How to Sew Little Felt Animals
Our #BookOfTheWeek is How to Sew Little Felt Animals by Sue Quinn. We chat to Sue, give you a chance to win the book from Search Press and learn how-to sew a Whip Stitch and Satin Stitch.
I have been designing and making bears and other animals for many years and have a lovely studio where they are all made, in Paisley. I live in Kilbarchan a small village in the west of Scotland with husband and noisy cat. Over the years, I have written books, designed kits, travelled to Japan and US with my work. My animals can be seen in some top retailers but I mostly prefer to sell direct to collectors.
