Bathtime Buddies by Megan Kreiner
|Bathtime Buddies by Megan Kreiner|
My immediate impression of Bathtime Buddies is that Megan Kreiner has excellent skills when it comes to crochet and designing. Upon closer look, I found that she is an artist and animator for Dreamworks Animation SKG, so it is no surprise that the “buddies” within are so artfully crafted! The playful title of the book belies the fact that there are some excellent projects that duplicate life in the sea with great accuracy!
As we’ve come to expect from Martingale, the stitch illustrations are clear and very helpful and the projects follow skill-building progression so beginners can learn lots on their way to creating some impressive creatures! Some bonus skills are included also to enhance the look of each project such as crocheting on the surface, sewing, embroidery plus finish techniques.
Bathtime Buddies was published by Martingale in August 2014 and is available in both print ($22.99) and electronic ($14.99) versions.
