard to work with. It appears that the patterns and instructions were squeezed into the back few pages of the book and the useless stores and useless photos took up most of the book.The animals are made out of faux fur and it was my fault for looking more into the description of the book, because I also thought it was a book on needle felting.Because the photos are blurred, it is hard to see the true definition of how the finished items are to appear. They appear more cartoon like in the story part book, which is most of the book, than you would expect them to be in real life and what you would need to go buy. You might not be disappointed if you are looking for a child's storybook; but, if you are looking for a book that has good, clear and the instructions are not all squeezed together, you might enjoy the book. I think it is mostly a children's book.
I originally thought that this was a book on needle felting. When I received it, however, I was pleasantly surprised. These tiny pups are so adorable, and I could see gifting them to just about anyone (except babies). The author gives very detailed instructions and breaks everything down so it's fairly easy to understand. Plus, there are illustrated visual aids for those of us who don't understand directions very well. ^__^
I sew doll cothing and like to add something fun to my fashions when I put them up for sale. Instructions are for the advanced sewer, but is a cute addition to my collection
I wanted NEEDLE FELTING and this came up in the selections - I thought I was buying a NEEDLE FELTING book.
