*That's people who sew. Not newly-laid pipe.
If you consider yourself offbeat-you may think you found your forgotten twin in John Murphy. If, however, you are more about "Martha Stewart" perfection-then I can say without a doubt that this is not the book for you:).
The art is great, the instructions good-he tells you which critters to start with and which are more complex. While not having patterns, the descriptions, and beasties themselves show, patterns are not what this book is about. Hey, the fact that this book was made by a guy AND has a comic in the back should sell you right there:)
So here is the book to make your order go over $25 you've been looking for. Buy it today.
While I could qualm that it's a little thin on instructions, the basics are set down well, and the general goal seems to be to take basics and explore. I haven't had this much fun since I was 8
You'd think a sock would pose many limitations, but once you get the simple, basic techniques down, you're limited only by your own imagination. The slightest alteration in stitching and element placement (limbs, facial features, etc.) can produce fantastically varying results.
You really can't go wrong with the wonderfully detailed instructions and helpful tips in this book. And get this... he even provides ideas on how to use the leftover scraps from each project. I think at that point, I was ready to give him my first born. *lol* Once I finished my first creature, I couldn't help but giggle every time I looked at him sitting on the back of the couch. Each subsequent creature's personality blossomed quickly and amusingly. I originally wanted to make these as gifts, but I'm finding that I just can't part with my new friends!
