Sewing Luna Lapin’s Friends is a gorgeous book filled with 20 stunning sewing patterns with a lovely story behind them. Step into Luna Lapin’s world and come and meet her magical friends!
Luna Lapin is a quiet and kind rabbit with an eye for fashion. There is a story around all of the garments in the book. In Sewing Luna Lapin’s Friends you’ll not only be able to make Luna, you can make her little friends too. Learn how to make Reynard the Fox, Clementine the Cat, Freddie the Badger and Wilhelmina the Wood Mouse and you will be able to create Luna Lapin, her wardrobe and all of the characters’ clothing.
In Sewing Luna Lapin’s Friends, you will find a lovely short story about the adventure the characters have alongside step-by-step instructions and full size sewing patterns of their exquisite outfits.
Author Sarah Peel made Luna Lapin and her friends using wool felt, with Liberty fabric ears – only the best for such a chic rabbit! Sarah gives some really handy tips in the book. This means you can make a really exquisite rabbit and high-quality clothes for her wardrobe. She includes top tips for hand sewing stitches, sewing machine techniques and cutting out.
There are so many different garments and accessories to choose from, and all the clothing fits all of the characters, so if you love Clementine the Cat but would prefer to make her as a boy, you can sew Freddie’s dungarees for her, or if you would prefer a female fox, turn Reynard into Renata by dressing her in Luna’s tie-shoulder dress.
Sarah has designed the patterns for the child in us all; Luna Lapin and her friends were lovingly designed to be a special heirloom toy that is passed down by generations. The patterns are suitable for a range of abilities; the basic toy patterns and simple items are suitable for beginners but the more tailored pieces are for more experienced sewers. The level of each pattern is identified by either one carrot for easy, up to three carrots for advanced.
We recently got to speak to Sarah to find out all about Luna Lapin and how her story was created. You can read that interview on the blog here. Start your collection by sewing Luna Lapin and see how many animals you end up with… I bet you can’t stop at just one!
