    this is truly one of the best books ever written i make these like crazy almost everyone i know has been given one or of these and sommmmeone steals them from other people before they have even been given so i have to rush and make replacement monsters before birthday and christmas deadlines ive managed to keep very few for myself, but thats okay because i can always make .

  2. Altivo Overo

    Great for pure amusement, or to brighten up a cloudy day Not only that, but if you can thread a needle, Murphy s instructions are enough to let you turn old worn out socks into incredibly funny or sad or even pathetic little stuffed critters I promise it will make you smile at the very least.

    I ve got a serious stash of funny old socks, just waiting to become sock creatures Maybe this is the year it happens lots of new babies in my life this past year There s motivation for you There is a lot to love about this book, and not just because it is full of great ideas to turn those old socks into cute and hopefully beloved kids toys First off, it s a book about sock sculpture, and it is written by a man, who sculpts socks I live with artists, and I know men do all kinds of womanly to some [...]

    I have to admit, this book caught my eye at the library And it s fun indeed I made my own sock creature, and my little sister got about halfway there one on of her own I like the way that these critters are supposed to look weird Gives the crafter a lot of creative freedom The problem is, now what the heck do I do with an adorable little sock monster I guess the logical answer is to give it to someone, but I always feel a little bad about giving a gift that s essentially useless Don t we all hav [...]

    This gave me so many great ideas I might incorporate a sock creature project into my craft club at the library I am useless at sewing, and the skill and difficulty required here is such that I m fairly confident that I could get through a project with no mishaps The beauty of books like this is that while the completed projects are so quirky and loveable, even a novice can easily grasp the basic framework and go on to improvise on the themes in myriad ways Not to mention the fact that it s alway [...]

    I bought this book the version with accompanying kit the summer before last when my family was taking a vacation in the Oregon wilderness and I thought it possible that my son might become bored Little did I know what I was starting His first sock monster was a stripey, one eyed, long eared fellow whom he decided to name Chigger I m not sure exactly how that opened the floodgates to the dozens of subsequent monsters that now fill our home, but the book was inspirational, to say the least I stron [...]

  7. Brandy

    Great directions, with patterns that are very adaptable so that you re not making the same four creatures in the book over and over The first half of the book is the basics how to make arms, tails, ears, necks, etc that can then be modified in any way you choose.Inspirational, but I ll probably return it to the library before I actually DO anything with it Worth keeping in the back of my head for rainy afternoons like this one , though.

  8. Cheryl

  9. Jocelynne Broderick

    I actually got this with a kit, and it came with some socks and some buttons and stuff It was fun But the two that I made were pretty ugly Not cute ugly Ugly ugly They have funny lips He gives good directions, but mostly it s handstitching, which I am not so good at Oh well, I might try them again some day.
