Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows is a classic that has entertained adults and children alike for over a hundred years. Characters such as Ratty, Mole, Badger, and the irrepressible Mr. Toad, have influenced children’s stories ever since.

This book instructs you in the joyful craft of hand-stitching wool felt animals, made posable thanks to interior wire armatures. It will teach you basic sewing and the specialized techniques required to create these charming felt friends that will provide hours of play.

The book includes five key characters from the classic Kenneth Grahame tale, with interchangeable clothing, accessories, and a few small furniture pieces. Interwoven throughout the book, a collection of magical photographs and quotes from the original book highlight the animals and their accessories in natural settings to spark the imaginations as you create.

This book will transport you to a light-hearted, creative world of charming wool-felt animals, imagination, and mindful hand-stitching. You can explore your stitching practice through its pages while letting your storytelling thoughts wander.

This book will inspire beginners and delight experienced makers with its designs. While creating enchanting felt animals, you will learn to enjoy every stitch from beginning to end, no matter your level of experience, with detailed illustrations, full-size patterns, and step-by-step instructions for each project.

Cynthia Treen's felt animal designs are classics in the making! Her passion for teaching comes through in detailed instructions and illustrations - perfect for beginners and advanced makers alike. Let your imagination wander as you stitch new adventures into life!

Shipping from United States

Orders are shipped within the US free via USPS parcel pos (if the weight allows) and priority mail if the weight is above 8oz.

International shipping is available but is not free of charge. Shipping times on international orders cannot be guaranteed.

In the case of a return or exchange, all shipping costs are non-refundable and are the responsibility of the buyer.

Lost packages are unusual, but should this occur I do not reimburse for shipping or the lost item. If you would like shipping insurance, you must contact me prior to purchasing your item so I can include it in the order.

Once a package leaves the US, the package is no longer trackable. Typically, there are no issues and orders arrive within 5 - 15 business days of shipment. Unfortunately, shipping internationally is not foolproof and sometimes orders are lost. We will look into lost packages 3 weeks from when they left the US.

International customers may be subject to an import tax which is calculated and applied by their own government (we are not provided with your tax implication information before or after shipping your package). Should this fee be applied to you, Cynthia Treen Studio will not be held responsible for covering or reimbursing charges.
