Product description

Review

I've always wondered how to make sock animals but have never had a go at it, this book is a perfect guide. It's full of inspiration, lots of different animals to make, octopuses, squirrels, lions, rabbits, mice and many more from all shapes and sizes of socks and some from gloves too. Its projects are split into skill categories, those for beginners and children, for intermediate level and the more experienced. There are step by step written and photographic instructions to guide you through the projects. There is also a section at the front telling you what supplies you will need and showing a few different stitches. It also gives you a few tips for making the projects in the book. Now you have something to do with all those mysterious odd socks that appear in the washing! --The Sewing Directory, july 12, 2010

About the Author

Brenna Maloney started making sock bunnies as baby gifts. After losing count of the rabbits she had made she realized there were loads of other critters ready to be created.

I bought this book on a recommendation from a friend, whose son had enjoyed making the simple toys included at the beginning. It's good fun, written by a mum who just enjoys creating stuff with socks! She gives some patterns to try and explains each of the projects in a clear and straightforward way. You don't need to be a sewing expert, or even specially skilled at crafts, to have a lot of fun making the sock creatures in Brenna Maloney's book.
I will be teaching a workshop for 9-16-year-olds, all about "Sock Pets"; the ideas in this book will be very useful to me, as I come up with some projects for my workshop, to cater for all abilities. There are plenty of simple projects and some really original ideas too.
A lot of fun, easy to follow instructions, suitable for anyone - just a very good book!

Although I've not had chance to make anything from this book yet I absolutely love it. Even if you never make anything from it, the humorous way it is written will have you chuckling along as you read. The instructions are very clear so even a novice would not be intimidated and I love how there are sections from easy makes up to slightly harder ones. Would love to find some of the socks with toes in them to make the dinosaur!

Some great ideas and easy to follow instructions to make your own little sock critters. Even if you have little skill with sewing you could this a go.
