Shelf 61h5bcleool

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.

What projects are you currently working on?

Currently working on a hoody from the Tilly and the Buttons stretch book. We're moving houses soon so I'm also thinking of some home DIY projects for our new place.

Come behind the scenes at Felted Button for a #KnittingNookTour and see Susan's headquarters in Sandy.

I find the colorful chaos of my space stimulates my inspiration, as long as it stays a bit organized! Often, all it takes is a little rummaging through yarn bins, lining up balls of yarn across the floor, and grabbing my hook to really get me busy creating. My least favorite part of my space is actually my computer--because the work I do there is my least favorite--pattern writing, tech editing and answering email. To help with this--I add lots of colorful bits and bobs around, like a crocheted mouse pad to make it feel less like drudgery and more like creative play.
