Melly McNeice, the talented designer behind the Melly & Me brand, has a new soft toy sewing book out, Sew Fantasy Toys, and we are very excited to be able to show you a sneak peek.
The book has 10 soft toy patterns for mystical creatures from mermaids to dragons, which will be loved by children and grown ups alike.
The designs in Melly’s latest book are in her distinctive bright and bold style with contrasting fabrics in a range of colourful brights. There are a whole host of fantastical creatures to choose from including Molly the Mermaid, Yumi the Unicorn (my personal favourite due to the retro inspired fabric choice) and Super Scotty the superhero. Let your imagination run wild with Sew Fantasy Toys!
All the projects have step by step instructions with diagrams and full sized templates, and there is a comprehensive techniques section with information on how to stuff the toys and how to stitch features such as eyes and mouths. To find out more about the designer behind the brand read our interview with Melly on the blog here.
