Kid's Animal Pillows Book Review
Being a parent is one of the most rewarding and challenging jobs out there. I have only been a parent for four years, but I've learned pretty quickly about having patience with those little ones who continue to talk and constantly change their minds. I'm sure there are plenty of kids out there who want to paint their room every few months or so, and clearly you're not going to do it. What I like best about Kid's Animal Pillows is that simply switching up the decor of a room can really change the entire look.
Leisure Arts has some really cute publications, but I think this is one of my favorites. Designer Tara Cousins has been crocheting since she was 10 years old and is now inspired by her two little ones. With bright, bold colors in mind you'll love every pattern in this book.
With 48 pages to look through and 10 animal pillow patterns to choose from, you're going to jump with excitement at how cute these are. Unfortunately, there are only two woodland creatures (the owl and the fox), but there are eight zoo animals including a lion, a monkey, a pig, a panda, a penguin and a few others. Each of the patterns is listed as an easy crochet pattern, which is great for those just learning how to crochet.
For most of the patterns the head and body are worked up with a larger hook while the fine details are worked with a smaller hook. This is great to gain experience using different size hooks to see what you prefer. Each pattern also uses Red Heart With Love yarn making your child's new friend soft and squishy. What's unique about these pillows is that each is stuff with a travel pillow form so your little one can be comforted while on long car rides.
If your child loves switching things up often then Kid's Animal Pillows is a great book to have on hand. Changing the decor and giving your child a new play toy should satisfy their needs. And if you personally love fine detail then you're going to fall in love with these animals just as much as the kids. With their cute faces, fun tails and crazy hair, these are the pillows every child should own.
