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.

I love felties, stuffies & all sorts of quirky softies. This book is designed to inspire, teach & make converts out of everyone. My kids love it, they've made a couple of the simpler toys to give away to friends. I have the first book, Softies Only a Mother Could Love..and almost impossibly, this second book is even better than the first. There are a few crocheted little guys, too, to the delight of my teenage daughter who fancies herself a amigurumi ninja! Love the Sgt. Pepper's Turtles; with some flax seeds or beans in with the stuffing, they are a perfect set sure to make a ho-hum office cubicle a happier place! These books are really great scrap-basket busters, too. Have a bunch of not-too-small-to-throw-away fabrics? You know, those that are too tiny to make into even a small coin purse, yet you don't want to pitch them cos they cost $18/yard? (I think all sewers probably have a bucketful!) Now they can be used for darling little arms, legs, even a nifty little necktie for Mister Rooster. I guarantee your friends, family & even craft-swap partners will love to get a little picker-upper in their mailbox, too! These are too adorable & not just for mothers, either! :)

I am so excited to make some of these adorable softies, having exhausted most of the options in the other book I had gotten a year ago. These are so whimsical and fresh--I love the rooster in particular! The patterns and directions are easy to follow. Thanks!

I purchased the first Softies Only a Mother Could Love, and returned it. Cute, but not better than any of the multitude of others available. I checked this one out of the library before buying it, but I must have been having a mind blip - hen it arrived, I couldn't figure out what possessed me. It isn't bad, I'm not saying that, but really, there are so many Softy books out there. Some are much more comprehensive. There are some cute dolls in the book, and if you don't have any of the others, then this would be fine - if you have some others, you will probably not need this one.

This is my first foray into the world of softie-making. This is a good introductory book, with clear instructions and illustrations. It is also good to flick through for inspiration to embellish and create your own. No full sized patterns, but most are simple enough to enlarge by hand. I have made two of the softies, and they're great! Would encourage this book (and its sister book) for beginner sewers. Enjoy!

This is a good book to learn how to make cuddly creatures or just to look at if you do not sew. The animals (critters) are cute and quirky. A number of softie artists contributed to make the book. I enjoyed looking at them all and made some for friends. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. If you need a quick gift for anyone "young at heart" this could be you.

I often purchase books on amazon for new patterns and ideas. This book has quickly placed among my favourites for the creativity and ease of instruction. I had expected adorable little keepsakes, but I did not expect each one to be so different from the next, and to love every one of them.

I have both of these books and this second one certainly won't disappoint. The items are all cute and modern and the instructions are very easy to follow. I have made several of the items and everybody loves them. If your just starting out, this book is definitely one to get, as is it's predecessor.
