Crocheted Bears and Other Animals by Emma Brown
25 Toys To Crochet by Emma Brown
A world away from mass-produced plush toys, Crocheted Bears and Other Animals by Emma Brown is a collection of 25 crochet patterns for creatures who live on the make-believe island of Shady Bay. Every animal has a part to play in island life. Archie and Boris are two crafty canine brothers and together they build homes for the island’s other inhabitants. There’s Breeze the owl who swoops high amongst the trees gathering the midnight fruit for the other animals and the Bungle Bees, who tend to all the wild flowers on the island, watched by their friend Missy the bear, who loves to wander in the meadows where the Bees live. Cherry Cat runs The Cupcake Cafe and her friend Blossom the sea bird often pops in for a chat and a bite to eat.
With 25 beautiful crochet toy patterns by Emma Brown to choose from, there’s guaranteed to be a toy here to spark the imagination of any child and become a firm friend for life. Crochet patterns for lambs, monkeys, bears, rabbits, cats, dogs, bees, birds, mice and more!
Emma Brown taught herself to crochet. She enjoyed making small animals so much that she began to think up her own patterns. Her ideas begin as a simple sketch and she enjoys choosing a colour scheme and a name for each character. Emma Brown has a keen interest in home crafts and has even learnt how to spin yarn. Emma Brosn lives in Dorset, UK, with her husband and three children.
