Suzann Thompson has crocheted and knitted since childhood. In junior high, she earned a fortune (of several hundred dollars) by crocheting and selling granny-square handbags. However, she later chose writing and designing over mass production. The author of Crochet Bouquet (9781574213461) and Crochet Garden (9781600599279), Suzann also teaches and writes about crochet, knitting, and polymer clay.
"Readers will find loads of crocheted animals, people, seasonal creatures, and more in this delightful craft collection . . . Skill level is noted, as well as materials and tools, and suggested applications for the particular motif are listed. Each pattern is accompanied by clear, colorful photographs with several examples of the motif that can be created. The author suggests some inventive uses of the motifs . . . unusual and fun designs." --School Library Journal
