So basically, I think that this book is better for someone who has at least a little bit of hand-sewing knowledge, or who is comfortable "winging it" at certain points. AND, since these creatures are so bizzare, the COOLest thing is that you CAN wing it, make some weird mistakes (like sew the legs on at a strange angle) and the creature will still be AWEsome!
I love this book! It gave me the basis to make some really CRAZY STUFF!
The directions in the book are complete, well diagrammed and easy to follow. The book and gallery offer a lot of ideas, but I didn't get stalled there. My imagination takes flight when I sit down to work on these guys. My designs all seem to have a propensity towards very intense, wild eyes and impossibly crooked mouths. I'm sure it's got nothing to do with my inexperienced sewing, but most likely has everything to do with the character and the personality of each creature surfacing as they take form. They are the alter egos of my siblings, after all.
You don't need to follow his patterns; his general instructions are all I needed to go to town on these.
