Who doesn't have single socks? John Murphy shows you how to transform them into "quirky, lovable figures" with detailed directions, hints and drawings, plus pictures of his own weird little critters. Even if you never stitch a single one, it is a fun book to browse, with many witty remarks, even bios of the goofy sock creatures and a short color cartoon.

i absolutely adore this book! i myself make sock monkeys, but after reviewing the book, i might actually take up stupid creatures instead! i highly reccomend anyone to this book--young or old. just looking at the gallery of past stupid sock creatures will inspire your inner-creativity and make you laugh.

"Murphy, who was trained in ceramics and also writes comic strips featuring his creatures, covers all the techniques for making eight different characters from cast-off socks either by hand or using a sewing machine....This book is sure to get readers' creative juices flowing."
