Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Perfect for any sewer with a love for animals, this delightful handbook to crafting homemade stuffed animals features 12 fabric and sock animals that are guaranteed to charm. Making appearances are Poppo Piggy, with a big button nose and floppy ears; Jeff Bear, with his lanky body smartly dressed in a turtleneck and corduroy pants; and Wind Lion, with a mane of colorful fabric scraps and a sideways expression. Sewers will learn not only quirky embellishment techniques—from creating button noses or ribbon hair to hand-embroidering faces—but also how to craft clothing accessories such as dresses, tops, scarves, hats, skirts, and pants. Step-by-step illustrations and pattern templates keep the crafting process clear and simple; and because many of the accessories are made from socks, fabric scraps, and trims, these stuffed animals make a perfectly adorable—and affordable—gift.

This is one of the best craft books I've come across lately. The styling of the photographs brings out the character of each toy. The directions are easy to follow, and there are plenty of tips for making up one's own softies. I've already sewn up two critters from this book, and they have personality-plus! I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in making quirky, cute stuffed toys.
