Making Flower Children
Adults and older children with a little help can sew a range of lively and creative flower figures, toadstool children, gnomes and even a bee child - all ranging in size from 3 to 5 inches tall - for the seasonal table or play. Many are recognizable from Elsa Beskow's popular picture books and from Sybille von Olfers' Story of the Root Children. Projects are organized by season. Dolls and props are made from wool felt, silk, pipe cleaners, bits of cotton skin toned knit, stuffing wool and hair colored wool roving. Instructions are detailed, step-by-step, easy to follow and include the patterns. 87 pages.
