There are 24 dolls and toys to make, for very young children all the way up to adults. The cast of dolls and toys are intended as fast friends from early childhood including a marmot plushie and a friendly cat to cuddle as well as practical gifts for babies and young children such as a teething ring and a pyjama bag right up to comfort toys for older children and adults a perennially popular sloth and a pillow in the shape of a raccoon!

There are also character dolls to make, including a superhero and a pretty geisha, so you can build up a big, colourful family of cuddly friends.

The book explains the essential sewing terms and stitches required to make the toys, and the clear, detailed descriptions and diagrams of each project mean that they are easy to follow even if you are a novice sewist.
