Softies

Stirred by the Japanese craze for plush toys called "softies," veteran crafter Therese Laskey commissioned acclaimedartists from around the world to create projects to share. From Japan to Israel to Chile to Texas, each artist brings a wicked sense of fun to the 25 cute, weird, edgy, or artful creations offered here: a cupcake pincushion; delicate snow bunnies; a peculiar robot; and many more quirky creatures. Cheeky photos, easy instructions, and ready-to-use pattern sheets make it a cinch to whip up these irresistible gifts. Best of all, a folder at back holds the patterns while spiral binding makes for craft-friendly use.

Creating their own softies is the hot new craft for middle schoolers and this book would provide real inspiration and know how.

Really you do! Whip out your fabric stash, this adorable book will have you running to your sewing machine. Projects range from beginner to expert and make the sweetest gifts. And the photos! Never before have I seen softies captured in their natural environments so well!

It has changed my whole perspective on the world. I had no idea these squishy little critters could do so much. They paint portraits. They play catch with vegetables. They break dance. They're just so dang cute, I think they might actually be capable of saving the planet. Quick, someone send this book to Washington!
