Lovely softcover edition of “Decorative Stuffed Toys for the Needleworker,” by Winsome Douglas, with the sub-title “Instructions and Full-Size Patterns for Embroidered Animals, Dolls and Ornaments” -- which pretty much says it all!

Includes patterns for 100s of toys with detailed directions and drawings, 10 black and white illustrations, many line drawings and detailed step-by-step instructions.

Dover Publications, Inc., 1984; unabridged, slightly altered republication of “Toys for Your Delight” (1957); 224 pp., 7-1/4” x 10-1/4”

Chapters include:
Insects and Fish
More Complex Creatures (love this!)
Papier Mache Toys,
Christmas Decorations
Dolls and Their Clothes

Very nice drawings of embroidery stitches and suggestions on customizing designs, too.

Please note: this is a gently used book, with wear to cover and edges, and occasional marks on pages, but in perfectly nice readable condition!

Please convo me for any questions!
