Soft Toy Making (Paperback)
First published in 1950, this is a vintage guide to making classic stuffed toys by hand. With simple, step-by-step instructions and dozens of imaginative projects, this profusely-illustrated guide will appeal to anyone with an interest in hand making toys-no matter what their skill level. Contents include: "Consideration of the suitability of materials", "Progressive work", "Scales patterns", "Clothing", "Tools and Equipment: No special tools or equipment", "Materials for pattern-making. Materials: Suitability", "List of materials", "Materials for accessories", "Stuffing", "Kapok and other types of fillings. Accessories: Faces, hair, and squeakers", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of toys.
