I got this book a few days ago and I've started making Emma the rabbit. So far she has a head,body and one ear. I love all the animals and the pattern (once I figured out round 3 on the standard body!!!) is really easy to follow even for a first timer.
Has anyone else made one of these? Can we have an Edward's Menagerie zoo thread?
I've just realised that one of the rabbits legs is shorter than the others and the embroidery thread I ordered is brown and not black like in the picture . On the plus side I got some stitch holders free with my yarn order.
The book is really nice Jelly I want the bird one now though.
I was just going to post about this! I have just made Bridget the elephant, I see a grey dk weight acrylic yarn that I had lying around. I wondered if anyone had any suggestions for yarn for these animals that is a cheaper option than the toft yarn - I just cannot afford that!! Thank you.
I'm onto my 2nd elephant . So far I've been using cheap acrylic from b&m or style craft which are less than £2 a ball. I've just bought some drops alpaca wool though which is lovely and about £3 for 50g ball.
