The Perfection Cuddly Toymaking Kit

Cover of the Perfection Cuddly Toymaking Kit No. 1

The Perfection Cuddly Toymaking Kit was originally published in the early 1950’s in Australia as a home education course for women who wanted to earn extra money making toys, bags, novelties and flowers. The ten booklets contain two lessons each, designed to build on the skills of the student, with well over 20 projects to make.

Whether you love to sew retro toys, or use them as a starting point for creating your own designs, you’re going to love “The Perfection Cuddly Toymaking Kit”. I seriously need to sew the knitting bag, and I wonder if the penguin is the right size for all those excess penguin sweaters that must be lying around these days…
