buy this book its so cool...i made a sock creature and all my friends loved it..its simple and easy to make and all you need is old socks or even new ones! the intructions are easy and it takes you step by step through the processes!

all the creatures are great and the best bit is one sock creature wont look the same as another!!

its also great for giving you a starting point for making your own versions of sock creatures, they go from easy to difficult, and has a gallery of all the ones he's made in the back of the book...perfect inspiration!!

An inspirational book for making crazy sock creatures. The first part provides basic techniques on stuffing, cutting and shaping, stitches and making various bits such as buck teeth etc. The middle part has detailed instructions for various creatures and the last part includes a comic featuring the sock creatures and a gallery.

Buy this book! Socks will never be the same again!!
Do you like individual soft toys? Ever wanted to make your own but dont know where to start?
Then this book is for you! The Book describes how to make the creatures really well and even an idiot (me) could follow it!!
It would also be really good for kids (not too young though as needles are involved)
I highly recommend this book. I cant praise this book enough!

This is a brilliantly designed book; the pages are vibrant and attention-grabbing. The projects are narrated with witty and entertaining remarks. The instructions are surprisingly easy to follow and good results can be obtained quickly and without practice!

"Stupid Sock Creatures" gives detailed but manageable instructions for making soft,cuddly toys or mascots from odd,discarded or brand new socks.
There are other books about making sock creatures on the market but I think this one is the best.Follow the author's clear instructions and you shouldn't go wrong.The gallery of other makers' creatures is also interesting to view and gives encouragement to the faint hearted among us.Overall a worthwhile purchase.

I made three of the sock creatures for my neices for Xmas, mostly as a joke.I also bought them a very expensive gift. Guess what!! They absolutely loved the creatures and the gift was thrown aside. My neices are twins and are 25!!

I asked for this book for my birthday as I thought it would be fun to make something out of my old socks! This book has inspired me to do so much more! It is a great read, easy to follow and definitely sparks the imagination. I love this book and I am a 30 year old big kid who likes making things. This book has also sparked the imagination of my mom (54) and my teen sister (18) and my baby sister(10) who is a very keen creator/crafter like her big(est) sister.

This is the best book that I have seen in ages. I am an avid 'maker of things' and this has really sparked my imagination. For anyone who wants to try something really different - GET THIS BOOK.

My 12 year old has been very pleased with this book, interesting illustrations and comments from the author. Quite unusual and quirky - great ideas for using up old socks! Book is good value for money.
