... yup, that's right, one of them is in German!
My first book, Super-Cute Felt has been translated into German, Dutch and Italian but each of those editions had a slightly different look than the original English edition (a hardback instead of a paperback, a slightly different cover, etc).
This time round though, Super-süße Filzfreunde: 35 Lieblingstiere nähen und besticken is almost identical - apart from being in a different language, of course! - which made it extra surreal to flick through when I got hold of a copy this week.
Most of the animals in the book have names - you can make "Frida the Forgetful Frog", "Lucy the Laughing Snail", "Sidney the Fluffy Squirrel", and so on. It's really fun to see the different names the animals have been given in this new edition!
For example, you can sew "Frieda, das fröhliche Flusspferd", "Gwendolin, die hungrige Giraffe", "Isidor, der glückliche Igel" and "Klara, die kichernde Krabbe":
I also loved seeing the different animal sounds in the speech bubbles that are dotted through the book:
Wuff! Wuff! (instead of Woof! Woof! in the English edition)
Ruu-kuuhh! (Coo! Coo!)
Piep! Piep! (Cheep! Cheep!)
Fancy making your own felt animals? Super-Cute Felt Animals is available to buy from Amazon UK, Amazon USA, The Book Depository and many other bookshops. Super-süße Filzfreunde is available from Amazon UK and Amazon DE and (hopefully!) many German bookshops :)
P.S. when the book came out I shared a series of free projects to mix and match with the designs in Super-Cute Felt Animals. You can find all the tutorials here.
