Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stirred by the Japanese craze for plush toys called softies, veteran crafter Therese Laskey commissioned acclaimed artists from around the world to create projects to share. From Japan to Israel to Chile to Texas, each artist brings a wicked sense of fun to the 25 cute, weird, edgy, or artful creations offered here: a cupcake pincushion; delicate snow bunnies; a peculiar robot; and many more quirky creatures. Cheeky photos, easy instructions, and ready-to-use pattern sheets make it a cinch to whip up these irresistible gifts. Best of all, a folder at back holds the patterns while spiral binding makes for craft-friendly use.

Review:

"There are so many different kinds of crafts, and, just when you think you've seen them all, a global movement like softies comes along and gives you a whole new road to explore." Leah Kramer, craftster.org
