Whether or not you read your daily horoscope, you still take pride in your astrological sign. From Libras to Leos and Geminis to Virgos, people love to represent their zodiac symbols on clothes, home decor, and more. If nothing else, bringing up astrological sign is a great opportunity to plug your birthday.
Zodiac Felties by Nicola Tedman and Sarah Skeate offers sewists the opportunity to combine their astrological-sign pride with their love for sewing. This book is filled with complete patterns for plushies representing every one of the zodiac symbols.
The projects in Tedman and Skeate's book have a variety of compelling features. Each feltie is small, measuring only a few inches in size. These little plushies will fit anywhere in your home, and they make the perfect companions for young kids. These felties are great gifts for newborns; just choose the appropriate astrological sign and follow along with the easy tutorial. The final products are sized just right for babies, and their soft and squishy qualities will make these plushies immediate favorites.
