The photo session for my third book, “Mini knitted toys” is scheduled next week.
How exciting! This book will have more than 35 projects. It is an extended, deluxe version.
The thing is, I had brought too many items at the editorial meeting. Editors picked what they liked for the book, only realizing later that we had too many. We ran out of pages so that we decided to add more pages rather than dropping projects.
We tried to squeeze in as many projects as possible.
After some discussions, we finally decided the last project to include in, and this is the one we chose.
Snow White and seven dwarf.
I found that I have created quite a lot of boy toys as dinosaurs, airplanes, castle and soldiers so that I wanted to add something a bit more girly.
And this project is perfect for step-by-step page. I can include all the making up techniques with assembly steps of Snow White.
Usually, I place a light weight cardboard box inside a knitted cottage to keep its shape, but this time, I stuffed with wool. I thought since this book is a collection of toys, I should make it softer and rounder to make it child friendly.
Because the toys are in different sizes and styles, it is challenging for art designer and photographer, but I know I am in good hands. They always do great job.
I had a meeting with the designer last week. He seemed as excited as I am. He has lots of ideas for the themes. I had hand dyed many pieces of fabric to use for the background, too.
