I could not resist these sweet animal patchwork patterns! And there's a lot of room for creative embroidery once you've pieced your animal together.
Yoko offers many ideas for how to incorporate these animals into finished objects beyond the quilted blanket (though there is that, too). I am personally very charmed by the crocodile pencil bag! What if you personalized it by embroidering the owner's name or stitched an accessory for the croc? These are so sweet and would make darling gifts for children (or child-like adults such as myself!), new babies, or yourself!
