Soft toys have an unfailing appeal both to the maker and to the recipient.

Suzy Ives, a talented designer, has prepared detailed instructions for making a variety of felt toys. These instructions are so clearly presented that they can be followed without difficulty even by the least experienced worker, whether child or adult.

There are patterns for making a Mouse, a Hedgehog, a Snake, a Tortoise, an Owl, a Lizard and a Dragon. The delightful Oozle and the Broccoli Bird are of the author's own invention. Also inclluded in the book are instructions and ideas for glove and finger puppets to represent a Girl, a Boy, a Lion, a Tiger, a Penguin, a Skeleton, a Bear, a Clown and an Indian Girl. The author gives additional ideas for further experiment.

All the puppets and animals shown here are best made in felt, although other material can be used satisfactorily.

None of these toys is extravagant with materials, and the scraps of felt left over after making two or three toys can be used for the decoration of other toys.

Suzy Ives, a qualified teacher of junior children, has specialized in art and crafts. She is now a freelance designer, writer and illustrator.
