Quirky, cute & cuddly handmade toys. Designed by crafters from around the world, these inspired soft toys are funky, fresh, and full of personality. With little more than needle, thread, and some scraps of your favourite vintage fabric, you can make your very own fashionable friends. There are quick and easy sewing projects for beginners, as well as more advanced designs for those looking for a bigger challenge. Each unique toy includes a detailed pattern, step-by-step instructions, and tips and tricks to ensure perfect results. There's also an easy-to-read glossary that explains all the terms and techniques that you'll come across, so even if you've never felt crafty before, you'll be able to create one of these fantastic creatures. Providing endless opportunity for originality and experimentation, Softies will inspire your imagination and nurture your creative spirit.
Fashionable, easy to make toys. It doesn't come better than this. Could be made for a gift for a friend, children, or to spruce up the home. The best part is how easily customisable they are. Choose a few different fabrics, patterns or colours and its a totally new creation.
I found the instructions in this book NOT EASY to follow. It may be fine for those that sew quite a bit, but for new sewers or those who haven't sewed in some time, the instructions weren't too clear. You have to really read each "step" as otherwise you may miss something. Definately something they could improve on. Otherwise, there are 22 softies to make, including two that are knitted - including a 'Jack Sparrow' look-a-like!
I love this book, there are so many fabulous patterns! If one doesn't strike your fancy then there are two more that will. I've made about 5 toys from it so far and they've all been well-written and turned out perfectly. Definitely one of the best craft books I've ever bought.
I love this book! A great selection of quirky toys to make. The patterns are easy to follow and it has great step by step instructions. I have made at least half of the toys listed in this book and they have all turned out well.
