Book Review – Zodiac Felties!


The dynamic duo of Nicola Tedman and Sarah Skeate are back! In case you didn’t know, these two are responsible for Zombie Felties and Steampunk Softies, and now they’re tacking the stars with Zodiac Felties.

Zodiac Felties by Nicola Tedman and Sarah Skeate

As with the other two, these are great little project-focused books featuring charming characters and clear descriptions of how to make them. Despite being a Capricorn myself, I found that Aries and Leo were my own personal favourites. Aries is the dude on the front cover along with the Gemini Twins. You’ll have to buy the book to see Leo. πŸ™‚

Cute characters, with simple to follow instructions that will help you strengthen your plushie skills, this book is a great addition to the ranks. If I was you, I’d buy all three of them and then make your own super-duper mash-up plushies!
