Say hello to Fringle, Rokpok, and Grunch! These lovable creatures are a few of the cast of characters dreamed up by Louise Evans, aka Felt Mistress, for you to make. Each creature is beautifully illustrated by Jonathan Edwards and specially photographed for the book.

 Clear step-by-step instructions, accompanied by line drawings, guide you through the making process, and an introductory chapter helps you tackle working with fake fur, using toy joints, and more. At the back of the book you'll find full-size patterns for all the creatures (and their clothes) ready to use.
