This listing is for a signed copy of my third book, Sew & Play Puzzle Ball Animals, which was published by Annie’s in 2015.
A puzzle ball pattern holds a tradition of being passed down to generations of family members. Start your own tradition and create puzzle balls with personality. Made from the softest of fabrics, each stuffed animal in this collection is artfully formed from rings that fit together like puzzle pieces. And the pockets and ridges make them easy to grasp, especially for little hands.
Included are an elephant, a dinosaur, a giraffe, a bunny, a bee and a lion.
Make all six and delight the children in your life with these fun and fuzzy pets.

This is a really fun idea. Abby's patterns are great. Her other book, Stuffed Animals: From Concept to Construction, is probably the best stuffed animal book I have. This one is also well done, and the animals are adorable. I've made the bunny so far, with a modified head and tail. It required more hand sewing than I expected. Each section of the rings is made individually and joined by hand, but that wasn't too bad. I used fishing line to join them. I made the rings a little too tight, though, so don't do that. It should go together more easily after it stretches over time. Overall, good book, good patterns, good customer service, fast shipping.
