I highly recommend this darling little book!
Wendy L. Deppe
The ideas in this book are have a folksy / homespun feel, which I love, but also work with other fabrics which give them a more "polished look".
Shelly Rae
I found the instructions very easy to follow.

I love Japanese craft books.

No, I mean it. I *love* them. Love them so much that I'm willing to spend a zillion dollars in postage to get them here in the US, because they almost never disappoint.

I'd seen the japanese version of this book, and it's been on my wishlist at amazon.jp forEVER. So when I found out there was an english version, I dove on it with the voracity of a hungry shark on chum.

And I'm definitely not disappointed. True to the japanese craft book roots, the photography is gorgeous, the projects are so cute they'll send you running ofr insulin (in a good way), and the instructions are clear and follow-able, even to a non-seamstress like myself.

If this is a trend that publishers are heading toward -- reprinting these japanese favorites in english -- then let me be the first to stand up and applaud wildly. Maybe even whoop a little. Because if this book is any indication, it's going to be a fabulous, wild ride.

I love Japanese craft books, but I'm not so good following the Japanese instructions. So this book is just perfect--precious projects that work up fast thanks to blissfully simple instructions.

The projects are addictive, fun, and cheap to make. They're full of personality and easy to customize. I've already given a few of my creations as presents and they were a huge hit.

This book is a winner on all counts. The photographs are clear and illustrative of the many stuffed creatures the author has made out of socks and gloves. A gentle little story weaves the reader through the menagerie of characters, far beyond your average sock monkey.

Most important to me, her instructions for the construction of all the creatures are terrific. Several of my friends said they were the clearest instructions they'd ever seen for that kind of toy. She even shows variations on facial expressions.

It's hard not to fall in love with these little stuffed animals, and after seeing my copy, many of my students and friends have gone ahead and ordered their own. One note: If I were making these for a baby, I would embroider on the details, not use buttons...Enjoy!

I ordered this book because of the cute dog pictured on the cover! I was even more excited with the rest of the pictures in the book. The instructions are easy to follow with excellent pictures and drawings.

Even if you don't do any of the projects the book is great to look at. It brighted my day.

My husband better lock his sock drawer before I get to it.

I too LOVE THIS BOOK! I just got a minute to open it and have already whipped up the sweet elephant and dog- I'll definetely sew up each little project (just as soon as I can get up to the attic and pull out some knit gloves from storage!) ...but first I have to go out and replace all the socks I just cut up!

My son spotted this at the library, but most likely I'll be buying it. We simply loved the pictures of all these adorable stuffed sock friends (so much better than that creepy sock monkey). The enticing illustrations and well-written instructions inspired me (a girl who can barely sew a button) and made me think MAYBE, just maybe I can do this. Don't laugh, Mom.

I found this book to be very helpful in creating sock items and have gotten much use out of the instructions. I also own "Stupid Sock Creatures" and both these books cover the spectrum of sock animals/creatures. Both have good instructions for putting them together and both books give you specific techniques so your creative juices can take off.

I LOVE this book. I bought it with the intention of maybe making a sock monkey... I've made almost every animal. It's super easy -- the instructions and photos are great -- and fun to do. Highly Recommended!
