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.
Anne Cotton on
Wish there were more "Softies" in the range of books. Highly informative.
Rebekah Hall on
Great books ... accurate, quirky, straightforward designs ... kids love them.
Kelly Wilson on
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 its got some really cute toys in it for little ones.
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.

I'm addicted. Once you have the basics down-pat, sewing these little guys is simple, and opportunities are endless for manipulating patterns and ideas into your own original creations. Lots of fun.
