- Exceptionally cute teddy bears
- Puppies and kittens
- Pandas and penguins

- Creepy crawlies
- Sea creatures
Each instruction unit specifies needed yarns, tools, and various extra materials, such as plastic eyes, coloured embroidery threads, buttons, and ribbons. Filled with diagrams and photos.
