Sew Sweet Creatures: Adorable Plush Animals to Stitch!

I have lots of fun news to share this month! It's funny the way these things work out - you work on a whole bunch of different projects at different times, then they're all published at once and you seem like a super-busy crafting machine.

Today I'm delighted to be able to show you guys the projects I designed for Sew Sweet Creatures, a new book from Lark Crafts which features 16 plush animals with matching accessories:


I know I am a teeny bit biased but this book is straight up ADORABLE. I actually emitted a small high pitched squeak upon seeing everyone's projects - all the animals are very cute and their accessories are super charming.

You can make a cupcake-baking squirrel, an adventurer bear, a party-loving fox, a lumberjack beaver (complete with logs joined together by velcro so you can "chop" them!), and more!


I designed four creatures for the book.

There's Alex the crafty bunny, who loves to knit and sew...


... (look! there's Alex peeking out from the inside cover of the book!)...


... Olivia the fairy mouse who's here to grant your wishes...

 

... Lynne the festival-loving panda...

 

... and Samuel the superhero pig!

It was an absolute joy to design these animals and all their accessories, and so much fun coming up with little stories about them and their lives. I hope you guys will have just as much fun stitching them when you buy the book!

Sew Sweet Creatures is out now in the USA and will be published here in the UK later this autumn. It's available from Amazon USA and many other bookshops, and you can pre-order it from Amazon UK. Please note: The Amazon links in this post are affiliate links.

Oh my gosh, those creatures are so adorable! Not sure I can bring myself to put up a tape measure to make into something else though - might just have to wait until one of my children (inevitably) snap one.

Another triumph! :-)

These animals are so cute! And the things they have with them....I love especially the guitar, yes I think I have to make this guitar and the little fairy with her beautiful dress too. Another book on my wishlist :-)

Vikki - it did feel quite weird cutting into a tape measure to make that bag! Worth it though, I love the look it creates, and you can buy quite cheap ones. I've got crafty plans for using up the rest of the bits of the tape, just gotta find the time :)

Crimson Kettle - thank you so much xx

Katrin - Yay, I hope you'll enjoy stitching the animals when you get the book!
