However the book I picked up did not have full size patterns. It is required to copy and enlarge the patterns if you want to make the projects in the size the book gives dimensions for. The patterns are usable as they are to make tiny versions of each of the little creatures though.
Just wanted to comment since I purchased the book based on the full size pattern comment and was a little disappointed to see that they still needed enlarged to do the projects in the size stated.
Each creature is introduced with a description of their "personalities." Basic sewing instructions and patterns are provided. Short bios of the contributing crafts people are included.
This book will make you grin no matter how down you might feel!
One warning: This book is light on instructions. The patterns provide the general idea, but you'll need to enlarge them... and perhaps tweak them.
But, for me anyway, that's the whole point of wonderful, expressive plush dolls and figures: They should be very personal, very informal, and utterly charming as a result.
This book is ideal for experienced dollmakers, and imaginative beginners who want to create their own, unique plush figures.
"Plush-o-Rama" is also perfect for people who collect whimsical and highly original handmade dolls and figures. (In other words, non-crafters will enjoy this book, too.)
If you like structure, this book may be disappointing. It's still good but it's not written for people who need precise, full-size patterns and detailed instructions.
If you want a book that sparks your imagination, and you're ready to wake up in the middle of the night saying, "Ooh, I have to sketch (or sew) that idea right now," you'll love this book.
It's one of my favorites. When I moved from TX to NH, it's one of the few books that I hand-carried in my car.
I rarely give a book a five-star review, but -- for me -- this one earned it.

My daughters like that the patterns are enlargable. You can make your creature any size you like. They have made mini plucky chickens that turned out really cute. Read morePublished on January 16, 2010 by Wotgral
These are hilarious! They do require someone who knows what they are doing with a needle and thread but they are so much fun. Read morePublished on August 23, 2008 by Kyle D. Dutton
