5.0 out of 5 stars There is lots to love about this book, May 6, 2010

This review is from: More Softies Only a Mother Could Love: 22 Hapless but Lovable Friends to Sew and Crochet (Paperback)
The projects in this book are so unique, and quirkily charming you may want to make them all. They all have so much personality and will become a favorite soft toy to adults or children alike. With smiles that go on forever, and eyes that sparkle or wink, these friends will work their way into your heart.
Some are sewn and some are crocheted. There is the cutest little set of turtles all completely attired and with appropriate hair named "Sgt. Pepper's Turtles". Other crocheted items include a easy and darling dog and frog rattle, and the "Scream".(you have to see that one)
I loved "Little Red Riding Hood"; she has a red cape, and red gingham dress, and darling little hand sewn felt purse. I am definitely making her for a granddaughter. Another granddaughter will be getting "The Princess and the Pea", a stylized princess with 13 mattresses and a pillow, and a green pea.
Another favorite of mine is the soft sided car and little trailer. It is embellished with buttons and felt flowers, and looks like it just stepped out of the `70s, and very cute!
Robot Bear has a winsome look and will be a favorite for some little boy, as will the giraffe, 2 different elephants, 2 different little dogs, patchwork horse, and the owl friend.
Topsy-Turvy Tabitha is awake and raring to go, with a happy smile, bright pigtails, and flowered dress; but flip her upside down and she is sound asleep with a beautiful, flowered nightgown. There is also a darling little pocket gnome who will be ready to hang around or be tucked into a pocket.
I have not told you about all the different softies, but I really like this book. All patterns are included in the book, and all the instructions are very easy to understand.
